Read my Curriculum Vitae or Summary Resume
"April, thank you so much for sharing all of your valuable information with us! I’ve enjoyed taking the two classes from you."
"I have always loved your work (which is why we have 3 pieces hanging in our wine lounge.) Looks like things are going really well and I am so happy for you. Continued success."
"My work has been traditionally transparent watercolor or oil, but seldom mixed media. After your workshop and a painting trip to Cuba, I was inspired (by your workshop) to break out and work in acrylic & watercolor to capture some impressions of Habana.
Your technique worked perfectly in trying to capture the crumbling effects of time and nature on the architecture, and the stenciled effects used as a metaphor to express the "fenced-in" lack of freedom of the individual. So, thank you for that experience. As a life long art educator, I know it's nice to know how far your influence can extend."
"Thank you both for your great generosity of knowledge and kindness and encouragement ...and preparation and information ...Still catching my breath from the great session ...”
