About the Event
Tricia's books are currently available for purchase in our Gallery and her art will be on display and for sale during the Summer Show. Join us to meet the author in person, ask questions, and learn from her experience.
After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Studio Art, I displayed and sold my work at shows in California which working as a teacher. I have taught painting classes at the Truckee Meadow Community College (TMCC) for 5-years now and I am a volunteer docent with the Nevada Museum of Art. I also authored “The Artist Map to Success” in 2019 showing artists how to make money doing what they love. My art has been displayed and sold through several galleries for the past 10-years.
I have created a series of “Water Media and Mixed Media” painting videos. There are 12 lessons through which I teach all 3 levels of painting: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. I often recommend starting at the beginner level to gain that solid foundation so to develop each new level of expertise. These lessons can be purchased at www.triciastudio.thinkific.com.
I have changed my direction to an abstract style. I find this new direction exhilarating where I can express my innermost emotions. I hope to reach each viewer through a deep understanding of the subconscious directions our minds take us.
~ I believe the artist who does the work and puts in the time will gain a great sense of fulfillment and an opportunity to earn income as an artist.
