Painting The Feminine

Mixed-media art journaling exploring Feminine Wisdom

Self-Guided | 16.5 Hours of Video Content | Immediate Access


The year was 2012 & I was embracing life as a new mother for the Very first time...

Every night, exhausted but determined, I would sneak off to my studio for just an hour where I would paint in my art journal and explore what Feminine Wisdom meant to me.

Sometimes the answers would be as clear as the brushstrokes on my page, other nights I was swimming in the mystery.  But the one thing that stayed steady was my devotion to my practice.  No matter what my life felt and looked like — I kept showing up night-after-night to paint and then share my journal spread and insights online.

To my delightful surprise so many artists responded with such curiosity and a sincere interest to engage in this exploration I was in.  Months later the very first Painting the Feminine online workshop was born and for eight straight years I hosted this workshop online every Spring and Fall.

It is an honor to say that artists from all over the globe gathered with me through those eight years and together we painted, told stories of the Feminine, laughed, cried, and healed in such big, beautiful ways.

That's the power of the Feminine I believe — she starts as just a brushstroke late at night and with little effort transforms into a world-wide movement right before our eyes.

In 2021 I finished the last page of my Painting the Feminine journal on Zoom in the presence of so many beloved students and friends. In honor of the eight years I spent Painting the Feminine I self-published my journal into a hardcover book intended for artists to have their own Painting the Feminine experience with.

I no longer host the Painting the Feminine online workshop live. However, I'm delighted to offer it as a self-paced eCourse for artists eager to delve into their own Feminine Wisdom and creativity.

Praise for Painting the feminine

What Painting the Feminine has meant to me is…PTF meant a journey with beautiful souls that allow me to express and feel comfortable in it. I am very happy for this experience that also opened more my feminine qualities like intuition, passion, vulnerability, authenticity, nurturing, etc. It’s been an encounter with colors, brushes paper and canvas without restrictions, a sense of playing and sensuality, discovery and mystery.

Thank you Connie for your lovely teaching skills. This art adventure was challenging for me to open up to a new creative flow, as I have little to no experience in Art. I enjoyed the guided meditative tours to the places we spent healing and expanding our feminine power. I loved watching Connie move energy while she painted. The message I keep hearing as I worked on my own creations was to just let go and let it flow. I’m inspired to keep on this path.

Intuitive painting has taught me to find meaning and abandon meaning simultaneously. Colors who want to be invited to the palette easily call attention, brushes dance on the surface, and I don’t make any plans for the process or have expectations. I simply let the image become itself, whatever that is in the moment. I am an Artist of Presence and Embodiment. It is my hope my art reflects these qualities.

What I don’t want to forget about PTF is how it proved that so many women from all over the world are equally connected to feminism and art. The sisterhood is strong and we always need to remember that we are all in this together through the creative inspiring days and the days that seem to just seem harder to connect with our inner selves. Connie is so inspirational with her words and art, and she helped me tap into places in my creative brain that have never been tapped before.

Painting the Feminine was an experience of listening to the whispers within, the ideas and inspirations of my heart. This journey has supported me in paying more attention to my voice, my soulful core which had been pushed to the side, silenced and ignored in order to appear acceptable within society. There is another way. Painting the Feminine has strengthened my practice of embracing this other intuitive authentic way.

PTF is about entering emptiness, spaciousness, formlessness and from there, drawing out beauty, presence and wisdom, like one draws nourishment from a well. It is a birthing of what the world needs into form. I am in awe of how very special painting the feminine is. It is an opportunity to know Self through connecting to source/beauty and then bringing that knowing into form through painting. It has informed how I show up in my life and then my life has fed back into my painting; and so it goes, around the spiral we travel.
