Experience Creative Wellness.

Making art intuitively quickly becomes a metaphor for your life. Like the saying “the way you do anything is the way you do everything”, what you bring to the canvas highlights what you bring into relationship with yourself.

The studio becomes the perfect environment for releasing inhibitions, growing intuition, practicing self-kindness, and birthing joy.

Paint Awake™ serves artists and non-artists alike Unlike art classes many of us have experienced, in Paint Awake™ creative wellness workshops and retreats, we focus solely on the process instead of the product. This allows us to stay outside of judgement while we apply colors and forms freely.  We practice staying mindful and curious in each moment.  The process becomes almost like dreaming - images and colors bubble up, expand, take shape, and morph - without any preconceived expectations.

Our paintings provide visual stories, offering insights about our dreams and hopes from the perspective of our own intuitive wisdom.  Benefits extend well beyond our time in the painting studio, as we discover how creative intuition brings ease and flow into other parts of our lives.
