About Paint Awake™

Experience creative exploration and joyfulness through intuitive art.

Paint Awake™ offers a variety of art-based workshops, private sessions, retreats, and classes, all of which are built around creativity coaching and intuitive art-making. We encourage creativity and embolden intuition, bringing out amazing imagery and leaving participants with a refreshing sense of flow -- even after they leave the studio.


Participants learn basic techniques, are taught how to access the "zone", tap their creative side at will, let go of control and analysis, quiet the inner critic, and express their unique visual voice spontaneously and without judgment. To access and fully trust our creative intuition, we focus on:

  • Finding Your Bliss in the Zone
  • Letting Go of Control and Trusting Your Intuition
  • Turning Comparison into Celebration
  • Creating Freely Without Judgement

Each session is brimming with inspirational guidance, creativity coaching, relaxation tools, and plenty of time for hands-on art-making. Participants are grateful to quiet their inner critic and simply enjoy nourishment from the process. Here's what they've said:
