Patti Barras

Patti Barras-I am probably the only artist who can say...my first art teacher, who gave me private lessons, was named Sister Mary Baptist of Carmel (O'Carm). Yes, for eight years this beloved Nun (and what an artist) taught me basic technical skills in pencil, charcoal, pastels and oil painting. She taught me to appreciate the beauty in nature and all that surrounds me. She said, "An artist is truly blessed for she (or he), if looking intently, is able to see the Master Creator and the marvels of our universe." Thank you Sister!

Sheila Bergeaux

Sheila Bergeaux started painting in the 70's and joined local clubs and painted in classes with the best teachers in the area. She also has taken from some nationally known artists in workshops. About 8 years ago she started to work in watercolor and fell in love with the medium. Watercolor has to have more planning before you start to paint but it is really fun to work with. She paints a lot of flowers because she has worked in several flower shops and teachers are always saying paint what you know and she has studied flowers petal by petal.
