intuitive art workshops

Weekly retreats in the South of France.

Tune to your creative self without worrying about technique nor aesthetics. You will play with clay, fabrics, paints, writing, etc. 

Introductory level.


Program geared toward women's styles of self-expression. 

No spiritual lecturing, no recipes for happiness - just art, more art, and listening to your gut and senses.

Five participants max

Intuitive art

is a process disconnected from the intellect, from our addiction to plans and goals. 

We mute our nasty inner juge and trust  our gut when it says: "I know".

We don't ask: "is this the right thing to do?", "what will people think?" We simply do it, weaving play and dream. As a child would, unafraid, we know what is meant to be.

Intuitive art is a different experience for every person

"A step into the unknown"

"A mediation on self-compassion" 

"A voyage to invisible worlds" 

"A dance on my own rhythm"

"A primal flow of inner wisdom"

"I grew up in forêt de Grésigne. I moved to Canada and taught adults for twenty years, in Vancouver.

Once an empty nester, I flew back home and opened les Arteliers. I offer a safe space where to tap into your inner richness and power. Relax and trust yourself.

My motto: French food, wine, sunshine, art and slow life."
