"I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the clarity of your teaching methods. So much detailed information and I was over the moon when my husband looked at my very first practice page and said “oh, those are beautiful stones”. So I am going to frame this and use it for motivation. Thank you so very much for sharing your knowledge and for allowing us hobby artists to learn. I am delighted to be connected with you."

Birgit! "You are amazing master of painting enriching our minds, hearts and imagination with your art." Thank you, Zlatica Stauder


Dear Birgit, "I recently purchased your Rocks, Sand and Sea Glass course. It was an absolutely fun and educating program and I have enjoyed watching it several times over the past months. I have also developed a few paintings from your ideas and have been extremely pleased with the results. Thanks so much for your insight. You have a wonderful way of teaching and making the concepts easy to follow. I always keep a "rock/sand" picture running in the studio, working on shells and other additions to make the painting look more interesting. It is a lot of fun". Bob Field


Hi Birgit "I am a retired art, elementary, and Montessori teacher with over 30 years experience. I tried other classes but I think I've learned the most from Birgit's online courses. I love the feedback she gives, it's way more than I have received before. I find it so valuable. I look forward to doing more". Jann Clare
