Hi friends, 2022 has been an amazing year of One on Ones with so much great work being made and exhibited! It's been a phenomenal experience and I'm ready to make 2023 even more robust! Let's make this happen - for YOU! I'd like to plan a no charge Zoom session with you so we can brainstorm direction and plan for art making, consultations, building a body of work and or exhibitions together.
One on One sessions can be 2D or 3D processes and / or consultation based - Zoom, In-person and or Local Studio Visit options.
See just some of the many supplies and processes below. We can also dive into abstraction, composition, exhibition brainstorming and preparation, installation, Photoshop, website review, gallery hopping, social media, exhibition submissions and more.
I work with artists in numerous ways to fit their schedules and needs;
Choose a few hours, a few days and or monthly meetings – all flexible as schedules allow.
Set up a free Zoom brainstorming session - tons of fun as I focus on you and your work and we come up with exciting ways to explore the possibilities.
The sessions have been amazing and I'm honored to assist you! Please be in touch! If you haven't had a chance to look, see the pics from the One on One exhibitions here and I look forward to having shows again!

Monotypes are an original printmaking process of laying down your paint, in this case on a heated surface with encaustic paint, and then gently laying the paper down to pick up the beautiful image. You can then work back into it with more layers of encaustic paint, watercolors and or inks. You can also cut or tear the paper to collage into other works. This is so much fun - a loose and freeing process. No encaustic painting experience required, let just go for it!

Interested in creating your personal color palette? This can happen in oils, acrylics or encaustic but here I'm showing some encaustic colors mixed from a variety of mixed encaustic paints and added powdered pigments then poured into a silicone bake pans for easy release. These can now be used for monotypes or painting on boards. Such a great exploration in personalizing your work with nuanced colors.
Enjoy the beauty, fun and versatility in working with Tyvek. We'll be ironing, inking and optionally using acrylics as well, then thinking about ways to attach and build forms. The color and form possibilities are endless .. let's see where your color palette takes you!
