As I am self taught due to my remote location, Mindy has opened up a whole new world for me regarding exactly what it is I am doing, and how to move forward in order to progress with this skill. I am thrilled to have her as my teacher. I have gained more confidence in my shading and drawing skills through the fundamentals class. I LOVE using the tracing paper and overall this experience has been so exciting for me. The videos tie it all together so well. What a great series of lessons she put together.
