I HIGHLY recommend your Hot Wax class to anyone who has even the slightest interest!
You are an excellent instructor, and don't hold back anything.
Your instructions are clear, understandable, and geared for every level. ---Linda

I just want to commend you for the great videos. I have been doing encaustics since the spring
and have read "everything" i can find as well as watching DVDs and videos.
Your videos seem to have a way of putting it all together for me and I can now go forward with more confidence.
I can't thank you enough for making this available to us. ---Patricia

I can't even tell you how wonderful this online class has been. You said you
were going to share years and years of experience with us in these few weeks -- who knew that
you were really telling the truth! This has been the best, most value filled, most information filled
online class I have ever taken! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing
this class with all of us. -----Laura

Your class is absolutely amazing, jam packed full of info, so much so that it is mind blowing! ---Roberta

I have had an interest in encaustic for a few years and could never seem to
get things flowing. This course which I found purely by accident has helped me finally move forward.
For this I am grateful and full of excitement to take off and explore this new chapter of painting
in my life. I have learned so much and it shows in my new encaustic paintings.
Thank you for the inspiration and the many tips that have helped me create again. ---- Pamela

I've never taken an online course before, and had a bit of trepidation that it wouldn't
be as much fun as an 'in person' class. But this has been more wonderful than I could have predicted!
I'm addicted :) Thanks for your clear, concise explanations and wonderful inspiration.
I love being able to work on my own in the comfort of my own home. ----- Ruth

Even though I have been doing encaustics for a while now I am finding new techniques or tips in every topic. ---Patricia

As I mentioned in my last post, I am loving this class and found that you certainly held true in your promise
to wow us with information.Thank you so much for hosting such a class event! ---Laurie

Your course in hot wax is a treasure trove of techniques, ideas, the broadening of ones tools and direction
but most importantly is the language of creativity and following ones passion. ----Rebecca
