My approach to teaching is very intuitive. Every single person who comes to these retreats is on a different level and brings with them their own unique style of learning. I like to read the room and meet each person right where they're at! From the basics to painting detailed florals and landscapes all the way to helping you get into that flow state. Teaching is my superpower.
Retreats with me are unique. A full-blown experience.
Every detail matters.
A chateau in the countryside of France or a villa in Spain? Whatever country we're in, we're making sure it's picturesque and conducive to creating a flow of inspiration, amazing conversation and beautiful friendships with the other guests. Every evening we spend time doing connecting, Q&As with me on art, business, etc. , eating a beautifully prepared meal by the private chef and local wines. Every detail is thought through.

I'm led by the guidance of the energy that comes from the group and it's truly a unique and special experience being able to pull out each person's unique talents and abilities over a week-long, intimate setting together. Every level of artist is welcome...yes, even the "I'm not creative" person or the "I've been painting for my whole life" person. My teaching abilities for in-person classes goes beyond technique and into the heart of creativity on an individual level.
The program is truly unique for each retreat.
We stayed at a delightful 18th-century French Manoir with some of the best wines the region has to offer. We visited Limoges, Château de Pompadour, and Ségur-le-Château and got loads of inspiration from the stunning landscapes, rolling hills, fairy tale villages, and chateaus of the area.
We painted the exotic and vibrant elements of Morocco, inspired by the landscapes of Agadir including the High Atlas Mountains seen from our stunning eco-Kabash. We visited the beautiful beachside town of Taghazout, went shopping in a traditional Souk, and adventured out in the fine-grained orange dunes of the Mini Sahara Desert.
We enjoyed a private estate in sunny Andalucía, nestled within Spain's first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. With trips to discover the spectacular “pueblos blancos” of El Gastor, Setenil de las Bodegas, and Ronda, we indulged in tapas, wine tastings, and private chef-made Andalusian and Spanish cuisine.
Painting under the Tuscan sun!! Our home base was a historic estate where we got a taste of authentic Italy. We got our painting inspo from the backyard with stunning views of San Gimignano and the rolling hills of Tuscany. The fine cuisine, wine tasting, and piano nights after the art workshops made this week one to remember.
We stayed at a premium Portuguese Quinta with 2.5 acres of lush Italian gardens, a swimming pool, and gorgeous vistas over the Atlantic coastline. After the painting workshops, we sailed through the hidden grottoes of the Algarve coast and explored the history of the ancient town of Lagos.
