E-Courses


My true passion lies in helping and teaching others, so I feel so blessed to live in a world where it's possible to share my classes with people all around the world.

All e-courses are hosted online and include unlimited access so that you may revisit at any time. I offer simple, step by step guides in a safe and loving environment which are perfect for beginners, those who think they "aren't creative", and even experienced creatives who are feeling stuck.

Within my e-courses, I always include a mix of cultivating creativity and self discovery. Because I know there's more to creating than just pulling out a paintbrush. It takes courage, self respect, and sometimes a lot of internal struggle. Let me be your guide as we tear down the walls that hold our innovative souls hostage, crush through creative blocks and neutralize that crippling inner critic. And while I may teach techniques and exercises that I know and love, each lesson is designed to leave you plenty of room for your own interpretation, in order to help you discover your own true creative voice.
