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.
