University Thrive! Join me for Magazines to Masterpiece

Super exciting news wehoooooooo! Community Thrive has announced their all new flourish 201 courses, a part of University Thrive or U Thrive ;)

I am one of three artists who will be offering courses this trimester beginning June 1st! OMGosh!

Wondering what I am offering? 
Join me for:
These are just a few examples of some of the work I have created using magazines not just as a collage medium but as a way to compose and 'draw' my composition.

This class will take you through creating two different paintings using magazines in two distinctly different ways. You will be learning different techniques to alter magazine pages and using them to create new and unique artwork. No drawing skills required, remember art does not mean accurate, your art is a reflection of you and how you view the world. You will also learn some basics about composing, how to draw attention to your centre of interest and create depth in your work.
Come join me in this fun, information packed collage class that will have you turning everyday magazine pages into a masterpiece!

All ready to sign up for Magazines to Masterpiece?


In case you did not know already, Community Thrive is a free community and costs nothing to join. You can share your artwork with friends in the community and there are several free classes, art swaps and challenges available. There is also paid course content and Flourish 201 is one of the newest additions to that component of Community Thrive.


Last but not least not only am I teaching a 201 course, I am also mentoring in Flourish Beyond!

Have you ever wanted to be mentored by an artist? 
Flourish Beyond is a mentorship program where you will get one on one mentoring from me. I will be there for you, to guide you, to answer any questions you have related to technique, supplies, materials, where to save the $ and when to spend it, your process and beyond. I want you to grow in confidence and ability.  With 25+ years of experience as an artist and 8 of them working as a professional artist, I can offer constructive critiques in a nurturing environment to help your creative talents soar to new heights!

In order to register for mentorship you already have to be registered for my Flourish 201 course. If you are ready to sign up for mentorship click here now!


Seating is EXTREMELY LIMITED in the mentorship class. 
Hope to see you there!

Art Collaboration with Sandy Leamon-Derryberry

I was so excited to be able to participate in an art collaboration with Sandy Derryberry! Mostly because I have been dying to have one of her paintings hanging on my wall, I just adore her quirky and whimsical little girls. I will have a step one video coming soon, showing how I started my canvas as well as a few in progress and finished shots of the painting Sandy made for me. 

For now, here is how I finished the canvas Sandy sent to me.



Hope you enjoy. <3 p="">
