awesome art journal workshop registration now OPEN!!

i'm soo excited! hope that some of you can join! x


Awesome Art Journal Workshop

Art Journals are magical places where all judgements fall away! Your Art Journal is a place where you can create without inhibitions or fear of 'doing it wrong'. Art Journals are not for making 'perfect' art (what is that anyway?), they are for soul expression, a space for you to be, to express, create, to heal, to laugh, to cry!

This course will do just that; help you express your soul in creative, expressive and outrageous ways! For more detailed information about the course, pls download the course outline and material list HERE.

Workshop 2 - Awesome Art Journal
This course will run for 5 weeks with a full length video (approx 1hour) & pdf file per week!
Course skill level: beginner & intermediate
Course fee:$65

Course outline

**pls note that course themes or techniques could be slightly adjusted throughout the course, the above is a guideline only.


Videos can be downloaded throughout the 5 weeks, don't worry if you're not available on Monday's; all videos remain online for the duration of the course and some time thereafter.

Your pdfs will contain technical guidance on the techniques that have been covered in the videos.

This course will not focus on learning 'how to draw', although I am likely to cover a few basics of drawing as well. I will cover 2 art journal techniques per week (approx 10 in total), instead of covering a healing theme separately, it will be woven into the creation process.

Note: once you have paid and signed up for the course, you will be
sent an welcome pack which lists materials and other details of the course.

painting for graeme

so i made a custom painting for a man called graeme who is suffering from lymphoma. pls watch the video, and while you do, send healing energy into the universe so that graeme, perhaps, may receive some of it? some of you may remember that my brother was misdiagnosed with lymphoma in april last year, we went through hell for 2 weeks (he was basically told he had it 100% certain only to find out he didn't; he actually had the epstein bar virus!!), anyhoo, i feel for graeme, like i feel for anyone who is suffering a great deal, so any healing vibes/ energy/ prayers for him are greatly appreciated.

and here some photies of the ever-growing stomach:
