a couple of updates from the studio

A while back I was contacted by Strathmore asking if I would be interested in creating doodle artwork for the packaging of some of their new products- Artist Tiles- 6x6 pads of paper made for doodling, pattern work and Zentangle style art. I've been drawing on Strathmore paper since I was a kid so this opportunity is a dream come true!

I've got two retreats coming this fall and still have a some spots left in both-

From an artistic perspective, growing up on the Oregon Coast made me a seeker of wonders.  From the old growth woods, perched above the ocean, to the thundering surf pounding against the rocky shore, to the fog hanging over sandy beaches- the landscape offers up its treasures and dynamic inspiration to the willing soul. “You, Me, and the Sea” is a small retreat designed to share the inspiration of the Oregon Coast and the opportunity to immerse yourself in sketching, painting and mixed media projects based on the natural wonders of the sea. Together we will spend 3 days in a whirlwind of creativity- drawing, painting and projects inspired by the ocean and its offerings. We will absorb the colors, materials, and treasures of the landscape and turn them into unique artwork. Visit my SHOP for more information

With a background in painting and printmaking I have discovered all kinds of simple and messy, graffiti inspired techniques that can be used in a variety of surface design projects. From painting to doodling to layering color- there are so many ways to create unique fabric with a graffiti vibe. And the best part is that alll that fabric can be used to create one of a kind accessories! In this two day class you will have the opportunity to design and create your own fabric and then transform that fabric into a unique handbag. I've been transforming my graffiti paintings into purses for the last ten years and I am excited to share my techniques and process with you!
