Dianne is awesome! We just threw a birthday party for our 3 yr old and hired Dianne to do face painting on 30+ little kids. She did an excellent job, creating adorable paints on all of them! She painted things on request as well as created great ideas for our Fairy themed party. The kids and parents were so happy. On top of it all, she has a terrific, kind personality! I would definitely hire her for painting again and highly recommend her to everyone :)

Sarah had a lot of patience with a beginning student, and offered a lot of great, basic tips on how-to watercolor paint. She quickly understood my experiences and lack of experiences and fashioned a one on one session to suit my needs. I would highly recommend her for your artistic needs.

I was a student of Melba's for three years at St. Edwards University in Austin, TX, and an actor under her direction in many productions there at Mary Moody Northen Theater. I count Melba as one of the few key mentors that profoundly influenced my direction and trajectory as an artist. Melba is an expert at identifying and fostering collaborative relationships. The creative family she brought me into at St. Edwards continues to thrive together more than ten years after. We're all still doing what we set out to do at St. Edwards, in one way or another, and I know we all draw from Melba's many lessons and inspirations regularly.

Haley did a piece of calligraphy for me that included an illuminated border and an original water color painting of my friend celebrating his first Mass. She also without my request sent the work to my friend with a note that she wrote in calligraphy explaining the gift. My friend thought the note should be framed as well! Haley was great to work with, and I was very satisfied with the end product.

Really really think hard about what it is that you want. The more clear you are about your needs and expectations, the less I have to tease it out. This action on your part up front will make the whole process move faster and in the direction you desire.


I offer custom mural design projects for your homes and businesses as well as any large-scale design and painting work that you may need! I have been working as a professional artist for the past 5 years. I love what I do, and I love meeting and working with new clients in order to create custom large-scale artwork that others can enjoy!

This class/lesson is on Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Hobby Lobby on Hwy 183 and Lakecreek Parkway (near 620).

We offer painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, portfolio development and more! Please visit the web site. Art classes are designed to teach the mastery of materials, understand concept, art history and art appreciation as the students' creative abilities are ignited to express what they see through exciting assignments that become masterpieces. My philosophy is simple. I teach individuals not only the tools for success in the way they create art, but also tools for success in how they express life. ACAC is a one-of-a-kind experience. I integrate the elements of art, principals of design, and fun into one course of study. Through art you'll discover who you really are, beyond boundaries, beyond limitations and beyond definitions. I offer the highest quality art tools and techniques to expand the student's mind, enhance their critical thinking and provide greater perception of life's possibilities. Regardless of an individual's background, age or skill level, my classes take you to new heights.
