Meet Donna Mulholland & Erica Simpson of 21 Secrets Fall!



From now until October 1st, every Friday here at Dirty Footprints Studio, Hali Karla the new 21 SECRETS Creative Director, is honoring the amazing teachers of 21 SECRETS Fall  by personally introducing each of them to you here! We are certain that you will love these artists as much as we do! Be sure to check out each artist’s links & come join us in 21 SECRETS Fall this October!  To see past teachers in this series just click HERE.

Donna Mulholland’s artwork vibrates with joyful energy and her love of color! A Canadian artist and creativity coach, she is living a realized dream of having her own studio and gallery space, and is passionate about encouraging others to live the life they dream and love. She is going to guide a lesson on just that idea in her watercolor workshop for journaling, Ten Years From Now! It’s always good to get clear and let loose with our dreams in the pages, don’t you think?

There is a softness, a safety to the inspiration Erica Simpson shares. It is intentional and thoughtful – the kind of insight that comes to someone who observes the world through the lens of her creative spirit. What I love about Erica is that she finds refuge and truth for navigating life in her creative practice, whether she’s shooting photos, painting, collaging, writing or art journaling. She’s going to lead us on a soulful journey of shifts and reclamation in her altered book workshop, Flip The Script!
