I love teaching both in person and online, and it thrills me to know I've taught more than 7,000 people over the years!

All About ATCs

This online workshop covers a wide variety of mixed media art techniques, all focused on the unique substrates of Artist Trading Cards and Artist Trading Coins. Popularly known as ATCs, these surfaces are fantastic for trying out new techniques!  We work specifically on building layers with color, stamps, and stencils. Learn fun ways to emboss and add dimension to your projects as well.

Mixed Media Art 101

Mixed Media can be overwhelming. In this class we'll take the guesswork out of how to use the many different mixed media products on the market today including paint, ink, gesso, pastes, powders, and mediums.

Learn when to use matte medium vs. heavy body gel medium, why you might choose fluid acrylic paints instead of heavy body paints, and which papers work best with different products.


If you want to learn how to self-host your own classes and workshops locally, nationally, or online -- or get hired to teach at established venues such as stores, conferences, and retreats -- this is the class for you.  I've taught in all of these venues as well as online for many years, and I am happy to share the tips and tricks of the trade. I cover everything from creating your class idea to pitching it, promoting it, and teaching it. Logistics, contracts, and payment are all included.
