“Love them tell them”
We recently sat down with Jenny Muncaster to hear where her passion for art came from, what was learning in school like, how she started her career, and tips for students looking to start a professional career in art.
When did your love of art start?
What inspired you to pick up a brush and start painting?
Did you always want to be an artist?
When you were at college, did you do any commissions on the side?
What would be your advice for new artists just starting up?
How did you start your professional career?
How did you find your niche?
I have discovered so many new paints and mediums in my work as an artist, presenter, and teacher. It is never a bad thing to step out of your comfort zone and try something different. I always encourage an oil painter reluctant to try acrylics to have a go and vice versa, I can honestly say I have never had a disappointed student not try something new if it is taught in the right way!"
Why do you want to share your techniques?
Why do you think everyone has an artist in them?
One of my favourite quotes
