My doll making was slowing down I had made enough extra dolls to keep the shops happy and I was ready to paint again! My own style is Naive or Primitive, folk art a style that I just love but I wanted to do something different. It was Jess from Little Dirt Lane who brought Suzi Blu to my attention, she was a student at Suzi Blu's Les Petit Acadamy and was having so much fun learning something new. And seeing what Jess was painting there was something about it that it interested me so I signed up to one of the courses.. 'Angels'!
I'm onto my third course now and having a ball, never thought that mermaids would be swimming through my sketch books and canvases!
Suzi's class is wonderful for beginners who want to create art guiding you gently along but also pushing you to reach your potential! For those people that can paint you can never stop learning.
Suzi is very generous with her knowledge on art, methods and mediums more than what I can say from most teachers at art school! Another cool thing about the Academy is meeting hundreds of people from all around the world, blew me away when I first arrived there and the class rooms started to fill up with people from Sweden, Austria, France, Japan, Australia, it was amazing!
One thing though Suzi can't say 'quinacridone' I didn't even know what it was and would you believe I had a pot of it on my shelf! But you know I can't say it properly either!
