Book Release & Mini Workshop at Malaprops Bookstore August 13th!

Join me in downtown Asheville at Malaprops bookstore at 3 pm on August 13th as I unveil my new book, Storytelling Art Studio & lead a mini workshop in the café!  As many of you know, I was an English teacher before becoming a full-time artist, and in this book I show you how to use elements of creative writing & fiction to add deep meaning to your mixed media art projects. In the book, I share ways to convey character, setting, mood, theme, conflict, symbolism --  and even plot -- in visual art. On Sunday the 13th, I'll lead you through a fun, empowering mini-workshop where we alter a book page from a faerie tale! Everyone will receive a surprise goodie bag to create their mini masterpiece, and I will be signing copies of my book!

You can RSVP and learn more HERE.



NEW! Join me in NY this November for a Special WORKSHOP!

Come to New York & Create With Me!!!

Get ready for a weekend of pure, joyous mixed-media exploration as I lead you through the process of manifesting your own unique 25- card oracle deck. In our time together, you will reconnect with the expressive, intuitive self and the magic you carry within. We will use paint, color, chance, synchronicity, storytelling, and the wisdom of ancient divination to guide our journey. 

Our gathering of creative energy will be a safe space for artists of all abilities. You will create an original deck based on your own level of experience and infused with your artistic voice. 

 I will share many tips to create your cards including:

  • Loosening up with chance
  • Conquering the blank canvas
  • Finding a focal image
  • Using color for expression, balance and composition
  • Working with collage, image transfer & other mixed media techniques
  • Using symbols and storytelling
  • Hand-lettering & bordering
  • Inviting synchronicity

*PLUS bonus techniques for creating your own interpretation booklet & bold, abstract collage papers! AND tips on how to get your deck published!
