First let me tell you a bit more about Ever After in case you haven’t heard about it yet! “Ever After” is a mixed media art & style development course with a fairytale theme hosted by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts. Tam is joined by 15 popular mixed media art teachers who will all share beautiful fairy-tale & myth inspired lessons with you AND they will also divulge all their hints and tips on how they developed their own style and how YOU TOO can find your own unique voice as an artist! 🙂 Yay!
You can find out all the dates (and sign up with the Early Bird price) by clicking HERE 
My chosen fairy tale is “Mother Nature, the myth of Gaia

 

My lesson will be inspired by this fairy tale, I have some fabulous ideas cooking! I’ve not fully developed my class idea yet, but I’m excited to be sharing this theme with you, as I have a deep love for nature and many of my paintings reflect this. I also adore using watercolor and mixed media , and can’t wait till we can explore and discover this medium together, and how it can make your painting magical and unique. You can see an example in some of my paintings, and how I like to “tell a  visual story” as well.

  9. My favorite fairytale is Cinderella – but the Ever After movie version and not the Disney version! Strong, handles challenges, takes advantage of opportunities. Best of all, when she could truly take revenge, she has the resolve to still hold the stepmother accountable bit she is merciful. 😊
