Are you ready to finally paint

figures and portraits?

Hankering to say "Yes, My painting is finished!"?

Whether you are a seasoned artist or have never painted
before, this course could be just the thing to spark your creativity and re-connect you with
your passion and purpose so that you can be:

But here's the tricky thing about painting:

It can seem like an insurmountable task. You don't even know where to start, much less stay consistent and actually FINISH.

It can seem impossible to fit into your schedule.

Maybe you feel that you don't have the time or it is too expensive or messy.

Maybe you've never painted before and finishing a painting is the Mount Everest of goals for you, the one that keeps calling you forward

AND staying relegated to the bottom of the to-do list.

More important things come up. And before you know it, another year has passed and you are still feeling stuck, uninspired and frustrated.

You're still not creating. Your light feels a little less bright and there's a burning inside

Enough with the waiting.

I learned years ago that

painting is medicine.

When I look back on my life I realize that the creative part of me is what helped me to cope with life's challenges. Art was always my retreat "Into myself" when circumstances seemed unbearable or overwhelming.
As I got older, painting taught me how to cope with grief, fear, anxiety and stress.

I can honestly say that allowing myself to explore painting as medicine has helped me to overcome addiction and

self-sabotage - to ultimately live a life that's Thriving.

I want to show YOU how re-connecting to your CREATIVITY can FREE your Spirit to express the Unique, Beautiful, and Talented being that you ARE!
So here's what we're going to do:

We're not going to wait another year or even
another moment.

We're not going to wait for the perfect time.

The time is NOW.
We are going to DO THIS THING

We're going to

I'll teach you how to

And I'll teach you everything I've learned about mastering figure painting,

creating expressive portraits and

simplifying oil painting

so that you will be able to.

"Marilyn is like a veil I wear over Norma Jeane." - Marilyn Monroe

We are painting Marilyn Monroe as the subject of this course.

I have always been fascinated with her story. I find it amazing that, even though she was a sex symbol,

women as well as men have always been drawn to her.

It is clear that she continues to be a powerful symbol in her iconic fame that goes on over 50 years after her tragic death.

Marilyn Monroe's movie magic was in her ability to take her emotional interior and make it palpably visible to audiences.

And isn't this exactly what we do when we paint?

As artists (and yes Dear, you ARE an artist) we express our "inner world" on the canvas.

This is what makes each of us and
what we create, so unique.

I'll be your guide

on this painting adventure!

Why should you learn from me?

I first painted Marilyn in 2015

This was a tough year for me. I was separated from my ex-husband and navigating a scary and uncertain future.

Painting Marilyn Monroe filled me with a renewed sense of confidence and purpose.

There is a neurological response that occurs in your brain when you tap into your creative mind.

  • I have learned how to teach my students to access this in the 7 years that I have been leading painting workshops.
  • I will not leave you "floundering" on your own. Each week we will meet Live on zoom for our group call.
  • I show up for you 100% and bring my years of training, education, experience and trial and error to the classroom.



Since 2014 I have been teaching painting workshops.

I have continued to be amazed by what my participants can do when they are simply given permission to explore the blank canvas and play with paint.

More and more it was clear to me that the truth is
we are ALL Artists.

Fast forward to 2020 and we are in the midst of a global pandemic. When this happened I felt a tremendous calling to be of service.

I began offering my Painting, Yoga and Meditation classes online.

I learned how to use Zoom to connect with my students all over the country and we were able to use the time at home to be creative and harness that energy into our thoughts and emotions.

This gave us Peace and Joy during a time of fear and uncertainty.

This is a photo from my first Zoom Paint Party during the quarantine.

During the quarantine I have immersed myself in online painting workshops as the student and I have learned and grown in so many ways. I finally got back to oil painting and realized how simple and beautiful it can be.

I want to share this with you!
