What Our Students are Saying...

"Thank you to Faith, Mati and all the group members for such an inspirational year! It's been such a brilliant course and I'm very happy & grateful for the work that I've created alongside you all. I too have sold paintings - six of them which is fab'!" ~Louise Elizabeth
"I'm beyond grateful for the generosity of what you have shared with us here.  I pulled all the work out of my studio and around the house and counted it up, and I made 66 paintings this year (in our year long e-course).  I sold 7 of them and did two commissions.  This WOULD NOT have happened without feeling so held within my process of growth within this group.  My deepest thanks Faith and Mati and to all my fellow painters." ~Susan Nethercote
"This class really has been life changing for me. It truly has been a year of self discovery and I'm so grateful. It really came at the perfect time and helped me realize that I really do love to paint and I love painting abstractly which I had never done before. Being a year long course really helped me to stay inspired and motivated and I loved seeing what the other students were creating. It was great having different lessons each month and seeing your videos - those always gave me a boost too. Thank you both so much!" ~Janelle Gurchinoff

A bit more about our teachers...

Faith is a painter, wife, mother, world traveler and New York City transplant. With 20+ years of personal painting experience she enjoys inspiring others to manifest their most heartfelt ideas through creating art. Her art has been exhibited widely, included in multiple publications and she offers creative international art retreats. She lives with her husband and 3 young children by the sea in Charleston, South Carolina, where they enjoy exploring southern beaches and maintaining a close connection with nature through frequent trips to wild places. Faith is currently working on her first book on painting. Follow along on her blog and on Instagram where she posts daily beauty and inspiration.



Mati is an artist and daring adventurer whose name is pronounced Matey, like Ahoy! She is an Oakland, California based artist, illustrator, painting teacher and author of Daring Adventures in Paint.  After wanting to be an artist for many years, but feeling like it was “impractical”, at 29 years Mati took the leap and went back to art school at the California College of the Arts. Almost 10 years later, she is still excited and terrified every time she sees a blank canvas. She has had dozens of art shows, taught painting classes internationally and had her art used by clients Patagonia, University Games, Pier 1, as well as greeting cards, and her very own home decor line. She also has illustrated several children’s books including “i carry your heart” written by ee cummings. Through her workshopsbook, and popular online course, she spreads a warm message of creative courage: it’s never too late to show the world your magic.
