It's Time to Take Time For YOU
Again and again we are seeing it- a growing to-do list, increasing pressures in home and work, and an urgency to get it all done by a real or imagined deadline. The daily stress leads to decreased satisfaction in life, physical illness, and in extreme cases, hospitalization and burnout.
We all know the cure for this- "a real and lasting lifestyle change", but many of us just don't know if that's possible or where to start. Let's start here and NOW.

What Others Are Saying
"I just viewed the drawing and the inking videos and they are fantastic! For someone like myself, who has told herself, "I can't draw!", the lesson gives a meaningful, simple, and highly instructional first project. I love the sketch feature, and how clearly you explain things. I think you have a winner here!"
