Deep recovery from abuse, addiction and trauma

I’ve been developing and teaching creative classes for 30 years. I guide and encourage you along as you uncover your creative essence. As we paint, we as questions, inquire about “what is coming up” and let the brush fly... the answers come as whispers and sometimes as song or words. As you paint, you gain your own inner knowledge. We ask with intention and listen with gratitude, this is the process of Intentional Creativity for which I am certified to teach. It is a wildly wonderful way to create a painting because you are in a flow, you use your intuition vs using your logical brain and so the process is free and liberating! You choose color, patterns and symbols that come up in the session, you layer and include what’s important... with many Ah-ha moments, laughter and at times tears of joy. What can be uncovered can be understood and used to move you forward on your path. Your finished piece has love and deep meaning to you with beautiful colors and images.

I bring all needed supplies and a kind heart to your facility! I require a minimum of 4 students to book an appointment, contact me to get on the calendar.

We are ALL loving mamas to someone or something. Maybe it's for your children or Grandchildren, maybe it's for your fur baby or for the earth. Maybe it's the love you have for the unborn child that never came. What is important is to cherish that love and celebrate it with ideas, colors and symbols that want to come forth! This class lets you honor and love through painting a mama's belly and whatever else you want to include for deep healing and acceptance! Contact me to take this class.

You may not have had the best upbringing and it feels like you were not listened to or supported. How can we change this old story?

We paint and heal with this new house of the heart. Contact me to take this class.
