Hello! I’m Elizabeth, aka Miss Lizzy, aka Mona Lizzy of Mona Lizzy’s Art Studio. I teach art classes in San Diego Schools as well as around town. Here’s a bit you might like to know about me.
I grew up in a suburb of Milwaukee,Wisconsin. If you know anything about Wisconsin, winter lasts a long time. So as a child I began drawing, sewing and painting.
As I grew up I took lots of art classes. In high school I began working in local print shops doing silkscreening and graphic design. During community college, as a graphic design major, I decided sitting behind a computer was not for me, nor the cold weather. So I moved to San Diego in 2002.
In 2006 I was licensed in cosmetology. However, while awaiting my cosmetology license I began working at a Preschool teaching art. This is where my love for teaching children grew. While I worked as a stylist, I went back to school working toward a degree in art education. I graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Art and Anthropology.
In 2009 Mona Lizzy’s began as a small idea, taking my talents and abilities and bringing them together. I love creating, and learning. What a better way to do that then by teaching others what I have learned. I started teaching in schools that lacked art programs. From my students, I quickly discovered that parents, adults were interested in learning about art and craft techniques. Hence, Craft & Cocktail Night was born! An adult only art class.
Mona Lizzy’s continues to grow, adding more art classes, hosting art & craft events, helping sponsor other local artist and still styling hair. I love what I do! I can only hope to learn from and inspire you. I appreciate your support and opportunity to work with you and your children.
