I hope you enjoy these time-lapse video clips of my creative process, as I carefully string up my Telecaster painting. There are many, MANY, hours of painting compressed into 2 mins. *Bonus* Maya makes her debut, so don't blink!! Sending you all much love!

Would love to take a workshop with you. E at
Lisa, it was so good to see you today at Art Unraveled! I came home and looked up the workshops I took from you 3 years ago. They were Learning to See, Creative Values, and A Visual Journey (at least I have a booklet titled that). I do think I attended all 3 of your classes that year, if you did teach 3. The two booklets I have are so informative. I DROOL over your visual journals - they are so rich and inspiring! I LOVE your style and all of your art.

More adventures in monotype print making… swipe to see the amazing 36” wide etching printing press my father built for me. 😍🥰

“Cancer Full Moon 2023”

Yesterday I held my first printmaking workshop in my home, using my press! Everyone had a fantastic time creating one of a kind artwork that they will use for their book covers in next weekends book making workshop.


New Years Eve monotype printmaking fun. 😅💗
I have an upcoming bookmaking/printmaking workshop that I’m teaching, so I spent the evening practicing some of the printmaking techniques. This is a one color monotype that turned into a two color monotype. I love the press my dad made…it is bad ass!! 🙌 I’ll post some images of it soon.

Now available! (Update SOLD)
I have one journal/mixed-media sketchbook ready to be shipped. This one is extra special because it has images of my artwork on both front and back covers! The pages inside are heavy weight Stonehenge printmaking paper, smooth enough to draw on yet will withstand any wet mixed media you wish to use. This is the journal I designed 10 years ago, and the primary one I use for all my visual journaling. It could be yours just in time for Christmas and the new year.

PM me for price and details. I can ship immediately.

For those just tuning in, this is a detailed shot of a 36”x36” oil painting I’ve worked on over the past 4 years. It is my vision of a 1956 Telecaster guitar, which is the 2nd painting in a series entitled Vintage Tones.
(Swipe through to see the full painting.)
PM me for info on the limited-edition, hand signed, museum quality prints.

I just added the final details to the Tele’s last control k**b… all that is left is that tiny screw head under the k**b! Then it will be complete and the title revealed!!!

Day two of teaching my “Mixed Media Watercolor” class. Everyone is learning to integrate all the techniques they learned yesterday into one painting! I’m so proud of them for being brave and open minded to learn how to use watercolors in a new way. 👏☺️👏

Just a woman and her visual journal… Sure felt GOOD to spend an afternoon surrounded by these old friends. 🙌😍🎨

This year marks 12 yrs that I have had the opportunity to participate in my local Artist Open Studios Tour. It is so much fun to share my creative process with the public! If you are near by, stop in and say hello. 😊

This Fall I began teaching drawing to children ages 3yrs-teens. They have just moved past the basics and are now having so much fun!! My “proud mama” heart about exploded last night as I watched all ages draw their first still life, using the skills I’ve been sharing. Mind you, some of these are skills I didn’t learn until I was in college! Lucky kids!!


Our new website with Studio Tour map goes live today!!


“Protector of Pearls”
Moon Mandala ~ New Moon in Aquarius during Leo season : stepping into new fresh energy/skin, appreciating Love in all of its expressions, acknowledging and owning our gifts and learning how to share them


Dean, one of my patrons, dropped by today to meet me and to see the Tele painting in person! It felt so good to be able to meet one of the many individuals who have been following the creation of this larger than life painting. Such a wonderful man, who has an appreciation for vintage instruments and shares my love for the stories attached to both the subject and the painting!
I’ll post some more in-progress video in the next few days. 💕

Happy Tele Tuesday!!
(I get asked all the time if this is a photo… it is a larger than life painting!! 😁🎨) One knurled k**b and the final screw head to go. Watch for more updates this week. This is the final lower right corner of a 36”x36” oil painting. Check out my profile to see this vintage Tele in it’s entirety.

Taught my niece the art of creating a nature mandala. She blewn me away with her creative spirit and open heartedness. We spent the better part of the afternoon creating this sacred space. Time well spent!!! 🙏🏻💗🌸

Taking a moment from painting to share my view of the studio this evening. Meet my studio girl, Maya. She likes to sleep with her back leg hanging out. 😂 She is a good girl. 💗

Anyone else have a furry friend asleep at your feet while you work?


I started a new small visual journal / sketchbook for when I’m out and about. I have found that even the most simple sketches are good for the creative soul and keeps my artist eyes sharp. This was a little tree I found at the camp ground over the weekend. Well, actually it was a combination of two baby trees. I started drawing the bottom of one, got distracted, and ended up drawing the top of another. 😂🎨

Maya and I are house/pet sitting this weekend. The light in this studio is incredible!!! I’m excited to spend a long quiet 3 days here painting! (Note the Tele painting behind me.😏) Maya is loving sleeping on the soft bed in front of some of mommy’s other paintings. 🥰

What fun plans do you have for the weekend??

My studio is cozy and warm, and I can’t think of a better place to be on this chilly last day of February. I’ve been painting realism all afternoon and am now switching over to filming the creation of my next moon mandala for a new on-line workshop I have in the works.

What do you like to do on Sunday afternoons when it is chilly outside?
