I have been painting for almost 30 years. After I graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Ca, I worked for Disney Feature Animation Company for 5 years, designing movie sets. I did illustrations and graphic designs for multiple significant clients, such as University of San Francisco, CA.
For the past ten years, I have been having my paintings exhibited in different national artshows, in which I received multiple awards. The most recent award was First Place from the Haggin Museum, Stockton, Ca.
I started teaching art classes to adults and teens three years ago. My students love me, and they have been growing amazingly in artistic skills as well as in creative concepts.
For samples of my works and tutorial videos, you can check out

Mina is very encouraging and has an extensive knowledge of artistic techniques. She teaches students in a manner that is very positive and I have learned so much from her.
I like the atmosphere and how nicshe is to all of us! Plus the overall fact that she takes the time to teach each and every one of us!
I really love the varieties of sets, there is always something new every week. There is always unique techniques that I find myself learning with every session; I never thought that I could be capable of making such intricate pieces.
She's an amazing painter!!! And a very good teacher, shearing her talent and experience.!!!!
