April was a very wet and cold month here in New York City and, deprived of nice and warm weather to go to my favorite gardens, I used the time to get busy in the studio!
So much is happening. I'm teaching at Michaels store in Chelsea twice a week now, offering both watercolor and acrylic painting instruction in various subjects such as landscapes, florals, seascapes, and still life, and I'm also offering botanical art instruction at New York's finest botanical gardens and conservatories on weekends. Teaching alone is keeping me very busy but I have some great projects happening as well.
Some of the projects I can (partially) share, but others are still super secret (for the time being at least). I'm adding the final touches to my first Skillshare class and I cannot wait to share it with everyone. I don't want to give away too much just yet, but as a teaser, I will say that the class involves watercolor and real plants. So exciting! I also have some new, fun products coming to the shop, including eco-friendly handmade papers and botanical jewelry. And, if that weren't enough, I'm in the very initial stages of creating an oracle deck. But that's all I can say about that, so stay tuned for upcoming news. If you haven't signed up for my newsletter yet, consider doing it. You'll be the first to know what's going on in my studio and the development of my secret projects. And of course, as a subscriber, you get exclusive products, sales, and discounts available only for my subscriber.
Well, the weather is gorgeous today (finally!), so I best get going and check as many items off my (very long) to-do list, so I can at least spend at least a little time outdoors later in the afternoon.
Have a wonderful day, stay creative, and shine your light brightly to the world!
