Paint Pour Academy

My name is Erika Tenney, and I am an artist at Desert Hippie Arts and an instructor at Paint Pour Academy. My grandmother was a professional oil painting artist, and she gave me a love for art. She gave my sister and me drawing classes during our time as children. As much as I loved watching her and her work, I quickly found that drawing and structured painting were not for me. When my kids were little, I started scrapbooking, and I found myself falling in love with mixed-media art. In 2017, I discovered acrylic pouring, and I loved how unpredictable this technique was and how enjoyable it was to experiment with the paint. I was hooked! I sell my art at www.DesertHippieArts.com and I teach fluid art at www.PaintPourAcademy.com.
