How’s life been treating you? Well, I hope. I’ve been busy busy wrapping up filming for my latest class and planning some very exciting retreats…more info to come! ;)
However, I always try and sneak in time to find inspiring art videos on YouTube and I just have to share these with you! The following videos are done by a very talented encaustic artist who I greatly admire – Nancy Crawford. Her work is simple, yet sophisticated. Refined yet rustic.
I love how she works the wax and her other mixed media materials! You guys know I’m hooked on encaustic wax so when I watched these I’m pretty sure I squealed with delight!
Nancy’s videos are quick and perfect for a speedy dose of inspiration!
Inspiring right?! She has so many great technique videos to really get you fired up! You can check her out on her website too!
Let me know if you try any of these techniques! I would love to hear how it goes!
Have a creative day!

I hope your Monday morning is going well! I was up with the birds and on my second cup of coffee already! Yes, I’m a little excited because today I’m launching my very last class for 2015!
Let me fill you in…
Come join me for this one week Online Mixed Media workshop where we explore the beauty and subtlety of white and neutrals! When we strip away color – texture, contrast and ultimately design and composition come to the forefront. We will focus on these artistic aesthetics as we complete three beautifully unique projects:
- A “Zen Abstract” Encaustic Wax Collage using vintage and handmade papers with a focus on balance, simplicity, unity and tranquility.
- A beautiful “Woman in White” Portrait, inspired by Whistler’s painting “Symphony of White I” using acrylic paint and soft chalk pastels while exploring a multitude of milky hues and lessons on drawing the face and figure.
- A “White Horses on the Horizon” landscape painting incorporating, pattern, texture and finally cold wax to create a dreamy finish.
I’m beyond thrilled to share these projects with you! Plus, these creations would make amazing gifts for your loved ones! Just in time for the holidays!
Read more about the class* and register here! Classroom opens Dec 1**.
*As with my last class, there will a limited number of seats and registration will close once it fills to maximum occupancy.
**You will have lifetime access to the classroom so if you are too busy this December then tuck this one away to do after the holidays. A perfect way to decompress!
Have a beautiful, creative week!
With much love and gratitude,

Hello creative friends!
How is your week treating you? I hope all is well in your world.
You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been a little obsessed lately…and not just with Art in general but in particular – Portraiture! I’ve always loved drawing faces but recently its become a daily practice of pushing myself, striving for more accuracy, expression and depth. I’m exploring techniques and mediums like never before and after I complete one face I quickly begin another.
All this energy has sprung forth for a couple of reasons…but the MAIN one is because I accepted an opportunity to teach on the Let’s Face It Online workshop! This year has been about growth, so I’ve said YES to the wonderful doors that are opening to me! However, I had no idea what an impact this would have on my own deep desire to hone my skills and better my practice as an Artist.
Here is some of the work I’ve been doing to prepare to teach this class…
It started with black and white charcoal studies…
and has now led me to color too…looks like I’m a teensy bit in LOVE with my new Sennelier Soft Pastels!!!
I’m enjoying the feeling of a challenge and there is nothing better than feeling yourself expand! This class will be so wonderful. I do hope you will join me and the other talented teachers for this fantastic Portraiture class!
I can’t wait to share some of my own techniques and creative processes! Click here to learn more! Don’t miss out of the early registration price too! It ends Dec.1st!
