Welcome to Nature’s Brush Studio!


August update,  well here we are, still locked down, still painting online.  I taught a small class in July as a testing the waters situation.  It was so great to get back to it.  Check out the classes page to see a pic

I have started recording my reddit broadcasts, click on the YouTube link at the top of the page and check out some full length demos.

I also started an etsy store, www.etsy.com/naturesbrushstudio.  Check out the works I have, with more planning to be added!

During this time of the Covid-19 Pandemic, lots of things have changed.  My whole roster of classes has been cancelled or pushed back and no formal classes have been done since early March and right now, there really isnt a firm end in site.  Please stay home, stay safe and wash your hands!  Do everything the CDC and your local governments deem the best practices at “flattening the curve” so we can weather this pandemic, without maxing out our hospital’s capabilities.

In the mean time!

I have been actively painting online!  I have completed lots and lots of online live demos and mini classes.  I am creating a new page on here especially for all the paintings i have done so far.  If you have an interest in buying one, please let me know!  I am also planning on giveaways and other promotions to keep my business alive as best I can.  If you want to paint along, that would be great!  Let me know if you have any questions, requests or comments!  imtedsim@gmail.com.

July 2019!

I was at Comic-Con San Diego. I worked with Nic Hankins and the Bob Ross inc crew, and put on 6 classes over 3 days in beautiful San Diego (stay classy).
