Join me  for a 2 day workshop plein air  painting  at my home studio situated on 40 acres overlooking farm land 4 km out of Dongara. For those that will be traveliing a distance I am opening up my house for free accommodation to stay for the nights you need  to.

We will take in the amazing views and create our own semi- abstract view on canvas of the surrounds. We can head down to  the river to the with the beautiful river gums or perch high on the hill overlooking the valley.

We will discuss composition, excercises in mark making , colour harmony and how to translate your creative ideas on canvas.

Take home a beautiful finished artwork.


A super fun 2 days being immersed in creativity and the beautiful country side.


Mix and meet like minded  creative souls who would love some time out of our busy schedules simply enjoy creating on canvas


Beginners I absolutely love – you will be so amazed as your unlock your inner artist and express your creativity.

All levels are welcome. Tip – you must be prepared to let go, be brave, go with the flow.


“Paint with passion. Paint with an unknown destination. Let loose, play a little, be spontaneous.  This is where the magic happens…”


Two full days of  of fun, laughs and new friendships.


I am always incredibly excited  to be part of a students journey into  re-discovering  their path of creativity.. ..


I would love to meet you.
