Featured Artist: Lisa Clough
I have been a professional artist for 21 years, selling my own work while teaching art classes. In 2012, I started creating painting and drawing videos and tutorials on youtube in multiple mediums. These videos allow me to teach other artists from around the world in both technical skill and in art business and social media all while creating the work I love! I am pretty sure I have the best job ever! I primarily work in colored pencil, acrylics, oil paint, graphite, and Inktense. In addition to my youtube art lessons, I am the co-host of the Colored Pencil Podcast and a contributor to the Colored Pencil Magazine.
