Painting With Intention, trying new things, and having fun, too

I learn something new with each and every creative painting and project I start; fresh new experiences with new opportunities to play, and expand. Sometimes the success in a piece is simply to have done the process, and sometimes my creations are successful in that they also find homes with buyers who appreciate my vision and effort.

I paint with intention. I teach with intention.
What does that mean?

My intentions, when I paint are:
• to have fun
• to create something beautiful
• to grow as an artist
• to learn something
• and by learning be able to be a better teacher
• I teach with the student’s goals top of mind so they can paint with their own intentions

All of my paintings come with the story of what inspired me and why I chose to create the art. There are also artist tips in most of the stories.

See and learn more at:
• articles
• newsletter
• videos
• tips & techniques
• free classes
• special class offers

Message me with your questions.

What else?

I am inspired by nature, natural structure and geometry in all subjects that interest me, with the intention of creating visual movement and emotion. My goal is to create intentional paintings that tell a story via all the techniques and thought processes that I have learned and am still learning. If a viewer of my work feels pulled in to the image and feels something, I have been successful. I also experiment with new ideas and methods to expand what I appreciate and know, and also because I am a teacher, and want to encourage all types of painters.

I teach fine art thinking through my art teaching & coaching programs, Painting With Intention, with a goal of helping frustrated artists discover their deeper emotional and spiritual vision and express it in their paintings with ease, using thought processes of the Old Masters of art, understanding the visual language, and unencumbered by blocks and self-doubt.

Many of the Old Masters of Art knew amazing secrets about how to convey feelings through their brushwork and composition, much of which has become lost, simply because they didn’t write about their most profound knowledge. I learned how to see these secrets, am developing my own ability in this way, and love to teach other artists how to see and use these ways of creating illusions in 2-dimensional painting.

I also enjoy drawing and created Celtic art rubber stamps as Highlander Celtic Stamps beginning in 1997 and continuing to this day. With the blossoming interest in coloring, I created Celtic Coloring books and cards. To see and purchase these artist tools please visit my other Etsy shop: HighlanderStamps

Gift wrapping and packaging

Small paintings are carefully wrapped and boxed for safe shipment. I would be happy to gift-wrap the box for you, before placing in the shipper box. I would also be happy to include a gift card with your message upon request.

Large paintings require more packaging and may or may not be practical to gift wrap. Please inquire with the specific piece of artwork you are interested in for details on what I can do for you regarding gift wrapping.

International shipping information

I welcome your inquiry regarding shipment of my art to your location. We would need to have a conversation about packaging, cost, and the service required for you to receive my larger pieces.

I don’t have international shipping turned on in the listings for art larger than 12” in any direction due to the cost, which can be quite high, for Priority Mail International or FedEx.

I have shipped to 20 countries including: Canada, Scotland, Ireland, England, Europe, Australia, New Zealand.

Please start a conversation with me regarding the specific piece of art your art interested in having shipped internationally.

Thank you!
