Does this sound familiar?
I don’t have time to fit my art into my busy schedule, I don't make enough time for "ME"...
I’m struggling to “develop or find” my unique artistic style...
I freeze in front of the blank page, I don’t know where to begin…
I worry about originality, it's all been done before and it creates fear and I'm afraid to do anything...
I have taken dozens of classes in person and online and I struggle to create are that is all my own...
I have lots of stuff{supplies, tools, canvases}, but get overwhelmed and don’t know what to do or where to start...
I spend a lot of money on supplies, but they are sitting on the shelf. I just hoard them and they look pretty...

With so many art workshops, free videos, online classes, and books out there, finding your artistic style and creative artwork can be overwhelming, time-consuming, and expensive. 

Between sifting through endless free videos, reading books and art magazines, taking numerous online workshops, going to the art store, organizing your studio and diving into a painting, the amount of energy it takes to create new, original and inspiring artwork can be overwhelming and get exhausting. 

More often than not, you probably find yourself sitting in front of a blank canvas staring aimlessly or using the same colors/themes/ideas over and over with no focus or maybe you're overwhelmed with so many ideas you don’t know where to start.

….NOT anymore


BE PART of the NEW way to learn, move past the overwhelm and get into your creative groove and become a CREATIVE SOUL VISIONARY.

The content + community is the focus and developing your artistic style...YOU are the foundation of this new community. We are kicking off the NEW YEAR with all new content and I'm giving you first access to join before the price increases in January. So join early to lock in your low monthly rate!

Here's a preview of the first quarter of content for 2019. Each month we explore a variety of ideas/topics/etc based on a quarterly theme. This is a tentative schedule. I like to have the ability to change and add to it depending on what I'm working on in my studio.

Q1~ WATERMEDIA explorations..during the first three months of 2019 we'll explore a variety of mixed media techniques using watermedia {inks, watercolors + high flow acrylics plus water-soluble pencils/markers/crayons}

January - artistic goals/studio explorations + watermedia meditations

February - collage watermedia effects + iridescent paint

March - printmaking with texture mediums + watermedia

Q2 ~ natural color + WILD inks...more to come

This is a place for you to develop long-lasting artist friendships, connect with like-minded people and share your art in a safe and creative space. This is not an online workshop or rigid step-by-step program, it’s an online experience that you will help build. 

Choose what you need at the moment, be inspired by the colorful posts, PLAYbooks or COLOR inspiration boards and more.

We'll be building this NEW online community together. So if you get in early, you'll be part a select group that will build the foundation.
