Where are the words to adequately describe Dare to Create 2016 and EVERY person I had the pleasure of spending time with.  First and foremost a thanks to Sue Tucker who supported our crazy Dare to Create Collaboration and hosted this event…..


Next goes to this lady who I now feel fortune enough to call her friend….Debbie, who assisted me the entire weekend!


and then to this guy……..my partner in crime, Artist collaborator and friend Andy Skinner.  Dare3

There are really no adequate words to express my thanks and gratitude.  We are two weeks out from this amazing weekend and the feedback is still coming in. I have loads of loads of pictures and I put together some here in this video.  I really wish I could have shared them all!  Just a peek from the weekend……HERE

Every class was so memorable!

We have just announced Dare to Create 2017 and I am ever so thankful to be going back to the UK next year!

Andy Skinner and I are delighted to announce Dare to Create LIVE events for 2017!


We have set up a dedicated website for all Dare 2 Create events as well as a Facebook/Instagram page where you can find out the latest news and announcements. You can find them here:

First off, we are excited to announce Dare to Create UK 2017 is a go! We are so happy with the response of those who attended and who are so enthusiastically looking forward to the next Dare to Create.

Following some negotiations yesterday, we have secured the same dates – 24/25 June 2017 – at the Coventry Holiday Inn Academy venue and we are delighted that Di Oliver (who works with us on the Ministry of Mixology) has agreed to take over the organisation of this event for us. We are hugely grateful to Di for stepping in and helping us make this happen! We’d also like to extend our thanks to Sue Tucker and her team for making the last event a great success and hope to build on that success for 2017 and beyond as we take Dare to Create forward.

We can’t tell you how happy we are that this amazing event will happen again and we look forward to seeing old faces and new next June. Stay tuned for ticket sale announcements!

Thank you everyone for your support and enthusiasm– more news and NEW locations will be announced soon!

It takes courage to grow and become who you really are.  Don’t fear change.  You may lose something good, but you may also gain something great.”
