About me

So, my name is Karin Joan and I absolutely love being creative in various ways, especially when it comes to using paint and ink on paper.  Read more about me HERE

I offer both online and offline workshops, focusing mainly on painting flowers, plants, and brush lettering, among other things. I love to use watercolor and gouache. My style is primarily feminine and girly.

I'm always on the lookout for new techniques to teach you, wanting the participants in my workshops to achieve great results quickly. Most importantly, I want the experience to be enjoyable and accessible.  However, I also enjoy challenging you to push your boundaries and surpass your own expectations.

I was a teacher in elementary school for 18 years, where I learned how to convey information in the best and most enjoyable way. In my free time, I explored various creative projects and learned Photoshop and video editing. Over the years, I've shared many creative projects online, at fairs, and events, collaborating with inspiring colleagues, manufacturers, and retailers. I've also written for creative magazines and designed crafting products.

Now I'm here to inspire you to get creative yourself and make your world more beautiful, one artwork at a time.
