My Skillshare Classes

I've always had a passion for sharing my design and creative business knowledge with others and I find there's no better way to do that than online classes. I strive to highlight important and sometimes underserved aspects of design to help you gain confidence in your skills.

If you'd like to know when my next class debuts or are interested in creative business tips & resources, please subscribe to my newsletter.


NEW: Sketching for Surface Designers & Illustrators

Sketching regularly is one of the best ways to drastically improve your design skills, develop your style, and build your creative confidence. In this class, I share everything from how to draw anatomically correct faces to two separate methods of finding your unique style.


Finding Buyers for Your Art

Reaching out to potential clients is one of the best ways to grow your surface design business. I show you how to not only find companies to work with, but how to find the right contacts to email.

Creating Strong Coordinate Patterns

Having strong coordinating repeats are important, but secondary patterns are often glossed over quickly. In this mini class, I give you strategies you can easily apply to your own pattern portfolio.


Stronger Patterns Made Easy

I'll show you simple ways to improve a design step-by-step, using actual patterns from my students. And each video is a self-contained tutorial, so you can learn each technique in 3-9 minutes flat. 

Pattern Recipes

I've developed lots of tricks to squeeze more time out of my design schedule and one of my absolute favorites is pattern recipes. I save myself hours of work for every instance where I reuse them.
