Do you find the process of growing your art practice overwhelming, uninspiring and unsustainable?
You are not alone.
As a member of the Spice Art Club, you can reduce art practice overwhelm, feel inspired and receive support from fellow art entrepreneurs as you build your sustainable practice.
This is A SAFE space for creativity, imagination, and sustainable art practice from inside my studio.
It's about creating joy in our everyday art practice.
Incremental movement and consistency. I believe that the act of our art-making is more sacred than the art itself.
This membership will offer monthly lessons with live demonstrations, bite-size inspirations, and a community of supporting like-minded artists to back you up. We'll learn together, we grow together!
I will show you:
- Inspiration behind my mark-making
- Techniques and exercises to sharpen our design skills
- My juicy color mixing techniques
- How I produced my sketchbook
- How I troubleshoot my paintings
- My art-making stages from the beginning, middle, and the end
- Basically everything you want to know about my practice. :)
- And occasional fun art videos.
Who is it for?
Who this is NOT for:
- Not recommended for anyone who values competition over the community.
- Not recommended for artists who are completely content with their current practice and don't need the help of inspiration to develop their practices.
- Not recommended for perfectionists, procrastinators, and overthinkers.
- Not recommended for artists who took themselves and their art too seriously.
This Membership is great for you if you are:
- Missing that creative spice that makes you come alive.
- Looking for inner peace, endurance, and a feeling of abundance.
- Love to be part of a supportive and uplifting community of like-minded creative people.
- Ready to sharpen your mark-making, colors, and composition design skills to the next level.
- Hungry to find, strengthen and nurture your unique creative voice.

Is this suitable for beginners or advanced artists?
This course is perfect for anyone feeling like they need some spice back in their creative practice. My 5 creative stages will serve both beginners and advanced artists alike. This is a continuous practice to help us grow our intuition and artistic muscle memories.
Will I need new art supplies?
If you've already been making acrylic art you'll possibly have these already. Here are my go-to supplies: Montana markers, Posca markers, Lukas Acrylic or any acrylic paints, soft pastels of any brand, Chip Flat brush from a home improvement store, Tupperware buckets, shop towel, to name a few. I will supply you with the list when you're in the club.
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!

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
Last Friday's session has been really freeing me up, a lot of my gears 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.
- 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!

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.

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
I have been a visual designer and artist for over 24 years. Creating alongside other talented product designers and artists alike, honing my skills in shipping digital products and giving them some souls.
For the past four years, I became aware of a problem I've been experiencing that challenged the effectiveness of my creative practice. A "spiceless" art practice.
It was a practice where I didn't know where I'm going and why. I didn't have my voice or point of view about my work. It was hard to visit my studio because I had no confidence and vision.
Most importantly I had lost my motivation.
I began searching for answers that would free me to make work that would rebuild my motivation.
I have tried and tested my findings and I'm so excited to use what I know to help you find your very own spice. This is why I'm so excited to share what I know with you!

Quiet down your heart, listen to your intuition.
Your art is your story. Say it authenticity.
You have it in you!

It’s only paint.
Be kind, give more.
