In the painting process we discover that the way you paint will expose the way you live. It awakens us to our ideals and beliefs and the old thought patterns and habits that keep us stuck and in fear of the past and the future and not being good enough.

Gentle Breath Meditation and the painting process are useful tools to expand the level of awareness in your body and its innate intelligence, and assist you to become consciously present.

Weekend Workshops:

I am now running my Weekend Workshops from my apartment for a limited number of between 2 and 5 people.

There are no set dates for weekend workshops but they are available whenever you want to play and have fun with paper and paint. All we need to do is find a date that suits us both and voila it happens!

If you are interested in a Weekend Workshops you can make up your own group and I can tailor it to your specific needs and time. Contact me and we will find a time that suits us both. 10.00 am till 4.00 pm.

Private 1 on 1 Sessions are also available. Please specify your preference.

The cost for a weekend workshops is: $300.

The Testimonial below is from a group of friends who grabbed a window of opportunity last year and did a weekend workshop at my apartment in Martha Cove.

"We have all had a wonderful uplifting two days and leave energised and inspired. Thank you for creating a wonderful space and energy for us to simply "be" in joy and laughter and play. This weekend has meant so much on many levels. Again, thank you."

Please for more details. If you don't know anyone who would like to join you then I can put a workshop together for you.

Venue (for both the 6-week Classes and Weekend Workshops):

My apartment: Martha Cove Marina.. Safety Beach. On the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. (Melbourne, Australia)

My apartment is not huge but quite beautiful and we look at the waterway where the boats sail past to go out to Safety Beach.

Note: Because my apartment is not very big, the numbers are limited to a maximum of 5, so be quick to secure your place.

Teaching On-Line:

With no classes happening for most of last year there was an enquiry from a painter who really wanted to learn about the Painting Process, so as an experiment, we dived straight into an on-line class. It was an experiment as I was not convinced it would work. Quite the contrary happened and we are going to continue to share the course on-line as the painter lives too far away to attend in person.

In the past there has been many who have said they would like to attend but distance is the problem, now classes are offered on-line and they are fun.

If you live too far away to join the classes and are interested in an on-line programme, please ring me to discuss.

Hi Friends and Painters

We have just completed another cycle around the sun, welcome to 2022. 🥰

Did you make a New Years resolution? Some people don't bother anymore because they know they won't stick to them but others have good intentions and often make the same resolutions year after year.

And, as so often happens, we travel around the sun for another 365 days and nothing much changes and we wonder why we feel a dissatisfaction or frustration with our lives. But this can change!

It is mostly because we are unaware of our mind talking about the same old thoughts, habits, patterns, ideals or beliefs that run us.

As I have said before, the way we paint will expose the way we think, talk and live. The things we say to our self while we paint are the very same words we use about our self every day, mostly judgements, criticisms and put downs.

How might you begin to change these incessant patterns? Can you make space to stop and care for you and join our weekly painting sessions, learn more about your self while having fun painting?

In this 1st term we are focusing on SELF CARE. What does self care mean for you? Eating well, sleeping well, exercise? Having some 'me' time? Spa baths, candles burning etc.

These things are an integral part of self care, however if we put it under the spotlight there is much more to consider. We will be looking at a deeper understanding of how self care can be developed and claimed within us.

A key part of this is committing to life to truly live well in this world in joy, love and truth, which is in fact our natural way.

Make space to stop and care for you. 🎨

Investment: $295 for the 6 weeks. Everything is provided, good quality paints, brushes, palettes, paper, a choice of teas and a gluten free, dairy free snack.

All you have to bring is your beautiful self.

Please contact me asap if you wish to join our beautiful painting community as space is very limited.

Ring or if you would like to book in, and if you would like more information give me a ring 0428 820 100.

I look forward to seeing you with a paintbrush in your hand and having fun.
With love,

P.S. For those of you who don't know, I have qualified as a Civil Celebrant and am now available for funerals, living wakes, weddings, elopements, naming ceremonies, in fact just about anything you would like to celebrate.
