First let me tell you a bit more about Ever After in case you haven’t heard about it yet! “Ever After” is a mixed media art & style development course with a fairytale theme hosted by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts. Tam is joined by 15 popular mixed media art teachers who will all share beautiful fairy-tale & myth inspired lessons with you AND they will also divulge all their hints and tips on how they developed their own style and how YOU TOO can find your own unique voice as an artist! :) Yay! You can find out all the details (and sign up with the Early Bird price) by clicking HERE

My chosen tale is Hades & Persephone! My lesson will be inspired by this myth and I already have some fabulous ideas brewing! I’ve not fully developed my lesson idea yet, but I’m excited to be sharing an expressive style of portraiture, involving layering of different media and glazing techniques! Our goal will be to create mystery, beauty and atmosphere. I’m thinking rich colors, moodiness and emotion….all my favorite elements… similar to some of my other portraits…

Registration opens on May 17th 2017 and the class begins on July 1st 2017.

So, if you want to start your summer drawing and painting fairy-tales and myths, exploring your own personal story and style and hang out with a wonderful creative community of like-minded souls, be sure to join once registration opens! :)

Pink blossoms, Spring fever and creativity overload…

Hello lovely readers!

I’ve got Spring Fever! I’m planning and creating like a mad woman and I don’t want to stop. Lol. Even a bad cold isn’t stopping me! I have been in bed for three days but I’m sketching away.

Dreaming of my upcoming retreat to Scotland – (that is Edinburgh Castle). Can’t wait and yes…you can see my sweet kitty companion, Leo has been keeping me company while I rest.

And one more – a moody gal inspired by some vintage fashion photography.

Lucky for me, I have a pretty great view from my cozy bed – the pink blooms of a cherry tree are just starting to pop! One of my favorite things about Spring. They inspired a bit of a Pin-fest and this board emerged…

Oh and speaking of PINK and gorgeous images, my dear friend Georgianna Lane just published her stunning book! You must get it. If you love Paris and flowers then you will adore this…

To go along with all this flurry of Spring energy, I’m having a BIG SALE on our online classes too! Why not!? It’s the perfect time to encourage growth and creativity, right? I would love to have you in class.
