My name is Toni and I am the creator of Trendy Transformations. I live and work out of the Kansas City area. I am a Registered Nurse by trade and spent my greater than 25 year career caring for Oncology patients and the last of those years working in hospice care. I loved caring for these very special people and being a part of their lives but found myself needed to give my heart a break. So I stopped practicing nursing in 2017. I had always wanted to learn to paint furniture and the timing was right to pursue that passion.
I originally started painting furniture and learned how to turn a piece of furniture that had seen better days into something new and refreshing. I loved that. But it was not going to be enough for me.
About 2 years ago I began to see videos come across my Facebook feed of this amazing fluid art called Acrylic Pour Art. I had to know more!! So, many many YouTube videos later, I bought the supplies and vowed to teach myself how to create these beautiful masterpieces. Although having a very creative mind, I was no artist! But never giving up, I BECAME an artist! Many hours of trial and error and never giving up, I was able to find my niche. That was not going to be enough either. I desired for others who like me, never felt artistic to be able to create something beautiful and something they could be proud of. Hence, Acrylic Pour Art Classes was born. I am thrilled to bring classes to so many venues all throughout the city. Who knows, maybe we will be in your town next!! Have a class space or know of one in your area? Let me know. We will take it from there!
I am a native Iowan but have lived in and loved Kansas City since 1991. My sweet husband David and I live in Greenwood and together have 3 grown children.
