Hi and welcome to my website! I'm a Los Angeles based artist and istructor teaching my system for turning acrylic craft paint into a solid, flexible crafting material! That's right... you'll learn how to make a solid crafting material in your own hobby space that you can then use to make MOSAICS, JEWELRY & MORE! When you take my course "Turn paint into a solid, flexible crafting material you can use to make mosaics & more", you'll learn the basics of my system and be able to create your own solid color paint tiles in no time. I call my finished product PAINT TILES. You'll also learn tips, techniqes and project ideas.
If you love crafting, you'll love making paint tiles! This course is perfect for weekend hobbyists, beginners, those desiring to make mosaics, jewelry makers looking for a new material to work with, those looking to create dimensional artwork of some kind, gift givers that love to impress, or simply someone looking for something new and fun. You won't find this course taught anywhere else as it's my unique system of drying paint and how to use it. Once you learn how to make your own paint tiles, you'll be hooked! They're just so much fun to create and so easy to use in a variety of ways. The uses for these paint tiles is limited only by your imagination! Please visit www.udemy.com and check out my course; you'll be glad you did.
I'm a self-taught artist and I'm passionate about working with dried paint and palm fronds. I started creating mosaics using dried paint in late 2009 and needed a system that would dry my paint in a consistent manner so that I could replicate the same look over and over again, so I created one! I've been improving and using that system in my studio ever since! In addition to creating dimensional artwork using my dried paint tiles, I also make sculptural artwork using discarded palm fronds found in the Coachella Valley and sell them under the name of "Coachella Palm Art". I show and sell my work both online and at the occasional local art gallery. In 2011 some of my mosaic artwork was featured in a book titled "Mosaic Madness", available on Amazon.
I'm a native of Southern California, born in the Coachella Valley, and still spend as much time there as possible. As a self-taught artist, I come from a long line of creatives including musicians, artists, writers, designers, engineers and tailors. I love spending time laughing, celebrating, cooking, eating and traveling with my family and friends and our dog Mocha. As an Alopecian, I'm a self-proclaimed Ambassador of Awareness for Alopecia, which is an auto-immune disorder that causes hair loss. In my case, I have what is called Cicatricial (scarring) Alopecia, which is permanent loss, so I opted to shave it all off. It's cause is unknown and there is no cure.
On occasion, I teach local workshops and conduct home parties where crafters can make mosaics using my already created paint tiles. If you're interested, please contact me. These events can be a lot of fun!
You'll find my courses available on Udemy
(www.udemy.com) and on YouTube as "Make Mosaics & More".
