I hired Laura to work at my son's 6th birthday party as a face painter, and she did a phenomenal job. I had recently taken my son to a friend's birthday party that Laura was at, and all the kids were so thrilled. She's got a great personality and is a real "people person." When I spoke with her, she showed me her art portfolio, and you can't really tell by the face painting, but she's certainly a fine artist - she may be painting my son's bedroom in the future!

I got so busy trying to get everything done the day of the party, and I almost forgot about the face painting. Laura was great and very friendly with the kids, I think the kids got a little bit carried away with the body painting because my son looked like a wall art after, LOL every single kid was happy and all of them got as many as they want. Thank You Laura I hope we didn't send you home exhausted! ;-)

Recently, it was our son's 5th birthday, and lucky us, he had developed a passing obsession with tattoos. Of course, we weren't going to let him get a tattoo, but we decided some face and arm painting would be fun. Laura was able to create any design or picture the kids wanted, and our son ended up getting a spider man face to our delight. The party was a huge hit!

We hired Monica to paint a small design on a wall in our home...within an hour, we were hiring her to paint a full mural on the wall of our garage. We love Monica!! She is brilliant and so very talented! She is friendly, professional, and expeditious and her charges are very reasonable. The mural she painted for us is very nostalgic as it includes dogs we've owned and her artistic abilities were nothing less than perfect even though she never got to meet these dogs. Monica is coming back for a third time to our home because we keep finding areas that we want her artistry to touch. Monica is the best and she can never retire because there is no one better!!! Hire this gem of an artist, you won't be sorry......

We wanted “just a little something” painted on a large bare wall in our bedroom. I showed Monica a tree that I love in our courtyard and asked her to bring it inside. A couple of hours later we had exactly what we wanted, in just the right shades of color and she surprised us with two little hummingbirds, too.

Monica painted a mural in my man cave that brought a tear to my eye. Her work is beyond exceptional and I highly recommend her.

Kelsey Shwetz privately tutored me in painting and drawing several years ago. She is so sweet and a pleasure to work with. She has a very calm presence that makes it very easy to work together. We worked together for about a year and she taught me invaluable skills about anatomy, proportion, oil painting techniques and brush care. She gave me the confidence to work on my art in my own time and I continue to make portrait paintings today. Kelsey is very supportive and was able to understand what I needed guidance in and provided that. I would strongly recommend Kelsey for future private tutoring.

I am 69 and always wanted to be able to draw. Never could do anything much beyond stick figures. Faces? Forget it. But look what I've accomplished after about 10 lessons, copying a Matisse portrait using Conte crayons (and I work very slowly)!!! Kelsey is a patient and intuitively gifted teacher and a delight to sit across from as I learn. I'm so glad that I found her. I highly recommend that you study with her too.

I certainly recommend lessons with Kelsey. She easily explained each step it took to complete a representational painting, which seemed really daunting at first, and that it was a delight to be able to come and work at an artist's studio.

I absolutely love Marina Rehrmann's work! So expressive, wonderful color combinations and so creative. I never get tired of her work on my walls. She did a peice for me a few years back and I still find my husband just standing there admiring it sometimes. We absolutely love it. Timeless art. Very professionally done. You shouldn't miss it!!

I have hired Flower Child Face and Body Art for 2 large events held at my local elementary school. Learon is beyond professional and wonderful with all the children she did face painting for. Both events had over 1000 people in attendance and Learon was incredible, fast, and very patient with each child. Her art is flawless and she was able to keep the line moving fast without sacrificing her pristine face paint for the kids. She arrived early to both events and was incredibly easy to work with. I plan on hiring her for any opportunity I can! Birthday parties, school events, and would recommend her to anyone! Truly one of the best companies I have ever worked with!

Learon showed up promptly with a professional set up. The kids really liked her and the Face Paintings looked great. Vibrant colors and artistic details. We had about 30 kids at the party and at no time did it feel like kids were waiting impatiently for their turn. My daughter and her friends were happy and the kids parents were saying how great the Face Painter was. Would definitely recommend!

I take violin lessons at this school, and so far, they certainly have helped me improve on my skills, and have kept me motivated to continue practicing my instrument. It's a much more enriching experience when your lessons are one on one. I had been taking violin at school for 5 years, but taking lessons taught me that I still had a lot to learn. It's much easier to realize where your struggling and thereby improve on it quicker. I have to recommend this school to anyone seeking ways to improve their musical prowess!

Lisa is an excellent instructor. She is very knowledgeable about composition, color mixing, and perspective in regards to painting on canvas, and also offers a fun, patient approach while teaching. Here drawing skills are just phenomenal. I have been taking lessons from Lisa for the past 5 years, and I learn something new every time we adventure out to paint. You will have a wonderful time with her. Her paintings are beautiful, and she will enhance your abilities no matter what level you start at. I'm always grateful for the time I get to spend with her.

Lisa is a terrific artist and a valued teacher who has won numerous awards for her work. She came to take art lessons from me. It was clear that she didn't really need lessons. When I moved away I suggested that my students go to her for lessons.

Mo was amazing! The portrait was more than I expected! He's very prompt at responding to my million questions. He wasn't pushy at all, he was very patient with me in obtaining a young picture of my mom. My parents didn't have a wedding picture so I hired Mo to create a wedding portrait of my parents as a Christmas present for my Mom since my Dad passed away last year. I sent him a young picture of my mom and dad and a dress my mom would've picked as her wedding dress. I can't express how grateful I am that I found him. Definitely highly recommended!!!

We attended the Studo's monthly Art Party as a date night and had SUCH a good time- the atmosphere was really fun and relaxed. I enjoyed it SO much I am now attending weekly painting lessons with Moises. I have no natural artistic talent but Moises is so nurturing and patient that I actually feel like I'm learning and getting a little better every week.

I have been taking painting lessons with Alfredo for the last 3 months, and we have finished almost 10 paintings together. Every week, I look forward to Alfredo's teachings, and detailed approach to color and texture. I put my paintings up in my house, and no one can believe that I did these! I can't believe it myself. Alfredo was committed, persistent and very patient in working with me. He is super professional, punctual and just overall a positive person. My technique and skills have improved tremendously. Who knows maybe I will open up an exhibition soon... Thank you Alfredo! you are appreciated.

Stacey has been a friend, co-worker and a mentor to me since I arrived in Santa Monica 20 years ago. Throughout our friendship and while working together, her creativity has guided me in times when I've been 'stuck.' Not only would we pull out our notebooks to write, we started to meditate and create our own destiny via talking and via art - coloring, painting, drawing, poetry and more. To say it has been beneficial is an understatement. Stacey is very soothing, patient, creative and wise. Her unique approach to calmness through art is an added value to anyone who has tried everything stuck in a rut. So....go color with Stacey. It's fun. Brings back childhood memories of times when you were carefree and you'll find yourself at peace and laughing.

I'm not sure if I have enough of the right words to truly convey how much Stacey's guidance and support have helped nurture my artistic vision and sense of self as a photographer these past few years. She's my main touchstone for ideas and creative visualization, and she's the first to firmly (but in a positive way!) keep me moving forward when I'm stuck or feeling frustrated. My artistic growth wouldn't be what it is today without her -- can't thank you enough, Stacey!

I want to paint scenes from nature to hang around the house and give to friends and family.

I did a nature scene that I hung in my bathroom of an African sunset and I loved blending the sky and the colors.
