sSusie.jpgusie bell

I took several art classes while at Chico State and finished a degree in Communications with an option in Graphic design. For many years I owned an art store in Sacramento teaching hundreds of students, young and old, how to create their own pieces of art. I enjoy seeing others flourish with their art and be happy with what they have accomplished.
