Filling up the pages of a sketchbook is a powerful experience. Sometimes the hardest part is carving out the time and knowing where to begin. But with each lesson in my Sketchbook Journey course you will build confidence, skills, inspiration and ideas to carry with you for a lifetime in many sketchbook journals to come.

The course begins with some basics and as we go through the pages we will be exploring more ways of expression and connection through art journaling.

Hi, I’m Katharine

I love all things nature and color and creative.

Art became a source of healing and escape in my youth when I was going through some health issues. It has never been that I was naturally talented at art, but I have always been drawn to it, compelled to create and find comfort and expression through the act of observing and taking the time to reflect on a page.

I graduated from Elon University with a major in Studio Art with a concentration in Painting in 2003. I have always loved creating and connecting with nature through art, observations and exploring.

I spent most of my adult life in New Orleans before moving back to North Carolina (where I'm from) for a quiet existence in the mountains which has been such a beautiful transition for me and my work. I also try to make time to travel and take my studio and work on the road throughout the US, painting and exploring as I go. Since moving back to North Carolina most of my adventures have been just a walk out the front door.

I love connecting with you, please feel free to reach out and I will get back to you shortly!
