My name is Pat Smelkoff, and I love to introduce students to the JOY of PAINTING!
I am an artist, designer, travel teacher and also author of “Juicy Fruits and Fragrant Flowers” published by Plaid Enterprises. I design painting projects for magazines such as Paint Works, Painting and the Decorative Painter, the official publication of the Society of Decorative Painting.
I have taught at many conventions, namely Artist Expo-Houston Texas, HOOT, Heart of Ohio Tole in Columbus Ohio, New England Traditions, Marlborough, MA, as well as Decorative Painting Chapters in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.
I had the opportunity to study Russian stroke painting in Zhostovo, Russia with Master Artist Boris Grafov.
I am a Plaid Ambassador, and a certified Priscilla Hauser and Heather Redick instructor, as well as being certified in Bob Ross Florals.
