Ready To Get Started


I understand how overwhelming it can be with getting to grips with social media. Especially if you have told yourself you are a technophobe.

It wasn’t until I published my first romance fiction, I understood how important Canva was for my new career as an author. I felt overwhelmed at the thought of creating daily social media posts, across several platforms. How was I to become visible in such a vast industry? I didn’t have the resources to pay a third party to do my marketing.

As a keen photographer, I’d previously learned how to create slideshows, videos and other creations on Canva, a remarkable graphic design platform.

Now I educate midlife businesswomen how to use Canva, with the added advantage of personalising designs with their own photographic images, helping them to stand out from the competition.

 I know there are other Canva tutorials available online, however my courses are taught with small, easy to understand steps.

Together with my knowledge and experience, I can help you become Canva Confident.

There isn’t a creative bone in my body, so creating images for my business used to bring me out in a cold sweat. Joanna’s teaching style is relaxed but thorough and her workshops are warm, friendly and welcoming. Joanna takes you from clueless to confident with Canva in no time at all. Joanna has been brilliant at helping me really get to grips with Canva. I can now confidently create beautiful images, flyers and workbooks without the drama! Thank you, Joanna.

Jane French – The Conformance Lab

I can’t recommend Joanna’s course enough. Growing from a complete beginner to a person that now can use Canva with confidence was something I thought I’d never grasp. Joanna was so patient and showed me step by step how to pick a design, then change elements without becoming overwhelmed and giving up. She offered ideas and suggestions without losing what I wanted, and it has helped me enormously. Thank you so much Joanna, I’ll be looking out for the next course you offer!
