ahhhh!! I’m literally dancing, shouting from rooftops, and running around like a maniac because I’m so freaking excited….it’s here you guys. it’s finally here. allow me to introduce you to my new online art journal class “Creatures”…
this class has literally been years in the making, and I’m so thrilled to finally get it out there and share it with all of you. I’ve created a page of my website that is fully dedicated to the “CREATURES” class. this page features what’s included in the class, the price, where to buy, and even some FAQ’s. head on over here to get all of the details.
***CREATURES WILL BE LIVE FOR PURCHASE MONDAY, MARCH 21ST @ 8:00AM PST***
I want to thank all of you for being so patient as I’ve been putting this course together. I have worked really hard to create a class that is exciting, creative, fun, and appropriate for all levels. “Creatures” embraces not only my teaching style, but who I am as an artist – so, I really do feel like I’m sharing a bit of me with all of you…
join me on this kick-ass creative adventure…and I hope to be seeing you in class!
it’s not very often that I share photos from workshops, but these were just too good not to! this class of ten students was put together by nancy walter and hosted in deanna h.’s beautiful home in the san diego area. deanna is also the talented photog that took these photos! it was a wonderful day of art making and a solid group of students. both experienced and non-experienced journalers dove right into the prompts I set forth and walked away with some really exciting pages…
honestly, it’s student groups like these that make me truly excited to teach art…thank-you all who attended for such a kick ass day!

I am SO SO SO excited to finally make this major announcement!
this spring 2015, I will be teaching a class as part of the 21 Secrets Art Journaling Workshop! 21 Secrets (founded by Dirty Footprints Studio), is a workshop constructed by 21 different artists and is accessed entirely online. here’s a little bit about the course I’ll be teaching:
Fragments & Mysteries
Throw your plan out the window, and lose the ‘big picture’ you’ve been consistently mapping and overworking in your journal pages. Fragments and Mysteries is about embracing the idea of art making with zero constraints. As an artist, I believe that in stepping away from pre-existing plans, true and personal meanings will emerge. Deep within layered materials, found objects and imagery, your subconscious will reveal its own theme. In this workshop, I will guide you step by step. These small steps, small phases, and fragments will ultimately piece together a meaning lying within you. A meaning which until this point, had only been a mystery…
the exciting part of this workshop, is that you have the ability to experience 21 different classes and teachers all in one place, and all focusing on art journaling. it’s also entirely online, so you have instant access to videos and downloadable material! I will be teaching alongside a great group of artists (and you can find the full list of artists here).
