What Is This Site About?

I love to make art, especially art journaling. I often have lots of thinkie thoughts around being blocked, what makes you an artist, how can I keep creating etc, and sharing those thoughts with the world is what underpins this website. My site is a mix of inspirational articles, content to help you get past your blocks, photos of completed and in-progress artwork, tutorials, techniques & videos. I also like teaching art so you will find links here to classes I teach and my own art course website.

I invite you to pick & choose what helps you the most!

The first step most people take is to download my free Art & Inspiration guide. It will help you to understand & clear your creative blocks, get started with a simple supply list & give you some ideas to get you on your way making art!
