"This was such a fun class. She walked us through each step and we all walked away with works of art to be proud of. She has a great system and it was a ton of fun.!"

"My sisters and I took a class with Lovejoy a year ago and it is still a memory we all share with fondness. I have hung my painting up at work and it always brings a smile to my face. We aren't professional painters, and all of our paintings were accurate depictions of our pets' look and personalities. "

Lovejoy has taught first-time & beginner painters exclusively for the last 15 years, her "Paint Your Pet" class was the first in San Diego in 2013, and with the endorsement of the San Diego Humane Society & other local non-profit rescue groups the class became an instant hit! Her local students have helped the class grow by coming back and bringing friends. She has helped self proclaimed un-creative people find a joy in painting and see the world from a new perspective. It is from her students enthusiasm and support that Lovejoy pushed to develop this as an online course.
Lovejoy graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2003. Her goal when leaving Savannah was to earn a living as an artist and to be creative and active every day. She then spent the next seven years developing her style with the palette knife and bold use of color in Sedona, AZ. “I usually don't know what my final art piece will look like when I start, only the subject and basic composition. Finding most of my creative flow within the wildlife genre, I developed a way to sculpt with paint, layer by layer. Creating a beautiful play of lights and shadows, full of unexpected colors side by side. It’s a dance, a push and pull until the form becomes whole. I find so much peace when I’m creating,” - Lovejoy.

Lovejoy currently resides in San Diego, CA and operates a studio/gallery in historic Liberty Station where she teaches painting and sells original works of art.
