Hello all, my name is Burt Murphy. I have been teaching and making art for over 15 months and I love it. I am from a small town in the US called Loveland in the state of Colorado, but I live in the country of Mexico about an hour and a half south of Mexico City in the town of Cuernavaca. My wife is from here and we have 3 daughters that we have taught both Spanish and English since they were babies. Besides teaching English I am an artist at home. I am glass artist and I make ocean animals (mostly sea turtles) out of glass using an intensely hot flame from a specially designed torch. I have been making glass art since I was 16 years old and I was taught by my father Ron Murphy. You can find my work at www.tugasglass.com or at www.glassnfire.com with my dad's work.
And thank you for letting me be a part of this great experience.
