How to Attract and Engage Your Community with Storytelling Visuals
(also Branding, Marketing and Fine Art)

How are you holding up? Freaking out, wondering what to do next, or ready to kick out the jams?

Are you a new or struggling entrepreneur, creative, healer or anyone looking for inspired, fun, practical guided learning experiences?

You want to create engaging, unique visual storytelling images and experiences. 

Without the huge price tag of college with boring, out of touch teachers (been there, done that, I could tell you stuff). Or $2,000 for typical online programs. Instead, cutting edge. Fast. Affordable. Actionable.

Whatever your experience or skills, YOU can do this. With my step-by-step guidance. If you are Dreaming Big!

My late mother always told me people actively created businesses, provided for their families and served others in the Depression.

I believe in the redemptive, healing power of creation by:

Moving forward, using whatever tools and attitudes needed to create and share art, products, services, create community, and to help heal our souls and hearts.

This belief, with action, helps many deal with daily issues, while creating their better future.

I am revising my site. If you would like to enroll or have questions, please just write me! I still have a fully-functioning teaching site and will be glad to direct you there. Thanks and stay well!
