Painting Retreats

Paint with me in my Whidbey Island Studio


Join me in my studio on beautiful Whidbey Island, at the mouth of the Puget Sound in Washington State. During our days together we will dive into color, and come away with easy techniques for blending colors. You will learn to let go of inhibitions and find your voice in free-style, heart-driven painting techniques. While you are here, we will gather 'round my dining room table, drink wine and eat healthful, yummy food that I have lovingly prepared from my mother's recipes. You'll have a chance to walk the beach to gather pieces of driftwood, agates and rusty bits – and you'll go home with multiple paintings.


Learn how to create colorful, joyful free-style paintings with just a touch of realism.


Dreamy Landscapes

Wash layers of fluid acrylics to create landscapes with depth and movement. You can leave the background as is for a pure abstract painting, or add details such as a tree, a figure, hills or water for an impressionistic landscape.

Wild Hair

Create whimsical women with colorful hair and soulful eyes. Make them realistic or push the colors towards fantastical mermaids.

Dance With Color

Create dynamic backgrounds that dance with color then use them to draw out the colorful essence of shapes using fluid acrylics. You will come away with 2 paintings shining with color.

Retreats are offered several times a year and tend to fill up quickly. I will announce them as soon as they are open in my newsletter. If you’d like to be the first to know about upcoming retreats, please join below!
