In 2013, I found video tutorial on drawing a face taught by Jane Davenport. For so many years, I disliked my drawing because it was never “real enough.” I was blown away that by the end of this 30 minute class, I had drawn my first face. Not an actual person, but an imaginary gal drawn using basic human facial proportions, tweaked to be more whimsical. So excited at this Miraculous Jane, I googled her and found her online mixed media art classes.
I’ve taken countless online classes from Jane, Tamara Laporte, Tangie Baxter and so many others. My mixed media phase lasted from 2013 – late 2017. I still occasionally art journal and draw, primarily on my iPad. Here are some of my favorite mixed media works.
