If you asked my dogs about me, they’d say, “She’s always got her nose in a sketchbook.”

  • My last full-time job was as a photographer and graphic designer.

  • I have a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism.

  • Drawing takes me back to the fun parts of being a kid, so I bring a sketchbook everywhere. My favorite drawing places are the local zoo, library, rock shows, and animal shelters.

Drawing with other artists has been a game changer for my practice, so I started hosting sessions on Zoom to share my love of vintage photos, animals, and storytelling. Let’s draw together!

Here are some of my top posts:

That Silly Color Wheel
Protect your Brain Space
Let’s Make a Character!

What to expect in drawing sessions

We meet on Zoom. I share my screen, and we draw from reference images against a timer, so there’s no overthinking. Sometimes I incorporate a fun word game to inspire stories and laughs. There’s no requirement to speak or switch your camera on. You’re welcome to ignore the timer or work on your projects if they call to you. Once a month, we have wonderful guest artist cohosts and you can chat and ask them questions.

You can share all, some, or none of your drawings at the end. You can also upload your art to a weekly thread for paid subscribers to get feedback!
