Illustrator, Designer and Hand Drawing Enthusiast

Working as a professional pattern designer, textile artist and illustrator over the last 20 years, I have enjoyed sharing my passion for creativity and encouraging others to explore creativity in all areas of their lives.

I enjoy finding ways to encourage and help people to use creativity for both relaxation and productivity and for just plain fun.  My goal is to design and share fun and creative, hand drawing exercises that prove just how simple it can be.  Most of my classes only require a pencil, paper and pen.

 I find there is nothing like the relaxing sensation of a pencil gliding across the paper making your ideas come to life. I love exploring all mediums and am always trying to push the boundaries in new methods of design, but no matter what, I always come back to pencil and paper.
