Marlene Fudge

It is so hard to believe that I have been decorative painting for over 25 years! I have had the pleasure of having my designs published in numerous magazines and e-zines as well as teaching both locally and at conventions. I am very proud to be a DecoArt Helping Artist, a Dynasty Brand Specialist and a Viking Woodcrafts Exclusive Designer. My painting has given me so many wonderful opportunities and I have met the greatest friends along the way.

Early in June, I was asked to teach a painting class for an afternoon activity at the Chemical Coaters Association International conference in Whitefish, Montana. I had a full class of 25 students who have never painted before! It was wonderful to introduce them to the wonderful world of art. Everyone had a great time and did a fabulous job on their paintings! The class was such a hit that I was asked to do another class at the conference next year in Colorado. DecoArt generously donated the paints for our class.

You can find the e-packet for my design that I taught in Montana as well as many others at The Decorative Painting Store and also Cupboard Distributing.
