I have taught in many beautiful places within Australia and I would now like to invite you to INDIA

India has inspired me since 2005 where I have returned each year to paint and draw and be inspired by the beauty and candour of the people, the vibrancy of the culture, colours, arts and crafts, festivals, food, music and spirituality. I am so excited to share this experience with you and hope you experience as much joy and creativity as I have over the years.
Please join us for two new tours we are piloting to India.
These adventure Art tours  have been beautifully prepared, are thought provoking and designed for those who like to be personally and creatively challenged. After many journeys to India I welcome you to participate in our first pilot tour to Gujarat – home to stunning tribal textiles and to Rajasthan, where we are piloting a Mother – Daughter tour – but if you do not fit into this category, please email me and I am sure we can accommodate you
