Kind Words from Course and Retreat Participants
"My Emerging Woman Art Journey has been incredible and has changed me. I believe that this is a must do for all women. Having not done any kind of painting since being in school I was nervous and shy, but within minutes of being at the studio Lisa's warm, gentle nature and gorgeous, nourishing food made me feel completely relaxed. I didn't just leave with a piece of my own artwork, Lisa's guidance has triggered a creative flow within me that has given me back my strength and self-belief. She is remarkable and I can't thank her enough."

Lisa is authentic, heart-centred, and holds space exquisitely, I always feel heard and witnessed by her. I love her joyful attitude of playful reverence. I also love how she listens so deeply to myself and other members of the course. When I’ve got stuck, she’s never attempted to “fix” me, she just gently encourages me to keep on.

“Painting with Lisa was a beautiful unfolding. Rather than instruction or direction it felt like an invitation, an opportunity to discover what is really here. I was developing the ability to listen deeper. I found the whole experience liberating, sometimes frustrating, but liberating. I become BOLD with my brush strokes. Now I have a piece of artwork that I am delighted with. This is a first and cause for celebration.”
- Kacie Walker, Adelaide, Australia
“I was blown away by the levels Lisa's courses opened in me and my life. New levels of seeing, knowing, and much healing coming home around right relationship to the masculine, within myself. Being on a physical retreat with Lisa is a profound and beautifully held space. And has been one of the greatest gifts to me in recent years. I highly recommend diving in even if you're the tiniest bit drawn to this.”

In the Studio
“It was so much more than just learning to paint. Lisa is so welcoming and provides a safe space for self-discovery and the unravelling of self-limiting beliefs. Mindful meditation, sincere conversations and the sharing of simple techniques gave me the opportunity to access my inner feelings and express those through painting. I was amazed at what I had created from a blank canvas!”
Denise Chiltern - Executive Coach for Woman in Business
“I came out with a surprisingly lovely painting, which I shall always treasure. On a spiritual level I came out with so much more. I find this difficult to put into words, as it is almost intangible. But somehow through the process I found exactly what I needed to move my life forward. Truly a life changing experience. Thank you so much Lisa. You are a very special lady.”
- Miranda Vero, Bristol, UK
“Lisa is a facilitator of deep Beauty, deep truth, allowing and gently guiding the process in creativity. She is a wise woman and a deep sister, holding my hand as I journey within and bring that all out. Since being on the retreat, a burst of creativity has opened, giving me the courage and self-belief to take forward my own work.”
- Jenny Hampton, Whitchurch, UK
“I unexpectantly got the chance to paint with Lisa on her life changing retreat trip to Nepal. My heart had been pulled to book onto one of her two day art courses but I had succumbed to my resistance and fear and convinced myself that I hadn't got a painting in me. So I never booked.
Then in Nepal, when our travel plans got disrupted due to fuel shortages, Lisa in her indomitable creative love, immediately responded with setting up a four day mini painting retreat in the beautiful city of Bhaktapur. With Lisa there with me every step of the way. I discovered I could let go and a beautiful aspect of me did emerge onto the canvas. I brought my painting home with me and months later I still sit in front of it and connect with the beauty of my inner essence. If like me you have lots of ' I couldn't do that'. Give yourself the gift of letting Lisa's beautiful soul assist you.”
