“… 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…”

RECLAIM your Creativity – 2 days

for individuals & small groups

Remember, explore & express your true creative nature with meditative art. Suitable for all levels.

Mostly attended by people who do not consider themselves to be artists but want to be creative, this meditative art course can help you experience the joy of your natural creative expression while creating your kind of beauty.  

“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!”

INSPIRE: A VIP DAY

A fully customised day of coaching and a guided meditative art project so you can be inspired by your fresh insights and seeing what you can create

This day is customised for you if you’re not sure what to do next and want to restore your imagination and sense of direction.

 “…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.”

Love your Creativity: Paint from the Heart in Florence, Italy 

 

An inner and outer adventure as you discover paint and paintings. (I know we’ll be able to do this again!)

Explore the wonders of Florence with Suzanne as she shares her research on the frescos, how to paint luminous effects and nurtures your creative expression. 

“These would to have to be two of the best weeks of my life so far! …I have learnt so much, on so many different levels, about myself, my abilities, my passions, and how to tap into that effortlessly. Suzanne’s guided mediations are so inspirational – she effortlessly opens the channels to allow the creativity to flow. It was so much fun seeing what appeared on the paper and exploring where that led me… The whole experience was so full of joy-filled moments – I feel totally enlivened… 

I loved the magnificent frescos which Suzanne so knowledgeably guided us through. Firenze is such a fabulous centre of art that we felt totally immersed in it. Suzanne’s insights into this world were inspiring… This would definitely be the best investment I’ve made in myself to date and I feel the benefits will flow forward into my future as I follow the paths that have been opened to me… I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone interested in developing their creativity in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This comes from someone with no artistic training, Suzanne instils such trust (which is well deserved) that the whole process just happened without me having to “know” anything.”

 “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.”
