Cheryl Did a great job helping my wife and progress beyond our current skillsets. My wife needed more help with her basics and getting comfortable with painting and I was ready for a little more advanced things. I would recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking for good one on one or group painting lessons!

I am taking private lessons from Nicole one day a week, learning basic drawing and color skills. She is very professional, patient, and I am learning a lot. I am very grateful for this opportunity, and would highly recommend her to anyone.

We hired her for face painting, and she was able to do Henna as well. Very friendly with all the kids, and was able to do special request designs. I will definitely be booking Creative Hands Studio again for our next party!

I absolutely loved working with Janet. I am a fairly shy person, and though I have the passion to try new things, I rarely have the courage to do so. My first few lessons, where scary for me, I could barely muster up the courage put my paintbrush on the paper, because I was terrified of "doing it wrong", or making a mistake. But Janet was so kind and loving, and very very patient with me. After just a couple lessons with her, I really felt comfortable and at peace. I really can't say enough good things about her! She's wonderful.

Patrick has helped me become a much more accomplished artist.He is a truly professional artist and a great teacher.My art lessons on the past have never been this successful, because those teaching were poor instructors.

Mari was a wonderful addition to our event. We hired her to live paint during a charity event and used the painting as an auction item. Her work was extraordinary and everyone walking by wanted to be THE ONE to get to take her work home. I look forward to working with Mari again in the future.

I took a 6 week oil painting workshop from Edd and learned a great deal, it really advanced my painting to the next level, the workshop was fun, interesting, easy to understand and went at just the right pace, I learned so many things that I never could have figured out on my own. He is an amazing artist and I am thrilled to learn his techniques. I would highly recommend him to all.

Feed your soul! Time spent with art of any kind is therapy for the heart and soul. Tenth Muse Studio creates a relaxing, encouraging and stimulating environment to explore and create from Zentangle to painting to pottery. Its owner and creator, Heidi Jo Mafi, is competent and knowledgable while also nurturing and able to coax even the most hidden talents from those who spend time with her. Surrounded by tall trees in a beautiful, natural setting, it is without a doubt, on of my favorite places to spend time.

Catherine painted a large mural for us at Flatstick Pub in Kirkland. She was a pleasure to work with and the mural was exactly what we were hoping for!

I met Greg at the Fremont Sunday Market where he had set up a booth showing his art work. It was obvious to me that he was a very versatile and skilled artist. I hired him to paint a decorative vine around my living room windows. I very much like the fact that he was willing to work with me on the design as it unfolded. I loved it so much that I had him paint an art deco type mural in my bathroom. That was followed by a mural on one wall of an attached garage that I had recently converted into a garden room. He painted a brick wall with a lion's head fountain. The concrete floors were also painted. I've been very happy with everything he has done. The cost of his work turned out to be much less expensive than other remodeling options I had been considering. It's not only beautiful, but unique!. What's not to like!

I have been taking lessons from her since 2011. I started as a complete novice, no prior experience in painting or any systematic art training. She emphasizes the importance of values, and, once a student masters it, moves onto other aspects of paintings: key, temperature, hue, composition, etc. She wouldn't be giving you a lip service, she would give you a real fundamental training, and beyond if you wish to continue. I feel extremely lucky that I met her, for that I could not afford going to full time atelier or university. If you want to build a solid foundation, I highly recommend her.

We met to discuss the job. The artist was courteous and very professional. Really cared about my (small) project. I had the full attention of the artist throughout the meeting.

My work stand out, because not only do I have a photorealistic approach, I tell a story with minimal subject matter. I look at the implications of the slightest motion or facial expressions, linking physical demeanor/ appearance to state of being.
