“The things I learned in the workshop about creativity, expression, control and practice, all have great relevance to my life as a whole. Deb did more than just pass on artistic technique. I feel she laid the groundwork for an understanding of how I can let go and enjoy being creative!” ~Sarah E. Vancouver, BC

“Deb Chaney's workshop was wonderful because it helped rejuvenate my inspiration in my art. She explained a technique, showed you how to do it and then let you explore on your own. What I loved was that I left with an abundance of information and examples to take home so that I could continue what I learned.”
