It was a great class but not what I expected in a basics technique class. It was more like what I expect the nature class to be.

ARTISTS
Isabelle Fleay
Isabelle is 22 years old and has lived in Perth since 2020, originally from the coastal town of Geraldton! She has always had a great passion for art where she was first inspired to create as young as 6 years old! Over the years she began to paint the Geraldton lighthouse with acrylics and got private lessons on the side to increase her skills! She enjoyed art during school where some of her works got selected to be displayed in galleries! After high school as she moved to Perth she began to develop her artistic talents and dive into watercolours and that was her happy place! Painting outlined portraits, animals like turtles, whales, elephants and more, flowers and bumble bees and all sorts - she loved the flow and tranquility that comes from watercolour painting. She is also experienced in texture art where she has many works of coastal paintings on her Instagram account @loveizzy.designs!

If she's not painting a new textured landscape or a watercolour piece, she's reading her beloved fantasy books or hanging out with friends! (Besides working her 9-5 that is!) She also loves teaching where she currently working with kids and would love for people of all ages to come along to her first few lessons over the next couple of months to show your support!

Isabelle Fleay is available for private bookings

Available Sundays 9 am onwards.

Watercolour or textured landscape lessons available. Can also do face painting for kids :)

These two little mice bring me pure joy everytime I look at them. It takes me back to my childhood of enchanted movies of woodland animals, imagination and play. I had to paint them, the whole process was pure joy, hence the title. Referance photo is by Belinda Fewings and can be found on Unsplash.

Title or Location: Trinity River Audubon Center
This painting was inspired on one of the many beautiful trails at the Trinity River Audubon Center. I recently joined a Dallas Plein Air painting group and this was my first outing. Mesmerized by the morning sun. Inundated by the sounds of nature. It was a blissful experience. It had been so long since I had been with nature and admittedly caught the plain air bug. There was a unifying experience as nature never stopped all around me and neither did I!

Title or Location: Scottsdale Arizona
I work in sketchbooks 98 of the time with my favorite pens. I prefer to draw live rather than from photos, so at night I find my characters on TV. Watercolor or other mixed media may find its way into the drawing, depending on which sketchbook I used. This was drawn in a Strathmore 500 series mixed media softcover book. The paper takes mixed media extremely well.

Title or Location: Fort Bend County Texas. This fence post stands next to a gate on a friends ranch, just off of Hwy 59 S.
On February 3rd of this year (2024), I was at my music duet partners ranch near Beasley and Rosenberg Texas, just off of Hwy 59 S. We often times go out to the country to rehearse our music when the weather is nice. I?ve driven through the gate and past this post many times before but on this particular day, the sun was shining just so perfectly and the old, rusty, broken chain really captured my attention. I jumped out of the truck and snapped a few photos, knowing I would eventually paint this
