Meet Our Talented & Inspiring Instructors

Although we all teach different workshops, we use the same instructional format so once a student takes one workshop, the way the rest are presented will be familiar.

I grew up a native of Atlanta and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Georgia Southern University then spent 22 years in medical sales. Throughout my career, I loved dabbling on the weekends with faux finishes and began rehabbing furniture before it became the widespread thing to do. After refurbishing a lakehouse with completely redone furniture, I realized I had a love for taking something old and making it new again. A friend saw my work and asked me to assist her on a large faux finish job. Two times on the scaffolding was enough for me and I went back to doing what I loved, refinishing and rehabbing furniture.
When the opportunity came up to be an Annie Sloan Stockist and be in the retail world of furniture painting and refinishing, I decided to open a shop and learned that I had a second love of teaching. I taught students and learned myself. I took many workshops through those years including a textile workshop in France with Melanie Royals. I sold the shop to help my Mom care for my ailing Dad and textiles became my go to creative outlet. I have been painting on silk and silk screening since.
I lost my Dad in 2018 as well as a sister to breast cancer and recently another sister to ovarian cancer. I know first hand, that becoming involved in a project can ease the mind, heal just a little of the hurt and help pass the time.
Last year, I donated 40 painted scarves to a hospice facility in Romania where my husband and I go regularly on mission trips. I have since returned to France for more training and look forward to sharing these skills with students online. This is an easy art to learn, it’s how elaborate you make it that gives you your own creative twist.
I established Metamorphose Studios in 2009 as a creative outlet for myself looking for something new and different to add to my faux design skills. I have since morphed old forgotten furniture into beautiful statement pieces for designers, clients and collectors. I teach other DIY enthusiasts how to transform their upholstered furniture both in the studio and online. My students have created incredible upholstered pieces and I get excited teaching them!
As a Colorado native, I grew up mostly outdoors tending to numerous animals ranging from horses, cats and dogs to a rescued pheasant named Speedy.
Outside of the time I spent with animals, I could be found drawing and painting everything around me.
After attending Kansas City Art Institute for Fine Art and receiving my BFA from Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design, I have expanded my skills beyond oil with the use of acrylic, iron, wood, gold leaf and steel. My passion for animals and art has led me to using the combination of various mediums to create a collection of charismatic animals, specializing in pet portraiture. My work aims to memorialize an animal as tribute to the joy we receive from them.
I currently live in Arvada Colorado with my husband and daughter.
Hi! My name is Cindee Lundin. I live in Marana Arizona just outside of Tucson.
I have formal studies in fine art along with invaluable apprenticeships. I was born with a creative soul and I feel it is important to pass on the years of knowledge and experience that I have acquired so that others may experience the same joy that I do when creating.
I have been a leading decorative artist for the past 25 years. I have been commissioned across the Nation for my decorative work which includes bas relief in both plaster and concrete, sculptures, fine art, murals, and decorative finishes. I continue to be involved at the national level as an instructor for events such as World of Concrete, Concrete Décor Show, Art Fusion, International Decorative Artisans League, and have been selected as a featured artist at World of Concrete, Las Vegas in 2006, 2016, and 2019.
I continue to take both private and public art commissions throughout the United States. I work in mixed media and concrete has become well integrated into all of my work because of my love for permanence, color and texture. I integrate recycled materials, glass, natural stone and gems into my pieces to create calm, peace, joy and beauty.
More than anything, I look forward to creating and sharing the art of concrete with you!
