Mrs. Lee-Piskoti feels fortunate to have found a vocation that was able to marry her love of art with her love of children. As an art educator, she is able to enlighten, relax and teach young minds something that has always been very important in her life. The highlights of her career have been watching her students go on to be successful in whatever they choose to do, whether it is art or something else such as computer design. She has always told her students to follow what makes them happy. In her own journey through art, Mrs. Lee-Piskoti was inspired by her mentors and parents who always encouraged her. One of her mentors, Robert Colescott, was a very famous painter and her teacher at California State University.
