If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. ~Vincent Van Gogh   Did you see a class you would like to attend but the dates and times didn’t fit into your schedule?  Want an evening out with friends? I am available for private classes – you select the date and time and bring along 4 other friends.  A deposit is required to hold the class time slot.  Contact me with the session you are interested in and I’ll get right back to you.

Classes can be paid online through PayPal or with a mail in registration.

Printing without a press

Monotypemonotype is a print, but with one major difference from other printmaking processes: you create only one print. To make a monotype, you  apply paint or ink directly onto the plate — which can be metal, glass, plexiglass, or even gelatin It'a a simple process that allows for lots of experimentation and variation. You  can create layered prints, use objects as masks between plate and paper, or selectively apply pressure to create a trace monotype. After the first print is pulled, there will be some ink left on the plate for a second, fainter ghost print.


Collagraph is a basic a method of printmaking using a board with collage materials glued onto it to form a relief surface with a variety of textures. A very creative and experimental form of printmaking, collagraph prints can be made with many different materials, including cardboard, yarn, fabric, leaves, masking tape and more.

Art Tiles

Art tiles are small (usually 2” x 2”) .  Embellish a square of cardstock using stamps, collage papers, crayons, etc.  It’s a simple process that allows for lots of experimentation and variation. The resulting “tile” can be used to decorate journal pages.  Back it with magnetic material and have a refrigerator magnet.  Cover it with resin and create a pendant.  There is no limit.

Self-portrait dolls

Self-portrait dolls allow you to explore your inner self. Embellish a doll shape made of chipboard using stamps, collage papers, crayons, etc.  Use this form to describe who you are or who you wish to be.

Collage expression

Collage expression  is a creative and satisfying collage process. You make your own deck of cards (3.25” x 5”)—each collage card representing one aspect of your personality or self. Use the cards intuitively to answer life’s questions and participate in self-discovery. This is based on SoulCollage created by Seena B. Frost.

Metal Tape

Metal tape (also known as duct tape) is available in a roll at your favorite hardware store.  Glue buttons, foam shapes and letters, pieces of wire etc  to your substrate to create image and texture.  Cover the result with metal tape.  The tape can be further embellished with more texture and paint or ink. Because the tape is so flexible (and adhesive backed) you can decorate any object that interests you.

Mini album

Using simplified bookbinding techniques, you will use or create a variety of papers that will be bound together.  The resulting book can be a work of art on it’s own, or the base for a photograph album or even a journal.

Embellished Altiod tin/cigar box

Create your own mini work of art beginning with an empty Altoid tin or cigar box.  Place images and objects in and on the tin to create your own altar or shrine.  Whether it is religious, spiritual or humorous is up to you.

The arrangement of type involves selecting typefaces, point size, line length, line-spacing (leading), letter-spacing (tracking), and adjusting the space within letters pairs (kerning).
