    Wonderful interview – thank you for sharing. I never heard of Diebenkorn – didn’t even know how to spell his name – but will definitely check him out……and maybe use more triangles. Look forward to your book – it sounds fabulous!

    Loved listening to this – not only was it full of great tips on how to get inspired, it was just enjoyable to learn more about Jimmy and to hear his funny stories. If you’re in an art rut or just need some positive vibes, I recommend listening to this :) And a note for Jimmy: I would absolutely be interested in watching a video series about a cross country bike trip / sketching / laundry conserving / Artful Adventure so get your go pro’s ready for your summer trip!

Jumping with Pam Carriker – A Video Conversation

A couple days ago I had a great chat with Mixed Media Artist Pam Carriker. We talked about why it seems that a lot of Mixed Media Artists decided later in life to become artists, what a day in the life of Pam looks like, why she loves to combine wet and dry paint media and her thoughts on how substituting art supplies adds a little bit more of you into your work.

    I need to reach you on your email but I don’t have your email address. Could you please send it me? I still cannot log in. It does not recognize either my ID or my password. I really need help to be able to attend the Mayfair workshop. Could you possibly help me find a way to start over with my account
    and change it?

    Thank you for your help.

      Dear vicki you did not seem to have ever signed up for the class! If that is indeed the case you simply have to purchase it and sign up and create new user account when you check out . If you have purchased the class and my assumption you haven’t is wrong contact me through the contact form let me know your transaction number or order confirmation number, so I can help you from there! You are talking in one of your comments about a “Mayfair ” workshop ! I am not sure if you might be onnthe wrong website? This is Creative Jumpstart not Mayfair. Hope we can sort it out but not through comments!

    I am interested in creative jump for 2017 but I am n0t sure on a couple of things. I guess it has already stated and I just heard about it just to day. How would I catch up? Do I understand correctly that I will have free access to all video?

Jumping with Joe – A Video Conversation

I had the pleasure to video chat with Joe Rotella  and we talked about his creative process, how he envisions a story for each of his pieces and how he looks at different material to create certain parts of the story.

By the way ….sometimes it takes several takes to just do the intro for a video- check out how Joe and I giggle silly about me not being able to pronounce anything right
