Meet Francisca Nunes

I'm a mixed media artist, an explorer of the intuitive creative process.

I found in Art a way to combine my passions: botany, nature, and art. Using nature, color, texture, collages, doodles, and marks I explore my creativity and share it with other creative souls, through online classes and in-person workshops, and art retreats.

I believe that everyone is creative and that through Art Journaling and mixed media explorations we can unleash our inner voice without rules, judgments, or fears, in an intimate process of discovery of our own creative expression.

Meet Kristin Peterson

Kristin is a third-generation artist, originally from South Dakota.

She is always exploring and expanding the creative depths of being an artist.

Her style contains vibrance mixed with a little funk, which is sprinkled with discreet sensibility.
