ABOUT THIS RETREAT

Are you ready to learn a new technique to help your art evolve?

This class contains step-by-step instructions to take you from the blank canvas to finished product.

In this class, you will learn:

  • How to improve depth and composition with texture

  • How to add  a sculptural element to your paintings 

  • Different techniques for adding texture

  • How to blend colors on and off the canvas

This class is for beginning artists to the more seasoned artists. 


So come join me, let’s paint, let’s have fun, and you will get to make some new friends!

As an artist 

I find the act of painting to be euphoric.

I have a passion for color, texture, movement and design that are conveyed in my paintings.

My inspiration is pulled from my surroundings, experiences and my imagination.

I began by creating abstract shapes on the canvas with a texture medium,

then the painting evolves into compositions in which color and texture are the primary subject.

The image is not the focus, but rather a part of the process.

My goal is to have the elements of design, color and texture

unleash a sense of calming emotion for the viewer.

My art is a piece of who I am, 

it is about the process of discovery, my personal feelings, the colors that inspire me,

and it is created to soothe the soul.
