Through the years, I’ve enjoyed working with many different art mediums and I’m always excited to learn new techniques. My heart’s desire is to inspire people through my art. My latest passion is mixed-media…It’s like a melting pot of all the mediums I love! Come learn more about me and my creative journey on my blog, A Creative Life, at: http://debbiesaenz.typepad.com
