Meike Aton, owner and artist of Meike Aton Art Studio & Gallery, believes you don't need to paint perfectly like a photograph; instead, you should paint how you feel. After a teaching career and raising her children, the German artist returned to her artistic roots by taking workshops with artists she admired to help hone her skills. Today, Aton holds workshops of her own, teaching students how to paint from the heart using a few unique methods—including painting with texture. This technique has become synonymous with Aton’s work, along with vibrant colors and bold florals, and now you can learn how she does it while creating a masterpiece of your own.
