Dear Fellow Artist, Art Lover, Beginning Painter,
I love to teach. Helping another person to have that “aha” moment and inspiring them to do their art on a regular basis is my goal. Doing art, making art, comprises many facets. Do we want to paint still life, intimate landscape or portrait? Depending on which, how do we start, how do we keep colors lively, how do we use our brush as an extension of us? And then, after we have been painting for awhile, the other questions which begin to surface…how to stay excited, how to grow in our work, how to photograph art work, what about selling…lots to explore! The one ingredient that will be present in each of my classes is my passion to excite, motivate, and inspire others to find true joy in expressing life through painting!
