About The Teacher

At a very young age, drawing was prominent in my soul. After years of seeking, experimentation and researching while working in art materials retail, 2004 brought on the opportunity to develop a new art school for Curry's Art Supplies Ltd., and it was a great blessing. I believe my subsequent collaborations with notable Canadian artists was critical to the development of my own artistic style. During my time at Curry's and later at Tri-Art Mfg., I had the good fortune to become a recognized art products specialist and educator, lecturing and presenting at respected international art trade shows throughout Canada and the United States.

In 2007 I founded Shared Palette, an interactive art entertainment venture for events. Shared Palette has been, and remains dearest to my heart. It is a wonderful forum in which guests at special events participate in creating extraordinary, collaborative artworks.

On a personal note, I have been a featured artist in a number of Canadian publications, filmed two online classes with Craftsy/Bluprint, and have participated in numerous exhibitions. Compassion for the natural world has resulted in my works being published, commissioned, and privately collected.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
