What you need:
A small group of creative people who share ideas and support each other.
2 full days of uninterrupted art-making time in a well equipped, inspirational setting.
Everything you need supplied for you.
An eagerness to play and explore... to step out of your comfort zone.
A realization that the beautiful art you make comes from inside you.
I loved every minute spent making art this weekend with these lovely women. There is such beauty and grace in each piece, reflecting their lovely souls.
This was the first Painting Mixed Media Layers Workshop of the year here in my Merrickville studio. It runs again Mar 25 + 26 and Sep 9 + 10. I hope you will take part.

I love Neil Gaiman’s advice. As artists, we need to make glorious, amazing mistakes. If we don’t, our art won’t change or grow and neither will we.
Last year I committed to exploring different techniques and approaches in my mixed media paintings. I made fabulous mistakes, opened myself to change and learned valuable lessons. I can’t wait to share all of this with you!
Here at my Merrickville studio, January 2017 kicks off with 7 opportunities to make amazing mistakes in your own art: 1 ART WORKSHOP, 2 ARTSY LIFE MINI WORKSHOPS + 4 STUDIO PAINT NIGHTS.
1 ART WORKSHOP
2 MINI WORKSHOPS WITH HOLLY DEAN AND LAURA STARKEY
4 STUDIO PAINT NIGHTS
I believe we all have a strong, basic need to explore and create. When we give ourselves permission to play, to be child-like again, we discover who we are. Magic is invited in.
