I’ve created this special, free lesson to celebrate my new class - Between Shadow & Light. 

Watch as I open myself up to the process of creating a portrait in layers, while using both my dominant and non-dominant hands. This has been incredibly freeing for me! This journey has been both satisfying and revealing, bringing my level of expression to a new level. 

I  hope you will watch this video with an open heart and an open mind. Perhaps by embracing both our intuition and our logic we can engage with our art making in a deeper way.

Sometimes the most striking portraits are not about color or polish but about expression, line work, contrast and emotion. Sometimes using less materials equals MORE impact!

Join me for this mini-portrait class where we will explore some of my favorite tools, tricks and tips for creating evocative, expressive portraits.
