I'm teaching at A Work of Heart in San Jose!


I'm excited to announce that I will be teaching TWO full-day workshops at A Work of Heart studio in San Jose, California on April 28 and 30!  Please join in on the fun!  Register early for the early-bird discount (price goes up April 14!)

We will be getting messy and working all day in our art journals.  In the Abstract Backgrounds class, I'll show you all my favorite techniques and materials as we create our own unique collage paper and build layer after gorgeous layer!  These can be left alone as abstract works of art or used as backgrounds for our favorite collage image, phrase, or even our "word of the year."  I'll show you how to take pages that aren't working, or you feel "stuck" on and together we will  conquer  the fear of the blank page!  Find out more at: A Work of Heart Studio!

In Luscious Layered Portraits, I'll show you how I build up amazing, complex and beautiful backgrounds that we will use as the backdrop and starting point for our lovely portraits.  We will play with different layers of opacity and transparency as we hide and reveal layers underneath and let some layers "peek through" our faces to create truly soulful portraits!  No drawing experience necessary!  I break it down into very simple shapes, easy steps, and we finish by adding a touch of shading to create depth.  This is one of my most favorite art projects right now!  I can't wait to share it with you!
