About This Class
In this class I take you step by step through my painting process as I create a detailed watercolor illustration of a nasturtium flower.
I share my favorite tools and supplies, take you to my garden to look for a subject and then I show you how I paint from initial sketch to final details. Along the way I share my tips and suggestions for how to get the best results, how to react to the process and how to deal with mistakes.
By starting with simple compositions of single botanicals, you will be able to build your skills. Eventually you can take what you learn from simpler paintings and apply those skills to more complex pieces.

For a long time I denied my identity as an artist, but in 2010 I decided to reclaim it.
Regaining my creativity didn't quite work out as I had planned. In truth, on my first attempt at leaping for my dreams I fell flat on my face. That experience, though painful, has put me on what I call a Mission of Beauty and Joy.
Today I am an artist who strives to creates something each day and encourages you to embrace your creativity, too.
My paintings have been exhibited across the country and collected around the world. My art has been featured in magazines and in the spring of 2016 I released my first fabric collection. If I hadn't taken that first leap none of this would have been possible.
You, too, are creative. You, too, are surrounded by beauty, living in a world filled with joy. Claim that joy. Pay attention to the little things, listen to whispers of magic coming from nature and the garden, reconnect to the part of you that believes in giant strawberries.
Do something creative each day.
