Stella's work is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring, just like she is! Help us welcome her back to Bellevue by coming to her demo and taking her workshop.  

Stella focuses on the elements of design and planning before your painting.  She has told us that she considers the painting finished before she even puts her brush in the paint, because she's already worked out her composition, values, lines, and design.  Putting the color down is the PLAY time of the painting, not the work part.
