Classes, Workshops, and Mentoring


The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spiders web.

— Pablo Picasso

I LOVED being in your class. It was such a good pace, not frantic, and each step built on the prior set of skills. The group was great, food so delicious and thoughtful, and such a calm atmosphere made for a very productive day. You are genius at Individualizing, also very generous.
— Sarah O'Hala
