to Create an inspiring collection of artwork,

Discover and Refine your own artistic style, 

Improve your creative thinking and

Build Confidence  in your art practice.


You're feeling stuck in your art practice or just looking for a new way to express yourself?

In the vast world of abstract art, do you want to find your unique voice?

You love to work with different materials but find it difficult to bring it all together to create a successful composition?

I think we all know such times when we want to start something new and don’t know where to start. Every now and then we come to a point where we need inspiration that hopefully leads us to new ideas.

But often it’s a huge challenge to find a new direction.

How to get inspired is very individual. But I think the process of being stimulated comes from taking action first

In this course I will show you various starting points and I will guide you step by step through different techniques from working with mark making tools such as pencils, pigment sticks, graphite through to acrylic ink, paper collage and paint. We’re letting the materials and techniques develop and enjoying the process of making.

And we will use all of these explorations to create a beautiful accordion book filled with
interesting marks, colors, and collages that you can use as a source of inspiration for your future work.

“Unlock Your Creativity” is all about exploring and playing with your art materials to spark ideas and find your own new path ways to develop your praxis.

Dear Lydia, I just completed your “Unlock Your Creativity” course and am so eager to discipline myself to make time every day to be creative and have fun. You are a wonderful teacher and so generously share your skills and knowledge. Thank you.

Here’s what you you’ll get when you join

The course is divided into 15 video lessons (including1 bonus lesson) and instructions.

I loved this class so much: I like how you speak of moving toward what we like, to play and explore with it; to ask questions and keep going in that direction. Surprisingly, It is not a message that we hear so often in art teachers.  And I really love, In your examples, your use of space and white in the compositions. Dynamic and inspiring. Thank you!!
