The Italian True Living Experience 

Because there comes a time
that one needs to go




Italy, again and again, is a place that has sparked a revolution in my creative soul...I come home from Italy fully ALIVE on a whole new level. I want to share that with you.

Thoughtfully curated to honor the introvert, this is a deep and soulful experience… (not GO GO GO!) This immersive retreat is a time to live your full life, to be yourself, to connect, to explore alongside me and share deep conversations. I will help you re-connect with your creative soul, your truest self. I’m your girl ;)

Set in the tranquil Mantovan countryside in the ancient Lombardy region of Italy.  I will show you the way I explore and see, collect and incorporate these details into my work. I will teach you techniques and talk through my painting and collage process. You will learn along side me, ask questions, dive deeper. We will have this collaborative creative TIME to make all new art together!

There will be laughing and stories told and... epic new stories made… We are going to let go into vast permission. Dangle our feet in the water.

 Our home base will be a magical private retreat in the tranquil Mantovan countryside. A week of  homemade Italian meals and accommodations (single room occupancy) as well as private transportation on day-trips is included. (airfare not provided)  

There will be an exploration to Lake Garda-so magic- there will be classical music played and Italian food made for us each day.  There will be calm and clarity- water and castles and tall summer grass. 

This is the dreamy time of year to go to Italy (September 18th~25th 2019) after the tourist has headed home and the hot of summer becomes golden and refreshing.

You can put down the phone, pack your bags and share this adventure with me.  

One fair warning, this is a high priced ticket item.  I have offered this experience in Italy only once every 10 years and to a very small group.  This is the ultimate all-inclusive experience, so it isn’t cheap, but I am sure you already knew that.

So go apply now because it is first come first served…Join me on a truly once and a lifetime bucket list explore!



“When it's over, I want to say: all my lifeI was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. When it is over, I don't want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real. I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened,or full of argument. I don't want to end up simply having visited this world.” 

~Mary Oliver

p.s. You do not have to be an artist. You have to be someone who is ready for an Feel Your Life..take your creative expression to another level!


a little more about the area...Mantova, or Mantua, is a beautiful Renaissance city south of Lake Garda in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region. Lakes on three sides keep the city center compact and make it a pleasant place for walking or biking. Mantova was the Italian Capital of Culture for 2016 and is one of Italy’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, inscribed for its Renaissance architecture and city planning.
