I had the pleasure of attending Lillian Gray’s Art School since its inception and have grown in my art in leaps and bounds. She always brings another dimension to my understanding of the medium I am using. The Art History gives a lot of context to what we are doing. My Art is my therapy and Lillian is a highly qualified and accomplished therapist in this area.
