Self Portraiture: Solace and Soul

mixed media techniques and projects that bring you closer to yourself than ever

It’s very simple.

Self-portraiture is not an exercise in vanity.

Self-portraiture is a contemplation of soul.

It is an opportunity to slow down, contemplate, purge, and celebrate what lives inside us. Working with the gaze of self opens layers, sheds skins, and soothes the soul.

Ours is a world of limited solace. We seek that solace ‘out there’ relentlessly. Texting, scrolling, commenting, and comparing ourselves to others.

The solace you seek externally can only be found in the chaos and stillness that lives inside you.

You are flesh, bone, brain … and soul.

In this mixed media bundle I will share techniques and projects from my unique perspective, having been a self-portrait artist and memoirist for decades.

Upon purchase you will receive an email with full access to all materials at once through my online classroom - all materials and videos will be fully downloadable.

Art demo videos will include: painting on wood panel, Bauhaus inspired collage, abstract expressionism inspired works, and projects derived from photography.

I teach art and self-transformation through the lens of mythology, symbolism, archetypes, esoterica, and the wisdom of our collective history.

My workshops are created for everyone who craves development of their art practice and their soul - and deeply desires the freedom that lives in authentic expression.

My creative world is a glorious, evocative, and sometimes intense intersection where shadow and beauty collide and weave themselves together.

I have created and hosted sold out retreats, workshops, and online courses, inspiring creatives all over the world.

My art classes are all based on psychological development with a robust dash of my esoteric toolbox.

You can learn mixed media tricks and techniques anywhere out in the world.

I will bring you into deep connection with, and pure expression from, the deepest places within your soul. That is the only way I create, and that is the only way I guide.

With me, it doesn’t matter how well you master your technique, or what technique you use in the first place.

Oh, you’ll learn oodles of them from me. But …

Technique schmechnique.

Are you creating from your head?

Or are you being guided by your soul, lost in your own wild world with drizzles and splashes of magic flying from your fingertips?
