Today I’m going to be talking to Koosje Koene. Koosje cofounded Sketchbook Skool with me back in 2013 and we worked together every day for almost seven years. But then Koosje decided to leave the company and she’s taken a new direction with her life. She’s become an abstract painter, she teaches travel workshops, and she’s just written a book about drawing and how it can improve your life.
I am still great friends with Koosje and in fact, she still teaches a regular class in our Spark program.
But we’ve never talked publicly about why she decided to leave the Skool, how we both felt about it, and what she has been doing since.
We decided it was time to sit down and chat about it.
