Spring is an opportunity to plant the seeds and begin to nourish your inner artist. What do you need to find flow? How can you give yourself the nurture that you need to build a regular creative practice? 

After the darkness of Winter, the light returns and there is so much to notice in the freshness of the dawn of the year. It is time to celebrate the new and embrace change .... how will you let that into your life?

Art and Wellbeing Retreat

Held in a 16th century building with views across the beautiful Derbyshire Dales this two-day retreat will give you the time and space to embrace the season in a curated, multi-sensory day of noticing, ritual and art making.

Draw the Season

An in person one day workshop to get you past fear of the white page and embracing mixed-media sketchbooks.

Held in a light studio overlooking the River Trent you will gather, look, draw and collage with a series of invitations to draw bolder and find your sketchbook flow.


Community through creativity is important to me. When you sign up for an online course you get to join my online forum, The Nurtured Artist.

I write to share my Meditations on Creativity and those who subscribe receive a monthly mini-lesson and inspiration, directly to their inbox.

I create mixed-media art inspired by the changes in the landscape through the seasons. Nature connects me to myself and colour helps me express from my soul. You can find my originals, limited edition and open edition prints here.

To make art you have to be a maverick. There’s not much point just mimicking – the best outcomes come from questioning the source and following your own intuition. You have to get comfortable with breaking the rules and go in an independent direction.
