"What a great, immersive experience, to learn something- really learn something I can use- in such a wonderful space... "
"Thank you! I loved everything about this class- the work, your generous teaching and humor, the magnificent studio space, and the great food! Please let me know as soon as you schedule another class!"
"I just finished an entire 10 by 12 foot cloud ceiling in a little over one day all by myself. It came out awesome and I have you to thank for teaching me how to paint clouds so easily. I amazed myself and my client."
"This is what I want to do and you have totally encouraged me to do it. I didn't want to leave your studio, I had to much fun..."
"Of course I wear a tiara while I am painting. Doesn't everyone?"
"Thank you so much for taking the time to teach us. I haven't been so inspired in so long! Looking forward to more classes. "
