Artist Spotlight: Alexis Rivera P&V OC Instructor

What thrills you about teaching art?
I get a thrill of meeting people from all around the world and seeing their personalities show through their paintings. It's exciting to see first-time painters get so amazed at the skills they have, and I really enjoy seeing painters that return to my classes, because I get to see their style develop and watch them grow as painters! 

Who is your favorite artist?
My favorite artist is Frida Kahlo.

How do you get inspired to paint?   
I am a firm believer in investing in myself and I feel that painting is a great investment, it is therapeutic playing with colors and challenging skills to have but very rewarding.

How did you learn to paint?
I learned in College how to paint and fell in love with creating.

Do you have any upcoming art shows you want to tell us about?
I have an Art Show in the near future with a company named "Tiny Art Gallery" Follow me on Instagram for dates and times @riveraarts and @vinoandpaint
