Virginie Ropars Workshop!
.  This weekend, we got to spend a day with the incomparable sculptor, Virginie Ropars .  We had a full-to-the-brim room full of admiring sculptors.  Virginie could not be more charming, or darling (or talented).  We got to see and hear about many examples ...
And stay tuned! TLCWorkshops is working on getting Virginie to return for a much longer teaching stint, hopefully in 2016! (Subscribe to the mailing list to keep up with this and all the news if you haven't already). Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Pinterest ...

After a couple of busy workshop-weeks, I'm hoping to get back to some blogging.  During workshops, we tend to listen to a lot of soundtracks as we work. One that I was reminded about was the soundtrack for Children of Dune (the only Dune film experience tha...

Figure Friday
 Long-pose day....  ...decided to try oil painting the portrait again.  If I were smart, I would do this every day! Or at least, every week... Will attempt as I can, at any rate.

Story
Tagline
Illustrator and garden addict
Introduction
From my earliest memories I've been captivated by the illustrations in fairy tales and childrens books and couldn't think of anything else I'd rather do when I was grown up than create my own. When I'm not painting in the studio, I can probably be found working in my gardens to make sure that there are plenty of havens for visiting fairies.
