I joined this program because my confidence and motivation to create were waning. I also wanted to explore creating my own style and my own voice rather than mimicking other artists.

The program has been great. I love the feedback I get from Kellie and the other students. I am exploring more areas of creativity than I ever have. I am in the studio almost everyday. The feedback I am getting from friends and family has also been very positive. I now have some really great pieces that I love, a plan to actually do a show, and I’m loving the process and seeing the results in my paintings.

I definitely feel more confident. I am no longer hesitant to call myself an “artist”. I’m so proud of myself for saying yes to myself and to this program.
