Springtime!

Spring Session is coming up fast!

Time to decide which creative endeavour to go after. Here is the new information for all my Spring Courses, Classes, and Workshops – In person and online. I will post next month about offerings for Summer and Fall.

For those who have asked, I have requested that Acrylics 2 be available in the Fall session at Auarts. We’ll see what they say – I’ll let you know as soon as I do.

I hope you find something you would love to get right into!

By the way, I was just asked about this and thought you should know – every image that I use in my marketing has been created by me and only me!
