Updates from the Studio

It has been a while since I posted a studio update and today was the first day (in the last 8 days) back in the studio- a little too long for me! After time away from creating, the build up of ideas and what I call "creative madness" begins to take over my brain- too much to do, too many ideas and often a challenge to focus my energy. So when there has been time away I like to start by warming myself up with painting BIG and EXPRESSIVE with no purpose or deadline (except to just get all the eagerness and frenzy out!) and then I find I am more focussed on tackling everything else. A good part of today was spent painting and I now feel like I can deal with "housekeeping" and the many tasks at hand!

So here we go with some updates for the new year...

I am in the midst of updating and reorganizing the vibe of my blog and finally feel like I have the time and head space to get organized with the way that I present inspiration on my site. My goal is to continue to try to have this be a place to visit where you can learn new things, find inspiration in all kinds of ways, peek into my own journey and way of doing things, I have lots of tutorials in the works, weekly posts with color, fashion, travel, even food inspiration and lots MORE planned!!

All kinds of new work is coming soon and I am in the midst of working on a little side project- opening a second Etsy shop dedicated to my EVER GROWING passion- photography!

All of my online classes- Graffiti Chic, Whimsical Women, Recycling Remix, Adventurous Accessories, Haute Holidays, Canvas Collage and Hand Carved Stamps are available for registration at any time time. And the best now have unlimited access to take the class- no deadlines, no rush to create!

Graffiti Chic Part II starts on Januaray 25th and is now available for registration! I have big plans for this class- we are going bigger, messier and more creative with paint, lettering, layering and drawing!

Stay tuned for more classes and new online learning opportunities also coming soon!!

I am working on my live teaching schedule and hope to have some dates and events to share very soon!
