Dear Jacobina,

Thank you for inviting me to the presentation.  I found it helpful to learn of your personal experience in trusting your intuition, and how it opened your life to new directions and possibilities—as you sought a more fulfilling life.  This really is the particular province of right brain thinking awareness and what your drawing class certainly helps to foster.  

Overall I found it to be informative and engaging.  Your delivery, visuals and the small drawing exercise were effective. If I were not already your student, I know I would sign up for the course/coaching based on this presentation!.

Again, thank you for including me today and especially for your continued interest in my creative endeavors via the internet!


Jacobina’s ability to explain something complicated to an audience who is not familiar with the subject is excellent. Her great organizational skills and her outgoing personality have made her a tremendous asset to our club. She is a great instructor, a reliable and responsible person.

Sincerely, Karin M. Drury, ACG


Jacobina’s instruction is informed by her wonderfully broad education and experience in art, yet Jacobina has managed to understand my perceptions and work within my considerable visual limitations.

Though born and educated in Holland, Jacobina speaks and writes English better than most Americans. Her communication is a delight. If you are curious, ask her to include you in her emailed blog. Each eagerly anticipated installment comes complete with a piece of her work-which doubles the pleasure.

In short, I have almost no visual memory, yet Jacobina has managed to teach me to draw and, more significantly, made the process fun!

Imagine how your could benefit from such subtle instruction.

Sincerely, Amy Hibberd


Jacobina Trump has a rare ability to combine teaching technique and inspiring creativity from within each student. Her calm teaching style imparts the subject matter in a professional manner.  While at the same time, she is able to bring out their inner creative abilities as they utilize the techniques being studied.  It has truly been an amazing journey of self-discovery for me. So far so good… but I might want to say something about your ability to inspire our personal growth, and to transform some one out of a self-defeated frame of mind and into a confident one.
