Virtual Mentoring Sessions

Artist Mentorship Sessions: Unlock Your Creative Potential


Who Are These Sessions For?


If you’re an encaustic artist who has invested time in developing skills, taken courses, shared your work online, and participated in exhibitions but still feels the need for support to elevate your artistic voice and professional presence, my Artist Mentorship Sessions are designed for you. Drawing from my two decades of experience as a professional artist and workshop instructor, I understand the challenges artists face. Like you, I once lacked direction and didn’t feel fully professional until I found a mentor. With their guidance, I gained discipline, accountability, and valuable critiques, which propelled my career forward. Inspired by my own journey, I began offering short mentor meetings during my workshops where students discovered their voices, asked the right questions, and experienced transformative results. Mentoring is a collaborative process where mentees actively contribute to their growth and development.
