Hey There!

Thank you for your interest in FEARLESS® Painting. Basically this is what I call my painting practice, but really its more of a way of life.

As a teacher I combine my 25+ years experience as a professional artist + art educator with my love and interest in the mystical world of art and creativity.  I’m passionate about visual language, intuitive narratives, and embracing a holistic approach to the creative process.

In my FEARLESS® Painting workshops and retreats you will..

Be invited to embody the truth of who you are as an artist and gain a solid understanding of the mystical and practical mechanics of your unique creative process. Expect to be challenged as well as celebrated.

Never receive step-by-step instructions to follow. In other words, your painting will NOT look like mine or anyone else. I saturate each workshop and retreat with heart opening, insightful discussions on embodying the creative process and crafting your life as an artist combined with fun, mindful instruction that will inspire, challenge, and get you painting deeper than ever before and loving the brushmarks that are uniquely 100%  yours!

Find yourself immersed in a supportive, warm environment to embody your creative process and express yourself honestly! You’ll be heard, seen, and loved for exactly who you are and how you’re showing up! All skill levels and backgrounds are welcomed. The only requirement is a true, sincere desire to create.

My workshops and retreats are for artists who are…

  • called to embrace creativity as a way of life — even the messy parts.
  • yearning to express their own unique artistic style and voice.
  • curious about the deeper currents of creativity.
  • seeking a community of heart guided artists.
  • ready — I mean really ready, to create wildly.

Sound like you?

Great! Below are some ways we can paint together…and be sure to CLICK HERE to take a peek at some of my past workshops and retreats.

Painting The Feminine

ONLINE WORKSHOP  |  FOUR WEEKS  |  STARTS SEPTEMBER 17TH

In Painting The Feminine we explore the mystical and practical worlds of painting by unveiling stories of Feminine Wisdom through art journaling, painting on canvas, and cultivating a daily art practice. It doesn’t matter what your background or skill level is — Painting The Feminine will meet you exactly where you are on your Artist journey and guide you deeper.  This Fall will be the last time I teach Painting The Feminine.  Come join us!

MOODY

ONLINE WORKSHOP  |  SELF PACED

I like to think that my moodiness is just part of my charm. If others would agree or not is another story. But when it comes to making art, being moody always works in my favor.

In my 21 SECRETS Tools & Techniques workshop MOODY we will explore and use charcoal, graphite, a limited palette, and a handy-dandy kneaded eraser to embrace our dark moods as well as expose our light.

Then, when the mood hits us, we’ll express them both exquisitely in our art journal.

MOODY is in 21 SECRETS Tools & Techniques out now!

BOLD

ONLINE WORKSHOP  |  SELF PACED

Ever get to that point in a painting where you’re absolutely terrified of messing things up but you know it’s still not time to quit yet?

(Yeah, me too!)

These are the moments when your creativity is at its ripest.

In BOLD we’re going to practice taking creative risks, use color in its rawest form, and discover new ways of expressing ourselves bravely, colorfully, and most of all BOLD!

BOLD is in 21 SECRETS Color, Color, Color! out now!
