Spotlight:  Cynthia Estes

“I have been painting since the 1980′s and teaching since 2006. I use and teach with DecoArt Traditions paint and the DecoArt Media line and teach the original Traditions Educational Program from Beginner to Advanced. I also am branching out into teaching and designing altered art with Alcohol Inks, Distress Inks and Mixed Media and making spa products with essential oils. I have taught at the Houston Expo, will teach at the World of Color Expo in July and currently co-direct a retreat every September for the past 10 years called Painting With Friends Weekend. Along with all of that I do Intricate Face Painting at shows, state fairs and events, both private and public, with my friend and painting partner Donna Harcourt. I am retired from the Federal Aviation Administration after a 29 year career. I have 4 grown children and 6 grandchildren! I have recently repainted an old Carousel Horse featuring DecoArt’s Americana Decor Maxx Gloss product. The before-and-after pictures show what a huge difference this paint made!”
