You won’t find my original paintings anywhere else!
How I ground myself before every painting session.
Get unstuck and move your paintings forward!
We’ll get paint all over us. We’ll probably dance. We’ll definitely say bad words.
Being born and raised in South Louisiana, my roots run deep in gumbo and shenanigans. These days, I call Austin, Texas ‘home’. About 18 years ago, I got a wild hair to grab a paintbrush and well, it’s been a crazy ride ever since. I paint mostly in abstract expressionism, which is just a fancy way to say I use paint to communicate what I may not have words for… which is a little shocking cuz I can be pretty mouthy.
I love to teach others my methods of rebellious painting (and living) and I hold nothing back. (Although I should probably filter more). Years ago, a practice of meditation, journaling and art led me back to my truest self and purpose. Now, I’m setting big goals and chasing wild dreams, in and out of the studio. While I work my butt off getting to do what I love, I never lose sight that kitchen dancing and nekid streaking (in the dark) make life worth living.
But, it’s hard to go it alone. My mentoring and mastermind programs take years off the learning curve to allow you to soar in art and life. We connect with fun and, real, like-minded people who support and encourage you to keep (or begin) living a life you’re jazzed about. It’s equal parts art, biz, soul, and laughter and it adds fuel to the ember within you that maybe once was a fire.
Let’s light that sucker up again. It’s time.
These tools are a little unexpected and out of the box, so brace yourself!
My 2020 and 2021 workshops were a bust thanks to the ‘Rona, but that won’t stop us from going hard in 2022! My workshops are known for being honest, fun, and ever-so-slightly messy. While I do lots of demonstrations, I don’t teach you to paint like me...I teach you how to paint like YOU! You’ll push through the creative process to find your own voice in your art. Don’t be surprised if you find your wild.
I will supply paint & Canvas, you only need to bring your favorite tools like brushes, scrapers, etc.

Learn the rules the Masters knew. Then break them like a Rebel.
Something about how the workshops open up another side of your art or create honest art
This class was the best thing I have ever done for myself. Others should take it if they are honest, kind, warm, have a sense of humor, are accepting of others, and are willing to share encouragement. Art ability does not matter but art interest sure does. Jodi is an excellent teacher and no matter your ability, you will walk away with a learned skill.
Something about how the color course for creatives is a game changer for your practice no matter what medium you work in
I loved Jodie’s Color Course, it felt like she was right there in the room guiding me on! No BS, no fillers, just straight to the point helpful information.However, the part that has helped me understand and improve my paintings was the “Mother Color” secret. Oh my goodness, that is a game changer!! Highly recommend the course.
Something about how the running your business is a skill that goes with creating art
I can say, this course is an ABSOLUTE GAME CHANGER! I'm so honored and lucky to have been picked for the first group. Get your applications in because this course will save you years of wasting time trying to figure things out. And, Jodie King friggin ROCKS!
Something about crafting your home with powerful art created with intention
For weeks, I stared at your “Truth over Consequences” piece. Speaking truth to power always has consequences for the speaker. It is dangerous. But for sure, truth-telling rules. The somewhat horizontal line in this piece is everything. The color. How it powerfully cuts through it all. I’m so glad it's mine. One of my best investments.
