Whether it was making music, reciting poetry, embroidering or painting, creating was a fundamental part of my upbringing.
I would create as a child but always shied away from sharing my creations with others. While in high school, I took the standard/mandatory art classes and was always surprised whenever my work was selected to be displayed in the office or at art auctions. While teachers would encourage me to pursue art in college and potentially make a career of it, I dismissed their recommendations because of my own insecurities, choosing instead to pursue studies in marketing.

I have been working on some exciting things behind the scenes and along with my watercolors, this project will sometimes require some hand lettering. Something that I admittedly still need a lot of practice with.I started with Mary Kate Mcdevitt’s Handlettering Essentials for Beginner’s class which was perfect for me as it allowed me to get my feet wet and gave me some of the fundamentals for hand lettering. Simple things such as using a compass, rulers and other tips and tricks as well as common mistakes to avoid when you first get started.
As a creative, I don’t often follow the rules and just jump into it, which sometimes leaves me feeling frustrated and unhappy with the final result.
Something I love about Skillshare is the ability to browse through the many classes, including a pattern design I have my eye on.

I love your watercolors. . They are so “free” and delicate. Your tins with the cake paints look so portable and easy to use. Can you tell me about them? Where do I find them? Are there choices of colors?

As always, thank you for sharing your talents. I’m very glad you decided to “step out of your comfort zone” and start sharing. Your work is just beautiful. I am also one to have insecurities about my abilities, so I may be checking out some classes to take. Thanks again.
