Meet Owner Susi
“I find fine art amazing, but being the mother of five I found it very difficult to find the time to do, so two years ago I started doing paintings that could be done in just 2 or 3 hours, fun art had instant gratification.
My biggest joy is when someone says I can’t paint, I wish I could do that and I show them how to accomplish this and that is why I started teaching fun art! I truly love what I do and when I inspire new painters especially those who come to my parties saying that they never painted before and they find out they have natural talent! Which has happened many times!”
Maria loves to share her joy by teaching her unique approach to art as well. You can find her today in South Florida teaching fun and fantastic art classes with Susi in the wildly popular studio Art n’ Around. The duo both share their love of art and have even started working on murals as a team, bringing their talent together to build an empire of fun art in classrooms, and fine art in homes and businesses.
She also dedicates her summers as the artist-in-residence at Coleman Country Day Camp in Long Island, New York. It was at this place where she built her confidence as a painter and refined her skills every summer since 98′. Some of her premiere work floats among the many walls in that huge children’s camp (some even 20-40 feet high, can you say cherry picker?), and everyone there loves Maria for her beautiful work. For this woman, art is her love, her life, and her legacy.
