Paint & Pixels Class Starts Soon!

Hello my creative friends,

I hope this email finds you well!

I just wanted to pop in and remind everyone that there are ONLY 2 short weeks till the Paint & Pixels Online Classroom opens!

Robin and I are giddy with anticipation! We can’t wait to share all the power and creative expression that the iPad delivers! You may never create the same way again!

From manipulating your own photography, to digitally painting layered masterpieces, we have covered the gamut! And don’t forget that we will be showing you how to bring in those traditional ART materials too! The marriage of Paint & Pixels is one artistic romance you don’t want to miss! We are pretty sure you are going to fall in love! So many already have!

In fact, due to the overwhelming response to Paint & Pixels we have decided to close registration on September 21st. Exactly one week after class starts. This will allow us to focus on this first group of Paint & Pixels students. We have only a few spots left so if you have been waiting for that perfect day to give yourself this class – now’s the time to act! Remember, as a registered student you will have life-time access to the classroom and all the videos. To learn more and register click the button below…

We also wanted to share with you some of our most recent iPad creations…

These first three were done by Robin. She creates such soft, whimsical beauty while retaining a lovely painterly quality! Love that! I especially adore that last one – Such a tender self-portrait. To see more of Robin’s art please do go visit her gorgeous website!

I was lucky enough to get a large stunning print of this one from Robin for my birthday! She’s going up in the studio in a beautiful frame. She’s even more exquisite in person!Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 11.45.48 AM Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 11.45.17 AM

These last three are by moi…and I can’t even express how much fun it was to create these. I just love how free I can be on the iPad with no worry of messing up! So wonderful for exploring your own style and mark making! Gotta love that UNDO button! Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 11.44.46 AM Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 11.44.30 AM Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 11.44.12 AM

I hope you all have a wonderful week! For those of you who have signed up for Paint & Pixels already we are so excited to have you in class!

Much love to you all!

I’ve been exploring Art journaling recently and it’s been so enjoyable. What a wonderful way to explore, experiment and play all within my beautiful vintage ledger.

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!

cclogo1b

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.

The Art of Seeing starts 31st of August

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!

Art to Adore: Maria Pace-Wynters

Hi there!

How is everyone!? Been uber busy around here with family visitors, summer camps and filming for my latest online Art classes!

However, amongst the chaos I try to make time to be quiet and still, so I can reflect on how this amazing life is unfolding. (I’m trying to learn how to meditate – not easy for me!)

One of the other things I absolutely love to do to unwind is to peruse Pinterest and Instagram for new art to love on. My latest ART crush is on the work of the amazingly talented, mixed media artist – Maria Pace-Wynters.

Gah!! Her work is just drop dead gorgeous. Vibrant colors, lyrical line work and angelic faces! Here have a look…

Her work literally makes me gasp! These stunning shots are from her Instagram feed. I highly recommend you check it out so you can witness the beauty of these creations!

She also has a lovely Etsy shop! I just HAD to acquire a few of her prints!

Okay lovelies…gotta get back to work! Hope you enjoyed looking at these! So very inspiring!

Much love to you all.
