She's very encouraging and doesn't pressure me to do too much as I'm busy doing a lot of things. It's perfect for me to learn slowly. She's very friendly and professional and I really enjoy our lessons.

Karl Soderlund is a true professional. I have been taking oil painting classes with Karl for the past 4.5 years. He has helped me become a better painter/artist because of his knowledge of art and his ability to teach through example and explanation. He has a great deal of patience and dedication with his students, taking a personal interest in each student's ability level and style. In a nurturing way, he develops each student to their full potential, by raising the bar of each finished piece. After painting for the past 20 years, and having other instructors before Karl, I can honestly recommend Karl as the one of the best of the best!

One of the most difficult things about moving from our old house to our new one was leaving the fabulous walls that Peri painted in our dining room. She created a magical space in which many meals were enjoyed and I still miss that room today. I was delighted when Peri agreed to travel to our new house and work her magic on a powder room and our dining room here…two of our favorite places in our house now. I will always be thankful we commissioned Peri for a canvas painting that we love and will take with us wherever we go! Peri is a joy to be around and an amazingly talented artist. While I'm thrilled she's thriving in NYC, I selfishly would like to have her back in California!

I was so fortunate to find Melissa through my neighbor who hired her to paint a wall mural in her sons room. Melissa has now completed both of my children's bedrooms, and the outcome was BEYOND WORDS INCREDIBLE! (Both rooms can be seen on her website - Yankees and Music, and NO ONE does a better Yankee room than Melissa :). Her work is impeccable, she is a true professional, pays SO MUCH attention to the small details in her work, and she is just an AMAZING artist! Anyone that sees my kids rooms has the same reaction - the first word out of their mouth is 'WOW'! Look no further if you want a beautiful piece of art created for you because Melissa is definitely the person that can make your vision come true. She is THE BEST!!!

Laura's paintings are beautiful and inspire faith. I feel grateful whenever I see public declarations of faith, (either with words, music or art,) and not doubt. Thank you for sharing your talents and testimony through your Christ series paintings.

I have participated in a few painting classes with Donna and have very much enjoyed the experience. She guides students not only on a technical level, but also into a creative way of thinking which has helped in my other artistic pursuits using seed beads and textiles. I have been able to view the scope of Donna's work at various exhibits and in her personal collection and am truly awed by her talent. I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to go on a journey into creative expression under her guidance

I have known the owners of The Painted Bird for a long time. Melissa has designed logos for me (and will again, soon, too) that are clean, fresh and lovely. I have kept up with the company's projects via Facebook and am always in awe over how every project turns out The kids who make the projects must be so proud of what they make, and they are led by kind, compassionate expert artists. I wouldn't hesitate hiring this team for a party, classroom project, club event, after school activity if the objective is for the kids to leave with a stunning piece of art in their hands and huge smiles on their faces! ~Marilyn, Two Frugal Fairfielders

Karen painted a beautiful picture of 2 of our dogs, 1 of them had passed away. My husband cried when he saw it. She painted it from a picture I gave her. Absolutely beautiful. I have seen other work she has done and they are just outstanding.

Faith is a generous and effective art teacher. She is a kind and delightful guide. My experience in a three-day watercolor workshop with Faith was perfect. I was unstressed, challenged and inspired. Faith asked questions about my goals and knowledge before the workshop; she prepared an amazingly organized learning experience. I learned through fun exercises and a painting project about the tools of the trade and many basic and advanced techniques, such as direct painting, wet in wet, washes, using masking fluid, transferring an image to paper, color mixing, glazing, broken wash, lifting a “boo boo” with a scrubber and more. She gave exquisite attention and encouraging guidance without putting her hand on my work. She painted along side to provide examples. Faith’s artistic skills and talents are matched and then some by her generosity, kindness and hospitality. I still don’t understand how she convinced me that there are no “mistakes” and you can scrub out a “boo boo”! Faith offered an amazingly affordable way for me to explore watercolor. She also offered very affordable advice on what limited tools of the trade to purchase to continue on my own in an unlimited fashion. She was very flexible in scheduling to meet my special requests. I look forward to future classes with Faith, after I paint on my own for a while. I found the experience of water coloring and of being with Faith a very special double joy!
