About Denise

Me in 1st grade

       I think I had the same haircut from the time I was 4 until I was ready for Jr. High School.  Like the bangs?   To hear my mom tell it, I wouldn't let her brush or comb my hair so what else was she to do.

2nd grade
        I grew up in southern California with my parents and two younger   brothers.  Besides being the typical "tom boy,"  I loved to draw.  From the time I opened my first box of crayola crayons I was hooked.  In school, besides my ability to run fast, drawing was my one claim to fame. I remember once in forth grade my teacher had me work on the class mural during class time.  It was great for my self-esteem and great to get out of math.
