I have been thinking about how to reward people who want to support at a higher level so I am introducing the ART-IN-THE-MAIL tier.

Each month I will create a small original work on paper. I will sign & date and put it in the mail just for you. Your support is such a gift and I so much appreciate your love.




As an entrepreneur, professional artist, seeker of truth and believer in the creative spirit, I have learned just how magical shared inspiration can be. Spending most of my life as both teacher and student, there is one thing I know for certain; community makes a monumental difference in the artistic journey.

Here you will find your tribe,
Develop your practice,
Learn techniques,
Open your possibilities,
Engage your curiosity,
Jumpstart your motivation,
Embrace your style,
Build your confidence,
Grow your gifts,
Evolve your art,
And celebrate your uniqueness

This Patreon is the heart of my creative process, my way to bring original fresh, inspiring content to creatives looking to evolve their artistic perspectives in new ways. I strive to motivate and challenge artists to push past their fear and create from their intuitive core.

Your subscription unlocks your exclusive access to dozens of step-by-step lessons, tutorials, demos, challenges, professional advice, creative feedback, mentoring and so much more.

The feedback that I get from my patrons already gathered here has been so beautiful, sometimes vulnerable and always insightful. My patrons have gotten to know me and I have made incredible connections with so many. This is where I expose all of my creative and sometimes not so creative processes. I cherish the connection.

I post several times a month. I talk about everything. My creative life, my work, my inspirations, my troubles, my process, I ask questions and I read every comment because it means so much to me that you take the time to say so much!

So whether you’ve been a fan of mine since my scrapbooking days or you’ve just recently found me, I would love to invite you to join this community and dive into the inspiration.

And if you are already one of my patrons...THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH for your support. I love you and you are making the impossible dream possible.

You make magic happen!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via text/call the studio at 704.240.8076 or or here on Patreon once you sign up!

For an overview of how Patreon works in general, they’ve got a great primer HERE to explain how it works.

if you’d like more information about How Patreon Works or need help with your Patreon account you can view a ton of resources on Patreon’s support page and contact their support team directly:

321 of 500 patrons
Your enthusiasm and encouragement has not only inspired Inspiration Wednesday (Now INSPIRATION Any Day) to continue, but given so many artists, including myself, the drive to keep experimenting. When our community reaches 500 patrons, I will release an additional INSPIRATION Any Day lesson every month.
