TELL ME IF THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR…
You’re so afraid of making mistakes, you never Start. The fear of doing something wrong overtakes your desire to create.
You look outside of yourself for answers, for a step-by-step recipe for your paintings, emulating others, and looking for validation of your art through critique and praise. You may believe you’ll become a great artist once you learn all the techniques or buy all the tools and supplies.
You’re no longer living at that edge, of stepping into the unknown, no longer creating astonishing art anymore.
Most of all… you are soooo ready to express yourself in your art EVERY TIME!!!
What if you KNEW EXACTLY how to start creating, to move through the messy middle and to decide when to finish your painting EVERYTIME?
What if you KNEW EXACTLY how to take risks, play, explore, and experiment in your art?
What if you KNEW EXACTLY how to keep going when you get frustrated and tolerate ugly art to create a painting that wow you?
BASICALLY…YOU TRUST YOURSELF AND YOUR LIMITLESS AND INFINITE ABILITIES …
Are you yearning to open up your creative channels, move past resistance and feel freed up and liberated in your art, trusting your own voice and vision?
Here’s What You’ll Learn in this Workshop:
I’ll reveal the Big Idea you can implement and start seeing results from your art in 48 hours.
We’ll identify the three massive mistakes that are frustrating you, causing you pain and leaving you feeling stymied, stalled and repetitive in your art. AND how to overcome them!
You’ll learn about a mind shifting method that will transform not only your art, but also your experience of creating it.
I’ll show you the foundational concepts and practices from the intersections of art, science, psychology, evolutionary biology, mathematics, theoretical physics and creativity research to create your most surprising, astonishing experimental work as an artist.
IS SIMPLER THAN YOU THINK!
Hey there, I'm Nancy
An Abstract Artist, Bestselling Author and Stanford Trained Existential Psychiatrist
I’ve been an artist and existential psychiatrist for over 20 years and I'm passionate about creativity, aliveness, and meaning.
I've been an abstract painter for decades. Several years ago I created a television program "Creativity & Consciousness" where I interviewed artists on their creative process. I learned that artists in every genre grapple with fear and self-doubt and that the interior landscape affects everything!
I believe that abstract painting is a powerful way of getting at meaning and that art is a mirror that reflects our lives…the canvas reflects back our feelings, moods, interior states, and life.
I've guided thousands of artists in creating their deepest, most alive and meaningful work, and I would love to be your guide, too!
Elisabeth went from being anxious about starting a painting on a blank canvas to selling a painting on the first day of an exhibition with over 100 artists.
At the end of last year, I was accepted into a jury-judged exhibition with over 100 artists, which was an incredible encouragement. The first day of the vernissage I sold a painting “Zornpalette” which came during my trip in the Studio Journey.
If I go back a few years, I got anxious when I would start painting on a white canvas.
I have also been a “perfectionist” which has not facilitated my creation. Since I found Nancy among all the thousands of other art teachers, my life has changed, not only on the artistic level but on so many levels.
The feeling when I first loved what I painted was incredibly strong and because it was genuine and rooted within myself. Sure, there is still often a struggle during each painting, but then I hear Nancy’s voice that it is precisely in the “ugly paintings” something new is emerging. HOW EXCITING IS THIS?

I see thousands of abstract painters like you struggle with expressing themselves in their paintings…
They’re afraid and blocked. Every time they start to paint, they question how it will turn out.
“What if no one likes it? What if I don’t like it?”
They question their talent, and painting becomes arduous and painful. They feel lost, wanting to express themselves but not knowing how. But when they learn the 3 key studio practices that I’m going to teach you in this workshop, it all changes. Finally, they’re able to paint with joy and create art they love. I know this because I learned the same lesson myself, and I’ll share it all with you on the workshop.
Jo went from painting as a hobby and not being sure about her style to becoming a full time artist with a unique style
Under your guidance, tutoring and workshops I have developed my style as an artist and as a result of this I have now taken the plunge to be a full time artist. You have given me the confidence to be disciplined, and believe in myself .
It is so exciting to be in my studio each day, putting into practice the knowledge I have gained through your tutoring , and the feeling of joy I experience when I see paintings completed that I am proud of.
Thank you Nancy wholeheartedly , it is awesome to be sharing another journey with you.
