About the instructor

I teach success!

I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and skills with you.

When I began Eco Printing I made many mistakes. I was dissapointed, frustrated and discouraged with my results. There was no where to turn for help. I experimented, I took workshops, I read books until I unlocked the secrets of Eco Printing.

I am here to save you the valuable hours and wasted natural resources while trying to get the beautiful results you seek.

I have shared my knowledge and skills with hundreds of people. Watching students jump for joy or squeal in delight as they open their bundles.

I would like to personally invite you to join me to learn how to make Eco Printing fun, exciting and have success!
