About the Instructor: Beki Borman is a Milwaukee based artist with a BFA in painting from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. Since graduating, Beki has exhibited both locally and nationally. She currently works primarily with a palette knife; her “Chromascapes” focus on color and relationships within the subject of landscape. Some of Beki’s influences include Vincent Van Gogh, Wolf Kahn, and Wayne Thiebaud. She currently works out of her studio in the Waukesha Springs Gallery/Studios.

“Being an artist takes WORK. But it is never too late to start. I believe one should start in a way that will be less intimidating. Don’t spend thousands on supplies and then be afraid to “waste them” on “bad paintings”. The hardest part of making art is not to learn the tools or techniques. The hardest part is breaking old habits and being fearless in trying new approaches.”-Beki Borman
