RECLAIM

Remember and explore your true creative nature. Suitable for all levels.

2 days or 4 x 3 hour sessions for 1-8 people 

Even though it may have lain dormant for years, our creative nature is always there and can be reawakened with a personal impact that is calming, healing and rejuvenating. Delivered and refined since 2015, this signature course has been attended and equally enjoyed by people who consider themselves to be artists, and those who don’t. 

“I’ve noticed more impact over the longer term. I saw more of the value of creative practice and the emotional benefits… I finished my Masters in Forensic Archaeology in 2016 and I’d been doing ceramics too. Your courses inspired and encouraged me to go further into that field. Now I’m doing a graduate certificate in ceramics and don’t wish to continue with archaeology because I love the creative aspect of what I’m doing now…You were able to connect to each of us where we were at, so we got to experience our own creativity and know it was good. Your course in 2015 was the beginning of my creative journey. Now I won’t let it go! That’s what had been missing in my life, and it brings me happiness. I can’t live without this… it’s about having something that means something deep inside.”

“Choosing colour is like choosing life!”

 “…Suzanne is a highly skilled and wonderful teacher and mentor. Since doing the ‘Inspire’ Intensive I feel more confidence and excitement in all my creative pursuits, and less procrastination. Suzanne took me on a personal journey helping me to release obstacles that were blocking my creativity. The Intensive enabled me to heal and to access more creative energy, inspiration, skills and enthusiasm.”

DEVELOP – The Sabbatical

A transformational time out to tune in and re-ignite your creativity so you can feel the joy of your unique self-expression. Be guided step-by-step, learning abstract art with meditative methods & coaching for calm confident creativity.

5 days for 4-8 participants

When students ask about developing their ‘style’, they can be given a dismissive answer… because the answer is a big one! It can take years to develop your own way of speaking visually, just as it did with the spoken word. This programme guides you to explore and grow without the growing pains.

“… I would describe it as not so much a ‘course’ but a life changing experience. When I went into my studio at the end of the week, and looked through the collection of materials, and the varying evidences of my practice over the years I suddenly and deeply realised “ I am an artist! I find my self filled with awe and inspiration for the magic of light, form, space and colour, expressing feelings and abstract ideas that cannot be realised in representational work. I have new insight into my practice and feel empowered by this beautiful discovery… It has been a re-valuation that has transformed my vision of myself and my place in the world. I am not sure words really express the magic I have discovered. Anyway, it happened at exactly the right time. How wonderful. I am so grateful…” 

Pari Gilmour, Artist & Art Educator

 “Working with Suzanne has changed my life!! I thought I knew about paint….I knew nothing! I thought I was developing a palette…..not even close. I thought I knew the style of painting I wanted to do…nope! By working intensively with Suzanne everything has changed. She seems to not only have an immense depth of knowledge in art (far beyond anything I have seen or learnt from reading EVERY book and watching EVERY video I could) but is so gifted at relating what needs to happen for an individual student. There is a freedom gained from the way that she works with you. With the only intention that you be the absolute best you can be Suzanne informs, assists, guides, and coaches you to see the right way through, FOR YOU! I absolutely urge you to get in touch especially if you are serious about your artistic direction. She is a treasure!”

Peter Gilchrist  CEO RTI Australia

REPLENISH

Nurture your creative spirit through this series of gently restorative meditative art practices

2,3 or 4-days with 2 sessions/day  1-8 students

Recommended for anyone who is in recovery, burned out or who would like the well-being gained from gentle creative self-expression. Colour meets mindfulness in this course, drawing on easy painting and drawing methods, each session a new doorway to personal creative exploration. 

 “I received more than I could have imagined from this course. I found Suzanne to be a wise and generous teacher, as well as an accomplished artist, giving us practical insights and inspiring examples of other artists’ works, both ancient and modern; pointing out and enlightening us with spiritual aspects, calming and focusing guided meditations enhanced with many group discussions. After completing many paintings and drawings, we left with a solid grounding of how to approach our work in the future with insight and confidence. Thank you Suzanne.”  Liz Martyn
