I will be demonstrating at the Denver Art Museum Fashion Designer studio in conjunction with the YSL Retrospective. The dates are May 26th, 27th, June 2nd, 3rd, June 9th, and 10th. My subject matter will be “Art inspiring fashion”. Check out the Mona Lisa Painting I did on a jacket. The Mona Lisa is a very difficult painting to recreate but it’s also a great learning experience. I’m still working out the details of what the demonstrations will be…
