Serena is a dedicated artist and instructor and would rather be in her studio than anywhere else. She has a part time counseling practice in Portland, Oregon, specializing in creativity issues. The rest of the time she makes art, teaches art, spends time with friends and family, and reads like a fiend.
Serena’s business, The Art of Your Life, offers original art, creativity and art workshops, groups and individual art coaching. She exhibits and sells her work locally and online. She teaches at national art retreats, at her studio, around the Pacific Northwest, and in Taos, New Mexico. You may have seen Serena’s articles have appeared in Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine, Studios magazine, and Somerset Apprentice. Serena’s book, Wabi-Sabi Art Workshop: Mixed Media Techniques for Embracing Imperfection and Celebrating Happy Accidents, was published in 2013 by North Light. Her new North Light book, Painting with Cold Wax will be released in August, 2015.
