A little bit about me, Colleen, that's me, I am Classy, Sassy and a little bit Smart Assy. I am a self taught artist who is passionate about my art. My journey in the art world started when I was a child. I began painting the rocks from my backyard and bottle caps from the local gas station vending machines. OOOH, did I just date myself? I have been painting decorative art for over 30 years, I'll paint anything and everything that will sit still and even some who can't. Fourteen years ago I decided to share my passion with anyone who would put a paintbrush in their hand and give it a try. Teaching painting is such fun and so rewarding. I am a Master Instuctor for One Stroke painting, I am also certified Instructor for Grumbacher Arts. Yaymaker is a great match me, I truly believe that everyone is an artist, Yaymaker brings out the creativitiy in all of us, and who knew that while having fun and Drinking Creatively, you can create a masterpiece of your own. Thanks for dropping in and getting to know me.
