What you'll do
I will conduct this mixed media (oil paint and collage) portrait painting workshop in my studio. Weather permitting, it would be held in my old post and beam barn. You will be introduced to the materials and the step by step, fool proof process. You will have freedom of your choice of collage paper, but here too there will be certain guidelines. The collage pieces are designed using a template. Once the collage pieces are glued in place, the oil paint is then applied. Because each individual has liberty to choose their own paper, and the process of cutting, tearing and pasting is unique to each individual, everyone goes home with a unique and completed 5x7 inch mixed media portrait.
I received my fine art degree at the University of NH and worked as a graphic designer for a number of years. I started showing my mixed media figure paintings in 2011 in the northeast and 2012 on west coast Florida. I received awards for some of the work, and was an artist featured to represent one of the top ranking Fine Art and Design Shows in the New York Metropolitan area. I paint and teach in my studio. My paintings are for sale in my barn gallery and in a local down town gallery in beautiful midcoast Maine.
All needed materials for this workshop will be provided.

Where you'll be
We will be in my personal art studio which is located at my house. I have an attached barn which is open to the public in the warmer months and off the barn is a studio room if the weather is inclement.
