If there is one aspect of being an artist I am most an expert at, it's how to find and develop a personal style, message and meaning in one's work. Throughout my lifelong journey as an artist I have learned how to cut through the noise of visual and social trends and stay aligned with what truly inspires my heart. Because of that, dream clients, dream spaces and creative opportunities consistently show up in my inbox.
I currently take on a select number of students for creative mentorship each season and focus exclusively on the development of a personal practice. A creative mentorship will guide you through the resistance, frustrations and growth in the artistic journey, and bring you closer to your unique visual voice and personal and professional artistic goals. This is when you put your creativity and inspirations first, and all the noise of "should" "have to" "too much" and "not good enough" outside the studio door.
Over the next three months, we will work toward developing your individual style, finding a subject matter that makes your heart skip a beat, and unearthing your core WHY so that you feel a sense of purpose and excitement about the work you are making.
Mentorships are by application only, and are scheduled in three-month commitments and longer in order to establish a consistent habit of art-making and self discipline in your practice so that the rate of your growth is faster, your body of work more substantial and the themes of your work more clearly visible
