I have always had a creative side but Shelly awakens this whenever I visit her studio! She is encouraging, kind, and she is knowledgeable about the techniques required to put my vision on canvas. The studio is in a perfect location and inspires your soul. Enjoy! ~ Erin K.

Testimonials

I had the wonderful privilege of attending a private painting class with a group of friends, hosted by Shelley in her studio. We had a really fun evening together, and I walked away with a painting I am very proud of – and I have a challenge even drawing a stick figure!

Executive Director, Rathdrum Area Chamber of Commerce

I am no artist but she didn’t make me feel bad, instead she encouraged me to have fun with it. Once I loosened up and started having fun, I created a picture I could have never done on my own! Shelly wants to help others discover their passions and I could tell from this class.
