My Classes

.

Every class I create is broken down into bite sized pieces so you can learn how to draw and design on your iPad by learning one little step at a time. In each class, you’ll learn how to create sharable illustrations and hand lettering compositions. You can use the projects you create in my classes for sharing online, uploading to print on demand sites, or printing out for personal or commercial use.

About Me

I’m an artist, designer, and teacher who loves sharing techniques and resources.  I’ve been painting, collaging, and drawing since I was old enough to hold scissors and pencils without adult supervision, and I earned an MFA in art in 2013. Since then, I’ve been teaching around the world, online and in person.

.I’m obsessed with pushing the limits of painting and illustrating on my iPad, and helping hobbyists, artists, and designers develop their creative style.   I share tons of iPad tips, resources, and downloads on my blog here.

.

I love sharing resources with other artists and designers, so each of my classes includes some freebies like this font:

Why iPads

You know that feeling when you sit down in front of expensive watercolor or drawing paper and wonder if you’ll “mess it up”? I know this feeling stops a lot of people from sitting down to create, which is why the iPad is a perfect companion for artists and designers. When you create on your iPad, you can totally forget about wasting materials, and just get your ideas on down.

.

.

Another great aspect of working digitally, is that you can create anywhere.  In the car on a road trip, on a park bench, or sitting at a cafe with your favorite drink. So if you can’t find me, I’m probably hiding in a coffee shop drawing on my iPad.

Common Questions

Can I use your brushes and downloads for commercial use?

I love to give away free brushes and downloads!  I create them specifically for the projects shown in my classes, but feel free to use them on other projects.  You can use the brushes and downloads I give away to create artwork for both personal and commercial use.  The only restriction is that I ask that you don’t sell or give away the brushes or downloads themselves.  Anything you create on your own device is fair game though!  Have more questions?  Send me a message below.

Where did you get your iPad grip and case?

I created a post with links to all of my favorite iPad gear here.
