People often ask me how long it took me to learn to do what I do. I’ll tell you: I don’t know. I’m still learning. Just a couple of weeks ago I attended Twist & Shout Balloon Convention 2015 where I participated in a master class taught by internationally acclaimed Russian artist Irina Lobanova. I’m still working to master her techniques, but my learning won’t stop there. Balloon art is growing and changing, and I plan to grow and change with it. Check out these amazing new flowers I’ve learned to create. We’ve come a long way from putting 3 twists in a long skinny balloon and calling it a dog!
