SOULIO FOR SELF
This is an opportunity to take a deep dive into a hands-on, imaginative world of making things. Creativity and art process offer a window into new ways of seeing ourselves. They invite us to experiment and discover our unique expression, immersing us in vibrant color, texture, and imagery of our own design. Mistakes are impossible as we learn to build up surfaces and use the history of our marks to create rich layered pieces in a playful, non-judgmental setting. Art principles are introduced along with a variety of mixed media techniques including acrylic paint, gels, mediums, image transfer, sanding, texture tools, rubber stamps, and collage. No previous art experience is necessary. Classes and workshops are open to complete beginners and continuing artists of all levels.

Spend a creative 10 days making art and immersing in the rich and spiritual surrounds of Bali. Our home is Villa Bodhi outside of Ubud, where you will be nourished by the slow pace and sultry beauty of Bali. The backdrop is Nyepi, with renewed creative expression and senses awakened!
What deeper story is emerging within you, wanting to find expression? SoulCollage® is a creative, intuitive collage process, a powerful way to embark on this soulful exploration. Through creative inquiry and collage we will journey into the heart of our gifts, passions and purpose to discover what truly brings us alive. We will create cards by gathering images that speak to us. Some we select recognizing immediately how they relate to our lives, while others we have no idea why we chose them- or why they seemed to choose us. Filled with deep personal meaning, our cards offer a visual narrative of our own unique life story. In a supportive, playful and collaborative environment, we’ll step deeper into our cards to see how they relate to our inner and outer worlds. This workshop is open to everyone, no art experience is necessary!

Stunning small art pieces, done on either paper or in three-dimensional box constructions, made by layering collage and treasures and embedding them in glass with copper-foil soldering. This process requires no prior experience - we will give you a quick lesson or finesse it for you!
Cigar boxes offer a wonderful surface and structure for embellishing with collage and paint and hold our keepsakes and treasures.
Using SoulCollage® as a springboard, these intuitively collaged cards tell personal stories, dreams, challenges. Created from our deepest wisdom and unconscious, these artifacts offer valuable insight to guide us. Learn more about my work with SoulCollage®
