If there’s one thing I know, it’s that art + life are intrinsically bound together. Each acting as a catalyst to the other, and the inspiration that is boundless between them creates a ripple effect that affects your entire world.
I know this because I’ve lived it! When I made the leap into cultivating a creative practice in order to heal a few broken pieces I was carrying around, my life changed. Slowly but surely I began to observe a beautiful rhythm: what freedoms I allowed into my art rippled into my life. What transformations I reached for in life spilled into my art. Intentionally cultivating this dynamic brought so much awareness, expansion, and growth to both aspects of my life, until they became one and the same.
So, my artistic process and my personal journey of transformation are intricately woven together in a sumptuous tapestry of materials, techniques, and life wisdom. In Metamorph ::: Mixed Media Art School, I am giving all of the tools, tricks, and techniques to you.
The practical matters

Classroom will be open and all videos will be available through December 31, 2018, though will be self-guided after August 1, 2017. Each month a new section will be unlocked in the online classroom.

There will be a minimum of 4 video lessons per month, with plenty of demonstrations and inspiring extras to light your creative fire.
My online workshops will be run in the same spirit as my in-person workshops: many wonderful people will convene and create in a cooperative, safe, and encouraging environment. You will matter tremendously to all of us, and your artistic and personal process will be supported wholeheartedly.
