Are you exploring or returning to art? Colored pencils offer a hassle-free entry point. Perfect for busy schedules, they became my creative outlet during my corporate job.

Have you ever wasted money on art supplies that didn't work?  Felt lost after endless Google searches? I've been there. Disregard the myth that creators are born. I am telling you everyone has the potential to create.

Join my beginner-colored pencil course about pet portraiture on Skillshare. You will gain confidence in selecting your art supplies, learn how to use them properly, learn how to find or create a good reference photo and learn to draw what you see. 

I would love it if you would let me come on your creative journey.

Imagine if you could create a special pet portrait for a friend, a family member, or yourself? Or, what about getting your first commission?

The course is for you if you are new to colored pencil and don’t want to spend time trying to figure out what supplies will work or how to get good results.


This course is for you if your time to create is at a premium and you don’t want to be bothered with a medium that requires extensive set up and tear down leaving you little time to actually create.


This course is for you if you are looking for a medium that can be meditative and will be something you come to again and again to relax.

This course is for you if you are looking to learn a new art medium and don’t want to invest a lot of money in art supplies.


This course is not for you if you are looking for a medium that produces quick results. Patience is everything when it comes to working in colored pencil. Layers of colored pencil bring a drawing to life.
