Class Testimonials

Below are just a few of the lovely things people are saying about my classes...if you'd like to add yours, please fill out the form below

Paulette's class has truly changed my life. She taught me simple and creative ways to add more dimension to my art. I was so inspired by her class and her encouragement that I started painting every single morning. Now, I start my days by doing something special for me. Thank you Paulette! I can't wait to take the next one


What a gift you've given me...I've done all kinds of art, but I've always been afraid to paint. This class was a gentle introduction, taught in a clear and friendly manner. I feel now that this is just the beginning for me and I can see many, many hours of joyful painting in my future.


I have sooo enjoyed this class with you, Paulette!! You are such a fantastic teacher! I say this in all honesty: this is the best online class I have ever participated in. Thank you so much for your hard work and your willingness to share your techniques with all of us!



I have SO enjoyed learning your process, Paulette, and I think you make a marvelous and inspiring teacher.

Thank you sooooo much for a wonderful painting adventure! I am thrilled that I was able to finally learn how to draw and paint faces. I will continue to use my sketch book and my paints. You have done a wonderful job of teaching, encouraging and inspiring. I pray you will continue to use your talents to the glory of God. 


Paulette is an amazing teacher! She is fun to listen to and really lets her personality shine through as she teaches how enjoyable art can be. Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, I highly recommend her classes. You just may be happily surprised at your own innate abilities rising to the surface. Paulette helps encourage the artist to come out in all of us!

As someone who is VERY critical of my own work I am utterly surprised I can look at this and tell myself "you did a good job for your first ever attempt at painting". I'm amazed someone could tech ME to paint when I thought I would never be able to paint and I am utterly thankful to Paulette for empowering me like she has. At stages in the classes I wanted to bolt out the door and run to the hills...but I didn't. I'm even actually looking forward to painting more and drawing more. I'm also looking forward to seeing you Paulette in Australia in 2010 for the Creative Soul Retreat in Melbourne :o)

A huge thank you to Paulette for starting me on this wonderful journey of self-discovery. I did not know that I could draw, let alone paint before I started this class, and it has been a thrill to do each weeks exercise and get feed back from so many of you.
It has also been so encouraging to see how others are progressing on their artistic journey too, and a huge thanks for all the kind words along the way.
I shall miss this group so very much.
Hugs to all, and keep creating your wonderful girls!!


I want to thank you for your wonderful way of teaching, and for sharing your talents with us. I've learned so much and have all kinds of ideas floating around in my head that I want to try. I'm so excited!! I've got arthritis in my hands...probably from over 20 years of making rubber stamps. I want to retire from that soon, and paint full time. It has been a dream of mine for a long time. It will be easier on my hands too. The knowledge that I gained here is just what I needed. Again, thanks so much for sharing yourself with us. I wish only the best for your future!



I bless the beautiful teaching gift within you and I am indeed grateful to be able to avail myself of your experience, skill, PATIENCE and kindness. Working with people can be a challenge, guiding and directing them too. You Shine Girl! Thank You! May the Lord bless and increase all that He has placed within you. I can testify that your candle is not hidden under a bushel but shines brightly for all to see.



You are an amazing teacher and I think this is one of the best classes I have ever had. I am so happy with my progress. I've never painted before and I love my paintings. Thanks again.
