“I am so fortunate to have a career as an artist. I feel lucky to look forward to going to work. I appreciate my loyal, kind clients from Cottage Grove and Eugene area, as well as the opportunity to work with amazing students from all over the state. I am constantly striving to stretch as an artist and as a person and I do my best to enjoy each day.
Something you may not know about me? I love musical theatre and kale!”
Gil T. Rodello:
“After spending 15 years as a graphic designer I was ready for a change. I had already worked at Garden of Ink for a few years and was familiar with the operations of a tattoo shop, so I became the shop manager, learned to tattoo and now I teach the theory portion of our curriculum. And I love it! It’s so nice to get from behind the desk and work with real people again.
I’m not a big fan of kale.”
