I’m thrilled to make my big announcement — my new video workshops are now available online at!

Our online video classes bring an art teacher with international experience right into your studio. Work at your own pace, get personalized instruction, and interact with a community of like-minded artists. Best of all, every class is just $49 US with six months of access to videos and the class community.

I’ve been teaching in-person in my studio and around the country for years, but availability has always been limited to a handful of students per class. At the same time, so many of you have expressed interest in my workshops over the years with the regret that you live too far away to join me. To solve both of these problems my husband Bill and I decided to offer video classes, delivered online.

Here’s How it Works

  • All videos are available immediately so you can work at your own pace.
  • Your purchase gives you six months of access to the videos starting the moment you purchase the class.
  • The class includes an online forum where you can chat with the instructor and other students, share photos of your work in progress and post finished work.
  • The instructor will answer forum questions several times daily for the first 7 days of each month.
  • You’ll also benefit from discussions with all of the other students throughout the duration of the class.

For those of you who haven’t tried encaustic painting before the new web site even includes a free video on how to set up your own encaustic studio.

Can you help me spread the word?

Please forward this link to a friend or two who you think might be interested. I’ve announced this on FaceBook and Twitter recently too, so if you see those posts please “like” them or retweet. Many thanks…

Many artists already use the excellent forum hosted by R&F Paints, but now we have a new blog to look forward to in 2009 as well. Below is a great video they posted recently showing how they make paint and pigment sticks, or visit their new blog.

Many of you have likely see this video already, but I found it so fascinating that I want to be sure you get a chance to see it. It’s called 500 Years of Female Portraits in Western Art, and put together by Philip Scott Johnson. Mesmerizing!

At some points it seems like this might be the same woman in all the portraits, showing and hiding her true self as she pleases. But isn’t that what we all do anyway?

Couldn’t make it to the pre-party for my Portland Open Studios weekend? Take a virtual tour via this short video:

If you’d like to join the fun in person stop by my studio this weekend, October 13 & 14, to see encaustic demos from 10 am – 5 pm. You can find more details on my web site, including the address for my studio.
