Painting for Purpose
Have you ever wanted to have a special painting or paintings in your home, your office or for someone special? Or have you struggled to find just the right piece of art for your home, or you just can’t find the right style, the right colours or at the right price?
You have thought about having a painting or paintings commissioned but don’t really know how to explain what you want or maybe you don’t even know for sure?
Would you like the opportunity to explore your creativity whilst painting something that has meaning for you? Have you felt a little intimidated by formal art classes or don’t have the time or desire to get that involved? Or have you dreamed of having art in your home that you have created, to suit your décor, your style and have pieces that speak to you and feel good to create?
If you answered yes to any of these questions and you are based on the Sunshine Coast then my Painting for Purpose workshops are for you…
As an Interior Designer and Artist I am in a unique position to be able to not only bring your ideas to life and help you to create some special pieces of art but also to help you to decide what will work best in your spaces both in style and also colours. All materials will be supplied including an apron – all you need to bring are your ideas and the surface you wish to paint on (canvas, paper, wood panel etc).
These workshops go over three weeks – to allow you the time to create one major piece or multiple pieces depending on the style and detail of the paintings.
These workshops are a unique offering and class sizes will be limited to six and will run weekly for 2-2.5hrs per week for three weeks.
These are not traditional art lessons – whilst you will learn some painting techniques and also pick up some new skills and learn some basic painting principles this is not an art lesson, more of a creativity exploration.
***If you are interested in these unique workshops, I recommend gathering your ideas, swatches, images you like plus photos of your spaces so you will come to my first workshop armed with ideas even if you don’t quite have a direction as yet. This will greatly help me to narrow down what direction you should take.
This workshops are collaborations, so you will always have my advice and direction to help you to create some beautiful pieces of art.
Some of the reasons why you should attend are
- It is a low-cost way to add some unique paintings to your life that you created
- You have the chance to explore your creative side
- Opportunity to meet new people
- Create pieces of art specific to you for you or your home or as a gift
- Discover a new hobby, talent or obsession
- Join with a friend and create some great memories as well as special art…
PS – don’t forget to tell your friends…

COVID - in the case that there is an unavoidable Covid Lockdown
A lot of time, effort and expense goes into my events so no refunds can be offered as this situation is completely out my control.
I understand that the rescheduled date may not suit everyone but unfortunately I can only reschedule once. It is a lot of work for me to reschedule events as my calendar is worked well in advance.
In the case of ‘After School Classes’ I will be creating videos for home activities where necessary.
Thank you for your understanding in these uncertain times.
