About Suzanne Allard

I’m a floral/abstract painter and creativity teacher. When I first started painting a few years ago I wasn’t a big sketchbook user. I would dabble here and there but didn’t really have a relationship with my sketchbooks the way I do now. 

I would see all those pretty sketchbooks online and think what is the point, why go to all that trouble just to make a small version of something? 

Then I started really being brave in the sketchbook, trying new things, going back over things. Somehow, I had permission to be freer in the sketchbook than I did on a regular-sized painting. It gave me more freedom to fully flesh out ideas and then it became fun to see if I could make each spread something I liked.

This process of growing and falling in love with your sketchbook is dddwhat I’m aiming to teach you in this class. The by-product is that you grow as a creative person because I believe we all have a creative spirit that wants to express itself.
