July 2017 Featured Artist of the Month

Cinnamon Cooney, The Art Sherpa is our July Featured Artist of the Month

The Art Sherpa, Cinnamon Cooney, has been painting for many years and first started
using Silver Brushes in 1998 when her mother introduced her to the Ruby Satin® series.

Today, Cinnamon utilizes her unique painting style and affinity for
Silver Brushes as “The 
Art Sherpa”on her YouTube channel to introduce beginner’s acrylic painting and techniques to artists around the world. Cinnamon’s YouTube channel has really taken flight. According to her metrics, she is “teaching in 250 countries, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day” and her videos have been viewed over 14 million times.
Her love for using Silver Brushes led to
collaboration and this summer, “The Art
Sherpa” 
brush line by Silver Brush Limited
is launching with 11 sets designed by
Cinnamon specifically for the techniques
she teaches on her channel. 
“I enjoy the
process of simplifying REALLY complex topics for brand new artists,” she says. And although topics range from sun-soaked landscapes to whimsical abstracts, Cinnamon admits that she “personally get(s) really happy whenever we touch on the subject of space.”With over 170,000 followers on her channel, Cinnamon has helped thousands of artists paint pictures based on her original designs. She hopes that with her guidance, artists will use the skills she teaches to gain confidence in their abilities and create something they will love.

When asked what inspires her work, she said, “My students are the inspiration for the work I
create. The stories they share with me and the things that are important to them find a way into
all the paintings…I am always looking to take any subject or style we are covering and find the
relatable human side of it. If April the Giraffe is having a baby, I look to create a painting where
it helps people express and celebrate their excitement.”

Keep an eye out for NEW “Art Sherpa” open stock and brush sets by Silver Brush Limited at art supply retailers nation wide and world wide. Don’t see them? Contact  your local art supply reseller to order, so you can join in the fun!

June 2017 Featured Artist of the Month

Kirk Miller has been painting his entire life and has always had a propensity for the arts. As a child, he drew and painted as naturally as he breathed without ever thinking of doing it for a living. “Everyone else knew I was going to be an artist-I thought I was going to be a cowboy,” he jokes. Over the years he has not only
worked as a painter, but also as a freelance illustrator, an Art Director at an engraving firm, an instructor and demonst
rator of art
techniques, and as an author of two art instruction books for Foster Publications.

Although his job has changed, one constant for the last 25 years has
been his use of Silver Brush Ltd brushes.
“Originally, I used
Silverstone® bristles and Renaissance® sables for oils, Ruby Satin®
for acrylic and oil and I have now included Bristlon® as an additional
favorite for all my painting,” says Kirk. “With the high quality and
selection of brushes that 
Silver Brush provides, I am able to choose a specific brush

for the necessary technique. “Kirk’s dedication to his craft is evident
in every piece of work he produces. The human form or portraits are
his favorite subjects and he believes that his role is not only to
capture someone’s likeness but also their character.  Although Kirk is
a full-time, successful artist, he still enjoys teaching art classes and
workshops out of his Folsom, Ca. studio where he shows artists of all
levels how to paint in oils.    

“It’s our firm conviction that anyone, regardless of age, can learn to
paint beautiful, professional-looking paintings in almost any style-
ranging from traditional to the most contemporary-in a minimum of
time,“ he states.

When asked if he recommends Silver Brush to his students, Kirk replied, “I have been selling Silver Brushes to the thousands of students I have taught over the past 25 years. Once my students understand the benefits from using a quality brush, they continue to purchase and use Silver Brushes over all other brands.”

Kirk’s work can be found all around the world in private, government and corporate collections. In addition, he has illustrated cover art, magazines, books, posters and murals and has conducted workshops and demonstrations throughout the U.S.

February 2017 Artist of the Month

Deb Watson is a self taught artist and loves to
paint and teach. In her words: I learn as much from teaching as my students, digging into different subjects and experimenting with watercolor techniques and colors.

As a child, I loved to draw, but was discouraged by my family from pursuing art. So I spent my adult life as a nurse – working long hours and raising a family. I painted whenever I could and slowly improved. When I began painting full time, I was surprised that my work was accepted in national juried exhibitions and won awards! For years, I entered tons of shows, winning many awards. My paintings were also featured in many national magazines and earned signature membership in some of the top national art groups. After experiencing kidney cancer, I’m not entering as many shows, just focusing on my painting. (And I’m healthy so far, thank goodness.) Now I’m giving others the support I wished I had, with on line watercolor lessons.Deb continues to teach regularly in my studio and at the York Art Association. I occasionally teach workshops, although I’m a homebody and limit my travel. I also have several how to paint watercolor books available.

In Deb’s own words: “I love your brushes – the quality and the cost. I just finished teaching my Monday watercolor class (10 students) and I let students try the new brushes so they can see how nice they are. I encourage them to buy and use them. Tomorrow I have another 21 students and I’ll be taking my new brushes for them, also. The combination of holding a lot of water (and color), keeping a killer point for better control, and being reasonably priced just can’t be beat. Keep up the good work, and thank you again”

Deb’s favorite brush? Black Velvet® in all shapes and sizes

November 2016 Featured Artist of the Month

Leslie Adams painting Lynne LoftisLeslie Adams, a Signature Status member of the Portrait Society of
America, is an internationally recognized artist who specializes in figurative art and portraiture. Her patrons include distinguished
members of private society as well as the corporate, academic, religious, cultural, and civic leaders of our day. Her works grace the
walls of institutions and museums throughout the world.

Leslie was awarded the William F. Draper Grand Prize by The Portrait Society of America 

Leslie Adam’s recommendation:

As a professional artist specializing in figurative art and portraiture, whose patrons include
many distinguished members of private society as well as the corporate, academic, religious,
cultural, civic and judicial leaders of our day; it is my responsibility to provide my clients with
works of the highest quality. Therefore, the quality of the materials I use to create each painting
is critical to the process of painting itself, inherent to the success of the image, and key to the
longevity of each of my client’s investments.
For these reasons, my choice for brushes is imperative and unwavering. Since I began painting
professionally, I have found the superb quality of the Renaissance Series by Silver Brush toLeslie Adams be
unsurpassed. Each brush is meticulously crafted with the highest
quality materials available. Whether applying broad glazes or focusing
on precise details, each brush in the Renaissance line, with its unique
characteristics, allow me to produce my desired results. Consequently, the Rounds and the Brights in the series are never far from reach and
are as essential to me as the popular, long handled Cat’s Tongue
brushes that I love.
I have used the Renaissance Series by Silver Brush the past two
decades of my career and I highly recommend them to all of my colleagues.
