A NEW way to create

Hello creative friends!

It’s a snowy day here and I’m just getting ready to start painting but before I do, I wanted to drop in and say hello and share some art with you.

The students in Between Shadow & Light are making some amazing discoveries and creating such beautiful, soulful portraits! I’m completely thrilled to hear they are learning that their non-dominant hand has much to offer and can open up a NEW way to engage in their creativity.

Here is just a snippet of the beauty coming out of the classroom from these incredible artists…

Due to this class’ immense popularity, I’ve removed the class size limit. So come on in and join over 250 students from all over the world. Start creating in a BRAND NEW WAY! If you have been looking for a class to spark your creativity, open your heart and get you out of your rut this is the one…

Here are some of what the students have been saying…

“Tried a sketch using only my non-dominant hand. So much difference … especially with my inner critic! It’s like I don’t expect much from my left hand, so I don’t criticize as much? I am definitely going to use my left hand more.” – Tracy

“I haven’t felt this free and relaxed in a long time while painting. Just let myself go!” – Lynda

“I’m really finding my comfort zone and OCD is put off side without my normal face mapping and creating of facial planes when drawing with my non dominant hand BUT my emotional state centered around the ART is more peaceful and happy.” – Christy

 

 See you in class.

An Art Tutorial for you!

Hello friends!

Happy New Year! I hope your 2017 is off to a beautiful start.

I have been very busy preparing lessons for my new class and I was challenged by a fellow artist to create a piece of art inspired by one of her wonderful ballet photographs. I couldn’t resist, so here it is! In my usual style, she goes through several transitions. I worked quickly and loosely with both my dominant and non-dominant hands. I hope you enjoy.

If you enjoyed this video I have many more FREE tutorials. You can check them out here.

Much love and gratitude to you all!

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 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!
