I want you to know what lights you up and to feel an inner knowing about who you are deep inside. I want you to stop walking through life in a constant fog, waiting for the right time to focus on you again.
When someone asks you what you enjoy, I want your eyes to smile as you give them a clear and easy answer. You deserve a life that feels inexplicably and inexcusably YOURS, where you feel in control and in charge.
I know first hand what it feels like to not know who you are, to lose yourself in life’s pressures, and to wake up not knowing what would make you happy. I know the toll it can take over time.
It wasn’t until I learned how being creative could cause dramatic shifts in my thinking, that I noticed significant changes in my life. I went from never being creative as an adult, to wanting and needing to create on a regular basis! Now I paint as a means of self-care, self-love, self-healing and self-preservation.
By turning on the artist inside of me, I found myself again, and so can you.
I believe everyone has within them creativity that wants to be expressed, and regardless of your skill level, you were born to create. You do NOT need to call yourself an artist to do this course. You can paint! In fact, the less you are tied to the outcome, the easier it will be for you.
This course is self-paced, so you can move as slowly or as quickly as you like. You can work on one step per week, or several steps in one weekend, wherever and whenever the Muse calls.
The supply list details all of my suggestions, along with the specific materials I will be working with, but you may use whatever supplies you have on hand. The process is the same, no matter your tools.
If you are looking to reconnect with your creative self, if you want to be more creative, but don’t know where to start, or if you want help tapping into the voice that lives inside, you will benefit from this process.
This is not an art course that is designed to teach you the fine art of painting. While I will be sharing with you tips and helpful tricks to create your archetype, I am not a professionally trained artist, and that is not my skill set. If you are looking for fine art techniques, this is not the course for you. However, if you are looking for inquiry-based ways to USE your artistic talents, then you are in the right place.
"I was able to reach back and feel a part of me that I did not know was there, to create a beautiful piece of artwork that truly spoke to me. I now have a passion for stopping, meditating and envisioning my feelings into something real. This has been an incredible experience."
"Going into the program, I was a little unsure as to what to expect. But from the moment it began to the moment it ended Amanda made it an extremely memorable experience. From the meditation, to the art itself, she awakened my ability to vision so that It could connect to me emotionally and mentally."
"Through the love and hate, in the end, my muse came out beautiful, just the way she was meant to be with flaws and all. It was an amazing process."
Hello, I’m Amanda.
I am a stay-at-mom who left a career behind, only to lose myself in motherhood. I was like SO many women out there - feeling unsatisfied, unhappy, and alone - and not knowing why.
Luckily, I found a way out of the darkness. I discovered my own creative potential, and the power it held within me.
By adding art, drawing, and painting into my daily living, I slowly developed a creative practice, and I began to heal my anxiety, my worry, and my sadness.
I fell in love with my creative expression, and it continues to support me every day.
I am passionate about helping women find their voices.
In my paintings, and my work, I help women empower themselves with unapologetic authenticity, to reclaim their right to themselves and their own self-preservation.
My offerings are designed to reconnect women to their truest selves, to enable them to fulfill their deepest wants and needs.
I want women to feel supported, validated, and seen. I hold space for women to access self-love, to experience transformation, and to do things they never believed, but secretly wished, they could do.
