Sacred Undoing

May 16, 2017

I am so excited to let all of you know that I will be teaching another workshop this year at Jeanne Oliver’s studio. I am so very honored to be asked back. Teaching at Jeanne’s studio is a dream. She pampers you and honors all those who set foot on her property. God has given Jeanne an amazing gift of making women feel valued and heard. And can I just say, Jeanne is literally one of the funniest people I know. If you can come to any of Jeanne’s workshops, you will not regret it for a minute. Promise.

By the way, I just also want you to know that you are worth this kind of investment in yourself. So worth it.

Sacred Undoing.

I believe that creativity is sacred. Undoing fears, rules, and limitations that hold us back from creativity is sometimes our most important work.

When I look back on my creative journey, I can see all the ways that I had to remove all of the limitations that I put on myself in order to become the artist that I am today.

Let’s undo them together. I promise it won’t be as terrifying as you think it will.

Gathering Beauty- A Study in Still Life Painting

March 1, 2017

Hello everyone! I am so excited to share with you all my brand new class that I will be offering with Jeanne Oliver Designs. It is called Gathering Beauty- A Study in Still Life Painting. I can’t remember the last time I have been so excited about creating and sharing this work with other people. It feels so new and fresh, just like the Spring.

With Spring right around the corner, I am looking forward to the longer days and new life. I often feel a surge of creativity around this time of the year. There is something about the warm sunshine and gentle breezes that calls me to pick up my paintbrush and paint with abandon. With the promise of new life and all things green, I find myself drawn to vibrant color and painting flowers in my artwork. I have this need to gather and document all the beauty around me.
