Spontaneous Creativity and Authentic
Self-expression. The Art of Letting Go.

Escape the mundane and experience an amazing, magical journey into the mysteries of your own intuitive creativity. Gift yourself ample time and space to reconnect mindfully with courage and compassion. Feed your inner fire, let go, find bliss, and ignite your radiance.

In all sessions, we focus on the process instead of the product. The approach makes painting seem almost like dreaming - images and colors bubble up from within, expanding, taking shape, changing form, without any preconceived expectations. The benefits extend well beyond the time you are in the art studio, as you'll discover how creative intuition brings flow into your life.

Discover this colorful path to freedom, connection, and inner joy.

Intuitive Painting, 2015 Italy Retreat

No art experience required.  This work is about your journey with the process and not the product. The painting becomes a mirror, a visual diary giving you insights to your hidden dreams and hopes, your inner places that need witnessing and compassion, and your path to your best creative guide - your own inner playfulness and wisdom.

Tapping Creativity in order to Help Others

I find the act of making art intuitively quickly becomes a metaphor for your life. Like the saying “the way you do anything is the way you do everything”, what you bring to the canvas highlights what you bring into relationship with yourself. The studio becomes the perfect environment for releasing old fears, growing intuition, practicing self-kindness, and freeing your inner joy.
