MEET LARISSA WEST
CONNECT WITH LARISSA
As a self-taught artist who found art late in life, Let's Face It has been an invaluable resource for me. I am deeply honored to be here teaching this year! Some of my fondest memories growing up were days spent creating and painting with my Mom. Neither of us had any formal training. It was all about the joy of creation. When she died, my passion for creating died too. In 2016, I made a personal vow to embrace the parts of me that had been neglected or put on hold. So, I began with a challenge to draw or paint something every day for thirty days and I fell in love all over again. I have been creating every day since then. I love all the aspects of the creative process and I enjoy working intuitively. I love experimenting with different mediums. I currently work with watercolors, acrylics and pastels, and oils but I love trying new mediums and techniques. I am so excited to be part of YOUR art journey!
Art expresses, art connects, art inspires, and art heals.
