If you've wanted to start making art but your perceived "lack" of talent and creativity has prevented you from realising that dream...
I have something to tell you, I have been there. I have felt lost, confused and too scared to start for fear of messing up or "wasting my time" on an unrealistic dream. Forcing my way through those feelings and experimenting with art from a different perspective has taught me valuable lessons.
I now feel strongly that I would like to share what I've learned with women who are in the place that I was in seven years ago. I share it because I want to offer you hope, tools and a process to focus your intention, nourish your creative spirit and inspire you to delve deep into your colourful inner world with intuitive art.
Claiming your creativity
I have experienced the disempowering belief that I was not creative. I've also learned along the way that my belief's were misplaced They came from being told by a teacher when was 10 years old that she didn't know why I bothered. I know that you are creative, even if you don't. I will guide you through rediscovering your creative spirit as we begin to make art together.
Here's what I am offering you
I would like to guide you through my personal creative process, sharing what I've learned along my journey. I would like to offer you personalised coaching as you begin your creative journey with intuitive mixed media art.
If you've not started in the past because you've felt afraid to, that's okay. If you've started, but given up, that's okay too. We will work together through a non-judgemental process to get past the icky feelings, but honouring them and understanding them too, so that they aren't quite so fearsome! There are no mistakes in creative self-expression and everything is allowed. We'll follow intuition as a guide, and allow changes of direction and new stories to appear.
The emphasis of intuitive art coaching is on fulfilling your desire to make art. We will, however, have the opportunity, over time if you would like to, to delve a bit deeper into the self-discovery and transformation side of intuitive art making. Together we can explore the different ways that you can use intuitive art as a tool to enrich your everyday life.
What you will get from intuitive art coaching
You are on your own creative journey. You already have everything you need to make meaningful, beautiful art. My job will be to walk alongside you with a big toolkit of ideas, prompts and encouragement. I will pick the appropriate tool and hand it to you when you need it. Here is how it works.
- Weekly two hour sessions in my studio near Stanford, one-on-one. These two hours together will be where you can ask questions, share breakthroughs and express frustrations. I will paint alongside you creating two paintings as you create yours, over a period of 4 weeks.
- Practical guidance to create your first two intuitive mixed media paintings.
- Prompts to continue on your own between sessions.
- The option to continue for another 4 weeks, at a discounted rate, or to book an 8 week package up front. The second 4 weeks will be spent exploring four different ways to approach intuitive art for self-discovery. Whether you complete a painting a week, or start 4 paintings to continue at your leisure is completely up to you and depends on how much time you have and how quickly you work.
- Access to all resources on my website.

Each session will allow time for a review of triumphs and challenges of the previous week. At the end of each session, we will chart the creative invitations of the next week and set creative goals.
