Welcome to my studio, the candy-land of mixed media art. I’ve had the grace as a creative, making my living as a professional full time artist for over 25 years selling my paintings and sculpture. Along this journey I’ve taught and mentored many students.

I’m offering special small intimate classes, workshops and one on one sessions. My studio space is a place of creativity and a sanctuary for all who enter. I have created a series of of intimate classes for people to come create, experiment and learn for a day or a weekend. I am capable of teaching a variety of different classes because of my training and background with expressive arts and my career with mixed media. Some of the classes include The Way and Joy of the Painted Journal, Pigmenting Paper Workshops and specific mixed media techniques that I share in my Open Studio Sessions that I schedule once a month. 
I also am able to schedule one on one sessions and duets.
 
I am currently training as a i – rest Method of Integration teacher. I have already started sharing this method with clients which helps them to establish a calm way to clear their mind and a deeper connection with self which also allows the creative energy to flow easier. I schedule those as a private session in 2-4 hour process.

PIGMENTED PAPER WORKSHOP

Time 10am – 2pm

Come play and experiment making multiple sheets of your own pigmented paper. I will explain the different papers that I am familiar with that I use while creating in my studio. We will cover 3 different types of pigmented paper using mulberry paper which has a very durable fiber.
 
    1)  Mono printing which we will use old glazed butcher block cutting boards to print our papers.
    2)  Geli Plate printing is the new cool for creating interesting abstract or nature prints, endless ways to print multiple layers of color.
    3)  Batik resist is my newest of additions to my work with paper. It is the use of wax resist on paper or textiles to create one layer or multiple layers of color.
 
***Disclaimer: Paper pigmenting can be addictive and add a lot of joy to your life!***

One Day Workshop in Beautiful Leiper’s Fork, TN hosted byThe Copper Fox Gallery with teaching artist Lisa Jennings

Enjoy a day creating your own personal journal. We will start with a large sheet of paper that we will use creative printing techniques to print & paint the pages of your journal. Once the paper has been printed Lisa will show you how fold, cut and bind your pages into a finished journal with a plain binding that can be embellished with or without arty beads. The finished journal will measure 6.5” x 6.5” – 12 pages long.

I love using my handmade journals for gifts. People have used them to record a special trip, make baby book and or just a special place to record, add more art and or photos.
