I’m spilling secrets!

In this live online course, I’m sharing what I’ve learned over 20 years working as an award-winning designer, art director, and illustrator—all the tips, tools, and tricks that help me work smarter, not harder, and without blowing the budget! I’ll also share the most important lessons I learned working for myself for the past 14 years. 

I’ll show you where to find free fonts, images, AI tools, and Procreate brushes. I will also share all the tools I use for my creative work, marketing, and business. My tips and tricks on finding and managing clients, using AI, finding/creating references, amazing colour palettes, getting paid, pricing, drawing up estimates and invoices, protecting yourself and your work, making your creative work great, and lots more.

No gatekeeping here! This course will be jampacked with information.

What you’ll get:

• Six lessons of an hour and a half.
• A clickable list of all my favourite tools, recommendations, and freebies to download and keep.
• A pdf workbook to help you get started working for yourself.
• The terms and conditions I put on all my estimates.
• Video replays of all lessons to download and keep.
• The opportunity to ask questions at the end of every lesson.
• An hour long one-on-one consultation with me. Valued at R850

All of this for only R2000 if you book before the 10th of July!
After that, it will be R2500

Only 25 spots are available, so make sure to grab yours.

If you’re unsure if this course is a good fit for you, please email me at, and I will be happy to answer your queries.


When will I be repeating this course?
I don’t know. It depends on the popularity of the course. If I do repeat it, it won’t be anytime soon. It will likely be next year only.

What do I need/need to know?
Nothing; this course is accessible for all levels. And all you need is paper and a pen if you’d like to take notes.

Can I pay in instalments?
Yes, you can put down a deposit of R800 to secure your spot and pay the outstanding amount before the course begins. If you pay your deposit before the 10th of July, your ticket will be locked in at that early bird price. If you’d like this option, please get in touch:

What if I can’t make the lives?
You’ll get sent a replay to download and keep.

What if I fall behind?
Each lesson is stand-alone, so it doesn’t matter if you miss a lesson and don’t have time to catch up.

Important info.

My classes are no judgement zones. It’s best to learn in a relaxed, fun environment. You can participate as little or as much as you want. Positive feedback only. Ask as many questions as you like. You can use the chat feature. You don’t have to speak up unless you want to.

You will use the same Zoom link for all your lessons. Please keep it safe so you know where to find it. 

Please enter the Zoom meeting a few minutes before so that you’re ready to go at 18h00.

I recommend taking notes, so make sure you have what you need to do so. 

Replays will be sent out after each lesson.

If you know your Zoom handle, please fill that in. If you don’t have a Zoom handle, don’t stress. Just put your name there.

If you have questions about this course or other lessons or workshops, please contact me through my website or at

Please put the dates in your calendar. This page will also stay up until after the workshop if you need to come back and check the info. Please don’t contact me with questions regarding dates and times. I do everything myself, and answering emails is very time-consuming. So I kindly ask that before you email me, just check back here to see if your question is answered here.

Thanks so much!
