Hello! How is everyone doing?
Life has been hectic around here but it’s all good! I’ve been busy working on getting my first online Mixed Media & Encaustic class launched! It was a fantastic success and I am so beyond grateful to have a wonderful class of artists! You should see the work they are already creating! Blows me away!
But…I’ve also had other things in the works!
The lovely Jeanne Oliver has invited me to create a new class for her abundant online creative network and I couldn’t be more pleased to oblige!
So, I’ve decided to create another digital art class – but this time for the iPhone – called Mobile Art Magic!
So what’s all this about you might ask? Well let me tell you a little about the class…
Our iPhones have become an integral part of our daily lives. We carry them with us at all times – we don’t leave home without them! So…why shouldn’t we be using them creatively too? You can make beautiful, rich art right on your iPhone! Sure you could play Candy Crush….OR you could use your passion for Art and create something you love!
Expand your knowledge of color, experiment with composition and use your own photography to compose stunning, layered pieces of ART! Print them out and hang them on your walls!
Here are a few of the creations I’ve made using only my iPhone!
From landscapes to self-portraits! Don’t underestimate the power of that iPhone in your pocket!
This one week course will give you the knowledge of which apps to use and how to combine them to achieve gorgeous results!
I’m so excited to be launching this class on Jeanne’s wonderful network.
Early Registration will begin July 7th, 2015 and the class will open September 21, 2015!

Much love to you all! Keep creating!

I hope all is well! Just got back from a gorgeous weekend in the Oregon wine country with my hubby! We were celebrating our 12th Wedding Anniversary! We stayed at the most beautiful resort – The Allison Inn & Spa. Stunning! Highly recommend it!
But now we are home and it’s back to business! I’m really excited too because my Online Mixed Media & Encaustic workshop opens tomorrow and it’s full of wonderfully inspiring creatives! I can’t wait to see what they create and I’m honored to be their teacher!
There is still time to sign up so come join us!!
Have a beautiful week!

Hello my creative friends!
I’m getting really excited because my Mixed Media & Encaustic Classroom opens in only 7 days!! We have a lovely big class full of wonderful artists! I can’t wait to see what they all create!
I have some good news too — after several very kind requests to extend the early bird price…I have decided to do just that…how could I resist you guys!? :)
Our class is approaching 100 students but I think there is room for more! Why not? That’s what I love about online learning! The more the merrier! We will form our own vibrant group of online creatives. So cool!
SO…if you missed the early registration price or have been on the fence, I encourage you to make the leap and come join us! Tell your friends! It’s going to be a blast! Feeling a little apprehensive about Encaustics? Don’t worry, I make it easy and you will fall in love with the process! I promise, all of my students have!
Over 4 hours of video instruction, 4 very elaborate and gorgeous projects, access to my resources and more! It’s self paced so take it when you have time and guess what…no rush….because you have lifetime access to our beautiful online classroom and all the content!
ONLY $52! Not too shabby right? A fine way to kick off the summer!
To sign up…click below!
Can’t wait to see you in class!

Hi there! How are you guys? Hope all is well with you!
I’m starting my Monday out fully caffeinated and buzzing with excitement – Robin and I both got digital art accepted into The Mobile Digital Art & Creativity Summit in Palo Alto, CA! WOO! This is THE event for iPad and Mobile artists! Some really amazing artists are going to be in this show! I can’t tell you yet…cuz it’s still a bit of a secret but soon I will share some of them with you! ;)
We are so thrilled! Over 1200 entries of digital art were submitted and only 100 pieces were selected to be exhibited! These are our two pieces that were accepted…my crow lady…
“The Messenger” 2015 (created with Procreate, Repix and Stackables apps on iPad Air)
and Robin’s beautiful self-portrait…
“Lovely duck show me the way” 2015 (created on the iPad using Procreate)
We can’t wait to fly to sunny Cali and attend this exciting event in August! What a great honor and really a validating experience now that we are both teaching our own ONLINE DIGITAL ART CLASS – Paint & Pixels! Registration is open and we already have over 130 students from all over the world!!
If you haven’t used your iPad creatively we invite you to check it out! You won’t regret it and it can literally revolutionize your artistic practice!! We promise! If you are curious…you can also join us in the Paint & Pixels Info Facebook group. We are here to answer any questions! Come hang with us and see what our students are already doing with their iPads as they prepare for class to open in September! So very cool!
Have a fantastic Monday!
