Imagine… I  stand on a stage before you, the huge curtains behind me are luminous. I  present the latest in virtual carousel rides:  My New Portfolio Preview Page, a dazzling changing frame of a wide variety of  my art work.

Artists Retreat

Posted by:

Artist RetreatThe artists retreat: A place created first in the mind, for it to be activated in any space, even in the most ideal creative spaces. It suggests an honesty with self, an agreement to withdraw from expectations in order to discover something new creatively. A retreat can mean putting value on quietly listening, becoming aware of what surfaces.

I am interested in working with individuals who, whether local or visiting the area, may ...

Where expression is free to grow

Posted by:

We are all so different, yet so much the same in ways that really matter. We want to express ourselves.

We need to discover our most authentic self. Perhaps a self that was never discarded, for all of the various reasons that this can happen. This usually happens at the hands of those who have lost their own childhood. As a home school mother  I wanted to provide an environment that nurtured what my children were born with, natural creativity, endless ...

Teaching the teacher

Posted by:

Hello artists and art lovers,

I’d like to tell you about something I learned from one of my youngest students. She is just seven. She taught me that when you don’t know you can’t do something, you might just be able to do it very well.

It was our first class together. From what her mother brought of her art I could see a definite confidence in her line. She had a sure hand, even when she wasn’t sure how to draw ...

How To Draw A Character

Posted by:

Hello fellow artists,

I’d like to share my technique for creating a hand-colored drawing of a character for a client. I like to rough out the image with several first sketches. I prefer a soft lead pencil because of the fluidity in the line. I begin with my envisioned idea, then use basic shapes to rough out the proportions on the paper.

Many artists get themselves discouraged by starting in on the detail too soon. Try to enjoy the process, after all that’s ...
