Spotlight:  Nilda Rosa Rodriguez, CDA

Nilda has been painting since 1988. Ever since she can remember, she has enjoyed drawing faces and coloring books. A set of new crayons or an art set was her favorite gift.

She painted solely in acrylics for several years until she had the courage to try oils on her own. Nilda passed her certified decorative artist certification in the still life category at the Society of Decorative Painter’s Tampa convention in 2005. In 2007 she started designing in colored pencils. She has traveled across the United States and England to teach seminars in oils, acrylics, and colored pencils, as well as being a frequent contributor to The Decorative Painter, the official magazine of the Society of Decorative Painters.

She owns two online painting schools with teachers from around the world, the Acrylic Painting Club and the Colored Pencils Club, and an online painting magazine called Painting e-Magazine,which you can visit at PaintingEMagazine.com or OnlinePaintingMagazine.com

At first her biggest passion was painting people and faces. She now enjoys painting birds, flowers, fruits, and still life. In her store, Tolebrush.com, she sells online classes in colored pencils, oils, and acrylics as well as pattern packets or tutorials from different teachers in all three of these mediums.
