Welcome dear creative soul!

I’m Masha Eretnova – an acrylic and gouache artist and educator, member of the Professional Artist Association, and your guide in acrylic painting, gouache, and crafts! I single-handedly run a painting blog, a YouTube and an art shop.

In this blog, I share my 20+ years of drawing and painting experience as well as recommended art supplies for any budget that I spent thousands of dollars just to try and review for you 🙂

How can I help your creative journey?

I’m working mainly with acrylics but I love to explore all painting mediums – gouache being my favorite!

I love doing some hand-build or wheel pottery, epoxy, and jesmonite crafts – I made quite a few decorations for my home.

I’m learning how to draw properly as well as I’m mostly painting.

Abstract Art

Abstract art is my passion and my way of communicating and interacting with paint.

I love working with acrylic paint, mixed media, and texture.

I prefer an intuitive approach and as an introvert consider my painting sessions a sort of meditation.

If you’re a gallery or a collector, contact me directly by email at [email protected].

Some of my early pouring paintings found home in cozy villas in Bali and at my friends’ houses.

I’ve also donated a few of my paintings to raise money for a local school where I live after the roof collapsed.
