Glenda CastilloHello. My name is Glenda Castillo and I’d like to tell you a little about myself.

I was originally an attorney before I moved to Florida with my husband and my two children. From that point on, I dedicated my time entirely to raising my children and supporting my family.

Once both of my children went to school, I returned to school myself and obtained an Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design. Visual art was something that I had always been interested in, and this is when I began painting – murals, landscapes and cards. Then, I created Enchant Art.

I traveled to Europe to learn more about the great masters of art and to experience their masterpieces for inspiration. As I was exploring Rome, Venice, London and many areas of Spain, I had the opportunity to visit museums, churches and monuments that became part of my inspiration.

Besides great works of art, another source that inspires me is nature with the magic of color and shape involved in every flower, bird, and wonderous insect.

I eventually found that painting and photography was not only a talent for me, but something that I greatly enjoyed doing, something that engrossed me and provided an immense feeling of satisifaction. To me, the real meaning of making art is to express myself, my heart, my emotions, my energy on a piece of paper or canvas.

I hope my positive message of life reaches you and all who are blessed with your expressions of love.

I want to make this blog not just about me but about you too. Please send me questions about photography, art, crafts, painting or just about anything philosophical in life. Blessings.

    I am new to your website. I am wondering if you already have a post about how to create my own image and then have my silhouette cut it? I am wanted to make food labels for a party-like a cute bracket type image, then type words and design inside, print and then have the silhouette cut it out. Do you design it in photoshop?

    Also, if I download an image from quickutz, can it be opened in photoshop to then add my words and details to?

    Hi Tara: I use Inkscape to create my designs. I have different instructions how to use the program and even cut from it. If you use the ROBO software that came with your Silhouette you can weld the image with other images or text.
    If you need any help with that let me know.

    Hello Gretchen: I’m so glad that you are considering going back to school. I think you need to consider some things before you choose your career:
    1. There are different branches in Graphic Design. Which one are you interested in? Where do you want to work… if you want to work for others? What do you like to design…web pages…logos?
    2. The career is very competitive and doesn’t pay much at the beginning. Of course if you are super talented you can go faster.
    3. Personally, I found out that I learned more experimenting with different media than in a classroom. But going to classes force you to get into the different programs like Photoshop or Illustrator for example and expose you to wonderful classes like letterpress and art.
    4. I graduated from Seminole State which was SCC before. I had great teachers but really everything depends in how much talent you have to develop what you learn.
    5. Maybe you can do some kind of internship in a Graphic Design Company and see if you like the environment and pace of the job.
    I hope the best for you. If I can help you with anything else please let me know. Many blessing for you and your family.
