Mona Lisa Ascoli

Mona Lisa Ascoli has dreamed of becoming an oil painter since watching her father paint during her childhood. She studied both Art History and Nursing at Columbia University in New York, and then pursued a Nursing career in critical care. She began taking classes in Drawing and Painting after moving to San Diego, and began studying painting with Lela Harty in 1999. With her family raised, she is now enjoying pursuing her second career as a painter.
