"Angie is like a mad scientist of creativity. Ask her about anything you’re working on and she’s able to slide right into the deep end of the pool with you and generate a zillion ideas that are so helpful you’d think she might have actually been a fly on your wall just waiting for you to ask for help."
- Jen Artz, Founder & Chief Troublemaker at Try Studio
I have previously shared my desire and my mission behind teaching workshops as a way to stay inspired and motivated by the arts. Once I quit my high demand ad sales career and making cool art became my full time gig, I knew burnout was inevitable. I wanted to develop a passion project to keep me excited and inspired in creating everyday. Thus the workshops were born.

Chalk Lettering for Beginners
Now rewind to April of 2017. I had the pleasure of meeting Jen Artz, the founder of Try Studio, at the maker's conference Craftcation in Ventura. What started out as an initial networking connection, developed into a deep bond over the DIY community, creative business ideas, iPad Pro’s, NPR programming, and baskets of salty taqueria chips.
I have teamed up with her to extend some of my chalk lettering workshops and classes through Try Studio. Jen did the most amazing write up of me that makes me feel so incredibly honored and thrilled to be included. I hope you check it out! You can read the full article here:
