My name is Tish Reed. I live and paint full-time in Carmel, Indiana. I graduated with a BFA from Indiana University in 2021, so I spent many years learning 'how to paint' from incredible artists and had developed a solid oil painting technique based in realism. However things changed for me after I had a mental health crisis when my last child was born in 2014. It was at that time that I returned to painting simply for healing. I "let go" of the perfection and rules I had been taught in art school and allowed myself to just have fun, explore, pray and paint with acrylics for the first time. I received so much healing to my spirit and soon began teaching those methods to others so they could experience healing and joy through art ministry at churches throughout central Indiana. The positive reactions to my artwork inspired me to step out in faith and I now have a thriving art business and a member of HCAA. My intuitive techniques have brought joy back to my painting and help me create completely unique works of art that my patrons love. During this workshop I want to show you how to dance while you paint, break the rules, build layers and create works of art that are uniquely yours!
