Hello, my name is Debasree Dey, a fine artist & educator from India.
I make acrylic painting tutorials inspired by nature, that are easy to understand and apply. So whether you are a beginner with no prior art experience or if u have been thinking of painting for a long and haven't got a chance to start - you can start painting along with me.
I was a beginner once and struggled to decode a painting into simpler steps. That's why I explore more effective ways of teaching and create tutorials that work for everyone.
As an educator, my work is to help people identify their inner artist, guide them to acquire painting skills & create beautiful artworks, which helps calm the mind & brings a lot of confidence & happiness as bi-product.
After teaching thousands of people in physical workshops, I'm so excited to teach you online. I hope you gain a lot of knowledge and art skills from my classes.
Look forward to connecting with you! You can see my artist life on Instagram, watch free tutorials on Youtube, and get more art inspo on Pinterest.
