I believe that we all have a story to tell and everywhere we go we leave evidence of this and it through my pieces of art, that I share my stories. I love working with old, tattered, vintage and recycled items and incorporate them into my pieces of art and give them a new breathe of life.

About this Course

Spring is a special season for me.  It's about renewal, rebirth of new things on the horizon, but most of all, its about breathing in that breath of fresh air.  Outside my studio doors, I have the blessing of being able to hear the birds chirping, babies birds crying out for their food and mama, seeing and smelling in the fragrances of my flower gardens and watching nature take place.  So what better time than now, to create a piece of art, that reflects this to me. 

In this class, I will show you how to take different elements and bring them together, to create a powerful piece of art.  I will walk you through the steps of incorporating; wire, wood, papers, canvas, paints, clay, wax and objects that hold special meaning and have it speak it's message of Spring and what that means to you.

I love creating projects, that not only can be done by you, but one that this  is fun, refreshing and one that can be done with children and adults of all ages.  What fun it would be, to take your kids or love ones on a nature walk and find elements that you could incorporate into your piece and being able to capturing those memories, into a piece of art that will be cherished for years to come.
