With Stephey for Nature Journaling, or in graphite, pen & ink, watercolor painting + mixed media

Let’s get creative together! We’ll connect privately online where I will provide all the step-by-step video instructions needed to achieve your creative goal(s), increase your artistic skills, find your creative voice and connect you to that quiet peaceful place within you.

Nature will be our steadfast guide and source of inspiration —whether you’re a seasoned artist or just now returning to art having left it in childhood—all levels welcomed.

Styles and skillsets can range from impressionistic to the more classically realistic and technical demanding skills of contemporary Botanical Art.

Tutoring is offered in your choice of media such as graphite, water-soluble graphite, pen, and ink, mixed media and watercolor painting.

Topics of focus are relevant to you and what you’d like to experience on your creative journey.

Looking forward to learning of your creative goals and how I can support them coming to fruition! It’s exciting to realize, “I made that?!”

All My Best,

and that voice will be silenced.”

Learn in a Private One-On-One Setting

Slow down and let go of that laundry list of to-dos and reconnect to that quiet peaceful place within—if just for a moment. I will guide you step-by-step as we work together to start your 1st Nature Journal or continue to tend to one you’ve already started. Renew your creativity and spirit as Nature guides and inspires us along the way. No drawing experience required. The purpose of Nature Journaling isn’t to create pretty pictures, it’s about observing what you’re exploring, indulging your curiosities, and being open to the beauty of the natural world. Drawing skills automatically increase if you focus on maintaining a connection to Nature and consistently record what’s inspiring you–today.)
