The cat is out of the bag!

So it is now official, and the news is finally out! I am SO excited to announce my upcoming mixed media online workshop, hosted by the amazing and talented artist Ivy Newport!

This is such an honor for me, as I’ve had the desire to make this workshop since a while now, and when Ivy asked me if I was interested in working together I was thrilled! I cannot thank her enough for believing in me and giving me this opportunity! 🙂

The reason we decided on the title “Into the myst – discovering the magic within” is because this workshop for me is a lot more than just teaching the techniques I use.

This workshop is like showing a little piece of me, and bringing to light the way I have come to paint intuitively. In this workshop I will reveal to you my secrets on how I get my inspiration, and how you can do the same, discovering the magic we all have inside of us. The magic that resides all around us, in our imagination, and in our dreams. I will show you how I invite the magic into my home, to my art room, and onto my canvas, creating atmosphere and intention.

 

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”  Albert Einstein 

 

In this online course I will be showing you how I like to use my art supplies. For example, how to create subtle glows and glazes with watercolor or acrylics, how to tell your on story using symbols and imagery that resonate with you, how to create fantasy scenes with watercolor on different substrates, how to create skin tones and glazes with acrylics, and how to make interesting line work and flowing hair with volume using ink pens, how to create a whole fantasy scene with the illusion of movement and how it can tell the viewer it’s own story, and much more!

So if you are as excited as I am to start this journey, then join me as we enter into the magical myst of our imagination! I will be showing more as we go along to inspire you and keep you updated!

I hope to see you there, and since there will be limited spots available you can get on the waitlist here:

And just for fun here is sneak preview of the first project, which will be all about discovering our spirit animals, and by painting them, asking them to help us release our imagination and showing our intent.

And here is a sneak peek of the first layers of the second project, where we will start creating a magical scene with watercolors and acrylic portrait using our intuition and imagination, and creating the ‘glowing’ effect I am so fond of.

Some examples of my acrylic portraits and the glow effect are these paintings, we will be creating something similar, but even MORE interesting….

And in the mean time, as I send some fairy dust your way, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes 🙂

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” – Howard Thurman

    1. Hi Julie, it makes me so happy to hear that! My wish for this class is to help others discover their own expression, using inspiration from the things you love and telling your own story through your art.. Thanks again for your kind words of encouragement! 🙂
