Paint ‘N Sip Led by Instructor in 2023!
Thanks to Perpetua Hingi, we will be offering a FREE guided experience this year in the Paint ‘N Sip section. There is no pre-registration, and there may be a short wait to get a seat. Plan for about a 20 minute session where Perpetua will demonstrate painting a scene as you follow along. Or, just observe and sip as she instructs.
Perpetua Hingi is a painter/illustrator located in the Capital Region. She specializes in ethereal portraits with a focus on the Divine Feminine. Her inspiration comes both from her imagination and detailed pieces like those of Heirmoynus Bosch. You can find Perpetua near plants or flowers as her day job is a florist. Floral arrangements are another way she expresses her artistry. Perpetua feels that her artwork is a direct expression of who she is. Striking, intense, graceful and soft. She enjoys depth, layers, and art of story telling. Transformation is her calling and art empowers her to do so. Art allows her to connect with the Creator within her and it reminds her to trust the process.Visit Perpetua on Instagram
