MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

After the summer break, our next regular monthly meeting will be September 17, 2019 at the Richardson Public Library basement meeting room. The September Demo Artist will be Sheliah Lonian. Sheliah will demonstrate her technique in Colored Pencil. The Meetings begins at 6:30 p.m.

Sheliah says "I have drawn as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are drawing on a chalk board and nothing was better then getting a big new box of Crayola Crayons.

I have had a life-long passion of learning and have taken numerous classes in art in several mediums and styles while trying to create my own individual style.

After workin many years primarily in medical management, I was able to retire to begin the career my heart longed for.

I work in colored pencil, acrylic, graphite and watercolor. I focus primarily on animals while sometimes working with flowers and still life.

I have been blessed and very honored to have won numerous awards in my career as an artist.

I currently have artwork displayed at the Wylie Fine Art Gallery in Wylie, Texas."
