NEW Online Portrait Class

Hello there creatives,

I’m thrilled to announce that registration for my BRAND NEW CLASS is now OPEN.  I’ve had so many requests to teach my expressive portrait techniques, so I’ve finally created this mini portrait class.

I’m excited to share not only my tools but also how I use both my left and right hand to activate both sides of my brain in the creative process. It’s truly been a game changer for me! Click below to learn more and register…

I believe that sometimes less is more with portraits. Some of the most expressive work is created with simple materials and often times a lack of color. The focus becomes emotion, line, form and of course shadow and light. These portraits pull us in, make us stop in our tracks and feel!

So, I invite you to join me for this special class where we will explore some of my favorite tools, tricks and tips for creating evocative, expressive portraits.

I’ll look forward to seeing you in class!

A Free Mixed Media Tutorial

Hello lovelies!

How’s it going? Hope all is well in your part of the world!

In the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the most amazing opportunities to meet some on my online friends in real life! I am continually amazed at the beautiful and real connections that form over the internet and the wonderful opportunities that emerge from those connections!

One online friend I would love to meet, is the fabulous Donna Downey! You can imagine how honored I was when she asked me to create a Mixed Media Tutorial for her blog! Woo! So fun! She featured it a few weeks back but I wanted to share it with you guys too, in case you missed it.

This piece is called “Into the Light” and it is a process of stenciling, paint, collage and encaustic wax! And yes, even some sculpture. I hand made her wings with paper, wire and wax.

You can watch the entire process of me creating this OVER HERE!

I hope you enjoy! My plan for the New Year is to create more of these free projects. I’m so excited….I have a list of ideas brewing.

Please do share your experience if you try this project out – I would love to hear from you.

Much love and gratitude,

Over the  past few months I have been studying Degas and honing my figure drawing skills. Degas’ ballerinas proved to be the perfect muse! I’ve dedicated myself to sketching the human form daily and the work is so rewarding.

Here is the preview video for the class!

In this very special class, you will not only learn about the wondrous world of Degas but you will gain new skills in figure drawing, composition and color theory, while expanding your pastel and mixed media expertise.

Whether you are a beginner or an seasoned artist, the techniques and style of Degas will inspire and delight you. His use of color is extraordinary and his meticulous dedication to his art is truly motivating. From my research, I have gleaned some exciting ways for us to study his work and put some of his methods into our own practice.

I would love to have you in class!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Much love and gratitude,
