What you'll do
After booking this experience, you'll receive a message from me with a few questions helping me get to know you + your story. On the day of the experience, you will be welcomed into the judgement-free space. I’ll get you something to drink and show you around my studio. You’ll decide how clothed or unclothed you wish to be, and before we begin, I'll lead you through some breathing and grounding exercises. Next, we'll get to work, and you will be guided through a series of simple poses while I draw each one. We’ll chat and laugh or listen to your favorite album, and in between each pose, you'll get to see what I've drawn. During our time together, we will go through 3-5 poses, and at the end of our time, you will be able to choose your two favorite drawings to take home. You will leave feeling wildly alive, affirmed in your skin, and with a new piece of local art to boot! All drawings come on 9x12 inch, archival paper, and I will personally be package each one in a cardboard sleeve, so they can travel home with you safe and sound!
My art career began as a side-hustle while working as a Montessori teacher and has now turned into a full-time career. An exhibiting artist with works held in private collections internationally, my artwork has recently been featured in juried exhibits, a book of female empowerment poetry, on the runway, and in the halls of 21c Museum Hotel. Figurative painting helped me to recover from an eating disorder and rediscover the beauty and strength in my body. I am passionate about passing this body-positivity on to others because a human who feels empowered in their skin will be more empowered in the world.
Assorted herbal and black teas available as well as Babe Rose
Drawings are done in India Ink on heavyweight paper
