Artsy News and Upcoming Events!


Hello My Friends!

I hope your summer is going well!   I just returned from a whirlwind 4 weeks of travel for work and vacation, crisscrossing from North Carolina to Dallas, Texas;  Melbourne, Florida, up to Western NY, back to North Carolina and then ending up in Williamsburg, Va for s teaching, workshops, visiting family and friends, along with some fun in the sun, water parks  and amusement park with my boys     It's definitely been fun in the sun along with tons of artsy goodness, meeting several of you for the first time along with reconnecting with many of you after a few years have passed. It's amazing how small the world is and how our paths cross many times in this wonderful and wild journey of life.

 It's definitely been a great summer of adventure including  tons of artsy goodness, meeting several of you for the first time along with reconnecting with many of you after a few years have passed. It's amazing how small the world is and how our paths cross many times in this wonderful and wild journey of life.

Today I wanted to share with you some of the exciting new events coming up that I'd love for you to join in on (or share if you wouldn't mind!!), as well as a great special going on for several of my online classes!

First up:   Last minute Lucy's....I'll be heading to the beautiful Whidbey Island (off the coast of Washington State) for a 2 day Jam Packed and Abstract workshop, July 25-26.    We have JUST a couple of spaces remaining, if you are interested!  Participants will get to experiment with several of the exercises featured in my upcoming book, "Abstracts in Acrylic and Ink"  due out at the end of 2016!

For more information on the workshop at the Pacific Northwest School of Art, click HERE.

Next on the list of big events coming up is my newest class offering, Zen Painting. I'll be heading back to Missouri to be hosted by Kristen Powers of Rubbermoon Studios for a Zen Painting and Abstract weekend, September 30th-October 2nd.  This weekend retreat is almost fully all inclusive, your lodging, food, classes and supplies are included!  We do have a second option if you'd rather no have it inclusive but the savings you will experience (and less worry) by letting us take care of everything is huge!     Check out our facebook event to find out more info!  We are over half way sold out already so don't delay, this is another one of those experiences that you won't ant to miss!

Big NEWS-In case you haven't heard, we are changing locations for our fall ReMe retreat to the Sandhills of North Carolina.  With an easy drive from several major cities, and about an hour commute from the RDU airport, we think you will find this option an extraordinary opportunity to be a part that is something more than just another art retreat.  


ReMe-The Sandhills will include most meals, all events, all your classes, supplies and many many extras.   Lodging is offered to our ReMe guests for a discounted price at one of our local hotels who is partnering up with ReMe for this event.   Check in is Wednesday, October 19th mid afternoon and the fun will begin that evening, running through Sunday, October 23rd.     For more information, registration and tons of pictures of past ReMe retreats, Please click HERE

More class fun coming up:

August 6th-  Funky Little Fish at Jerry's Artarama in Raleigh.

August 27th-Dirty Flirty Birds at Creative Studios in Vass, NC

Stay tuned for a few more classes coming up that will be announced soon!!

For those of you who are unable to travel to an in person workshop--no fear!  We have a special going on over at Creative Workshops:  

 30% off  all my online work shop and tutorials offered over there!

These "Christmas in July" prices  are  the lowest they will be all year, please join in on the fun before this super duper special goes away at the end of July!!!!

24/7 on going access to each of the classes!  

Are you ready for a new online class?????  I know I'm long overdue to produce one for you, hold on to your seats...there's going to be a BIG announcement within the next couple of weeks!  I have one more big trip coming up for teaching, after I return from that I'll be ready to begin on my new class.   

Can you guess what it'll be on?????
