Courses, workshops and experiences to empower your creative spirit
Welcome to my 2023 Creativity Programme! I’m pleased to again be offering workshops and courses in both Kapiti, Wellington and online this year.
A bit about me: I’m an abstract painter, writer and digital producer. I’m passionate about all aspects of creativity and I incorporates the practice of mindfulness into my signature Mindful Creativity courses. I am also a people leader and over the last fifteen years I’ve led, coached and developed creative professionals in Sydney, Singapore and Wellington.
I’m passionate about helping others to explore their creative spirit. My courses invite you to explore elements of creativity, leadership, wellness, personal evolution, digital savvy and artistic expression.
