Lesson Details

Painting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
With 12+ years of experience, I have a long history of practicing visual art. Drawing and painting are some of my favorite practices, and I love helping others take what they see and express that through their own hands. Together we'll explore what it means to perceive and express through creative visual means!

Hello! I'm Mesmi, owner of VATOCA Studios, a boutique multimedia house that provides music/audio services, visual work and individual artist consultation. Specialties include all types of writing (songwriting, branding, etc.), vocal production and independent music strategy.

As a professional musician, artist and voice over actress, I have won awards, performed my original music at venues & festivals and booked national TV commercials. I have 12+ years background in classical piano, 6+ years as a gigging musician in Los Angeles and 4+ years in recording & production. I also have years of practice in a number of visual mediums, from oil painting to Adobe Photoshop to the newest mobile apps.

With ample experience in both the creative and business sides of being an artist, one of my great joys is equipping others using all that I have learned, and I believe in taking a specialized individual approach for each person and project.

Whether you need help with crafting your work, navigating social media or learning an instrument, I'm here to help you figure out the best of what will benefit you.

I love all the ways there are to communicate -- through language, sound and visuals -- and am so blessed to share the gift of these arts with others!
