WELCOME to Soulful heART Studio where:  

deborah3Expressive Arts = CREATIVITY.  And, Intuitive Painting = LOVE, JOY, RELAXATION and HEALING!

Are you ready to listen to and believe in your intuition – the voice of your heart and soul?  Are you ready to dismiss your inner critic… that judging voice which causes frustration and pain?  Are you feeling – like you are not enough?  Are you ready to bravely enter into a portal of creativity and imagination? Are you ready to invest time for an adventure with yourself; whether it’s the joyous feeling you experience while creating with amazing art supplies expressing personal stories about your life, or just letting your free spirit take over while moving your body with dance movements?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then YOU deserve the opportunity to gift yourself time by participating in one of my Expressive Arts classes, workshops, or retreats listed below.  No ART experience necessary to have a FUN time!

That “reason is:  To decide what you will do with what you have right now.

 Not what you thought you’d have, not what you were promised but didn’t get,

not what you hope to have one day, but what you have right here, right now.

The more you can keep attention on that, the greater the creations within your life will be.

Make the most of every moment.”  – Doe Zantamata
