Express Your SELF and Revive Your SPIRIT

I believe passionately that creativity is as essential to our spirit as the air we breath.
Honour your SELF, find your creative voice and liberate that creative spark that's trapped within

Come On The Adventure Of A Lifetime

Shine! You are no help to the universe playing small, and in so doing, you give others permission to shine too
— adapted from Marianne Williamson

My workshops offer a deeply nourishing experience that gives you permission to loosen up, embrace colour and express your creative voice. It doesn't matter where you are on your creative journey as the focus on releasing blocks, listening to your spirit, finding what ignites your artistic soul and experiencing authentic ME time in a totally non-judgmental way. In a beautiful, inspiring and lovingly creative environment, our glorious days of painting are a full immersion into colour and heartily supported by food, music, the companionship of like-minded souls and our beloved working dog. I offer a number of different workshops and a mentoring program from jumping creek studio, near warrandyte, on the bushy fringes of Melbourne and the gateway to the yarra valley, victoria and all workshops are limited in number.  The journey to expressing your SELF is the ride of a lifetime PLUS you always take home a big beautiful ready-to-hang HERO painting.

Shani’s workshops are nothing short of a creative breakthrough experience!
