Join me on a journey into the forest to gather the wisdom of the trees. There is just something magical about trees, they are a part of our lives, they are one of the worlds most amazing givers, clean air through their life cycle, the filtering of water through their roots, the calming effect of the sound of a soft breeze through their leaves and the thankful shade on a lazy summer day. We have watched then grow as our life has grown, we have admired them from a distance and studied them up close. They supply an unlimited amount of grounding energy and for some of us, hugging them brings us back to center.

In this workshop series, we will explore the wisdom that the trees impart to each of our lives, through art and the written word. We will create a book filled with pages of your art and your heart. I encourage you throughout the workshop, to let yourself go, be creative, think outside of the box, do your own thing to make this book yours. Every prompt is a starting point; the pages I guide you through can be approached just as they are or feel free to step out there and change them up. I encourage you to reach into your creative reservoir and express the wisdom that abides in the trees, through this Word To Live Book. In this “Wisdom of the Trees” book, there will be eight prompts, within each prompt you will create one or two spreads. I have videos, written instructions, images, templates and more to guide you; we will fill the visual journal, all pages, with the Wisdom of the Trees for each of our lives.

As an artist, I endeavor to express my love of life in each of my pieces. As a teacher, I believe that being creative is a choice and anyone who chooses to take that leap into feeling free to express their artistic abilities will have fun and make their own unique art. When I teach my workshops, I enjoy the meditative properties of doing art. It is an opportunity to learn about yourself. My husband, our three dogs are now full time RVer’s. We travel. We enjoy spending time outdoors, smore’s by the fire, hikes, creating art, teaching classes and throw in the vast beauty of the natural world around us, our life is good!
