Oh, how I wish there was an online class that delivered what I have planned
back when I was trying to figure all this overwhelming stuff out
at the beginning of my career as a Professional Artist.
I had no choice but to travel the world to seek out experts and play along with expensive trial and error.
I had to suffer the mistakes and disappointments that my lack of information delivered.
I cannot tell you how delighted I am to get this Workshop out into the world.
There is a real need for this information!
