Hello dear readers!

I’ve been so grateful for the support of my latest online classes and workshops! Thank you so much for all your sharing, love and participation!

I’m constantly amazed by this generous, creative online community! So…this week I wanted to celebrate some of the women around me and spread the word about the awesome stuff they are doing!

Today, I wanted to share about a fantastic online workshop with an incredible line up of teachers hosted by the talented Kara Bullock! Check out the Angels Among Us Workshop!

A mini Mixed Media Project!

Hello my creative friends!

How’s life been treating you? We have been having crazy hot weather for Portland so I’m living in long flowy summer dresses and sipping lots of iced coffee! I hope your summer or winter (depending on your corner of the world) is going well!

So some of you may have seen my “teaser” image that I shared a little while ago on Instagram…well I’m finally ready to let the cat out of the bag. ;)

I’m excited to announce a new Mini Mixed Media Project class that I just opened up! It’s called the “Wing It” project! This will be the first in a series of projects that will be set at a very affordable price and geared towards those who may not want to commit to a full class but are yearning for a fun, approachable, creative project to do in a day!

Why don’t I just let you watch this quick video to learn more…

For a while now, I’ve been a little bit in love with wings! Okay, A LOT in love! Since taking a beautiful class by Danielle Donaldson where she did a wing-themed lesson, I can’t stop obsessing over the magical shape of a bird’s wing. Such a beautiful balance of exquisite engineering and graceful beauty!

I’ve done several paintings of wings, both small and large and I’ve finally figured out an easy, step by step way for ANYONE to create a wing painting!

So if you love wings as much as I do…come on over to my site to learn more, register and join me in the classroom!

Create Art on your iPhone

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!

static1.squarespaceSo 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!

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!
