Hi there!

I hope all is well! Just got back from a gorgeous weekend in the Oregon wine country with my hubby! We were celebrating our 12th Wedding Anniversary! We stayed at the most beautiful resort - The Allison Inn & Spa. Stunning! Highly recommend it!

But now we are home and it's back to business! I'm really excited too because my Online Mixed Media & Encaustic workshop opens tomorrow and it's full of wonderfully inspiring creatives! I can't wait to see what they create and I'm honored to be their teacher!

Extended Early Bird Price for my Mixed Media & Encaustic Workshop

Hello my creative friends!

I'm getting really excited because my Mixed Media & Encaustic Classroom opens in only 7 days!! We have a lovely big class full of wonderful artists! I can't wait to see what they all create!

I have some good news too...after several very kind requests to extend the early bird price...I have decided to do just that...how could I resist you guys!? :)

Our class is approaching 100 students but I think there is room for more! Why not? That's what I love about online learning! The more the merrier! We will form our own vibrant group of online creatives. So cool!

SO...if you missed the early registration price or have been on the fence, I encourage you to make the leap and come join us! Tell your friends! It's going to be a blast! Feeling a little apprehensive about Encaustics? Don't worry, I make it easy and you will fall in love with the process! I promise, all of my students have!

Over 4 hours of video instruction, 4 very elaborate and gorgeous projects, access to my resources and more! It's self paced so take it when you have time and guess what...no rush....because you have lifetime access to our beautiful online classroom and all the content!

ONLY $52! Not too shabby right? A fine way to kick off the summer!

Can't wait to see you in class!

Art Playdate with Jane Davenport

Hello friends,

Hope your Summer is off to a fabulous start! As you know I've been super busy with my two online classes! It's been such a rewarding experience to build these and launch them! Thank you for all your support!

So, I'm gonna do a bit of a flashback to April when I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Ms. Jane Davenport! Out of the blue she contacted me via Facebook and told me she would be in Portland in the Springtime! She would be visiting with her friend Diana Rast and we immediately made plans to have a little Art Playdate!

My dear friend Robin helped me prepare the studio for the event! Thanks Robin!

Of course I wanted everything to be perfect!

We started the morning with fresh coffees and some laughs! Jane and Diana were both totally adorable and so much fun!

I felt so lucky to host them!

Then we headed to the studio to get a jump start on the project I had planned for the day! We were going to be doing mixed media collages and paintings on plaster and then using encaustic wax on top! Fun fun!

Jane had to get an antler selfie!  ;)

We had a beautiful lunch on the lake!

Then back to the studio to finish up! Jane and Diana both completed beautiful pieces!

It was such an amazing day! Thank you Jane and Diana for coming to spend the day with me!

On that note...I must share with you Jane's latest online workshop!

It's all about the beautiful art of Figure Drawing! Jane's lyrical line work and bold colors make for striking and graceful figurative work! Plus, with her background in fashion illustration she has tips and tricks you don't want to miss!!

Check out this great promo video for the class!

Looks so fabulous right? Go sign up here.

Okay my creative friends...I'm back to work!

Have a wonderful weekend!
