She published a book, “What They Don’t Teach You in Art School”, a culmination of many years of experience and in-depth research. Her books will be available for sale.

 

Founded in 1981, The Wellington Art Society is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, providing both local and regional artists the platform to share their work, learn more about their craft and serve the community through their art. The Wellington Art Society is open to any resident in Palm Beach County. Membership forms will be available at the Open House if you would like to become a member.
