The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

~ Marcel Proust ~

I encourage you to have daily adventures in your everyday life by noticing what is around you, expressing yourself creatively, and learning new things. What I wish for you is to see the world through my eyes – to see the beauty, magic, and wonder that I see. And I would love to help you with this… I offer workshops, retreats and mentoring aimed at helping you uncover your own ability to play, explore and visually express yourself, while also connecting deeper to your own soul and to the world around you.

Explore, learn, be creative!

  • Connect to your creativity through connecting to nature.
  • Learn to play and become more open to adventure and exploration.
  • Learn to cultivate a lifestyle of creativity & joy

Join for facilitated Land/Nature outings, experiences and retreats – designed with the aim of helping you to connect more deeply with your outer world as well as your inner creativity – to learn, grow & create the change you want to see in the world.

Land Art sessions

Land art – also called Earth art, environmental art, or nature art – involves the use of local natural materials such as soil, leaves, sand, or rock to create artistic expressions in outdoor spaces. The focus is on having a dialogue with the site or natural elements, and the art itself being temporary – the artwork is destroyed by the wind, incoming tide or by animals, and thus the artwork lives on in the mind of the artist(s) or as a photo, video or sketch.

Explore your creativity and experience the abundance & beauty of our planet and landscapes.

Not only do we not leave a lasting impact on the site, but this way of creating art also emphasizes the impermanence and flux of life – putting into focus how fragile and temporary our lives are in relation to geological time, even though we tend to strive so hard for longevity and eternal youth.

Outdoor sessions to explore & experience deeper connection.

Contact me about facilitating workshops for groups – which could include school kids, students, colleagues, friends or spiritual groups – as immersive experiences in which participants connect to the elements, the environment/site, and then start to have a sensitive dialogue with the land – creating artistic expressions either individually or collectively.

This is a must do experience if you love the outdoors… Janet makes you feel really at ease, and the entire experience is one big reconnection with nature.
