About This Class

Words matter. A few years ago, when I began to take more conscious steps towards designing a life I truly wanted, I started a tradition of picking a word as my mantra for an entire year. Instead of a New Year’s Resolution, just one word became my guide; an affirmation that inevitably became my experience and narrative for that year. Intuitively, my word embodied what I most needed at the time (even if I didn’t know it).

I invite you to join me for this playful 10-minute class, where we’ll explore the process of picking one word as a mantra for your creative practice... and bringing it to life in a physical piece of art that can be a reminder to you in the months ahead.

This class is perfect for anyone who is looking for some playful guidance and enjoys making things. No prior experience needed, just an openness to whimsy and magic.

So beautiful, meaningful and simple - in a best meaning of this word.
Super idea! <3
Thank you so much for your very inspiring class. In the past I have found my inspirational word has been "playful" and I am looking forward to finding another word to guide my creative practice this year after taking your class.

There is no path to mastery that does not involve doing something over and over -- that's been my experience as an artist and illustrator!

So I encourage my students to take small consistent steps by creating bite-sized classes that make art a simple, easy, daily practice -- one that is joyful and fun!
