Lectures, Talks and Tutorials
I have over 30 years' experience inspiring, challenging and facilitating the personal and creative development of others in vocational and non-vocational settings.
In addition to holding a Masters Degree in Fine Art, I am a fully qualified art teacher (with full QTS), and mindful creativity coach with a long term background in mindfulness and Buddhist meditation practices, including being a Buddhist nun for seven years. Over 30 years as a self-employed professional artist, teacher and coach have given me a good understanding of the nuances of balancing the challenges facing a fine artist.
An invited speaker at conferences, art organisations and Channel 4, I am open to invitations to speak and run workshops, seminars and courses on the following subjects:
Art as part of a spiritual path
Art and secular mindfulness
Tibetan Buddhist Thangkha painting practice
Developing a creative practice as a visual artist, including creating a business plan
Mindful approaches to working with creative blocks and resistances
I also offer deep listening with inspiring, encouraging and thoughtful guidance in a range of vocational and non-vocational settings including group seminars, individual tutorials and mindful creativity coaching.
I am very interested in working with interesting and unusual ethical projects in the UK or internationally. Email or phone - let's talk!
