Meet Sharyn Scully

I have been training other artist for over 30 years. When I started working for Christian Dior in New York City, it quickly became apparent that it was rewarding to work with others and teach the newest techniques and trends  in the industry. To this day, I always put myself in situations where I can work with other artists of all experience levels. Each artist has his or her own way of creating through their own art through perception and technique. Once you know the basics, the sky’s the limit to build from there! I have nearly three decades of experience that I would love to share with you. Join me on this wonderful journey of exploration and creativity! You will always have your knowledge and skills to fall back on.
