Hi, I'm LYN BELISLE (say "buh-LYLE"), artist, teacher, author, and perpetual work-in-progress. My hometown is beautiful multi-cultural San Antonio, Texas, where I practice art, design instructional eBooks, run a popular Etsy shop called Earthshards, and teach workshops.
I've taught art in public school, at Trinity University, at my Studio, and in workshops from Provincetown to Santa Fe to Whidbey Island. My workshops are all-level and multi-media, and are designed to help you become more confident and more successful in your art practice.
I rejoice in the power of art as a 'secret handshake' of recognition and belonging. Art humanizes and joins us, helping us communicate in a universal non-verbal language across time and space.
Human faces, ancient or contemporary, fascinate me as summaries of life stories in the moment. Clay, paper, beeswax, and fiber are my instinctive, beloved media but mark-making through abstract painting challenges me to develop my own language of expression and translation.
If these thoughts resonate with you, come work with me! This is your place of creative belonging! ~ Lyn
