Ready to clarify and strengthen your artist voice, and share your work with the world?


You know you’re an artist. You’ve been taking courses, learning techniques, and honing your skills. You know how to use your supplies, how to start and finish a painting. You’re no longer a complete beginner.

But you’re looking for more. You want to move beyond making art in the style of those who’ve taught and inspired you. You want to make work that’s more expressive, more consistent, and a true reflection of your unique voice and vision as an artist.

The Happy Artist Studio membership is designed to help you take your art to whatever the next level is for you, and become a happy artist – practicing, thriving and fulfilled.

Full access to courses and learning materials valued at £2000, a private and welcoming community, and monthly themes to support you in creating your life as an artist. Join for a month, or join for a year and get two months free! 

Great for:

  • creating your own ‘bespoke art degree’ {the year long membership option gives you a focused container}
  • committing to taking your art to the next level, whether that means deepening and clarifying your personal practice, or developing your art into a business 
  • immersing in your art process and practice until you know it inside out and feel confident, clear, and excited about your next steps
  • making your art your own – release the copying, the influence and the limitations for your most expressive, truest art 


“I’ve been having great fun working through the Happy Artist Studio. I love your overall approach to art and your generous and down to earth teaching style, and I’ve found your lessons really thought-provoking and inspirational. I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work, heart and soul you obviously put into your courses; they are genuinely some of the best I’ve ever taken.”

Refresh and develop your art with ideas from women artists


Dive into a diverse mix of female artists from past and present, explore their ideas and techniques, play and experiment to your heart’s content…
and use what you learn to develop the unique voice of your own art.

Great for you if:

  • You’re in an art rut and could do with some fresh new energy and inspiration
  • You love exploring the work of other artists but find it hard not to just copy them
  • You love making art but work best right now with a jumping off point
  • You want to develop your own artistic voice
  • You love art history
  • You like to work at your own pace.
  • You have an experimental, open mindset and like to explore ideas
  • You enjoyed Artist Inspired and would like to explore the work of some female artists now 😊


“I love how you fit in so much inspiring and useful teaching in a way that is simple & clean – and therefore visually digestible online. Your presence and humor comes through wonderfully in your work & video commentary, in a way keeps us focused on the art. And I really appreciate the insightful details like “if you loved this artist, you may like” and the lists of words to keep in mind when experimenting with each artist’s approach. Brilliant!”

Make a collection of small original paintings on postcards in your own unique style in this process oriented and fun online workshop!

A fun and simple project to create a collection of small original paintings, practice making consistent work, and give as gifts, keep, or sell.

Great for:

  • A simple process for creating a cohesive collection of small paintings {which you can apply to large paintings too!}
  • A way to make gifts {birthday, anniversary, housewarming, just because…} with your art
  • A way to make small original art to sell
  • A fun, low key project that you can do any time, with minimal investment and plenty of potential for impact
  • More insights into my own process than I usually share! {And plenty of emphasis on doing it your way. 😉 }
  • A workshop that would also make a lovely gift for an artist! {See the FAQ at the bottom to find out how.}


“The Painted Postcards course is easy to fit into a busy life: I found it flexible, affordable, and packed with useful prompts – in fact there’s a massive amount of education in this short and very accessible course. It’s amazing how working on a series of small paintings together produces such exciting results and a new sense of your own style and identity as an artist.”
