With spring break and summer coming up, I wanted to offer a recording of my dot to dot method that you can access whenever and wherever you need it! This tutorial is 16 minutes long and shows how I create my abstract designs using a simple dot to dot method. Students can use a variety of materials and this technique can be adapted for beginners to advanced.
Instruction for artist students of all ages and abilities
My unique techniques of paper collage narratives in combination with transparent paint is something I created in my studio over 15 years ago and I've never looked back. I love working in this mixed media approach with it's endless possibilities of expression and constant challenge. I teach in person and virtual workshops that teach my process. Whether you are a beginner and are curious or are an advanced art student, you will gain a new perspective on mixed media as a form of personal expression, tips and tricks for compelling compositions, and tried and true painting methods that will make your landscapes come alive.

the business of art
If you are an artist who is also running a business, I've got in-person and virtual workshops for that too! I've been running on my own art business for 12 years and each year, I'm growing and learning. In 2021, I went from barely squeaking by with a profit to bringing in quadruple the amount I had done previously. And I'm not done growing yet! Making your art for a living is absolutely possible and I have put together several workshops that address some of the major hurdles artists face: marketing, time management, talking about their art, understanding their art, offering commissions, and feelings of lingering resentment toward having to run a business AND make art.
