About the owner - Lacey French
Since the beginning of my life I have always stated I wanted to be an artist. II went to art college at Art Institute of York, PA where I obtained an associates degree in graphic design. Graduating at 19 in Dec 2008 and being given the opportunity to freelance from home has been a wonderful opportunity to be home with my 2 daughters. When my second daughter was on the way I was looking to contribute more financially in order to continue being a stay-at-home Mom. I seen a growth in venue and home paint parties and thought this is exactly what I want to do, teach what I love.
The question I get the most is where did I learn to paint? My eyes were opened when I was a preteen and asked for an oil painting set for my birthday. I would sit in my backyard and paint ( same spot in the picture on this page is taken). My love has not stopped since then, teaching myself different techniques and mediums. It's the one activity I can get caught in and express myself. I LOVE seeing people who never picked up a paint brush fall in love with painting. I had an older couple do a “couples" paint night and a later her husband pasted away. She said it was one of the last things they created together and she cherished it. I have helped with fundraisers to adopt a child and private paint nights honoring family members they have loss. I find teaching to paint to be such an amazing journey these 5 years.
Not only does this provide me to be able to spend time with my kids, husband and set my schedule but when I am working a lot of time you will see I drag (lol) my mom along to help--- extra mother-daughter bonding time lol. She has become a staple in making this business successful, in both helping me with business decisions, coming up with painting ideas, and being the supply girl during paint parties. I know I wouldn't be able to hold all this together without her. Thank you for supporting this business and my dreams!
