An Artful Advent

Captivate the artist within this Holiday Season. Create an altered book full of windows, pockets, hidden messages and so much more. Make pages of collage, painting and creative layers filled with art that is personalized and meaningful. Discover the peace and solace the daily pages offer letting you escape the hectic activities if only for a few stolen moments.


Wanderlust 2020 Teacher

I am thrilled and honored to be one of the 27 Wanderlust teachers for 2020. This year long art course inspires creativity in mixed media and art journaling for 52 weeks straight. That's a lot of art for such a great price! Sign up today and create with me in February 

About my February Field Notes Lesson:
"Discover the hidden treasures of Mother Nature. As we take a closer look at our natural suroundings, just imagaine what we can find. Study and drawing skills will allow us to focus on the details while creating a page of found objects in our sketchbook. I'll share trompe l'oeil (fool the eye) secrets that will bring your painted items to life popping them right off the page "
