About


Welcome to

I feel like we’ve already met.  You love art and creativity.  You appreciate the creative souls of those who can.  You love creating an environment of inspiration in your home and enjoying every minute of it.

Welcome.  Consider this your virtual place of Creativity and how best to achieve it.  Here I will share with you all that I have learned through the years as a beginner & a professional artist and if you like, you can share your tips as well.

Red Palette Studio is a place to come to time and time again to learn and adopt a new technique, money saving tip the best & latest painting tool or product.

Here you can feel at ease and unintimidated.  Learn and soak up all that you possibly can on your creative journey.  Red Palette Studio will provide you with many artist hacks & techniques to save you time and money, for studio painters as well as plein air painters.

You may or may not have a large space for a studio, doesn’t matter.  ANYTHING can be a creative space.  I have a friend that paints in her large jacuzzi bath tub.  No Joke!  It’s the only space she can have to herself where kids and pets and husband won’t invade.

My promise to you is to share any and everything I come across that will help you in your creative journey.

Believe me, I remember how it feels to be a beginner.  I wouldn’t let myself paint for many years because I wasn’t sure how to go about it. I wanted to do it so bad but I was afraid of making a mistake.  I know it sounds silly but, it was paralyzing.

If that’s where you are, I hope I can help.  I enjoy helping others when I see them struggling as a painter.  That’s pretty much why I started this blog.

I wish I would have had someone help me out when I was starting out.  I didn’t have an art degree ( I hear they’re overrated).  I’m a product of devouring every art DVD & book I could get my hands on.  I also took the occasional workshop.

I finally decided one day to jump all in.  How liberating it was!  I haven’t stopped painting and learning since.  Any professional artist (if they’re not full of themselves) will tell you, you never stop learning.  There is always something you can do a little better, something you can learn.  Combining techniques from here and there to create your own style
