I’ve been mentoring privately for a few years now, which I enjoy immensely. I like to think of myself as a versatile artist, able to work successfully in a number of mediums and styles. I also pride myself in being able to “read” my students and to see what how their hearts direct them, something they are often not able to see themselves. This allows me to give them the proper tools so they can build their own wings and take flight. One of my students just wrote this testimonial that I am very proud to post here.
As Monica mentioned, I had the opportunity to work with Monica on a one to one basis. It was one of the best things, artistically, that I have done for myself. We all know of her talent and experience, but her ability to help move your creativity forward is truly amazing.
This being said, I have been to many workshops with excellent artists, including Monica, and they were educational and inspirational to say the least. But, for me, the timing of the private lessons is what made the difference. Any artist, who seriously wants to lose fear and push ahead in their work, would be well served to place themselves in Monica’s care. You will thank me for the suggestion!” – Julie Bagshaw, New Hope, Pennyslvania
I have students who live here on the island and come to me on a regularly scheduled basis as well as students who travel and spend a week or two studying with me. If you would like to learn more, please visit workshop.monicalinville.com or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The image I’ve posted here is one that Julie did with me. Her goal was to work more abstractly while still maintaining a semblance of the literal image. I think she succeeded, eh?
