Free or pay what you want.

You may join the live session for free, or pay what you want. Proceeds benefit the scholarship fund. Together we have helped artists who face financial adversity, those in marginalized communities who are underrepresented in our fiend, and women helping women. Thank you for going above and beyond with me!


In this session, I will cover the different types of nibs and together we will answer the question:

What is this tool designed for and what else can it do?

I want you to know the anatomy of each nib and the marks each makes so you can have command and control over the tool.

Who is this session for?

  • Professionals who use Neuland markers and want a refresher or are just learning about a new tool to them: like the BigOne Art or FineOne Flex (my two favorite).
  • Visual Practitioners (seasoned or new-to-the-field) working in any size: from sketchbooks to wall charts and everything in between.
  • Calligraphers who have wondered how to use these tools in their work.
  • Anyone who stumbled across this page and is thinking, "What the heck!?!!"

Upon registration, you will receive:

  • A confirmation email and invitation to join the live Zoom call on July 11.
