Reflections: Paint Your Story {our first online course for 2016}

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 your creative process will change your creative heart and the art that you produce.

Your own authentic art is only a story away!


Join me for a two week art journaling online course all about unraveling your own story and creating authentic art that only you can tell.

When I started to see my own stories as being meaningful and significant my art began to change.  When I could look back and find my own timeline and defining moments I was able to start digging deeper as an artist and my creating became more of a time of remembering, honoring, forgiving, healing and celebrating.  It made me more intentional about where I wanted to go creatively and how I wanted to share it.
