A week-long retreat not unlike EncaustiCamp, but richer, deeper, more intimate and therefore more propelling.
Take your place at the table~
The experiences, education, discoveries, explorations; these all come together to make up the unique form of you. For each new generation stories beg to be told in the voice that can be heard and understood. You, artist, are here to tell these stories, in just the way you do, uniquely, so someone else can hear, learn, grow, and go on to tell it to their own tribe. Ask yourself, how do you want to grow and evolve your practice? What do you feel ready to bring to the world? The answers are sometimes blurred by our day-to-day. Listen to Your Life is time, resource, and inspiration to help you crystalize your path. This way we each, and altogether, become what existence is meant to be.
Listen to Your Life.
This week-long retreat is all about painting, creating, discovering, exploring, learning, and revealing all the ways in which your hands can come to tell the story of your life in fresh and enlivening ways so that your world can see, hear, and want, more of that.
Come along; feed your body with good food, movement, and sunshine. Come hungry for the delicious discoveries that await your mind, and feast at the rich banquet prepared for the feeding of your soul.
The time is now.

A live guided group gathering for the month of March to usher in spring!
Each day at 1pm eastern a live YouTube 10+minute exercise to begin a new painting. At the end of the month, as the temperatures warm into spring in this northern hemisphere, you will have before you 31 new places to begin from in your painting and creative practice!
We will use paint (come with whatever medium you have; encaustic, acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel) and charcoal, graphite (pencil), caran d’arche. Mix it up based on what you have in your studio; do not feel you must have these exact materials.
I will work on watercolor paper cut to my desired size, intending a collection of all same size creations. You come with the surfaces and size you want to begin with each day!
This is the second year we will gather this way and feedback has suggested that these creations, and the experience, just get better as you return to them after they’ve had time to rise <3
I look forward to you all and this time that will surely be a little bit of hitting the refresh button for a coming new awakening season of growth.
31 Days of Starts! | Open Studio (pbsartist.com)
Are you trying to get something out, to say something for others to hear, to paint in a way that finally expresses a dimension of yourself, or the world as you see it, with clarity and recognition? Do you struggle to put into form, color, paragraph, line, the images and emotions, experiences and lessons you have lived, yet feel a great passion to do so, so that maybe others, even one, can have this as a road sign on their own journeying?
With depth we get breadth and sustenance. You have accumulated years of material wisdom and technique experience, yet something more is necessary in order to bring the fullest capacity of your personal expression to this experience and wisdom. Now more than even the world that needs to awaken to the necessity of art. As Mary Oliver says, Artists are not here to make the world go round, but forward. Understanding your unique value and purpose that brings you to hold a brush in hand will help you to become an integral element is art’s place to move this world forward now.
We draw our best out of each other. By being together with like-minded companions and committing to the environment created through the gathering together, we most often find what we don’t always realize we went out to seek; the depth of our best expression across the canvas. A soul expression illuminated by this communion with others~

This workshop is designed for painters/artists interested in exploring the fundamental elements that coalesce to create successful encaustic painting. Following a historic overview of encaustic, students will move through a series of guided exercises focusing on studio setup, paint application, and health and safety. With a strong emphasis on approaching wax as a painting media, students become familiar and comfortable with brushwork, fusing, and layering. Additional techniques we explore include collage, printmaking, image transfer, and combining oil and wax. After each demonstration, participants will have hands on time with the wax to explore and examine the characteristics that make wax a unique material to work with, such as opacity, temperature, adhesion, and texture. Artists working in any painting or print discipline will find this workshop an exciting opportunity to grow their visual vocabulary with wax. This workshop is ideal for beginner to intermediate students.
