I have been teaching painting as a creative therapy process for nearly 30 years with more than a thousand people participating in my programs over that time. Whilst many have gone on to become multi award winning artists my main goal has always been to help people use creative processes to connect with their inner creative self and learn to become more free, authentic and fulfilled in their lives. As well as running my own private programs I have trained and worked for many years as an arts worker, working with people with serious mental health issues and also operated a bushwalking nature tourism business for many years. In this course I bring all this experience together, along with my experience as a highly successful artist, to support you to use art and creativity to connect more deeply with your deep ecological self and feel more connected to nature and the landscape. Something I feel is essential if we are address the problems that beset us such as climate change and zoonotic diseases.
