Mimi was the absolute best choice for my daughter's birthday party. Her face painting skills are incredible and balloons were great! She transformed some kids into the Hulk and others really beautiful butterflies with pearls or even googly eyes in them. I would highly recommend her to anyone. My friends all wanted her for their future parties.

Toya did an exceptional job painting me golden for Bmore Pride! Her ingenuity and impeccable aesthetic are beautifully framed by her open and willing approach. Can't wait for my next opportunity to enjoy her work!

Paint in your own home with your sweatpants on and a bottle of wine! I really enjoy taking classes with Michelle! Don't worry, no experience necessary. I had none, and still managed to paint presentable pieces. Michelle’s personality is fun and motivating! She really lets you be yourself and express whatever you would like in your art piece. There is no wrong way to paint with Michelle. She will guide you and teach you some cool techniques along the way! Painting is so relaxing, it's like therapy and Michelle is my therapist!

I never thought I would be any good at painting. Sometimes you need to just jump in and challenge yourself! So I did..... Christine is such a great teacher....patient and she explains technique. I now have several paintings hanging in my home that I did and everyone who sees them are impressed. Attached just a couple of pics.....each took me 1.5 hour sessions to complete (acrylics)

It was nice meeting Mrs. Wendy. She arrived on time and was very friendly. My son enjoyed the class and we plan to continue several lessons more until my son can be at the level he needs to be in.

    Brian is a truly gifted and passionate artist. He has never spent a day without his artistic eye focused keenly on his community and the natural world. His portraits, self-portraits, and still lifes are full of dynamic light and shadow and convey deep emotion. Brian's painting and drawings both tell a story and inspire reflection, transport and give pause. If you are drawn to the detail and style of the Dutch masters and appreciate a rustic, sincere attention to subject matter, Brian is an artist to explore further.

    Acrylic painting lessons for two! I was very pleased that the owner was so accomodating to our needs. Both of us worked on the same basic picture, and the instructor was quite helpful. We think we're going to sign up for some more lessons!

    Nina taught a number of drawing, painting, and sculpture classes for my homeschooling group. Since our children were different ages, she planned a lesson for the older or more capable students as well as one for the younger students, and in that way she was able to accommodate several different age groups with the help of a supervising parent. Nina's thoughtful suggestions to each student brought out individual abilities, besides the basic skills that she addressed. She was particularly adept at bringing self-conscious and reluctant students into the art arena.

    I came upon Stephen Estrada’s paintings through his exhibition the at Delaplaine Visual Art Center in Frederick MD. His striking, mural sized sea paintings made me feel like I was there. I purchased one of his large pieces for my apartment in NYC where it is prominently displayed. Stephen delivered and installed the painting himself and was great in putting me in touch with a lighting expert so I could properly light the painting. He was great to work with, communicated well, and his creativity and professionalism is outstanding. I highly recommend Stephen to anyone looking to commission a high quality mural or work of art.

    Zachary immediately put me at ease and made me feel quite comfortable about having my portrait painted. He took the time to get to know me better during preliminary meetings. We discussed his process and ideas for the painting as well as my own expectations. As a result, I felt relaxed and unself-conscious the entire time Zach worked on the painting. I feel this is reflected in the very warm, natural and life-like portrait that he delivered. It is painted with great skill and vividly expresses my personality. Zach was very professional in his manner throughout the portrait process. It was a wonderful experience and I am very happy with the result!

    About

    I've been doing art for as long as I can remember, and I love working with people to improve their technical skills and help them develop an eye for what works best in a composition. I'll find your skill level and we'll build off that, starting with what you think your greatest weaknesses are, then making goals to expand your abilities. Anyone can create great art, given time, practice, and guidance.
