I am so grateful as an artist to teach workshops. I am thrilled that people come to my home and meet me and partake in 2-3 days of working with me in my studio, seeing all I have to offer and teach. It is an exciting and creative time. The first couple of minutes we all get to know each other… and then I am off and running! Pouring out important information about waxes and paints, substrates and photography…
I was fortunate enough to meet Jamie Gordon through her good friend Hope Kahn and my boss/partner in Waxworks Photo, Susan Beard. The universe brought us together for a workshop and we are still working together 3+ years later. I go to Jamie’s home now and occasionally she comes to my studio. For the most part I teach in-home tutorials to Jamie twice a month. We work on the computer, we edit, we print and we wax and paint.
During the summer months, we take photographs together and I assist her on her shoots and she lets me shoot the same models. It works out nicely. I have watched Jamie grow as a mixed media artist and photographer and couldn’t be happier for her as she gains international recognition, showing her work regularly in China.
This winter was particularly long and cold yet productive. I wanted to share these pieces she produced this winter during our sessions together. I live to teach and I really like the one on one aspect of it all. I enjoy the intimacy of the sessions and the personal attachment that comes with spending quality, creative time with someone… making art, diving into the need to self express, experimenting always with the elements of photography, painting and encaustics…
If anyone is interested in an in-home art class please let me know!
