Every year it is always good to start with a fresh inspiration.  This weekend is all about exploring the deeper parts of ourselves and getting the wisdom they have for us for the coming year.   We will follow the paint where it wants to take us and discover strengths and insights our life could use.

I have been teaching this powerful process for over 10 years and it never ceases to amaze me the paintings that want to come.  We all have inner worlds. I teach you how to access and tap into them and discover strengths and wisdom you didn’t know you had. Then you take that wisdom and create a better life

In one short weekend of letting go and playing with paint we can change our lives.  I look forward to painting with you and sharing with you all that I know.  Below are the details for the weekend.  See you all soon.

*If you are from out of town and have always wanted to visit Portland there are lots of airbnb’s around near the studio. Make it a creative getaway to start the New Year off right.


Any one can do this no previous art experience required. I supply everything, all you need to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and enjoy what wants to come.

You will need to bring a sac lunch both days. I will provide healthy snacks and teas.  If you need anything else please bring it.  We will take several breaks including one lunch.

The workshops starts each morning at 10am and goes to 5pm. I ask that you arrive between 9:30 and 9:50 so we can start right on time.  The cost is $180 for first time participants and discounted to $160 for students taking it the second or multiple times. Many of my students have taken it 4 or 5 times.  Each time you go deeper and discover different important things about yourself.  Email

Please email me if you would like to be put on the list. I look forward to painting with you if your new and seeing old friends again.





Announcing my Next Intuitive Painting Weekend “UNLOCKING YOUR CREATIVE DOORS” coming up September 19 – 20, at my studio in North Portland. Mark your calendars and let me know.

Let me know if you are ready to paint, and want to take part in this trans-formative weekend of finding those deep creative parts of your self burred long ago. Can’t wait to see what wants to come.


When I was traveling in Paris and Stockholm this summer I went to all the big Museums and the one thing I learned is that I love my students and my Intuitive Paintings much more than all the greatest art they have. I did love Matisse, Monet, some of Picasso’s, and most of the contemporary art at the Pompidou Center. But most of the art didn’t have the deep heart and soul that my students paintings have or that come from this magical place inside that expresses who we are. This was a huge surprise. This is an important way to paint and one that anyone can do experienced or not. Everyone that has ever wanted to paint should take this workshop and get freer and more confident in their creative approach to art. I have been doing this now for over 10 years and have watched student after student find that deep place inside and unlock tallents they didn’t even know they had.

I can’t wait to share with my students my experiences and how much their art means to me. I predict that in the future there will be an acknowledgement of Intuitive Painting in the museums of the future. These are paintings that are not created to impress or sell or be anything other than the expression of the persons heart. The transformation of the person painting them.

Let me know if you want to join us in September.


Note these two changes when signing up. Costs have changed and you need to make a deposit of $50 to hold your space when you sign up. I’ve had too many people cancel at the last minute and kept someone out that couldn’t take it because the class was full. My classes are very small and limited to 8 students, so when you sign up you take one of the few spots, when you cancel it effects the whole group. So please send me a check or paypal payment to hold your space when you sign up. This deposit is non refundable. The cost for all students new and repeating is now $180. We are going to be painting on a different medium, one that will last, not curl and probably not tear when wet. It is going to be really fun. Looking forward to introducing this new form. You can also use the old style of paper if you wish.

The workshop runs Sept 19-20, Saturday and Sunday, all day from 10-5. The cost includes paints and all art materials, tea and some healthy snacks. Experienced painters and beginners all enjoy this process. It is not about better techniques of painting but more about painting from your authentic heart. All you do is show up, wear old clothes you can get paint on and bring a sack lunch, I will do the rest.

Look forward to hearing from you and painting together soon. Email me at to register and sign up.

As we go into the New Year of 2013 more and more of us are changing the way we do things.  What we need more of this coming year is intuition and how to utilize it in our art and life.  Whether that is painting, writing, dance or even therapy with clients.  Intuitive Painting can open up areas of your consciousness not available to your conscious mind.  This new way of knowing can help you figure out and solve lots of problems you haven’t been able to so far. This is about self discovery, the unknown and not having a plan.  Look for the surprises that come, they have the answers you seek.

Carl Jung and Malcolm Westcot the main researcher in Intuition of our day gave this description of a person that is Intuitive. 11 reasons to develop more intuition in your life and take my workshop.
Intuitive people tend to be:
1. unconventional and comfortable in their unconvention
2. confident
3. self-sufficient
4. emotionally involved in abstract issues, either in intellectual, academic terms or in human values.
5. willing to explore uncertainties and entertain doubts, and able to do so without fear.
6. able to reject or accept criticism as necessary
7. willing to change in ways they deemed appropriate
8. resistant to outside control and direction
9. independent
10. foresighted
11. spontaneous

Join me and a small group of painters for a wonderful weekend of self discovery, inner growth and greater creativity through paint.   The cost is $160 for the 2 days of painting, Saturday and Sunday 10-5.  All paints, materials and inspiration are provided.  All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on and come hold a paint brush and let the paint show you how to access the deep well of your intuition.   Limited to 8 students so save the date and let me know right away so i can put you on the list.

* All repeating students cost is discounted to $100.

To register and ask questions just email me or call me at 503 734-6516 .    Look forward to painting with you in this new year.
