No introductions needed....continued

                                 Mary McCullar

     Our next Instructor spotlight is Mary McCullar. Mary is a retired Spanish teacher that taught for 43 years. She has lived in Bartlett most of her life. She attended and taught at Bartlett High school. 

     Mary shared that she has been married to her husband Gene for 41 years. They do not have any children, but they do have 2 wonderful Siamese cats who are almost 16 years old. When asked about why she does what she does, Mary responded: “I have always been interested in crafting. I have gone through several phases - knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, Tole painting, water coloring, decoupaging, wood crafting, beading and paper cafting. I began making cards several years ago when I had a friend who was terminally ill. It was impossible to find anything except a "Get Well" card. So,, I began to make my own. When Copics arrived on the scene, I reluctantly took a class. I was determined not to buy any more markers! After one class, I was hooked.”    

     Mary stated that she teaches because she enjoys working with people, she enjoys teaching and she loves Copic Markers. She also said she likes the challenge of doing new things. She is inspired by students requests for certain pictures to color and that Eclectica provides a great opportunity for her to do this. So join Mary in her upcoming classes and let her teach you how to “Cullar” your world with Copic Markers. 

Mary’s Upcoming Classes:
