A New fun class coming soon!


Explore, Play and Redefine 

A New Art Workshop! 

Art, Art, Art and those Yummy colors we so love. Let’s play and redefine more colors we normally do not explore with, shall we! Let’s welcome and embrace them!

This is what this class is all about, exploring fresh exciting colors.  Do you ever wonder what it would feel like to experience new colors and dare to explore them with a whole new perspective? Open your heart and your mind.

This class I will have you invite them into your palette and be wild and completely bold. New Colors express what we feel and what we hide, our passions, our emotions and including our memories. It helps us to channel these emotions into paper. Let’s go beyond and explore that side deeper and dare to be wild and free ourselves. Be open to your colorful new experience in your creative expression. Learn to explore, to play, to smudge, to drip and spill your soul. Allow your color puddles to emphasize your fun messes which means letting a huge part of yourself go. Be naked! Let freedom be your guide. Let those colors seduce you with something new, different fun, fresh and exciting.

Do whatever your colorful heart desires and worry less about being perfect. It will encourage you to develop methods all on your own by allowing yourself to be daring and spontaneous. And see that soon a whole new side of your creativity will give you a whole new outlook in the way you approach your art.

Cost for the class is $55 dollars

Colorful sicky me needs some chamomile tea!


The beautiful colors around me

The paper is gesso graphite painted in acrylic 9 x12
will be on Etsy for Sale

I haven't had much to say these days been sick but still had some energy to paint.
Been having some trouble sleeping. Don't you just hate that? The Tossing the turning the getting up in the middle of the night. I been tired but never tired when it comes to painting. Painting keeps me going and heals me. I know when my hands need to relax, I read a good book. The book I'm reading now - The Night Circus - A Novel by Erin Morgenstern. She is wonderful! It's a very inspiring book. I would love to finally finish my book but it's in my book shelve collecting dust for the time being. I'm blocked. Let me rephrase that, the story is done but my illustration are not. I have 15 illustrations left to do and I'm stuck, it's so frustrating! But I will get around to it soon! To be honest I'm just afraid, yep afraid about my book. It would be my first! But hey I guess that's normal to be scared but I do have to snap out of it! Any who, I been painting and sculpting as well. I finished a bunny Rappit, is dry now. Now paint will be added. I tried to do several but failed and decided step back and try it later when I'm better. So I'm back to painting my beautiful pieces. Painting another new piece which I love love! I will be posting soon. Enjoy!

My whimsy piece to cheer your day with fun and inspiration!


My Cat is on the roof!

The paper is gesso first, then image is penciled in with graphite HB and painted in acrylic. When paint is dry, it is then sanded giving it that scratchy faded technique affect which I love.

This piece will be mounted to give the piece a white border around image.

This piece will look poetically beautiful in a white frame or simple wood frame.
