Are you drawn to fashion illustration and design?

Like me?  Do you LOVE ideas, colors, textures,people, styles, art, imagination…

….but feel like you don’t “know how to draw” — and so you feel stifled and stuck,  but  want to go deeper and realize your visions and dreams, expressing your vibrant creativity and style……

(SUBSCRIBE TODAY and get my “DRAWING WITHOUT FEAR” masterclass free along with other art and fashion resources and trainings!!!!)

DID you know that  you can learn fashion illustration tools and techniques, explore and sketch your ideas out in a self-paced but supported and encouraging community at a college level quality but without all the BS…?

Whether for career skill or for the pure exhilaration of creating, art and/ or fashion design skills are YOURS if you want them.


but now I spend most of my time coaching, teaching, and guiding beginners into the worlds of model drawing, fashion illustration, design sketching, portfolio, and more…

I believe 


That art is your BIRTHRIGHT.

I know that you can learn these tools, skills and mindset, with the right guidance. 


I want you to LOVE what you do, and get experienced and confident but even more so develop a relationship with yourself, your creativity, and your power that surpasses what you thought was possible!

HAVE YOU ALWAYS LIVED fashion art and design?

Did you put off your dream of studying fashion?

Did you have to, for work, or for lack of funds or time or because you were unsupported or discouraged from doing what you really wanted to?

Are you wanting to act on this, finally?

In a setting that is affordable, time-flexible, and encouraging so that you can thrive and bloom?

Are you curious what you could do and make if you knew what Fashion  or Art School students were learning?

EACH of them has had a UNIQUE VOICE, and I would love to help you bring out yours.
