About me

Gender Female
Occupation Artist, Retailer, Activist, Insurance Agent
Location El Centro, California, United States
Introduction I'm the one you know that has too many irons in the fire, yet is always ready to take on something else. I am an entrepeneur in the broadest sense...I've never been content focusing on one thing at a time. Call me flighty, if you will, but I always come through. I teach history at the local community college and university, do massage on the side and spend my days selling health and life insurance. To relax I read, travel and paint. MonicArtista is my collection of paintings and calendars and notecards based on my artwork. I'm also involved in the Calexico Chamber of Commerce, Sorptimist International, MANA de Imperial Valley.
