Artist Inspired : Juna Biagioni

Hi friends,

I hope your week is going well! I, for one am feeling a little overwhelmed BUT in the best way possible! I’m basically bursting at the seams with inspiration! It seems to be coming in at every angle. Each day, I awake a little more excited to begin the day and swim through this sea of creativity – desperately trying to keep my head above water!

I can’t seem to learn fast enough or create quickly enough! The days slip by while my head is down, my hand in constant motion. Drawing and creating like a kid with a new box of crayons. It’s dizzying, bewildering, exhilarating and yes, at times a bit terrifying! This is how creativity seems to work…at least for me and the best thing I can do is share it right? Spread this crazy energy around before it consumes me!

So today, I am doing just that! I have recently discovered a new artist to me. What a gift when this happens! Her name is Juna Biagioni and her techniques of creating mixed media portraits are…well…enchanting!

I couldn’t stop watching her videos, so I wanted to share them with you!

This first one is beyond beautiful…

This is another gorgeous creation! Don’t you love her mark making and use of color! Divine!!

Please do go visit Juna and explore her lovely site! She has an online portrait class coming up that you know I will be taking!! She is also a fellow guest teacher with me in the Let’s Face It Portrait class as well as the online mixed media workshop – Love Art Happy Life.

What a delight to discover yet another wonderful teacher to keep the creative community flourishing and my own creativity flowing! Thank you Juna for so generously offering these free videos that surely have inspired so many!

I hope you guys enjoy these!

Online Photography Workshop – Camera Craft

Hello!

Happy Friday! On this gorgeous summer day, I’m excited to share with you that the lovely and talented Galia Alena asked me to be a contributing teacher to her new online Photography workshop – Camera Craft! Of course, I accepted!

Here’s the workshop description straight from Galia…

Camera Craft is designed to help demystify your camera and the technical side of photography, empowering you to follow your inspiration, and make expressive and beautiful images. It is photography 101 and it is so much more. I want the participants to walk away feeling like they have enough of a grasp of the technical stuff that they can really let their creative voices sing. Between all the samples and the guest contributors you wont be able to help but be inspired.

I’m so very thrilled to be a part of this AMAZING course!

Photography, as many of you know, played a huge role in leading me back to my creativity. Essentially, it led me back to what I love – ART – and for that, I’ll be eternally grateful to this magical art form! The class will actually be divided into two 5 week modules – “The Art of Seeing” & “Into the Light”. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR BOTH.

Into the Light starts 26th of October

As a contributor, I will be sharing a few tutorials on some of my post-production editing, including a peek into how I edit photos on my iPhone! Super fun and addictive I assure you!

Extended Early Bird Price for my Mixed Media & Encaustic Workshop

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!

classroom header with textI 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!
