How to cultivate a unique and compelling style

In this intimate and transformative retreat... we will spend our days surrounded by the tranquil and inspiring splendor of the Irish countryside... far away from life's daily distractions... as we nurture our creative work, create a series of encaustic paintings and work together to elevate every aspect of your creative practice. 

Encaustic Art Studio

We will be working in the charming and well equipped encaustic studio located on the EOM campus. 

Each student will have an opportunity for private coaching with me as we work together to cultivate, identify and refine your unique style of expression and work on elevating your overall presentation as an artist. 


This group has a limited number of participants to allow time for one-on-one coaching and deep creative sessions in the studio.

Beyond your artwork ...we will review and develop your portfolio, social media pages, website and artist statement to clarify your vision, elevate your profile and further define your voice as an artist.

In addition to our creative studio sessions, there will be plenty of time for lingering over meals, gathering around the hearth and wandering the nearby beaches and trails.

“Each of us is an artist of our days; the greater our integrity and awareness, the more original and creative our time will become.”
~ John O'Donohue
