What is a possibilitarian?
I first saw the word ‘possibilitarian’ in a quote by Dr. Norman Peale: “Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities—always see them, for they’re always there.” I’ve been hooked on its meaning ever since. Do you see the bright light of your life’s horizon (even on the average days)? Do you feel its warmth (even when you’re struggling)? Have you begun to touch the surface of all that is possible for your life? Does it give you goosebumps to think about it (I hope it does)? If so, then you’re a possibilitarian, too.

Have you seen The Possibilitarian Project? Don’t miss it.

Do you teach workshops?
Yes, but I keep a limited teaching schedule. Please check out the Learn/Take Flight page as well as the news page for all upcoming workshops, online classes, events and more.  Also, be sure to sign up for the newsletter if you’d like to stay informed on a routine basis.

Where did you go to art school?
I didn’t attend art school! I have a graduate degree in clinical social work and worked for many years as a medical social worker before pursuing art full time. If you’d like to take a peek at my journey into art, visit my timeline of small steps.

Do you have any advice on how I can get started in my art career or how I can improve my creative business, such as online sales, and marketing?
As much as I’d like to offer specific information + support to each person who contacts me, it’s just not possible. However, I did create a series of e-books called Flying Lessons: Tips + Tricks To Help Your Creative Biz Soar where I answer, in detail, all the questions that come my way!

How do you create your original paintings?
Some of my favorite works include the use of acrylics, oils, patterned papers, music sheets, old buttons, charcoal, ink, stamps. If you’d like to know my specific techniques, then check out my book! Also, I’ve listed all of my favorite art supplies on the resource page.

Will you donate something to my fundraiser and/or help me spread the word about it?
Although I’d like to, it’s just not possible to donate something to everyone who reaches out with their cause/event. I privately support causes close to my heart.

Are you available for licensing?
Yes! Please contact me to start the conversation and get connected to my licensing agent. Also, check out my wholesale page for information on my current licensing partners.

I bought one of your ebooks (love it!). Can you tell me how I can read it on my iPad?

After that, open up iTunes and add it to the books folder (on the left hand sidebar). Then, sync your iPhone or iPad on your computer. After you’ve snyc’d your ipad/iphone, the ebook will be readable in your iBook app.

I don’t see that you have any original paintings for sale. When will you have more available and how much will they cost?
Periodically, I list new batches of paintings for sale in the shop. Please sign up for the newsletter if you’d like to be notified when new paintings (and other goodies) have been listed for sale. Prices for original paintings usually range from $100 – $1000, depending on the size and complexities of the painting.

The quality of your matted prints is fantastic! Do you make them yourself or do you have them printed elsewhere?
Using a professional Epson scanner and fancy printer, I print them myself. They are high quality, made using archival, fade-resistant inks on professional grade paper with a luster finish. Specifically, I use the Epson Perfection 4490 photo scanner and the Epson Stylus R3000 inkjet printer. If you’d like to learn more about what products I use, including the paper, head on over to this page where I share it all. 

Do your prints come in larger sizes?
At this time, my signed prints come in either 8×8 or 8×10 sizes only. However, please keep in mind that they arrive in a signed 11×14 mat. However, if you’re looking for my large wall art canvas reproduction line, you can find a variety of sizes that range from 6×6 to 18×24. You can find those at this online retailer.
