Three years ago I had the privilege and good fortune to attend my first class with Lila Lewis Irving.
My favourite memory is watching Lila pour paints, manipulating shapes and colours using her “tools” and voila, a few minutes later a beautiful painting.
Lila taught me many things, using big brushes, tools, boldness, importance of design but most of all to follow my intuition. I was going through a creative block, frustrated and depressed I emailed Lila and her words of wisdom were: keep painting through the blocks and if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen
Since then I have continued to employ her methods and am now finally following my bliss.
