I have been following Arastasia for YEARS and find her SO incredibly inspiring! In recent years she started offering art classes and I was so incredibly excited because I'm an artist myself wanting to get better at my own craft with painting!! And of all the artists I follow, she's the only one who offers such amazing online, easy to follow classes for beginners and experienced artists alike. And has such an amazingly positive personality that's completely infectious. Just from the 2 classes I've done with her, I learned so much!! And hope to do more in the future 🙂

Arastasia is so, so talented, and such a kind and beautiful soul. I’ve attended tons of her paint classes over the years, and she’s amazing at breaking down the steps and helping you create something you’re proud of, while encouraging to leave perfectionism behind and just be free, whimsical, and creative with it! I’ve also bought a few custom canvas paintings from Arastasia, and some of her own art prints, and all of them are hung around my desk, where I do a lot of my own creative work as a writer! Her paintings are gorgeous every time, remind me to let go of perfection, and inspire me to keep creating and chasing my dreams - every time I look up at them. And the art prints themselves are such good quality; they feel like the real thing with a thickness and texture that allows you to really appreciate the brush strokes, and they look great with or without a frame. She even does wedding paintings, and when I saw the sneak peak of our first kiss photo turned painting, my jaw dropped. She is SO good at what she does, whether she’s working purely with her own ideas and creativity, or you’ve given her a specific request. I can’t wait until I’m not renting anymore so I can have her paint a mural in my house one day!!
I can’t recommend Arastasia enough. Her art, her skills, her customer service, and her personality in general are all top notch and everyone needs a little bit of her creativity in their life!

Arastasia is hands down the most amazing artist that I have had the wonderful privilege of knowing. She turned my inspiration of mountains (my fiancé) and flowers (me) into the most beautiful painting I could ever imagine. She sells it on her website now under the name ‘Jennas Mountains’ if you find yourself so inclined to take a look, which you should. We are so lucky to have her as our photographer for our wedding and can’t wait to have her paint a mural for us one day 🏼🏼🏼

Arastasia is a fantastic artist. Whether it’s a small painting/doodle or a gigantic mural she puts her whole soul into what she is doing. Her attention to detail while at the same time letting the art take her where it will is amazing to watch. Whether it’s a small painting/doodle or a giant mural she puts her all into it. Every piece she does radiates joy and beauty that almost match her own. I have her artwork all over my walls and I’m sure I will be buying more each year!
