My new website is on air, Yayy

Hi beautyfull you,

This website is moving to


The last few nonth i’ve bin working really hard on a lot of things. My class for Let’s Face it was a lot of work but it was amazing what all the students created during my class! I also made my own new website : !
I’ve created a lot of paintings and participated in auctions , that is a whole new experience for me. At first i was really shy but i like it and people were actually like my art and i did sell some art , Yayy for me 🙂 .

The next project i’m working on together with Muriel is Mixed N Match !
Muriel and i are working on a brand new online live 12 weeks class especially for the beginner artist. This class is going to be great!
You can read more on my new website what this class is all about.

So what i’m trying to say is that i’m very busy, i like what i do and i’m very blessed  with all the new opportunities i get!

This website will only be here for a couple of weeks so note to all my students: Go to the new website for your classes.. Everything will be the same there in the classroom!

Video blog about my favorite Art Supplies !

Hi lovely You,

Today i want to share a video blog post with you. In one of my FB groups, the international one, i did get the questions if i could make a blog post about my most favorite Art Supplies. I decided that it would be better if i make a video about it so that i can explane trough camera what i use, how i use it and why i use it. The video is good but i did have a really bad hair day, loll. I must say that i liked it a lot to make a video blog post. Every time i make a blog post it is difficult for me because i need to check my Englisch spelling muliple times if it is ok what i write..  not that the talking is perfect but is simply easier for me. Let me know what you think of it and if you like video blog post.. If you have any questions for me, or if you want me to make a video about any  topic art related please let me know in the comments..Take a cup of coffe or tea and have fun 🙂 .

Have Fun!

My love for Painting Girls

Hi beautyful you,

After being very busy with my class for Let’s Face It i really wanted to paint something for ME. I did make a couple of progress photos i would like to share with you..


imageLast week i did struggle a bit with a painting i was working on.
I started drawing to start a new painting on a lovely background  i made and out of the blue there was an Angel on my canvas. I had no idea why i did that haha. I don’t often draw or paint angels, not that i don’t like them though.

imageOk, i love Challenges so i kept on going and started with her face and i used my dry technique wich i really love, i added a lot of layers with a dry brush and dry paint , without using Any water. Love love that technique! Not ready yet with her face but i really wanted to Play with her wing who did have  lots and lots of texture from the modeling paste i used. I really added a lot of layers to her wings, watercolors, paints, inks and even shine but i didn’t like them.

I kept on layering and stil i wasn’t happy with them. I just didn’t love the colors and it felt like something was missing on those  gorgeous big wings.
At one point i did make her wings darker and it still felt if there was someting missing on her or her wings. The very colorful background wich i really liked at the beginning was holding me back to add more colors so i decited to make a bold move, i painted the background black! I love to use black in my painting and with my girls. So now the background was black and it felt a little better but still not satisfied with her wings. I started playing with her hair and added white doodles  and i did love the contrast from the black hair and the white doodles.

Now i really got stuck with her and her wings…..

Ok i really Needed to put it away for a while to look at her and to try to feel how she wanted her wings and what my next steps should be. After a couple of hours i did ad some more layers paint into her face. I start to like her more and i did make another very bold move.. I decited to paint her wings black too.. and woww i am so happy with her now. She really shines, her face is really warm and kind and her hair flows over into the background. I really learned a lot from this painting. I learned that even if i have a gorgeous background it really is OK to change the background completly if it doesn’t feel right. I learned to put away a painting if I get stuck with it. I also learned to still continue to follow my feeling when i am painting..

I like her a lot!
