And if you think you don’t have enough time to create, if you don’t know where to begin, if your inner critic keeps talking and you need someone to lift you up and shut her up, if you need inspiration or you simply want to find your own inner voice the Mixed Media Play Date is for you! Designed to teach, be a guide, inspiration and a friendly place for you to be yourself and thrive! Oh and AMAZING FUN and LIVE STREAMED MIXED MEDIA PLAY DATES!!!! AND THERE IS SO MUCH MORE!

What You Can Expect From Me

I am SO excited to be a part of this amazing initiative. While, I don’t have my lesson ready just yet, here’s what you can expect from me as a Guest Artist AND Creative Team Member…

I’m prepared to help you discover your COURAGE – courage to show up, courage to create, courage to be messy, make mistakes, and be imperfect, courage to have fun, courage to finger-paint, and courage to let your inner-child artfully PLAY!
