Join Bloom and Fly – Move Forward with an Inspiring Community!

Bloom and Fly is a community for you who wants to explore visual and adventurous ideas, get feedback and suggestions for your art, and connect with like-minded art enthusiasts. We have a private Facebook group, monthly themes, live sessions, and weekly opportunities for practical help and feedback.

Bloom and Fly is geared for those who have been creating for some time. It doesn’t offer regular step-by-step walk-throughs where everyone creates the same project. You will get ideas, tips, and process photos around the monthly theme but if you are a beginner, buy one of my self-study classes (for example, Inspirational Drawing 2.0) to accompany your membership!

Registration is now open for Spring season (April – June 2018): Sign up here!

    Your work is beautiful! I am so happy you bring these works to life and share them with us. Painting in your style will probably never be my way of expressing what is inside of me, but I find so much in it to love and learn from, it enhances what I am able to do.

      Thank you, Jakki!! We all have our personal styles and approaches. That’s what makes art and learning from each other so interesting!
