Do the insides of your mind sound like this?

Why does everyone else make it look so easy?…

… and everyone else’s paintings are so vibrant and loose! 

How do they do it? Where do I even start? 

Are there any rules? What materials work together, or dont? 

I feel like there’s so much to learn and it's overwhelming. 

I know this “comparison game” isn’t doing me any good, but… how do I stop? 

How can I learn to go with the flow and enjoy the process?  


You are not alone.

Here’s how I know.

Over the past 20 years of teaching my art courses to thousands of students, I’ve come to realize that there are several core issues blocking them creatively or keeping them from enjoying their painting time to the fullest.

Here are the three main issues expressed by my art students: 


№ 1: Loosening Up

A lot of art students struggle to go with the flow, especially at first. In essence, they’re worried about doing something wrong, and they’re struggling to fully embrace the wondrous possibilities of “happy accidents.” 


№ 2: Comparing Themselves to Others

We’re social creatures, so it can be hard to turn off the comparative (and competitive) parts of our brain. We don’t want to be judged, especially not for personal expressions like painting— so it’s incredibly important to have a safe, positive, judgment-free learning environment. 


№ 3: Infusing Their Art with Joy and Play

Even if we get comfortable with the artistic process, we can easily find ourselves focused on “reaching the destination” of the painting rather than enjoying the journey it offers. The people who most enjoy painting enjoy it in the moment, and that’s where true joy and playfulness can open up in your art.

Don't worry...

EVERYONE can learn to work with acrylic inks.

I've created Jump into Acrylic Inks to help you grow your artistic confidence with this exciting, flexible medium.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Embrace spontaneity and explore with playful curiosity

       (instead of doubting your every move)

  • Ease into flow state, slow down and allow your intuition to guide you naturally

       (so you can stop comparing & find your own creative voice)

  • Welcome the opportunity to try new directions when happy accidents happen

       (instead of throwing your work in the trash)

  • Blend tools and materials together in innovative ways

       (throw out the rule book instead!)

  • Find the magic in your process and your life!

      (and clear that negative, judgy inner critic)


You'll feel like:

♥ You (will always) have enough inky techniques and inspiration to confidently and copiously create art

♥ Your biggest “problem” is now too much inspiration

♥ Every mark you make opens a new doorway to more playful curiosity and wonder in your creativity

♥ You can relax and enter the flow state more easily whilst making art

♥ You can stop thinking in terms of “mistakes” and start embracing the idea of “happy accidents”


“I’ve admired Tracy’s devotion to teaching for YEARS. Tracy is a beautiful and generous soul and a wonderful artist, and she has a special gift for teaching visual art to people who don’t consider themselves ‘visual artists’.

“Tracy, you are a gift. Thank you for this day. I’m going to sleep with my fingernails caked with paint and my imagination full of color.”

Hi, I’m Tracy!

I've been teaching students to loosen up and find joy through art for more than 20 years. 

When I was a kid, I believed that art was a special gift given only to a select few people at birth. In my family, it was my brother Jason who seemed to have that magic art gene; he would spend hours sprawled on the floor sketching and, whenever I tried to do the same, my work would inevitably end up in the bin. 

But when I was 33, I joined a local art class and my whole world shifted. 

Within two weeks, I had the epiphany that art wasn't just for those lucky few. I realized that creativity encompassed all parts of ourselves, that creating things—art, gardens, stories, games, you name it—was actually our birthright, and that spending time creating and making art can actually enhance every single aspect of our lives!

I started teaching as soon as I could, gathering the neighborhood kids into my garden shed, and in the two decades since, I’ve been honing my skills. My mission is to bring more joy, more play, more confidence, and more ease to the lives of my students (now from 100+ countries around the world!) through artmaking. 

Over the past ten years acrylic inks have become my main medium. I love their versatility and vibrance, and the possibilities that come when mixing them with other mediums as well.

They offer the fabulous fluidity and transparency of watercolors AND the vibrancy and layering possibilities of acrylics!

For a while now my students have been asking me to create a introductory course to share many of the things that I have learned while working with this amazing medium.

And so here it is!


“Your method of teaching is both gentle and explosive. You share lovingly from your heart; you manage to encourage students to soar and find their own way. I have taken other art classes, but I have to say that working under your tutelage has been the most enjoyable experience… it has opened me up not only in my approach to my art, but also in my life as a whole.”

- Diva Odete Kreszl

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time is required?

The (five) videos lessons are between 35 minutes and 1 hour 20 minutes.

Having said that, the goal is to be as creative as possible, and to get you creating as much as possible—so be warned that you’ll be wanting hours upon hours in your studio by the end of this course! 

(There’s also a good chance that you’ll want to paint along, pause, rewind, and so on while you’re watching the videos.)

Are there captions/subtitles?

This class has auto captions. We suggest using Chrome to view these videos if you wish to translate them into another language. There is a live caption and live translation setting automatically built into Chrome. You can edit your settings here.

If the above doesn't work for you, try this Chrome extension.

I don’t have many art supplies. Can I still do these lessons?

Absolutely! While I always have my favorite supplies, I want you to be open and adaptable and use what you have.

Having said that, here’s a list of everything I use in this art course:

  • Watercolor paper 300gsm (I use Strathmore)

I already bought another one of your online courses. How is this different?

All of my online classes are unique and completely different from one another. This course is equally for artists who have never used acrylic inks and also for those who wish to expand their techniques and practice with the medium. My aim is to provide inspiration and possibility thinking for all creatives!

What kind of support and feedback is available?

My team and I are always happy to offer email support via [email protected],  and you’re always welcome to ask any questions in my Alumni Facebook group. I pop in pretty often, but (even better) you can get help and perspective from all of my other students as well. They’re some of the warmest and most creative souls you’ll ever meet!

Is everything available immediately?

Yes! Once you purchase the class, your login details will be sent to you within the hour (make sure to check your junk/spam and add [email protected] to your contacts list).

Do I need a special program to access the materials?

All you need for this course is a device such as a laptop, tablet, or phone with an internet browser (I recommend Chrome).


Can I share this with a friend?

Once you purchase this class, it is meant for your eyes only. Please keep your login details to yourself. 

Do feel free, though, to share my website and even this page specifically if you think a friend would enjoy it!

Can I exhibit or sell the work I create in this workshop?

One of the main intentions of my courses is to help you find ways to connect with a style all your own. So I’m happy for you to show and sell any original, innovative work you create… in fact, I encourage it!

However, if you would like to follow along and produce pieces very similar to those within the course, I would ask that you don’t put those pieces out to exhibit or sell if they are close copies of my work. I trust that your heart will tell you what counts as “too close” to it. 

I also ask that you understand that what’s taught in my courses are my copyrighted techniques, and may not be taught or packaged as a class by anyone else without express consent. ♥

Can I teach these tutorials in my own classes?

I love sharing generously in my classes, but these tutorials, including all of their video and written content, are copyrighted material and are not to be shared or taught by others without specific consent. I ask that you please respect my intellectual property… I worked very hard to build all of my art courses!

Can I get a refund?

If you feel like you didn’t get your full money’s worth from this online course and its bonuses, just email me at [email protected] within 30 days and let me know why it wasn’t for you, and I’ll happily refund your money.  

The only exception: all sales are final for the $7 digital add-on.
