I am a passionate advocate for playful curiosity and living life through daily adventures ~ to see, to experience, to understand and then share the goodness that abounds in this life. It doesn’t matter if it is sketching, smearing gesso, shooting photographs, biking or hiking, writing prose, or sharing a cup of coffee and a heart felt verse...whatever helps to see the world anew everyday -- that is a gift, a daily blessing.
A huge part of that is learning to live life with open & unclenched hands, to follow the divine path wherever it takes me, and remembering to have a bag packed for what’s coming next. I choose to live life with a “Yes” on my lips, a welcoming heart for new friends, and that *adventure* word scribbled at the top of every day’s list.
An assemblage of some (most) favorite things are on their way this fall! My favorite kinds of art...watercolor, mixed media - with fabric, "wild and whirling" words, photography, and art journaling. All the sweet bits I use and adore...brought together for days of creative play.
It is time to visit the Downey Studios, have a workshop of riotous fun with friends and make some delicious new art. Yes!
Autumn and the anticipation of the holiday season is the perfect reason to get together for a creatives weekend away. A art-full-weekend to share in the color, feel, excitement of this time of year...the creative bliss of an especially wonderful studio...and spending a whole weekend together with me+you? Sounds so fun!
This weekend get-away is already written (in hearts) on my calendar. I have some tucked away fall projects and a brand-new winter workshop full of holiday fun that I will bring -- not only to grace our artist hearts but to fill up our creative buckets. We will be creating a collection of goodies ready for our own studios and homes and a special collection ready to gift for the holidays!
If you haven't joined me on an in person workshop/retreat, this will be a great one. An adventure for sure (they always are). I am so excited to meet you! If you are an alumni, I can't wait to get my arms around you! This workshop will be all new content and new surprises (and art supplies) await.
Magic always happens at the Downeys!
I can't wait to see you.

Half-day, full-day, multi-day workshops, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. Once you purchase a workshop you will be enrolled.
If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be put on a waiting list.
Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable.
What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.
In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.
