About the Instructor
Eugenio Wilson, from New Orleans, LA. with strong family ties from Honduras, always expressed himself creatively through pen, pencil, or brush as a child. His parents, Sonia and Henderson, discovered his love for art and nurtured it from the beginning along with encouragement from family members. Today, in Atlanta, he continues his passion for art by creating colorful abstract paintings, drawings, and woodcuts as he search for relationships between shapes, colors, movement, emphasis, rhythm, and lines in a never ending odyssey of creativity, consciousness, and knowledge of self. His mentor, Sue Jane Smock, world renowned woodcut printmaker, provided him with the grounding and knowledge to move forward in art as a creative and expressive medium. Other famous artists that influenced him were Joan Miro, Motherwell, Picasso, Atlan, Pollack, and Kandinsky. His hope is to one day become an Art Teacher or Art Therapist and bring about conscious and expressive art from future generations through his own expressive voice, thoughts, and journey.  Read more here
