I recently sent out a questionnaire to see what you’d like to learn more about.
The overwhelming response was that you wanted to learn more about How To Develop Your Own Style.
When I first started painting my whimsical characters in 2009, I looked to other artists and picked out what I liked most in their paintings. I mixed those things up in my own work to begin creating unique characters.
But I still didn’t feel like I had my own style.
I was constantly evolving, trying new techniques and supplies. Every painting felt different. Sometimes I’d paint a girl, sometimes an owl, sometimes something completely from my imagination.
I figured no one would recognize my work. Then, more and more, people kept telling me they instantly knew my paintings.
To celebrate YOU continuing to develop your own style, I’m having a Serendipity 1 & 2 Sale. There’s also a new video sneak peek for you too!
Use code STYLE at checkout for 10% Off. This offer is also good when you register with the 3 Month Payment Plan.
** Many of you said you missed the sale over the weekend, so I’m extending it now through Friday 11:59PM EST.
Sale Ends Sunday, March 15 2015, 11:59PM EST.
I created my Serendipity 1 & 2 online classes to help you develop your own unique style.
So many have said that whenever they learn from another artist they feel like they’re just copying. Well, in Serendipity I share with you how I strengthen and evolve my own style and take what I learn from classes and other inspirations in my every day and incorporate them all into my own paintings in a new and unique way.
And with each demo, I also show you the mistakes I make and how I work through them, adding my inspirations into each new piece to strengthen my own style… throughout an entire year.
This painting is called Me & My Shadow. For purchase details, feel free to contact me.
Here’s a little of what students are saying…
“I had such a great time and learned so much! Your classes opened my eyes to having more fun creating. I now am not scared of starting a project and I’m having a blast creating backgrounds!” -Nina Marie
“Thank you!! For teaching me to let go…splash paint…enjoy…and discover the joy of serendipitous moments.” -Sandy Leamon Derryberry
“I can’t tell you how much I learn from you explaining what you’re doing wrong and right while you’re painting. I feel so much more confident in my own art because of this, I am forgiving myself when I can’t paint a perfect picture, make a perfect doll or quilt on the first try. I feel I have gotten my money’s worth already and we have a year to go. What a fantastic class this is. Thank you for being REAL..” -Peggy McDevitt
“So happy to have stumbled on “Serendipity”…feeling inspired, Thank you!” -Anjanette Randall
“Her classes are soul-filling! I WISH I could express how you have changed my vision and freed my mind”.–Dana Strickland

Pps. In case you missed it… I’m so excited to be sharing two owl painting projects as part of 21 Secrets: An Art Journaling Workshop.
I had so much fun chatting about my inspirations as part of the video interview series too. I especially loved it when we got to talk about all of the other jobs I had that never fit for 10 years after college while I hid all of my art supplies in the closet.
