Let’s create beautiful abstract paintings together!

Untamed Paint is the perfect opportunity to take those beauiful marks, colors, and patterns out of your journal and onto the canvas.  You don’t need any prior experience or knowledge of paint, just a willingness to show up and play!

Join us Friday, May 15th from 12 – 5pm EST!

I’ll help you break the abstract painting process into fun steps. 

Create gorgeous swaths of color. 

Use brushes and tools in new ways to make beautiful, playful marks.

Layer marks, color, and texture. 

Learn how to pull it all together into a cohesive art piece. 

Tell your stories with beautiful color scapes, mark making, and patterns.

Untamed Paint is a retreat you participate in from the comfort of your own art space.

Join in a group of welcoming artists and take your abstract paintings to the next level in a playful, judgment-free zone.

“I really enjoy group art work and have a difficult time finding others. Sometimes we have to go a little further to find our tribe which the internet has successfully been able to do. 🙂 My own creativity has been sparked. Friday’s retreat grounded me in knowing that creativity does not need to be bogged down by supplies. In using a few good quality items we were able to get off the ground to engage in the creative process of mystery. Thank you for that.”

– Pamela Swafford

“I like how so many of us women are now able to come to the table together and not make excuses for what we are producing. I used to think that being vulnerable could be a weakness. Now I look at vulnerability in my art more as a strength. I am ‘allowed’ to be vulnerable to my art. It makes me stronger. My art feels stronger. I am happier with my art as well. There is strength in women!”

– Deborah Wakefield

“Thanks so much for a fruitful ‘playshop.’ The group was so generous and keen to try all you had to offer. The pump is primed!”

– Anne O’Connor

“This morning’s retreat was enjoyable, fun and important for me. Thank you for guiding me to open myself to uncomfortable art exercises.  I was able to ‘just do it’ and the thumbnail practices have showed me a way to both make art on a daily basis and to go further with my art.”

– Rita Reid


“Thank you sooo much for the wonderful experience, I was nourished and inspired throughout the afternoon, and got so much out of the retreat. I am taking away permission to create and make mistakes (my oops!) and am incorporating more sketching, noting, and playing into my days.”

– Lynn Pollack


Do I need prior art or painting experience to participate?

No, whether you’ve never painted before, or you are an experienced artist, this day-long retreat is structured to provide you the space to learn to see in new ways, and opportunities to translate those new visions onto your fluid art paintings. 

Are the materials provided?
You will provide your own materials. Our goal is to take advantage of the simplicity of only using pen and watercolor to focus on nature’s beauty and the mindful process.
What is your refund policy?
No refunds will be granted, regardless of reason. If I have to cancel for any reason, your money will be refunded.
What kind of internet connection do I need?
You’ll need a strong internet connection and the camera and microphone that are built into your device. You may also want headphones to help reduce noise.
