A New Year full of creativity

Hello my creative friends! Happy Friday!

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

This is just a quick reminder that the Shades of White classroom is opening back up on Monday. We have a few more spots open if you want to jump in. This best selling Mixed Media class focuses on the subtlety of color and the power of composition. Registration will close on Monday or when we reach maximum occupancy so don’t miss out on this one! It’s a favorite!

Other exciting news – I’m going to be introducing a series of Á la carte classes! These will be pulled from my workshops and will stand alone as single projects. A fabulously affordable way to fill your afternoon with a new project or simply try out something new!

Keep an eye out for a the full Á la carte menu of creative classes coming SOON!

Okay – one last bit of love. You guys know I love encaustics and I also love learning new techniques. Nancy Crawford is a talented encaustic artist and she makes great little tutorial videos. In this one she uses pan pastels with her encaustics and I just love the look. I had to try it myself. Here is a pic of my own work incorporating this technique…

Art to Adore: Nancy Crawford

Hello friends,

How’s life been treating you? Well, I hope. I’ve been busy busy wrapping up filming for my latest class and planning some very exciting retreats…more info to come! ;)

However, I always try and sneak in time to find inspiring art videos on YouTube and I just have to share these with you! The following videos are done by a very talented encaustic artist who I greatly admire – Nancy Crawford. Her work is simple, yet sophisticated. Refined yet rustic.

I love how she works the wax and her other mixed media materials! You guys know I’m hooked on encaustic wax so when I watched these I’m pretty sure I squealed with delight!

Nancy’s videos are quick and perfect for a speedy dose of inspiration!


Inspiring right?! She has so many great technique videos to really get you fired up! You can check her out on her website too!

Let me know if you try any of these techniques! I would love to hear how it goes!

Have a creative day!

Much love,
