Early Registration Open! Sacred Vestments | Expressive Portraits and Figures with Kate Thompson

The inspiring and prolific Kate Thompson is back on our creative network with a brand new course!  It is an honor to have had Kate share her techniques and gifts with us over the years and to love the students on our site so lavishly. Kate will be traveling with me May of 2019 for my last The Living Studio abroad (at least for the foreseeable future) because of our joint love of history, imagery, vintage papers and use of …

We Are Extending Our 50% Off Sale!

This sale is a pretty big deal for all of our members on our creative network and this migration from our Ning site to this new network has been a pretty big deal for us. What we thought would be a much smaller project took over a year and two different designers, developers and working with hosting options that we had no idea about. We had never seen anyone do what we were hoping to do and we could only …

Our Summer Line Up

For me summer is pool time, catching up on reading, coffee on the back porch, hiking, days in the yard and my art supplies with me wherever I go. The best thing about a summer online course is that you can take moments to learn and then head out into YOUR world to create. Summer is too wonderful to only give yourself creating time in your studio. We have some incredible classes this summer that promise to make this your …

Finding Myself Missing Writing

[Within the past two weeks we have packed up a home, moved outside of town onto acreage, unpacked, started to make a house a home, went to the Daddy Daughter Ball and drank a lot of coffee] It seems that with the busyness of life, family and business that I don’t choose to write out my thoughts here as often. My free time now may be a late night walk, cuddling up on the couch, sitting with a teen at …

Home Again {jiggity jig}

We are home from Italy and slowly adjusting to the time change. We missed our children so much (but not so much that we didn’t love our time alone). I always think the break away from them helps me to come home more focused on how I want to love on them even better. When we have a bit of separation I am able to see myself better and helps me to reevaluate how I spend my time and energy. …

Italy {Here We Come}

I can’t believe that we are leaving for Italy in five days! It has been my dream for as long as I can remember to travel to Italy and that I get to go to teach art is more than I can process. When I first started my business and I began creating on a regular basis I have said over and over that the Lord answered a prayer of my heart that I didn’t even know I had been …

I wanted a place where women could connect with other creative women, get inspired and even watch videos for free. Two months ago we launched our new free video series Creativity Takes Courage. This is an interview series where I interview different creative people from around the world. It has been so …
