Everyone can paint. It’s true. I have seen it over and over again. Learn to paint for joy today and embrace an art practice to call your own. In no time you will paint with natural ease anywhere, anytime.
To give your art-making a boost I have developed the Creative by Nature Art Method- an easy to learn playful painting practice comprised of the most essential nature-inspired skills and habits.
Beauty Muse: Painting in Communion with Nature
In this book you will discover nature-inspired tools to ignite a painting practice to call your own. With over 100 easy-to-try painting activities, inspiring narrative and vibrant colour images, Beauty Muse: Painting in communion with nature is a rich creative painting companion.
I paint with nature’s beauty- her patterns, colours, shadows and elemental tensions. I teach painting and Creative Nature Connection workshops to youth & adults using the Creative by Nature Art Method in retreats, school settings, art camps and 1:1. I am a “nature-taught” painter (I made that up) and have a Doctorate in Transformative Learning from the University of Toronto. I am president of the Salt Spring Gallery, an artist-driven fine art collective. I live, work and play on Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada and love gunk holing around the Gulf Islands on my sailboat Phoenix. Learn more
