My name is Toni McGraw and from a very young age I knew that when I grew-up, I wanted to be an artist. I paint and I paint a variety of subjects most of them using acrylic. In addition to painting, the challenge of creating a new function and making pretty work out of discarded common items interests me as well. I hope these artworks, that have been created using using common discarded items, bring awareness to our fragile environment. As a child I took sporadic private lessons, throughout my life I took risks and seized many art opportunities. I have painted many murals (Challenger Space Center, Arizona) and have taught High School Art. I have and continue to exhibit my art in many of the local Harrisburg and surrounding area galleries. I love art as much today as I did as a child. I am an artist!
