Kellie helped me to unearth things that I hadn’t previously identified about what holds me back, give me joy and propel me forward. This program didn’t just help my art, it was transformational. Through Kellie’s mentor-ship, I moved toward defining my authentic artistic voice, found processes that worked for me and learned the steps to pull a painting together. I now find great joy in painting and experimenting. I am not concerned with the finished product. I no longer have a fear of ruining a painting.
