Hi! Thank you for stopping by! A little about me.
I am Arica Pillsbury, Maine artist residing in Scarborough, Maine with my partner and 2 Norwegian Forest Cats! I have lived in Maine my whole life and enjoy all the seasons, lakes, oceans, mountains... It is just a beautiful place to live and create art. I have always enjoyed the arts; painting, drawing, sketching and anything crafty. I took art classes of all sorts throughout my high school and college years but consider myself pretty much self taught with many styles. I graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington with a Bachelors in Psychology but my passion has always been to create art to share. My artistic talent and touch is a family trait passed down by my grandmother and my mother. My grandmother tells me I am a descendent of Sir Joshua Reynolds - a Portrait Painter but I have not been able to confirm that heritage. My sister also tells me we are related to Marie Antoinette somewhere in the DNA heritage. Kind of cool I would say.
I spend my free time mostly painting with watercolors but also enjoy oils, acrylics, soft pastels, charcoals - pretty much any medium. Learning new mediums is also an interest. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends. Other interests include biking, hiking, walking, yoga, reading, going to the beach and spending time by the lake.
I also teach fun painting classes to those with or without art experience. These classes are typically in home paint parties, bachelorette parties and kids birthday parties. I offer both canvas painting classes and glass painting classes. Teaching gives me a feeling of satisfaction and reward because helping another individual become inspired to create is a great sense of accomplishment. I also enjoy one on one lesson's to help someone express themselves - Art as Therapy.
