Reisa Peters, Featured Artist for August

Many of you have already had the pleasure of viewing Reisa Peter’s work at ARTifacts Emporium.  What you may NOT already have seen are her newer pieces. 

Reisa Peters works in pastel and oil. She has worked in pastel for the past 12 years and has just started learning to oil paint the past year. In pastel attended a workshop by Paula Ford, from Chattanooga, ("the tree lady"), and is practicing what she has learned from her. Now Reisa has been painting with a palette knife in oil paintings and has several examples of that on display in her booth.
