Painting The Feminine
Self-Paced | Online eCourse | Immediate Access
IN PAINTING THE FEMININE WE EXPLORE WHAT FEMININE WISDOM MEANS TO US THROUGH ART JOURNALING & STORYTELLING
In 2012 I was embracing life as a brand new mother and 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 now no longer host my Painting the Feminine online workshop live — but I'm happy to offer it as a self-paced eCourse for artists yearning to sink into their own Feminine Wisdom and creativity.
