My Space therapeutic and art retreat

Sunday, 26th July 2020 until Thursday, 30th July 2020

There is a growing understanding of the impact of creativity and the environment on health and wellbeing. My Painting Retreats are designed to renew your mind, heart and spirit midst the most beautiful count of Cornwall. Connect with your creativity and renew your spirit and recharge your batteries. My Space Art Retreats aim to invigorate and transform you way of thinking and looking at the environment and yourself. The focus is on you as an individual and your creativity.  My work is often a response to a moment in time, a scene. I look, observe, visually recording in my mind but more importantly storing the feeling I am experiencing from within.When I sell my work I do not expect anyone else to share the feeling I have experienced but I would like them to just enjoy the outcome. However I do challenge anyone to look at the sea, the sand, the sky and the land, to close your eyes and take in a large, deep breath and then open your eyes and observe, observe not only the scene but the feeling.
