Mona Lisa DeAlba

    My passion for art started very early in my life. While I was in
    Kindergarten, my teacher gave me crayons and paper and instructed me
    to draw and use my imagination. That's when my enthusiasm for art
    began and I subsequently knew I wanted to illustrate in some manner.
    During High School, my Creative Writing teacher conveyed to me that I
    had a good imagination; this teacher was a positive influence in my life
    and encouraged me to continue writing. While other students were out
    playing, I found myself creating small books with stories that included
    characters and illustrations. After going through some difficulties later
    in life, I received Christ, and with His help, my passion for art extended
    into painting. I have been painting for over 10 years now. I truly love
    what I get to do, and I believe I’m here to share my passion for painting to others.
