Mini Masters | Instant Access

The first idea I ever had for an online course was the Studying Under The Masters series. It was not the first online course I put out into the world but once we created the online workshop, it ended up being a three-part series with 16 artists studying under a master artist and thousands of students learning with them. Creating this series was a joy for me because I am a history lover, I love to read and study and …

Reflections: Paint Your Story Art Journaling Workshop {come and meet the guest artists}

All of my courses come from an authentic place of walking through something, discovery and/or personal growth. One of the biggest lessons I learned creatively in 2015 was that it was time to really tell my story. To hold nothing back and to start letting it spill all over the page. There is art I have never shared and maybe art I will choose not to share. That is your freedom also. Getting your story out and letting it guide …
