Illustration, Painting, and Pottery Instructor
Candace joined the art studio for her senior externship at Virginia Wesleyan University where she studied Fine Art and Biology. She is now finishing her Master’s studies in Illustration. Candace is in pursuit of a career in freelance illustration, art licensing, and fine art. Drawing and painting in all forms are just some of her passions for art. She also has a strong need to get her hands muddy with clay when possible, and enjoys anything from clay sculpture to throwing on the wheel. Currently she loves drawing on her iPad, painting with gouache, and illustrative portraits. Outside of the studio Candace has been involved in the local sports and coached a few lacrosse teams. Her experience as a team player and coach help give her the ability to structure lessons with repetition and patience. Candace is great with kids and loves to work with adults or anyone who shares her passion for art. It's important to her to help everyone understand the big picture and see the beauty in the world around them through an artistic lense.
