Blog No More

Dear Artists' and Friends,

If you received extra emails from my blog over the last couple days, sorry. It was a technical glitch. I've been going through my blog removing posts and making edits. 

I'm going to stop posting on my blog. Why? My artwork and instruction is being lifted and used elsewhere (without permission). I'll leave selected posts here. Going forward all new material from me will come in the form of a newsletter from my website.  If you wish to receive art tips, inspirations, workshop updates... you'll need to sign up for my newsletter on my website. I'll send out one email a month (or less). Just like I use to do here on my blog.

How do you sign up? Visit my website  you'll see EMAIL NEWSLETTER.  Enter your information and click SUBMIT. You'll automatically receive updates about once month.

Thank you, 



  1. what a shame you have to waste precious creative time on those who are so disrespectful!

  2. I did sign up for the newsletter. So sorry for your angst. How frustrating.

  3. A pity about what has happened. I have signed up.

  4. I am so sorry to hear your news! Looking forward to the newsletter. Thanks for sharing your lovely art. My best wishes ��!

  5. So sorry to hear you have become a victim of the thieves who steal from artists. Hope you get these issues resolved soon. I look forward to your new newsletter.

  6. I feel ya. I had this happen to my good running flickr account back then. I mostly did photography and later found my pics in travel catalouges, without my permission or even citing. That killed photography for me.
