Hello....I want to update you all on my new classes and workshops. I have updated my regular weekend encaustic workshop schedule. Click here to see the dates I have available for July and August.
Wax and Wine!
Have a fun night making art and memories with your friends! We will work with mixed media and everyone will leave with a piece of art that can include your own imagery! Makes a great gift and a fun experience. I have hosted birthday parties at my studio...I call it wax and wine because we will use wax and you can bring your own wine or other beverage....and the Distillery District has many venues to socialize in after our class is over.

Travelling Art Parties
I am also open to coming to host a party at your house within the Greater Toronto Area subject to availability with my travelling art studio...please contact me here for a quote. We cannot use traditional hot wax, but I have lots of mixed media supplies - pan pastels, acrylic paints, stamps, stencils, collage and we can even experiment a little with water soluble encaustics which require no heat or instruments!
I am offering Corporate and Small Business Team Building workshops. As a former Corporate accountant, I know the benefits of having a creative outlet and I used my creativity to overcome feelings of stress and anxiety that sometimes came with having a demanding job. The mind is a powerful thing....we can either be drawn into our daily dramas or we can connect to our inner strength and have tranquility through right brain activity....weather it is art journaling, photography, painting, crafts - whatever your creative practice, they take you to a place of stillness. I am a meditator and spend a good 20 minutes every day in a meditative state, but if I include my time being creative, I would say I am in a state of meditative bliss many hours a day. I am fortunate to be able to do this for a living now but I offer these workshops to help others also connect to that quiet space inside them. It is amazing to watch my students with the complete calm and stillness when they are deep in the creative process...even newbies who have never picked up a paintbrush.
