Hello! And thanks for checking out my art classes! I run several art classes online each year, and once they stop running live, they are available on DVD or in a self study group (from where you can download all the lessons)! You will always get access to the self study group, so when you buy a DVD you don’t have to wait for it to arrive in the mail, you can start on your course within 24-48hrs (as soon as I’ve had a chance to sign you up to the self study group).
Please note that signing you up to the class groups is a manual process and it may take up to 48 hours to send you your invite depending on if it’s a weekday or weekend (I try not to work weekends so I can spend time with my family). Also pls note, I am UK based so the time difference may mean I am asleep while you are awake. Thanks for your understanding!

Business the Willowing Way – Since I first started running my business in late 2008, my business has grown into a flourishing and very successful 6-figure business. I’ve learned an incredible amount about how to run an effective, joyful, ethical, successful and prosperous business and I really want to share all that I’ve learned with entrepreneurs who are trying to set up their own online art business or entrepreneurs who already have a business and are looking to refine their business strategies.
