"Since as long as I can remember, art has always held a magical quality. When I was six years old, I watched my mom's hand draw a cat. One minute the paper was empty, the next, a cat was sitting comfortably on the page. I still feel that incredible sense of wonder, and it is this feeling I want to recreate whenever I draw or paint, or both," Dominique Flamm.

"By necessity, I learned to sew my own cloths, refinish and upholster furniture. Those sparked an interest in pottery, Italic writing, knitting and basket weaving. I then started wood carving with my father. But after 30 plus years as a surgical nurse in Portland, Oregon, I found a new passion, painting, and a new home in Arizona. I took classes in pencil drawing, pastels, pen & ink, watercolor, acrylic and oil. Oils are now my main interest but I continue to learn from art coaches." - Brigitte Scanlon
