Hey everyone! Have you been daydreaming about holidays you can't go on? Has facebook been taunting you with pictures of overseas adventures you were living this time last year?
I'm SO EXCITED to tell you my 4TH CLASS is now live! In Portfolio Builder: Flatlay Fun I break down the steps to create a flatlay illustration inspired by your fave ADVENTURE. It can be an adventure you plan to go on, once the borders are open and we can travel again, or a holiday you took last year. Drawing little icons is heaps on fun!
Hello! I hope you are safe and well in these crazy times.
I have just published my third Skillshare class: Bite-sized Botanicals - Heritage Carrots!
It's short, project based class. Watch it in under 30 minutes. Paint along, or complete the project in your lunch break or after dinner!!
The perfect something to do during these times of isolation and endless at-home-ness.

I hope you are getting a chance to do something creative and feed your mental health. x
After compiling survey feedback from my lovely subscribers, I am happy to announce 5 classes for early 2020. Join me in Melville, Western Australia, and learn the magic of watercolour as we paint florals, sea turtles, succulents and more!
I'm also teaching classes that incorporate gouache or coloured pencils with watercolour technique. Can't wait!
Check out the classes here.
If you can learn with me in person, you can always check out my online classes via Skillshare. I have a pile of new ones planned for 2020.
Happy Holidays and Happy Painting!
My 'Level Up Your Watercolours - Master Layers' class is up on Skillshare. I'm really excited about this one because it is designed for beginners to help students master the fundamental skill of watercolouring: Layers!
It is the key skill to building depth, and adding detail and definition to your watercolour illustrations.
From my experience teaching classes in person, this is the concept that is foreign to many students. So I've created a class that builds, lesson by lesson, to help you master complex layering. For the final project we paint a sea turtle.
In the class I cover: transparency, glazing, order of layers, mixing washes, negative painting, and complex layering and loads more.

I am excited to announce the launch of my Spring workshop series! I have four new workshops running from my home studio in Melville, Western Australia. Take one class or all four and kick-start your watercolour journey.
These classes are aimed at beginners and dabblers. All materials are supplied and classes are limited to ten adults.
Learn how to paint gorgeous soft roses and arrange them in a bouquet or wreath with a range of leaves and filler flowers. We'll cover wet-in-wet painting and simple layering which you will be able to replicate at home on greeting cards and other projects.
This popular class is back! We pack so much into this class to equip you for your next adventure. The workshop covers travelling light with journalling materials, layout ideas to add interest, ways to incorporate text and images, and when and where to journal.
Mixing colours can be a real challenge and can make painting frustrating. In this hands on workshop we cover basic colour theory in a practical way and get you well on the way to mixing cohesive colour schemes and accurate colours. You'll be so inspired and colour-confident after completing this class!
Want to give the gift of handmade this Christmas? We'll cover some easy techniques you can use to paint a swag of Christmas cards. I'll teach you ink and wash, wet in wet, layering techniques and some clever ways to replicate your design to save time.
Excited? Check out dates and more here.
