New Moon in Aquarius

Tonight is the New Moon and this month it enters Aquarius! (which is both my sun sign and rising sign❤) In any month the New Moon is the time for new beginnings and fresh starts, and this year it is particularly powerful since the New Moon falls on a Monday, the sacred day of the Moon. Aquarius is the sign of mystery, intrigues, magic and tranquility which adds to the power and mystery of tonight's New Moon.

Not one to stay in one place very long she continued perfecting her love of the arts while traveling the world studying painting and illustration in Europe, Hawaii, California, and Australia and eventually graduated cum laude with a BA in illustration and continued on to do her graduate work at the Royal College of Art in London, England.  A few years later she added to her creative interests and studied letterpress and bookmaking at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. After receiving her undergraduate degree she began work at the Getty Museum in Malibu for almost a decade which allowed her to study and work among some of the most famous classic works of art in the world from Vincent Van Gogh to Manet. Teaching in the galleries of the Getty started her career in Art Education. She has been teaching painting and drawing to young artists and adults at the Davis Arts Center since 2006.
