"I've loved just going for it and, in doing so, my inner critic has quieted down a lot!! Doing the backgrounds freed me up considerably, and I have enjoyed all the practice I am doing for the flowers! I've wanted to do a class like this ever since I saw Miriam's delightful sunflowers!! I am so inspired by everyone's pieces and am just inspired to do it which is the best of all. Having so much fun!!"
~Deb Lund from Billings, MT
"When I’ve tried painting flowers in the past I tried too hard and my flowers looked "tortured.” This caused me to be very critical of my work, and hesitant to continue. After taking Garden Party, my drawing and painting both are looser, and I FEEL happier with my outcome! I really am proud of my paintings, especially my peonies and sunflowers. I think I've found my happy place with the mixture of mixed media and watercolor. I LOVED working in a series!!"

Learning new art techniques is a lot of work. Fortunately, there’s a shortcut to success. In Garden Party, I share secrets with you that have taken me years to learn and you also get support from a like-minded community. It helps you get creative, inspired, and more ideas for your art while learning the skills you need to gain more confidence.
Don’t waste time on the wrong art supplies or trying to copy other people's projects without a strong understanding of their process. Don’t waste money on bad strategy. Stay focused on sharing your story, knowing that what you learn in Garden Party will help you find your own voice as an artist.
"Before I took Garden Party, I struggled with trying to draw exactly what was before me. I was too tight in my drawings and didn't know how to simplify the shapes. I felt so uptight! Now, my mixed media florals are loose, exuberant, and fresh. I feel much, much more confident about painting. I am no longer intimidated... I just jump in and draw and paint and assume it will turn out fabulously. I learned how to have fun drawing and painting without worrying about how it’s going to look at the end. It was also great to learn how to use so many new mediums and supplies and the finished artwork is so appealing. I was excited with each new lesson! I think everything was wonderfully covered in this class and I am not feeling like I'm struggling any longer."

If your art has stagnated—or if you have no idea where to start—now is your time to change. It’s time to connect with your inner artist. It’s time to discover the joy that art can add back to your life. It’s time to finally take this much needed time for yourself which is just as important as exercise or eating right. What you put into your heart and mind feeds your soul.
And if you don’t think you have the time to master all this stuff, you’ll love Garden Party. Each video has been edited down to a soul filling 10 to 20 minutes--- who doesn't have 10 minutes to get inspired?
"I hesitated to sign up for this class because I used to struggle with finding time to create, and worried I wouldn't like the results of what I created. Also, I've never painted flowers over a mixed media background before taking Garden Party.
Now I enjoy painting a lot more and want to do more of it! You learn new techniques, you can work at your own pace, and you have a community of other artists to share your art with. They will offer suggestions and praise too. And it's forever! I loved learning from a professional like Miriam. I now feel that I, too, am an artist."

You have abandoned your creative side for too long, but right now you are ready to enter the more creative phase of your life.
Between all the art supplies, online videos, and everything else, you just don’t know what to do next...and you are overwhelmed... and maybe even a little bit frustrated.
The good news? The content inside Garden Party will simplify your next steps by showing you:
No more confusion. No more feeling overwhelmed. Just more inspiration and skills to make your creative dreams real.
Plus, you’ll be surrounded by other artists cheering you on, all sharing insights from their experience.
"I wasn’t sure if I would time to actually do the lessons, but I decided to sign up because I love mixed media and flowers. Before taking this class I struggled with shading and I was frustrated because my petals always looked flat. After taking Garden Party my flowers are much more multi-dimensional and I feel confident about my drawing and painting skills. I learned a lot and had fun in the process. I would recommend this class to a friend because it's a very accessible class. The lessons were easy to follow and understand and the techniques I learned actually improved my art."
