Join me for this wild ride of being an artist in residence around the world!
I have been an artist and traveler most of my life. My passion is to bring art and travel together and to help others find their unique creative voice!
I have been to 20 artist residencies in 14 countries and counting - from Turkey, to Iceland, London and New Zealand. I will share all I know about how to research, apply and attend an artist residency anywhere in the world!

And stay tuned for my upcoming course called "The Travelogue and Beyond - Making Art in the World at Large". This course is about seeing your environment through your unique lens and expressing that experience in an authentic and compelling way, whether you are going on a 2 week trip to Paris, or a longer expedition anywhere in the world. I will do lots of demos and show you examples of how I have created artwork on the road. We will start with creating travelogue sketchbooks wherever you may be going, and then go beyond the page to make art for the walls, installations or 3 dimensional work. Coming soon!
