good morning, and happy friday! it’s finally here…my latest online class SPIRITS is now live and available for purchase! hop on over to my Etsy shop to snag a seat in class. a few other quick things to note:
+ SPIRITS is available at a discounted rate for this week only! starting may 6th, the class will return to its regular price.
+ Class bundles that contain SPIRITS will also reflect that early bird rate, again – for this week only! so take advantage of that early bird price for extra savings when you purchase bundles.
+ Be one of the first 20 students to enroll in SPIRITS and you’ll snag one of these! – UPDATE: THIS IS NOW SOLD OUT
alright, so there you have it. whew, I can’t believe it’s actually launch day and I’m putting this class out into the world. as I’ve mentioned before – Spirits has been a real labor of love (and my BIGGEST CLASS YET) – so I’m beyond happy right now to put it out there for all of you…
I’ll see you in class…xo
***UPDATE: wow you guys! the ‘spirit pack’ giveaway was gone in under 3 minutes! thank-you so much to those who set alarms, were up early (or in a weird time zone), and have purchased the class…your support means so much!! xo***
I just wanted to pop by here to remind you that my new online class SPIRITS arrives tomorrow morning in my Etsy shop at 8:00am pst! as I mentioned in the announcement post, I’ve got that ‘spirit pack’ giveaway for the first 20 students who enroll in the class…
The first 20 students to enroll in the Spirits class will receive a free ‘Spirit pack’ via snail mail. This includes a hand painted trading card from the artist (featuring a ‘spirit’), a die-cut sticker, fun packing tape bits designed by Roxanne, and a mini art print! (while supplies last, limited to the first 20 students only)
with the launch of SPIRITS, there will also be more online class bundle options available. these new bundle combos will also reflect that lower early bird rate for Spirits! basically, buy a bundle this week during the launch of Spirits to save more moolah and snag another one of my classes (like Creatures or Lyrical, or both!).
I’m so absolutely thrilled about this new class, and cannot wait to share it with you all. hopefully I’ll be ‘seeing you’ in class tomorrow!
happy monday! I just wanted to let you know that if you’re in so cal, I’ll be teaching two in-person workshops this weekend in the south bay. these classes are being held at a private residence located in el segundo this saturday & sunday. here’s a look at the line up:
saturday, march 25th – 10am-4pm Art journaling meets illustration in this mixed media workshop “Cacti”. This class takes you through the process of creating a two-page art journal spread that uses succulents and cacti as a visual focal point. Through guided step-by-step instruction, you will build up a mixed media foundation layer using ephemera and acrylic paint. With a foundation layer complete, the class then further explores: planning a composition, the use of a split-complimentary color palette, observational drawing, and unique illustration techniques using both acrylic paint, ink, and/or watercolor.
“MINI ART JOURNALS”
sunday, march 26th – 10am-3pm This art journaling class takes you through the process of creating a miniature, two-inch, mixed media art journal. Through step-by-step instruction, we will begin by binding and constructing our mini journals by hand. Once our mini journals are assembled, the class will then take you through a variety of individual techniques, prompts, and illustrations to apply within each 2-page spread! At the completion of the class you’ll have a fully altered mini journal featuring eight different miniature art spreads…
space is limited, but there’s still a few open seats! I would love for you to join me. shoot me an email to scope out the supply list and get more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
+ not local or cannot attend in person? join me online! I’ve got two online classes that you can join at any time and do at your own pace: ‘Creatures‘ & ‘Lyrical‘. and yes, the rumors are true…I have a new one in the works 😉 stay tuned!
hey guys! I just wanted to pop onto the blog before the weekend kicks off to not only remind you that my new online class “Lyrical” launches MONDAY…but to also share the promo I’ll be doing for the first 20 people who purchase the class…
the first 20 students to enroll in LYRICAL will receive one hand-altered, hand-painted postcard (from my new 2016 postcard set) in the mail! as seen in the photos of this post and sticking to the theme of the class – I’m including handwritten song lyrics on each card. recipients can either customize their lyrics or allow me to choose it for you…
what’s cool about these postcards is that you can use it as ephemera, or hang it up in your work space for a little inspiration. these went insanely fast when my other class “Creatures” launched (literally, within 6 minutes) – so definitely set those alarms! see you monday…xo
***LYRICAL launches this MONDAY, AUGUST 1st @ 8:00AM PST // #bybunlyrical***
+ + UPDATE: these altered postcards are now SOLD OUT! + +
I’m absolutely thrilled to finally share with you the trailer and details for my new online art journal class LYRICAL!
I don’t think I’ve ever been THIS STOKED to put an online class out there. this particular class is very personal for me – as it truly mirrors my current art making process and style. I was so excited about designing this class in fact, that it ended up being the biggest online class I’ve ever created!
***LYRICAL WILL BE LIVE FOR PURCHASE THIS MONDAY, AUGUST 1ST @ 8:00AM PST***
I’ve made a page on my website that is fully dedicated to the “LYRICAL” class. this page features what’s included in the class, the price, where to buy, and even some FAQ’s. hop on over here to get all of the details.
also to note, I will be doing another giveaway for the first 20 students who sign up for the class on August 1st. I’ll be sharing more details and sample photos of that item soon (*wink!).
so mark your calendars, and I look forward to you seeing you in class!
MINI ART JOURNAL WORKSHOP
Saturday, July 9th, 12pm-4pm
This art journaling class takes you through the process of creating a miniature, two-inch, mixed media art journal. Through step-by-step instruction, we will begin by binding and constructing our mini journals by hand. Once our mini journals are assembled, the class will then take you through a variety of individual techniques, prompts, and illustrations to apply within each 2-page spread!

“FANTASTICAL FAUNA” // ART JOURNALING WORKSHOP
Saturday, August 6th, 10am-4pm (with one-hour lunch break)
This art journal class takes you through the process of creating a two-page journal spread that includes an illustrated animal. What makes these animals unique however, is that they are in a state of transparency: complete with bones, organs, and unique illustrative details. Through guided step-by-step instruction, we will build up an initial background layer using a variety of mixed media techniques. With our background layer complete, you will then learn how to plan, draw, and fully illustrate your own fantastical fauna. Register on the PVAC website!
+ again, registration for both of these workshops is now open! hop on over to the palos verdes art center website to snag your seat. I hope to see you at one (or both) of these classes! xo
