Examples of Art Influenced by Nature
Exploring nature in art is one way of infusing the beauty and healing properties that nature has to offer.
I especially love combining art making with journaling. I find it to be a powerful pairing that takes my creative journey to a deeper level. In this experience, you will learn about creativity and about yourself at the same time. It really is a combination like no other, and I can’t wait to show you why I love it.
The best part is that you don’t need have a creative bone in your body to make art. The workshops are designed for beginner and experienced creatives alike. The most important part is that you’re showing up and being fearless in your willingness to try.
What past retreat attendees are saying
I love art, writing, learning new techniques and having life’s mundane churned up to create a fresh perspective, all alongside other women who want to do the same. This is a tall order and yet Lulu’s retreat fulfilled these desires and more.
I enjoyed a weekend in a beautiful, spacious home with tasty and nourishing meals provided. Through the meditation, intuitive writing and art journal excercises, I unexpectedly found much sought after freedom, love and comfort in an area of life I had remained stuck in. This could only have happened in an atmosphere that felt safe enough to be artistically expressive. There was a perfect balance of feeling relaxed, yet motivated to explore the weekend themes of body, mind and spirit.
Lulu knows how to create a space where women from different generations feel welcomed, valued and understood. I enjoyed the sense of community offered in group circle time, around the meal table or pottering through art supplies during the evening freetime. I also enjoyed reflective time alone, simply sitting in the garden, wondering what the colours of tulips yet to unfold may be, and how these thoughts were symbolic of my life.
I recommend a retreat like the one Lulu provided for any woman who wishes to delve into their life more deeply using artistically expressive means while enjoying a break from the usual demands of life. I arrived back home feeling refreshed and wish the same for other women.
When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.

More retreat love
My favorite part of the weekend was the painting. I’m hanging my picture in my townhouse downtown and ordered a large canvas to do an intuitive painting for the main room!
I liked that we did the writing, dancing, and the visionbook. The variety kept me stimulated.
I was intially worried it would be all younger women and I really liked that it was all age groups sharing with each other!
I really liked the casual accepting nature of this workshop. I really felt filled up and left feeling good about myself and others.
