What got me started -
My elementary school art teacher Ms. Marie Goss (R.I.P.) convinced my parents to allow me to participate in professional life drawing classes with adults at a professional art museum school in the affluent section of my hometown. She recognized my artistic spirit and exposed me to Art Museums, the Renaissance, African Art & so, so much more.
