Our lovely Shiny Happy Art Club is being refreshed.


There are now SIXTY Paint Alongs in the SHA Club. SIXTY!

Actually there are more than sixty because some months (like Van Gogh and Monet months) I designed and shared up to 4 paintings, and since OPA 29, I’ve also filmed a watercolour version of each acrylic painting!

That’s a LOT of colourful art in the last 5 years. And I’m so proud that they’re paintings that still look great today!

The reason for our 'SHA' Club has always been:

  1. to encourage you to paint regularly,
  2. to keep you inspired,
  3. to improve your skills, and
  4. to make Art Friends.

All with just one set of paints and brushes!

We started this together

Since the SHA Club began we’ve had the most wonderful response. Hundreds of people from around the world have Painted Along with me, the Shiny Happy Way, and made my designs come to life in their homes. And lovely Linda has managed all your questions and accounts behind the scenes.


I’ve moved house 3 times, finalised a divorce, juggled part time jobs and exciting opportunities, stayed home during that pandemic, farewelled our dear studio dog, Maeby, become a solo parent to my teen daughters… there really have been so many changes.

But through all of this, our SHA Club has been a constant, and I’m so grateful for your support from the very beginning.


I have committed to creating a ‘Shiny Happy Ideas Show’ this September.

It’s a huge opportunity to bring a lot of ideas (that I’ve had for YEARS) to life! It will involve a lot of art making, collaborations and support, and you’re the first to know!

I have also started filming a Shiny Happy Art business course, travel sketching projects and, of course, my “ArtFitApp” so there’s still a lot of Shiny Happy Art on the go right now.

For months now I’ve tried to figure out how I can fit it all in without wrapping up the Club, because honestly, I’m very proud of the paintings we have here and the way I teach them.


I’ve decided to loop the Club around to #01 and refresh every class.

This means means February 2024’s painting will be Online Paint Along (OPA) #01, “Flora the Chook”, and March will be OPA #02, “Floss Flowers”, etc.

I will update each class as it is re-released, double checking that instructions are clear, printables are included… AND I’ll record a watercolour version for Club Members (because I only started doing that at #29!).

It’ll be lovely to revisit our original subjects!

I am also releasing 3 new Club only videos in February:

  • Cool and Warm Primaries and their substitutes;
  • Setting Yourself Up for Acrylic Success; and 
  • Watercolour Foundations.

where are you now?

You currently have ‘Lifetime Access’ (for the life of my Shiny Happy Art website) to the first 36 OPAs, and ‘Subscriber Access’ to the most recent 24.


If you subscribe for 2024 (that’s this month’s payment) I will give you Lifetime Access to the most recent TWO years of OPAs SO THAT YOU’LL HAVE THE FULL SET of acrylic and watercolour Club paintings. 

So what are your options?


You don’t need to do anything.

Your subscription fee will be drawn just one last time (as a Foundation Member you’ve always had the lowest price), and then we will close your subscription (so it can’t be accidentally drawn down again). OPA#37 through to OPA#60, AND their watercolour versions, will be transferred to your Lifetime Access Library.

You’ll have the entire SHA Club collection.

You’ll also get the three new videos in February AND all the new watercolour versions as I film them for the first 28 subjects AND you’ll stay on in our private Club Facebook Group if you’re there already.

Linda will email you to let you know that it’s all sorted.


You maintain access to OPA’s #01 to #36 in your Lifetime Access Library and all their updates.

You will not get access to the watercolour versions as they are added, and you will lose access to OPAs #37-60 and the private Club Facebook Group.

You can cancel or change your subscription plan easily. The instructions are here.

You can also email Linda and she will organise the cancellation for you.

of course, if you have any questions or concerns, simply

We’ve made so many lovely memories. I hope we get to make a few more yet! 

I’ll see you in the studio.
