I want to celebrate you!
As I approach the 10-year anniversary of Fearless Abstract Painting (January 1, 2018) I can't think of a better gift than to showcase the work of my Fearless Abstract Painting students in an online gallery on my website.
To be featured, simply email a .jpeg image of your painting & the title to firstname.lastname@example.org or #myfearlessabstractpainting on Instagram.
One morning, while I was getting ready to teach one of my painting workshops, my 6-year old niece asked me where I was going. "I am going to teach people how to paint!" I answered with excitement. She looked up at me with a puzzled expression and said: "You mean, they forgot?"
I believe we were all born artists. Some of us just need help remembering.

This is my life! This morning I swam with turtles. Then I taught a Fearless Abstract Painting Workshop to an incredible group of artists. This was the first time I taught at Akamai Art Supply, my classroom had such an expansive view of the ocean, and I had dripping wet hair while teaching. A heartfelt Thank You to everyone who came together to make this amazing experience a reality.
When you can't decide what fills your heart with more joy: getting your story printed in the paper, or the fact that your life partner had his first published photograph. I'm leaning towards the latter. A heartfelt "Thank You" to the Hawaii Tribune Herald, the Volcano Art Center and last, but certainly not least, to my husband Tyson.

Student Question: I took a course of yours years ago in Penticton, BC. I hope you'll come back again one day soon. What brands of paint do you use? I'm using Stevenson but looking to switch. Suggestions? I appreciate your expertise and advice.
My greatest satisfaction comes from witnessing the return of joy and movement into my student's creative process. It's as if they become children again: curious, uninhibited, present in their bodies, and unburdened by the heaviness of expectation. Experience the transformation. Register Now
