  • When did you start taking art classes at The Art Studio NY, and why did you begin to take classes (what was going on in your life at the time)?
    I began taking classes at The Art Studio NY over a year ago.  At the time, I was working as a professional medical illustrator. My desire has always been to paint and to do something less "technical" than I was used to. Coming in every week from Connecticut has allowed me to concentrate on my painting and put everything else aside. 

  • What class/es did you take, and what classes are you currently taking?
    I have been taking oil painting with Rebecca and several times with Jake. I have just completed my last session with Rebecca.

    What makes your experience at The Art Studio NY unique and memorable? 
    It is a unique experience for me because it allows me to break away from my fear of making something perfect without flaws and my fear of painting. It is a very freeing feeling and an important tool for me.

    What is something you have achieved because of your art classes that you never thought you could?
    I'm painting! I work on paintings in the city at The Art Studio NY and I work on paintings at home. I love painting

  •     What are you most proud of when it comes to your artistic journey? 
        I actually enjoy the fact that I get lost in my work. I don't have a deadline that forces me to complete something at a specific time....I just let it go!

  • What fears have you overcome, on and off the canvas, since starting to paint?
    Avoiding the "blocks" that used to occur when I would start a painting and not know where to go next. It has given me perspective and the ability to stand back and then continue....

    How have your art classes allowed you to relax and relieve stress? 
    I come into the studio, I forget everything....stress extinguished!!!

    How have your art classes changed your life, either in your art or your everyday life?
    The classes have started me in a new direction with my art, a direction full of new surprises and a stronger self identity.

    What advice would you tell a total beginner who feels afraid of taking an art class or they feel they "have no talent"?
    Try it. The most that can happen is that you don't like it....but I know that you will!
