Mindy Lacefield

Hi! My name is Mindy and I am inspired and paint from the nostalgia of my childhood. Channeling my inner 8 year old. Painting my dreams into reality. I teach. I learn. I play. I make mistakes. I celebrate those mistakes because they become happy, magical moments from the Divine.

About this course

Playing with ink is super helpful at times to really restrict yourself and focus on light and shadows. Painting with only light and dark will exercise a creative muscle in you that is super important in the creative process. We will also experiment on paper like Yupo that reveals some really exciting attributes. I want to share my ink and Yupo discoveries with you as well as working in a hobonichi planner.
