The Artist's Nightmare

A problem solving course to help you confidently face the most difficult subjects and troubleshoot your own paintings, series, and entire painting practice.


Gain the skills and confidence to take your art to the next level with The Artist's Nightmare.


This course helps artists of all levels tackle challenging subjects and overcome common problems in their paintings and art practice. As part of the Not Sorry Art School Lifetime Tuition, it complements the Acrylic Fundamentals course, providing further insights into professional troubleshooting techniques.

What's in the course?

First I’ll paint a “nightmare” painting of all the most requested, challenging subjects. We’re talking patterns, weird lighting, hands, translucent plastic, and flowers. You'll also learn how to work with client requests and incorporate objects not present in the painting. I break everything down step by step, starting with drawing all the way through finishing touches. 

But it's not just about technique. I'll address the mental and emotional challenges that come with being an artist. The Pep Talk section is dedicated to helping you work through the creative process and understand how to tackle issues such as when a portion of a painting isn't working or when a series isn't working. We'll provide strategies to help you overcome these challenges and find new ways of achieving your artistic goals.

If you’re feeling stuck in your entire art practice, The Artist's Nightmare offers insights and solutions for artists who are struggling with their creative practice. Taking breaks, engaging in play, and balancing your inputs and outputs are just a few ways to help spark creativity and manage the anxiety and perfectionism that can arise. Additionally, the course offers practical advice on how to find time to create, and how to validate and prioritize your artistic pursuits to others in your support network.

I’m here to help you overcome your painting nightmares and reach your full potential as an artist. Join our community of learners and gain access to our online course and private Facebook Community, where you can ask questions, share your progress, and connect with other artists.
