I started teaching Gut Art, my oldest and most popular online class, in 2009, only a little more than a year after I started painting, because I couldn't wait to share how I was learning to cultivate my own creative voice. I wanted to pass on the joy of what I was discovering. I wanted other people to realize how incredibly wonderful it is to follow their inklings and nudges and watch themselves become more and more grounded in how they are wired to speak through their art.
However, this year, I knew that I needed to take a break from Gut Art. I needed to stretch into something new & challenging yet relaxed and more flexible schedule-wise, but I wasn't quite sure what to do in its stead. Then I began thinking about how I learn, how my creative fires are stoked, how my heart and mind get charged to do the work-play of an artist. And, finally the idea of Wonder Paint was born. I am so very thrilled to begin this new online *mostly* monthly series of studio sessions.
Wonder Paint, simply put, is a new way for me to pass on my love of the creative process with other kindred creatives. I film in my "spare 'oom" studio and simply share what's on my mind as I create (plus other random info and goofiness).
