spinksWe enjoyed a conversation recently with one of our long-time customers, portraitist Johanna Spinks. For the past several years, she has been doing public portrait projects of remarkable people in her town, first in Ventura (where Kevin Costner was involved) and now in Malibu. People from all walks of life sign up to sit for an alla prima portrait, and their life story is published in the local paper along with the portrait. spinks2 The Face of Ventura (above) is now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Ventura County. Spinks studied with Raymond Kinstler, portraitist of seven U.S. presidents, as well as Morgan Weistling and Jeremy Lipking. She offers classes and workshops in various locations in Southern California.
