ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Serena Martin has loved art since she was a little girl. She first discovered her passion at a young age when her grandfather introduced her to the world of Chinese calligraphy. From there, it opened the doors to endless possibilities of artistic expression.
After getting her Business degree at Wake Forest University and spending several formative years working in the fashion industry, she could wait no longer to pursue her dreams. In 2014, she closed the corporate doors behind her and picked up her paint brushes again.
Serena's love of animals drew her to paint pet portraits. She likes to add whimsy and sense of humor into her art. She also draws inspiration from her time in fashion, always amazed by the creativity and intellectual power of the fashion world. She is inspired daily by the beautiful people and surroundings in Washington D.C., where art and order live and interact harmoniously.
