Koala-ty Slogan

Color and form fascinate and intrigue me, that is why I love painting designs with a lot of bends, flips and ruffles. Which usually means I design and paint a lot of florals, but I also love autumn leaves and butterflies. I have spent years developing my style to present realistic designs painted in the simpliest yet most beautiful way possible. Painting with oils and DecoArt So Soft fabric paints are among my favorite mediums. Because I love creating dimension from a simple line drawing I also love pen and ink. I would love to share my passion with you in a class setting, my travel teaching rates are calculated based on the size of the group. Contact me at my e-mail address for more information.
