I am so happy to be able to offer these workshops and painting sessions with you. I believe making time for our SOUL is so important, as is making authentic connections with others. CREATIVITY is such a beautiful way to do this! I believe we are all inherently creative... some of us have just forgotten or let our inner critic get too bossy. In the end... it doesn't even matter what you create, the satisfaction is in being willing to give it a go... It's amazing what you can learn along the way.
See below for some insights from my last group workshop, and to hear what others have said about my painting sessions.
"The workshop with Meredith urged me and encouraged me to simply put paint on a canvas. I turned a corner, pushed through fear and layers of sadness and loss. She listened to me and affirmed my apprehensions, while gently guiding and advising me. I experienced a relief and a quiet joyfulness I have not felt in long time. I also created two paintings, my paintings !
The workshop is an creative and inspiring experience. Meredith provides a physical and metaphysical space to be free and unfettered, authentic and expressive. She also provides some beautiful, practical and personalised tools to take with you. I was and remain rejuvenated, my spirit lifted beyond words.
Essentially, I now look forward to more paintings, my paintings !
A resounding thank you, Meredith."
"So today this happened, after having not picked up a brush or dipped my fingers in paint for years. FUN!! Painted directly from my intuition, I love it! It looks so much prettier (and smaller) in real life!
Having no attachment to a visual outcome is so foreign to me! Completely letting go and painting from my heart was magic! Can you see the angel? She appeared by accident, perfectly. Thank you Meredith for being such a divine guide and artist, along side me!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time with you and gained a lot from our session. I feel much more trusting of myself and less afraid to leap into my art, knowing I am truly supported on all levels. Your session gave me a lot more confidence. You also inspired me to set up a proper comfortable space, music included. Ill send you a shot of it.
Thanks also for the paint advice I will certainly order from blick. I am going to take your good advice re the art journalling too. I will make up a bank of sketches of shapes and objects that I can use in my artwork. I'm sure that will improve my drawing skills as well."
