I wanted to learn more about making Art and have the feedback that is necessary to keep your Art moving forward. I wanted the accountability and community … Now I see myself as an artist. I’m less afraid and more curious/adventurous. I make art almost every day. … Kellie taught me how to finish a painting. She taught me how to listen to my inner voice and let it guide me to the next best thing to do. This taught me to allow my paintings to unfold one step at a time … I see it less as a luxury now and more as a necessary part of my life. I have more value for myself and what I do.
