Spice Stories

I’m also enjoying sticking my sketches on the wall, like little bits of me, the parts that I like and the parts I don’t. I’m listening to the inner child who just wants to play and trying to ignore the judge.
Thanks, Nino and everyone, for inspiring me to get back into the art kitchen!
- Josefina Zorrilla


Spice Art Club has changed my life! 
Before spice I would sit on YouTube and watch all your videos over and over. Then came the opportunity for a direct line to you! You have no idea how grateful I am and how much I've learned, but continue to learn from you.
- Hayley Gecelter


I love the variety and especially appreciate being able to go to recordings when I am able. I work full time and can't always attend live events.
- Barbara Weber


This is my favorite type of lesson - it helps me - to hear you consider changes, what you are thinking, and how relates to design and what you do and show/talk about what happens - thank you, Nino!
- Debra Stanis


Last Friday's session has been really freeing me up, a lot of my fears have disappeared since then, thank you and the Club!
- Benedicte Allee

An intimate community of artists in his group and is developing a series of mini-workshops within the membership-one of which is about using acrylic paint markers. After watching it, I finally got some big markers and experimented with them a bit today. He's got a lighthearted but diligent approach to art-making that resonates with me.
- Darla Myers

Wonderful - It is meditative and you use colors I would not think to put together and they look great. Very inspirational. Since the sketching demo - I started sketching daily and love it. 
Thank you!
- Debra Stanis

I can watch this for hours! It’s as exciting as a nice film on Netflix!
- Loes van de Ridder

I have been a member of Spice Art Club for a little over a year. In this safe place, as a beginning artist, I am learning daily about process over results and how to just post my artwork for accountability, letting go of more results. So much generosity and support from my Spicey Art Pals!
- Vicki Seastrom

I love the encouragement and sharing that takes place in this community. I also get a lot out of the feedback sessions and am enjoying the videos you've created. I'm still rather new to the group and haven't had the time I'd like to devote to exploring more of the site. There's a wonderful sense of playfulness here too! 
- Karen Miraldi

I feel I have more confidence when throwing the paint around (on the canvas, I mean). The paint on the floor, well that has always been there. I am less judgmental of my work. Just letting it flow. Also working in shorter bursts of time so I stop earlier before I have created mud. That alone was a huge step forward.  I was always ruining everything by overpainting & not letting it dry between layers.
- Nancy Fern

I have learned to trust myself. I have learned to simplify. I could go on, I have 100 good things to say, but I am trying to simplify. haha.
- Mia Stilwell Hinchey

About me

With 27 years of experience as an artist and designer, I've had the joy of working with so many talented product designers and artists. 

Throughout my career, I've created digital software products that blend technical functionality with heartfelt emotion. 

But, like many, I hit a creative roadblock. I struggled with a lack of inspiration, losing my unique perspective and motivation. It made working confidently in my studio a real challenge. 

After lots of trial and error and reconnecting with my design roots, I found practices that reignited my motivation and breathed new life into my art, making it vibrant and meaningful again. 

Now, I'm excited to share what I've learned and help you find your own inspiration. 

Together, we can transform your artistic practice, rekindle your creative spirit, and tap into your unapologetically curious, childlike wonder. 

My mission is to help you feel truly inspired in your work, embracing your unique self, creating authentic pieces that last, and finding peace and joy in the process. 

Let's embark on this creative journey together!

Experiment often, and be your true self.
Get clear on your WHY. If you don’t know your WHY, keep working anyway.

Share your point of view.
Quiet down your heart, and listen to your intuition.
Your art is your story. Say it authenticity.
You have it in you!
You are uniquely beautiful; paint that!
Turn it upside down, or let it sit for a while.
It’s only paint.
Be kind, and give more.
Take your practice seriously, don’t take yourself too seriously
Incremental progress.
Perfection is not what you’re looking for.
