For all you Tole Painters out there like me, The Creative Painting Convention in Las Vegas, has been the beginning and backbone to entering the Tole and Decorative painting world. At least it was for me. I attended the very first one and went religiously for the first 12 years.
Over the Road Trucking (yes) and jobs in the creative industries such as Art Director for Walnut Hollow and Founding Editor in Chief of Bead Unique Magazine and Photographer took me away from the joy of painting for another 12 years. Now I am back and it feels so good!
I began as a entry level Tole and Decorative painter with incredible instructors such as Priscilla Hauser, and the very first show I was introduced to Rosemary Reynolds from DecoArt. She convinced me right there, that I should be a DecoArt Helping Artist. I really had no clue, but she had faith in me and my enthusiasm and signed me up.
Fast forward to today. In one month and 2 weeks, I will be back to teaching at The Creative Painting Convention in Las Vegas! I am beyond excited and cant wait to get there!
I am busy prepping and painting surfaces for my "Gone Fishing" banner that I will be teaching on Tuesday Feb 27th, from 8am to Noon!
