I believe …
I believe that learning to paint can be a way of discovering you’re far more than you realise. I believe it’s possible to experience your true creative nature no matter what your age given the mind is willing and heart is open. Like Zen and the art of painting, what happens is not only learning to paint, or make meditative art; it’s a way to to inner peace, insights, gentleness, resilience, joy, effectiveness, kindness, wise choices and true confidence. In short, it’s a way to know your Self better and love your life.
… you can learn to paint no matter what stage of life you’re at
… like your signature, you have your own unique way of expressing yourself so you cannot ‘get it wrong’
… nurturing your Creative Self can renew your sense of meaning and purpose
… making art with mindfulness is a way to a more joyful life
… you can fast-track your learning by restoring freedom of creative expression with The Journey Method of guided self-enquiry
… you don’t have to be able to draw in order to paint
…helping people experience their true creative nature is ‘my thing’!
A Visual Art educator since 2006, Suzanne is an award-winning painter and Journey Accredited Life Coach trained in teaching, spiritual care, visionary leadership and meditation. Her mission is to create spaces of peace and light through her paintings and helping people experience the solace, joy and wonder of their true creative nature. The long dark night of the soul after serious illness in 2011 and personal tragedy in 2012 led Suzanne to the innovation of her creativity-nurturing coaching framework and methods. Her private online or in-person retreat programs – “Paint from the Heart” & “Solace, Colour & Light: Meditative Art” focus on reclaiming creative freedom, through art as meditative practice that anyone can do, and discovering one’s unique visual language. An introduction to her work, Suzanne’s “Roadmap to Restoring your True Creative Self” can help you gain clarity about your gifts and how you might live into them more fully. She has presented her programs in Australia, Italy and Germany and paints from her studio in rural NSW. Exhibiting professionally for over 20 years, Suzanne also accepts painting commissions for the co-creation of sacred spaces.
