Erica will be demonstrating how she paints in her nouveau inspired lines near the end of a painting.

She will talk a little about the Art Nouveau movement and why it is a part of her paintings. She will share some of her artistic endeavours in the form of ink drawings and sketches with art nouveau over the last 20 years, plus how it has become an integral part of her painting.

She will try to share her love of the flowing lines and grace of this great artistic movement with all who attend and we will all do a sketch incorporating some lines on graph or sketch paper.
