    Come visit beautiful Florida in the spring! I'll be teaching a 3 day journal workshop at Everything Scrapbook & Stamps in Lake Worth, Florida. We'll have fun painting photos and creating a journal.
  • Workshop in Bruges, Belgium. Stay Tuned for details!
    ***********This 2014 workshop has been postponed. Don't give up though... the coordinator is working hard to make it happen in 2015! *********** I'm SO excited about teaching in Belgium! It will include photo walks in Bruges (Belgium's Little Venice of the North) where we'll explore, photograph and soak up the ambience of this beautiful city. We'll then paint and create with our photos and make an art journal filled with wonderful Belgium memories.

what an extraordinary rabbit trail! I got an Email from Stampington, noticed your artwork and looked you up online to see more artwork... only to find photos of Madre Giovanna & Suor Franca!!!! I used to live in that convent! My heart melted! I miss Orvieto so much! I'm was so happy to see their faces. Thank you so much for bringing joy to my day!


Please do an online ws for us working slobs.....


Your workshop looks wonderful. I´m so in love with your journals - which I was able to join the class - maybe some day...

Italy is waiting for you with an open heart! Something incredible always happens in beautiful Orvieto. Being surrounded by ancient inspiration profoundly affects the creative spirit. How lucky we are to have you return, DJ to lead your students in a week of artful adventures. We warmly welcome those who'd love to join you!

Wish I could join you again this year for sure...I hope you'll be back for NEXT year as well!! Give Mama Giovanna a kiss and hug for me, well as Kristin and Bill!! So many of your photos made me smile...I can remember where you took them...some of them, with me! They're all beautiful.
