Introductory Skills in Celtic Art:  Interlocking and Interlacing Shapes

New Celtic Knotwork Fundamentals Class online!I have quick and easy set of lessons up on that serves as a great starter to learning Celtic Knotwork, using simple shapes.   The class is only 20 minutes, and can be re-watched as much as you’d like if you sign up for Skillshare premium (which is like the the “Netflix of Learning” with 1000’s of classes).

Heads-up, Sign ups for Skillshare Premium will still net you TWO FREE months of premium subscription instead of one with this link!

New Online Knotwork Class: Drawing Heart & Pretzel KnotsCeltic Knotwork Skills Class #2: Drawing Hearts and Pretzel Knots

This new class is a great follow-up to my first class above, and gets you on the road to learning some fundamental DESIGN skills using the heart shape as a base to create a myriad of knots….  I hope you’ll join me!


The Black and White Journal, A minimal approach to artful journaling

I’m currently a guest teacher in:  

The Black & White Journal: A Minimal Approach to Artful Journaling,  e-course hosted by the lovely and talented Kiala Givehand.   Since this is a Kiala offering, you also get two book-making lessons as well as the many ways to use just black and white in your art journals.

Learning to journal with intention but in a simple, minimalistic way. Learn to create using basic materials. Includes lessons by 8 diverse teachers sharing their love of art, art journaling, and simple approaches to journaling with a simple creative practice. It’s an amazing course perfect for Zentangle lovers.

My lesson on  “Tangled and Knotted Journaling” is one of the many things you can learn.  I’d love to see you join us there!
CLICK HERE​ to join and register.   The course and lessons are available until next July (2018) plus there’s a private Facebook Group to join when you register.
