First things first.

I know that it takes time to decide whether someone’s work, personality, and offerings are for you.

With that in mind, I invite you to try out the much loved Artnotes.  

Artnotes go out most Mondays, and are packed with thought provoking ideas, behind the scenes stories about being an artist, tips you can take to the studio, blog post updates, occasional free mini courses and offers.

Pop your details into the form, and I’ll see you in your inbox!

Now, onto the good stuff!

The offerings are divided into categories to help you find what you need. And if you’d like access to everything from just $37, you’ll want to check out the Happy Artist Studio, my main membership for artists.

There is, and you can. This course takes you on a journey with a selection of artists {who also happen to be women}, showing you how to take your inspiration and run with it as you develop your own distinctive style.

​​​​​​​"I want to say a huge thank you for creating this Happy Artist Studio. You’ve already helped me such a lot by moving me on and allowing me to develop and take a huge leap to create the kind of art I knew I wanted to, but just didn’t have the confidence to tackle. But now being able to access so much material at once feels like a genuine luxury. I’m so glad that I found you in amongst the myriad of art support out there."
