Discover Yourself Creatively

I would recommend this experience to everyone, whether they paint or not, as it helps bring out the creative in you and gives you the gift of time, to focus on your inner thoughts and feelings.
— Maggi Olson, Canada

Escape from the stress and routine of every-day-life and join a circle of like-hearted people to experience an amazing, magical journey into the mystery of your own creative intuition. Reconnect to your passion, express yourself fully and freely, and ignite your creative spark.


Paint Awake™ serves artists and non-artists alike Unlike art classes many of us have experienced, in Paint Awake™ creative wellness workshops and retreats, we focus solely on the process instead of the product. This allows us to stay outside of judgement while we apply colors and forms freely.  We practice staying mindful and curious in each moment.  The process becomes almost like dreaming - images and colors bubble up, expand, take shape, and morph - without any preconceived expectations. Learn more about Our Approach and read over a decade of testimonials.

Paint Awake™ has been delivered to thousands of individuals and groups for growth and inspiration since 2001.

Experience Creative Wellness.

Our paintings provide visual stories, offering insights about our dreams and hopes from the perspective of our own intuitive wisdom.  Benefits extend well beyond our time in the painting studio, as we discover how creative intuition brings ease and flow into other parts of our lives.

So many people tell me they are not artistic and yet - after just one intuitive art class - immediately resonate with the deep, personal gifts possible through a creative process.

Feed your creative fire, find your flow, and free your inner muse.

Get colorful in your quest for larger-than-life experiences, while growing your artistic side and honoring your need for self-care.

Using intuitive art-making principles and creative play to shift back into wholeness, you can truly relax and let go. You'll move through fears and blocks to reveal your unstoppable creativity and unique visual voice. 

The intuitive painting process delivers profound personal and artistic breakthroughs. Our time together will be unlike anything you have ever experienced, rich with laughter, surprise & delight.

Making art intuitively quickly becomes a metaphor for life. Like the saying “the way you do anything is the way you do everything”, what you bring to the canvas highlights what you bring into relationship with yourself.

The studio becomes the perfect environment for releasing inhibitions, growing intuition, practicing self-kindness, and experiencing inner joy.
