Local Featured Seller: Rushingwater Studios

My Name is Christine MacLellan and my shop and studio name is Rushingwater Studios.
I am located in Cary NC.
I paint in oils, acrylic, pastel, watercolor and digitally. I like to paint and draw everything.
My favorite places around the Triangle: I like being outdoors and usually spend sometime each day at local parks. Bond park is in my backyard so you will find me there at least 4 times a week. Other places I like to go to is the NC Arboretum, NC Art Museum trails and park, Duke Gardens, Ferrington Village.

 I started creating very early. I don’t remember when I didn’t create. I always like to draw and make things. I really started to get serious about painting 25 years ago when my children were small.  It was an escape for me and still is.

I like to explore different mediums and do not prefer one over another when I choose to create something the idea usually dictates what medium I will use. I look forward to the future when drawing and painting go 3D. I have seen prototypes of 3D pens so I know it won’t be long.

Life, nature and my students inspire me

 I form ideas, sketch and take a lot of photos while traveling. I paint in my studio where I have access to all my materials. I usually am working on several projects at one time.

I chose Rushingwater Studios because I liked the name and moving water is a powerful force, I just thought it would make a powerful business name

My goals? I teach a lot just about everyday here at my studio in Cary. I am working on my online classes and would like to formalize that soon. I will continue to paint, draw etc until my last breath because I love it so I guess it would be to sell more artwork and to continue to grow my client base.

When I am not creating I am traveling, gardening,taking care of my home and family, or visiting my friends.
