Meet the owner at Tolebrush
Nilda Rosa Rodriguez, CDA

Nilda has been painting since 1988. Ever since she can remember she enjoyed drawing faces and coloring books. A set of new crayons or an art set was her favorite gift.

She was introduced to Tole Painting by her friend Lori Smith when they were stationed in Columbus, Georgia. Lori asked Nilda if she could accompany her to take Tole Painting classes. Once Nilda saw what it was all about she was hooked. She even bought some books before taking the first class.

Nilda painted solely in acrylics for several years until she had the courage to try oils on her own. Nilda passed her Certification in the still life category at the Society of Decorative Painter's Tampa convention in 2005. In 2007 she started designing in colored pencils. She traveled across the United States and England to teach seminars in oils, acrylics, and colored pencils, as well as being a frequent contributor to The Decorative Painter, official magazine of the Society of Decorative Painters.

She now owns several international painting schools. 

Her biggest passion was painting people and faces. However, she also loves painting birds, flowers, fruits and still life. In this store we sell online classes in Colored Pencils, Oils and Acrylics as well as pattern packets or tutorials in all three of these mediums.
