Unearth Gather Create

Have you ever thought  that you don't have any ideas to develop work from?

Do you find it difficult to know where or how to begin to find and develop your own style?

Do you want to expand your own personal language in mark making and expression?

Do you want to go beyond being inspired by other artists but think everything has been done before?

Do you want to develop your own unique style and create art that you are deeply connected with?

Do you have the skills to create art, but it no longer excites you?

Unearth Gather Create is for you!

It's about finding a story through your art. It's about digging deep and creating meaningful art. I don't want you to paint or draw like me - I want you to draw and paint like you!

"I have LOVED the class and will enjoy continuing my study as I slowly work my way through. You are not only a gifted artist, but a generous and kind person. I thank you for your giving spirit which shone through each and every video. I hope to someday take a class from you in person!"

 (Beth Cole)


Drawn to Expression

Have you ever let fear and that feeling of being ‘stuck’ in your art practice stop you from getting to the easel? Struggled to know how artists make choices between what to include and what to leave out? Wondered how you can say more with less? Felt a desire to loosen up and be more expressive in your art? Wanted to confront fears of imperfection and lack of motivation? Wanted to gain confidence in tapping into what makes us unique and individual and bring that to your art?

Every mark tells a story. Every line is an expression – an unearthing of you as an artist. A whisper or a shout – the language of drawing. This course is about drawing – about making a mark...and then making another...and then another.
It is about getting to the table or the easel and staying there because we don’t want to be anywhere else.
There is so much to learn, so much to experience and so much to say as a creative individual – and we can all do it! We just need to open our hearts, dig deep and embrace the challenge.
