Dear painting friends, my name is Marika Moretti, I am 36 years old and I live in Bologna, Italy.
I started painting more than 10 years ago and I never stopped since then!
Probably like many others, I began as a student, then a teacher, and now also a designer... but in the end
I always consider myself as a student. In my opinion you never stop learning, either from other teachers or from yourself...or better...from your attempts (I don't like to call them mistakes :-))
Since I began painting, I have been taking many classes with different teachers, who came to Italy to teach us their techniques: Renee Mullins, Maxine Thomas, Jamie Mills-Price, Holly Hanley, Kim Hogue, July Santiago, Laurie Speltz. Every class allows me to become a better painter as well as designer because I can learn new techniques to put in my designs, or I can open my mind to new ideas to create new techniques.
I really enjoy teaching, what I like the most is hearing someone saying…. “I can’t do this” and then look at this person after the class, with the project done smiling at me. I usually say “you could do this, look at your job… you did it!”
I also had the privilege to be published in painting magazines like Online Painting Magazine and Pixelated Palette and I hope to add some more to the list!
I love travelling, every chance I have I pack some things and I leave for a trip and every time I get back my head is full of inspiration for a new design! I hope I will start travel teaching someday, so I will be able to do the two things I love the most at the same time!!!
Always paint with happiness, practice a lot, try to learn as much as you can from others, but remember... you are the best teacher of yourself!
