There are ways to create art that teach us yet another version of how to "do it right"... and then there are ways to create art that teach us something about ourselves.
I've always been more drawn to the second way, 'art as a way to discover ourselves'. That's why I fell in love with Intuitive Art. In it, I found a way to self-express in a way that I never knew possible.
I've been painting for as long as I can remember and over the years my work has evolved as much as I have.
I've been influenced by the places I've lived. I’ve had the incredible opportunity in my life to live in and travel to several different corners of the globe. I’m fascinated with meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and absorbing the energy a new space.
And I've been fortunate enough to exhibit my work all over the world.
Traveling so often changes my perspective and I'm always surprised how that informs and inspires my paintings. For me, inspiration really can come from anywhere. It's just a matter of noticing.
My hope is that my work will evoke an appreciation for all the beauty that surrounds us every day regardless of where or how we live.
When I first discovered the power of Intuitive Painting I found enormous freedom, not just as an artist, but as a person. I used to spend a lot of time trying to 'figure it out', trying to do things right, follow the rules, or get the A. And that was true whether I was wondering what to do with my life, or figure out how to perfectly paint a tree. With Intuitive Painting, there were no more rules, no more right or wrong way to do things. It took a lot stress out of the creative process. Painting this way allowed me to let go of the need to produce something beautiful every time I painted, and instead to simply enjoy the journey ... on and off the canvas.
If there's any part of you that can't 'figure it out' maybe that's because we're not meant to figure it out. If you're up for simply creating some art in an intuitive way and being open to discovering what shows up when you do, then come try a workshop. At the end of the day, I promise you'll be surprised what you discover along the way.
Do you sometimes feel like there are too many rules out there? That everyone has an opinion about what you should be doing, what you should be saying, what you should be wearing, how you should be behaving and what you should be thinking no matter what you actually do, say or think? Want to take a break and spend time creating in an intuitive way where there are no rules or right or wrong way to do things? No one judging, no one trying to fix you? Then come and join us in this intuitive painting workshop. It's all about letting go and enjoying the creative process.
Want to spend time doing something creative and a little different? This intuitive painting workshop is a great way to let go and enjoy some time making art with other creative women. This way of painting is all about being in the moment, letting go, taking risks and simply enjoying the process of painting. There is no right or wrong way to do it and from my experience it is a super liberating way to paint. You'll be encouraged to be who you are and to express yourself through your unique individual lens. Absolutely no art experience necessary.
