My Art Film — Crownless. An amazing AHA! experience, confirming my belief that our art and life are truly interconnected.

  • “Having participated in several of Holly's workshops, I can vouch for how pleasant, stimulating, non-threatening, awe-inspiring they are. There is an artist in all of us... And Holly has the unique ability to bring out that nourishing and vital aspect of our self. And, to top it off, it's just plain fun!”

Why do I pursue an Artsy Life?

I vividly remember the moment I decided to drop art in high school. My grade 9 art teacher pointed out that I hadn’t drawn a tree "correctly" and I thought, “Forget this! Obviously I’m no good at art and, anyway, it's so boring.”

Although I grew up in a creative environment with supportive parents who told me I could do anything, it took me years to see “art” for what it really was — not just a bunch of soulless techniques, but a joyful, fulfilling way to live!

My dream is to help you live an artsy life. The creative energy and beautiful connections that happen in my mixed media art workshops are the same experiences I share with you in my Good Morning Artsy Life online Membership.

Life can be both beautiful and heart breaking. I'm thankful to be a breast cancer survivor. Many dear friends have not been so lucky. I have a heightened awareness of how precious life is... how important it is to live your life authentically, in a way that allows you to be who you really are. I want to help you to live this way.

I see it in the delight my sweet grandson shows when he is creating a beaded bracelet. He's lost in the process, then thrilled with what he's made. There's joy and love in the making that can't be expressed in words. His autism is no barrier when it comes to art and creativity. We all need to communicate through our creativity — it's as natural as breathing!

  • “Holly Dean genuinely cares about the participants and helps us along with gentle reinforcement. She provides great ongoing on-line support to help us learn... The group interaction is also very stimulating.”

Experience life’s challenges with more ease.

  • “Holly's teaching style suited me perfectly and I can’t wait to learn more and especially to create more! Her guidance and calm approach was exactly what I was looking for.”

I believe we all have a strong, basic need to explore and create. When you give yourself permission to play, to be child-like again, you discover who you are. Magic is invited in.

My Good Morning Artsy Life Creative Lifestyle Membership is a safe, supportive place to explore your creative journey. I've got your back and so do your fellow creative members.

 

What is the best decision for you?

I have answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the
Good Morning Artsy Life Membership below…

What makes this online creative membership different from others?
Good Morning Artsy Life is built on my belief that living a creative lifestyle is a deeply important part of being human. Here, we all embrace our creative souls while encouraging and inspiring each other to take joy in our expression.

What will you be sharing with me?
I believe in being generous with my experiences, skills, ideas, knowledge, stories and how I am living now. I have been dubbed the 'gentle persuader' (LOL) for sweetly encouraging you to go beyond your comfort zone and really get to know yourself. I also encourage your participation in the group... funny, because that was my weakness all through school!

Will I be able to do this if I’m hopeless online?
Yes! I will teach you the skills you need to participate on the membership site and in our private Facebook group.

  • “Holly's awe inspiring workshop was a wonderful, non-threatening, first time 'art' event for me... I feel inspired to play & create with the information/techniques I have learned. It truly feels like a 'door' has been opened.”

Why I created the Good Morning Artsy Life membership…

Living an artsy life isn't just about art. It's about finding beauty in everything — enjoying the planning, preparing and eating of a beautiful meal, feeling the connection to the earth while working in your garden, breathing in the heady scents on a walk through the woods, sharing memories and laughs with a cherished friend...

For over 17 years, I’ve been helping fellow artists and creative souls to [re]discover the joy that comes from allowing yourself to play, explore and express who you really are. You really do deserve this!

 

Are you ready to live an Artsy Life?

  • “I just felt the need to write and thank you for another great class this morning. What you offer is much more than art classes - you give friendship, therapy, confidence, vision and recognizing the beauty in everything.
    Thank you for being there!!”

Feel that breathless joy you had as a kid.
