Before I tell you more about 
"Learn the ART of PROCREATE" let's talk about who this course is really for...

You’re a creative with no shortage of artistic ideas, but finding time and space to create is a daily struggle, and often you feel your creativity has lost its unique power...

Whether you're a:

• A traditional artist who wants to learn to work digitally on a tablet - but has been timid about absorbing all that "techy" jargon. :)

• A busy creative with crazy days who finds it difficult to find "studio" time because family & schedule keep you from dedicated time to work.

• A creative who does not have space to spread out art supplies– and this keeps you from starting and/or finishing  your great ideas...

If you answered “wow, that’s me” to any (or all) of the above...you’re in the right place!

Step-by-Step I will guide you through Procreate's tools and techniques, and I will provide support–not only about learning Procreate– but also how to apply this new knowledge to YOUR unique art.

Frequently Asked Questions

I can’t wait for you to
"Learn the ART of PROCREATE"

I've been a Licensed Artist for decades...and have taught college, upper level, digital illustration for years. I know what I teach. And I know what you experience each day as a creative.

As an artist who spent countless hours in my studio– drawing and painting to meet deadlines– while my family lived life around me… sometimes I felt very alone.

In 2018, while purchasing my iPad Pro, an Apple Genius told me about Procreate. I downloaded the $9.99 App - and BOOM - it changed my creative life. So, here I am preaching the good news to you today!

With Procreate, I learned to draw and paint– MY art– in the same room where my family watches television. I can draw and paint at anytime during a busy day.  Now, my studio is back to the haven it once was. I’m no longer locked in one room to find my creativity.

My friends - when you can take your tablet anywhere, and create YOUR art whenever or wherever your imagination is knocking– you catch creativity before it fades. It can be magical. 

I'm looking forward to being creative together!
