Mina Villegas Art
Mina Villegas is a paint pouring artist based in Southern California. She and her Husband of Awesomeness (HoA) create beautiful paint pouring tutorial videos for her YouTube channel, Mina Villegas Art.
Mina started her professional career as a Doctor of Chiropractic, then married and became a full time Mom to two beautiful daughters. When the kids were both in school, she started working with succulents and fell head over heels in love with the colors and shapes and textures. She then started her own landscape design firm which created gorgeous Succulent Tapestry landscapes for residential and commercial business properties. Her use of color in plants and rocks and weaving them together was a launching pad for her art journey. Choosing the right colors and creating pleasing composition has always been one of her strong suits. She began paint pouring in October of 2018 and has been learning and teaching ever since. She has participated in Art Shows around Los Angeles and taught many students the basics and more advanced techniques of acrylic paint pouring. Her easy-going attitude and sense of adventure and experimentation create some gorgeous artwork and a welcoming learning experience for students of all levels. Her classes discuss color theory, consistency for different techniques, working on big canvases, tips and tricks of the professionals, using negative space, and creating beautiful composition in your artwork.
Mina and her Husband of Awesomeness live in California with their two teenage daughters, their cat Ming Ming and their puppy Baxter.
