My artist dream is to have the freedom, time and money to paint pictures that “wow” people. I have had an interest in art since I was a teenager and enjoy painting with acrylic and oil paint. I am mostly a self-taught artist and enjoy painting landscapes, animals and pictures that move me. I do paintings that have intense color and where light plays an important part with the highlights, reflections or sunrays. My painting style is realistic and detailed and at times I do abstract. I have a passion for art and am thankful to God for this time to follow my passion.
I have my studio in my home, where I teach drawing and painting classes year round to children and adults. The classes are offered on a variety of days and times, including daytime for homeschoolers. Classes meet once a week for six weeks and are limited to six students. My studio is a non-smoking and Christian environment. I especially like seeing my students grow in their artwork, knowledge and ability. Each fall, my students exhibit their artwork at the local library for a month. Each year this exhibit has been very well received. (To registerr email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
I realize that not all people will enjoy my artwork, but I love seeing the first expression of “wow” on their face as they look at my paintings and then state that looks so real. My personal goal is to continue to grow as an artist. I am always looking for new ideas, techniques or methods to enhance my painting style. God has given us such a fantastic array of subjects, scenes, and colors in his majestic creation, that painting is always exciting.
