I think every artist is inspired by others. I have 4 artists I have been inspired by
Sarah Cray - got me back into painting and taught me to love watercolor
The mint gardener - her books and teaching style are so inspiring.
Heather Renaux - she is a local artist that does circus art. Her unique style inspires me! She also has so much kindness and is so personable.
Van Gogh - I love his art. The thick lines and stary night is just amazing
Degas - I love his dancers and pastels. Impressionism is my favorite type of painting era.
