Expressive Portraits Live Workshop at Jeanne Oliver Studio July 13-14 2018

I have been teaching online classes on Jeanne Oliver's site for several years now. It is always a pleasure and so much fun to plan and talk with Jeanne. I took a live class with her at Donna Downey's studios last year and we instantly bonded with eath other, but I knew that would be the case from prior online communication. It is so important to me to have that personal connection with the people I work with. It enables me to do the best job I can do so it is with sincere intent and joy that I will make this workshop amazing for everyone involved!

Teaching in Orvieto, Italy Fall 2018

I taught in Orvieto, Italy in the fall of 2016. This was my first trip to Italy. I fell in love immediately but I always knew I would! We flew into Rome and spent a couple of days before traveling to Orvieto. After unpacking we took a walk to the nearby piazzo where I had my first Italian street musician experience.This site and sound was definitely meant for me!  I know this is quite common place for Italians but for me it brought me to tears. It was just one of those magical moments I will always remember.....always!

I haven't traveled since my trip to Italy in the Fall so I have had a good chunk of uninterrupted studio time

I haven't traveled since my trip to Italy in the Fall so I have had a good chunk of uninterrupted studio time. So important to slow down and get focused. I am very disciplined when it comes to my studio time. It is a 9-5 job for me. When I have "dial it in days" I pivot and will work on promotions, organizing my stuff, get on the web for inspiration but I stay in my studio!
