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’m excited to share not only my tools but also how I use both my left and right hand to activate both sides of my brain in the creative process. It’s truly been a game changer for me! Click below to learn more and register…
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.

How is your week treating you? I hope all is well in your world.
You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been a little obsessed lately…and not just with Art in general but in particular – Portraiture! I’ve always loved drawing faces but recently its become a daily practice of pushing myself, striving for more accuracy, expression and depth. I’m exploring techniques and mediums like never before and after I complete one face I quickly begin another.
All this energy has sprung forth for a couple of reasons…but the MAIN one is because I accepted an opportunity to teach on the Let’s Face It Online workshop! This year has been about growth, so I’ve said YES to the wonderful doors that are opening to me! However, I had no idea what an impact this would have on my own deep desire to hone my skills and better my practice as an Artist.
Here is some of the work I’ve been doing to prepare to teach this class…
I’m enjoying the feeling of a challenge and there is nothing better than feeling yourself expand! This class will be so wonderful. I do hope you will join me and the other talented teachers for this fantastic Portraiture class!
I can’t wait to share some of my own techniques and creative processes! Click here to learn more! Don’t miss out of the early registration price too! It ends Dec.1st!
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!!
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!
