I am a certified teacher of Intentional Creativity® and the Colour of Woman® Painting method founded by US Artist and poet, Shiloh Sophia McCloud. Since graduating in 2013 I have taught consistent classes for women and girls and witness daily the healing and transformational power of art. Intentional Creativity is a global art movement changing the lives of thousands of people and it is a great honour to have Earth Circle Studios acting as an International Training School for the Intentional Creativity® Teacher Training. Intentional Creativity® is one of the primary methods woven through many of my offerings.
"Everything within us, past, present, and future lives in story. When we create around our story, we gain clarity. When we create with intention, we activate both sides of the brain. When we activate our brain, we gain greater access to our own information, how to articulate it and how to move it from the stuck places.
Creating with intention is simply working with mindfulness in whatever we set our hands to. Whether it is creating a soup, a garden, a business plan or a painting. We are more present because we choose to be and the results are different than if we are not paying attention. Intentional Creativity is an approach to creating that yields greater access to who we are now and who we are becoming, and what is possible for us and our unfolding future." (Shiloh Sophia, founder)
I am passionate about teaching Intentional Creativity. For me it's all about access. I often get asked how I come up with ideas for my work and my response is always 'access'. Access to hidden parts of the heart and soul, to the collective consciousness, to dreams and visions - and then using that as content, whether it be a painting a piece of writing, a workshop design, anything! Intentional Creativity® is innovative, can be used in any context and setting and is at the cutting edge of creative practice in the 21st century.

The Colour of Woman™ method is a 13- step Intentional Creativity® painting process. It is through working within the structure of these steps that anybody, even if you have never picked up a paintbrush before, is able to create a unique painting that most often focuses on healing images of women. Women all over the world are creating a new image of themselves and the world around them by re-imagining and bringing to life paintings of women that are authentic, empowered and honest. This method allows one to take a deeper look into the heart of self and to then translate that with paints and brushes.
You can browse the Colour of Woman School for more information and to also make application for the teacher training.
Soulscape aims to assist you in creating images that come from developing a deep, intimate relationship with both inner and outer worlds and merging the two . It is where earth connection meets creative expression; where the stories of our soul unfold to create a conceptual, symbolic visual narrative. Not unlike intuitive methods, it is a process whereby the canvas often informs the artist; the story unfolding layer-by- layer, mark by mark. It is also the place where we can learn to translate our inspirations from the outside world in our own unique way. Soulscape aims to help you unfold and develop a narrative through instinctive and spontaneous mixed media painting processes. It teaches you to let go of expectation, to surrender to what is and to allow the creative current to flow.
