The Painted Abstract Art Workshop


7 in stock

Location – Burke St Appin NSW 2560. Appin is about an hours drive south of Sydney.

DATE – Sunday 21 January 2018

Do you ever feel like you just want to create a painting that looks good as an abstract but can’t seem to just paint it? I would love to share some easy refreshing ways to just paint freely and to create balance. Abstract art is about creating balance and having a great sense of movement around the canvas, I would love for you to come long and enjoy a day of painting in this style of emotional exploration.

This workshop is about stepping forward and painting freely and from the messiness you will begin to see what opportunities come from the marks that you have made. I will be encouraging you to dive deep, pushing and pulling the paint, dabbing, rolling, running hands down the canvas, or whatever comes naturally to you.

Do any of these sound like you?

Nothing’s happening. I don’t know where to go from here. My painting looks terrible. What do I do next?


I reckon I could paint an abstract and then you give it a go and it doesn’t quite have the grunt that you would have liked it to have because it appeared to be easy to paint one.


I would love to just paint an artwork of “beautiful chaos” but I wouldn’t know the first thing about abstract painting.

In this workshop the painted abstract I will take you through the steps I use to create layers and movement and show you the techniques in painting abstractly.

Having had more than 10 years experience and overcoming the voice of self-doubt and fear, I can now trust in my process of creating something beautiful and precious to me filled with words and etchings, colour pops and drippy paint runs representing mystery and letting go.

So if you are willing to walk the artist’s journey that is filled with the ups and downs, the joys and the frustration to finally find balance and a feeling of acceptance and love, then this workshop is for you.
