Tutorials & Resources

One of my passions is helping other people have FUN through art, especially those who are beginners or those who feel like they don’t have a creative bone in their bodies.  I believe that EVERYONE can be creative!

So many wonderful artists have shared their techniques with me and this Tutorials & Resources Page is my way of “PAYING IT FORWARD” to others who want to learn.  Enjoy!  And feel free to share the links!  I’ll be adding many more tutorials and adding videos soon!
