Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Beauford wants you to know. . .
I don't live at school. . .
I paint, draw or crochet when I have any spare time because I love beautiful color.
I am lucky to have had some opportunities to travel. In 2014, the year my dad turned 80, we had a family reunion in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. In 2016 I traveled to Cloudcroft, New Mexico to visit my parents, and to take two art classes. Later in the summer, I went to the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma City for the Prix de West Art Show. Here's a link: http://nationalcowboymuseum.org/
