Course Description

I am a gatherer. I gather vintage papers, photographs, leftover bits of my own work, words from magazines, color palettes that inspire, foraged finds and composition ideas wherever I can find them. I often use these gathered pieces in my new works but first they often find themselves layered on my studio wall. With simple artist’s tape I begin layering all of the little bits of beauty that I have found. This is how I document ideas, new classes, the palette and marks of a new piece of work and to bring my little collections together in a way that I can see clearer what I am being pulled toward.

In this course I share my process of gathering inspiration, how I organize what I find beautiful, a printable mini workbook so you can document what you find beautiful through your five senses, the order in which I put inspiration boards together and how I use each one to guide intentions, our business and future creative work.

Together we will create an intentions board, future online course board and a board to inspire a new art series.

This course is for anyone that wants to use beauty, intention and visuals to stay intentional and focused in life and work.
