making up words…


The meaning of life is to find your Gift.  The purpose of life is to give it away.
Pablo Picasso

I remember a workshop I took about 10 years ago taught by Zana Clark of Stamp Zia who asked “What kind of artist are you?”  She said there were three types and asked us to raise our hands when we fit the type: the artist who amasses a ton of supplies and never finds time to use them, the artist who hates everything she does and the artist who loves everything she does and everything that everybody else does too… When she got to the last type, I was the only one in the room who raised her hand.

My job is to help people find joy in the process and stop worrying so hard about the end product. Making art takes practice — just like anything else. It may as well be fun!  I am here to help you get past the perfectionism and on to the joy of making art.  I figure that makes me an enthusiastician (yes, I made it up).

I’ve got a few new workshops scheduled this fall… I hope you will join me.
