Patience and demystifying art are my teaching super powers.

Macrame is back and in the coziest, most modern way possible! Learn this meditative art form from one of the countries leading macrame artists.

First, we will begin with a quick intro and what to expect from class. Then, I will lead your group through the macrame project from complete start to finish. Everyone will learn several macrame knots in order to design their very own wall hanging. Each person’s project will be unique, well crafted and ready to hang immediately after class!

My Background

I’m a teacher and professional artist.

I have a BFA in Industrial Design, a MA in Art Education, almost a decade teaching high school art, 5 years running a successful art business, 3 years as a graphic designer and 36 years as the daughter of an art teacher.

I am a full time art teacher, and I create large scale artwork for worldwide brands such as Starbucks and Nordstrom as well as private clients.

Most artists specialize in just one or two art forms, but I have experience and expertise in drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, macrame, printmaking, graphic design, photography, mixed media and collage. I am a certified art teacher, and I help thousands of students…

The Setup For the Virtual Session

I will be set up in my home art studio in Chicago. I have a dual camera set up including an overhead camera showcasing my workspace as well as a camera on me so I can still build face to face connections.
