Want to create your own beautiful glass art and don’t know where to start? Tired of endlessly searching Pinterest or YouTube for help only to be more confused than ever?

I get it!!  There is so much confusing information out there and it can be so overwhelming!  Where do I find glass?  What resin should I use?  How do I cut glass?  

I totally know what you’re going through!  I was there 9 years ago when I discovered glass art and there was no one to help me or guide me.  As an artist with a passion for teaching and years of experimentation, I decided to do what I love and help other women overcome the hurdles and work with them to find their true creative potential! 

So what if you could skip all the headaches and get started creating today?!

No more wasting time and money because you don’t have the proper skillset or know the correct techniques to use!

No more wondering how to set up your space for resin art- whether it’s a dedicated space or a small corner!

No more wondering what products or colors to use!
