I’m Mary Hildesheim from the Bothell, Mill Creek area in Washington state. If you are an experience painter or if you have never painted before, you will love my fast and easy technique. You will have fun and paint an entire project in 3 hours.

I picked up a paint brush for the first time in 2000 and haven’t stopped painting!  I was certified as a One Stroke teacher and as an In Home Art teacher in 2004.  Since then I have developed my own method for doing Landscapes using Acrylics.  I try to develop two new original paintings every month.    I am fortunate to be able to have classes in my home.  I have taught at Michael’s, the Senior center, and many other places including the Alaska Cruise.  I have taught close to 2,000 classes in my where I teach now.

My life has gone from boring to busy.  I learned one thing for sure. You just can’t be depressed and paint at the same time!  I thank God every day for the chance that he has given me to teach.  I am blessed when I finish a painting and can see God’s fingerprints in it.  I see His hand in every class.  With Him, all things are possible.

I have a wonderful and very supportive husband who helps me set up for my classes.  He and God have been my encouragement!  We have 2 grown children and 6 Grandchildren who all love to paint!

You can contact me by email or by phone. 425 481 5215 or Marysart@gmail.com

  1. I live in Texas but my daughter lives in Spokane, WA and is interested in painting.
    Could you send her this email, please.
    I love to paint, too, but too far away. Will you be giving lessons on YouTube, too?


    • Hi Ann, I have several free video’s on this site and you are so welcome to access them. Please send my site to your daughter and maybe she will be able to come to a class someday. If not she can use the video’s I made to do some painting right at home. Thanks for asking 🙂

    • Hi Jeanette, I just saw your comment and I am not sure if I replied or not. I have been ill an am just getting back at it! I live in WA. so you are probably too far away to come to classes but feel free to use any of my little short video’s to practice with. I don’t do online teaching and I really would love to have you attend a class. I teach in my home in the Mill Creek Area. Let me know if that is something you could do or if there is anything I can help you with or any questions that I can answer for you 🙂
