I don't consider myself an artist...I just LOVE to paint!
My name is Leanne Labiuk. When I was pregnant with my first child 21 years ago, I needed something to occupy my creative mind. I began watching videos and bought a few painting supplies, and I can now say that I am self-taught. I became a One Stroke Certified Instructor from Donna Dewberry herself, and continue to share my talents with others.
I had a great experience instructing in a lovely local Bed & Breakfast a few years ago doing over 100 events/Paint Parties. Since then, I have been instructing Paint Parties independently via word of mouth and Facebook promotion as well as working full time as an Elementary School Secretary. Both are very rewarding and satisfying to say the least.
With the support of my 3 awesome kids, my Mom and my wonderful boyfriend Steve and his 2 girls, I have built a creative, fun, and enjoyable side business. I now have almost 200 events under my belt, and love sharing the experience of free-hand painting with so many lovely people.
