Summer 2019
Small Group Workshops on Salt Spring Island.


Friday, June 28
Image Transfer with Hand Painted Enhancements  10am-5pm $125

With even the lightest  touch of your own hand, a photograph becomes a one of a kind work of art. Using your images, we’ll make several small, elegant photo transfer prints on fine art paper, then practice enhancing them with watercolors, pencils and chalk pastels.

Sunday, June 30
Using Hot and Cold Wax with Photographs    10am-5pm  $125

Summer is a perfect time to play with beeswax. With the help of the warm sun, and a few other wonderful tools and techniques, we’ll  apply hot or cold wax to photographs to create beautiful finishes that also seal and protect the images. Also, we’ll practice ways to use the wax creatively, taking the photographs to completely new level,  making each one unique.    


Space is limited in each workshop. To register, please use the contact form to send me an email.

Image Transfer

This is a fun, hands-on, alternative method of making photographic prints.
Part skill, part creativity, and part serendipity, no two finished transfers will ever
be alike. The possibilities are endless.
We’ll practice putting your images on a variety of surfaces including wood, paper and fabrics. You will leave with with lots of hand made treasures, and detailed step by step notes. Session includes all materials and detailed notes.

Hand Painting Digital Prints

Learn to take your images to the next level, with the personal touch of your own hand. Hand-painting is an inspiring collaboration between artist and image. With the first few simple strokes, an image takes on greater depth, and the heart of the author begins to emerge.

I’ll demonstrate the techniques I’ve developed over the past 30 years of applying texture and color to digital photographs, using acrylic paints, pastels, pencils and watercolor. Then, you’ll have time to practice what you learn with support available throughout the session.

You don’t need prior painting experience for this workshop. All materials are provided except for prints. Instructions for prints will be given at signup.

1 day, private instruction: $350 + gst / Small groups 2-4: $185 pp 

2 days private instruction: $550 +gst / Small groups 2-4: $350 pp


Ten Things 

One by one, and one on one, we’ll explore 10 key things that I believe help to create evocative images that effectively communicate the vision of the photographer.
The lasting take-away is a clarifying awareness and approach to act as a new “lens” to add to your set of tools!

$150 +gst Private session 3+ hrs. / Small groups 2-4 $125 +gst pp
