Congratulations you have taken the first step!

I am pretty excited to have you join me on this new adventure! You can engage as little or a much as you want in all the steps! the main thing is you enjoy, and take time to create something that makes your heart sing!

The booklet attached here (which you can download onto your computer and print out if you like) will give you some nice reading and some reflective exercises and a print out with a grid to start your first mini painting!

Each of these projects will take you between 1 and 2 hours to complete, depending on what details you want to achieve. There are instructions on how to paint it in full photo realism, pencil and eventually abstractly too! (come back in a week or so and there will be a video of that too!)

There are some great questions and reflections throughout, This is the first special edition eBook which is being released at this time (of Covid 19) to help us all manage our worlds! Creativity is the best way to help us through I say! Hope you enjoy!

The video below documents Heather launching into painting again after nearly a 20-year break.

First a small watercolour, then a larger one, which sold not long after. It was from this point she decided to take up painting professionally. Thanks to Spike Mason for the video, and Lea Mason believing it was possible!







"A moment as the water pools and gathers on leafs end before the droplet falls. In the moment of falling is blessing One rain drop holds inside it life’s reflection Oh to see deeper with our eyes our home our heart and the blessings of the stranger"  Mardee Kaylock



'Blessings' is the first large painting Heather painted after a 17 year break.
She chose water as her subject after spending many months of walking in the bush near Poatina at the foot of the Great Western Tiers.  


"I could not deny there was someone far bigger in control, especially after seeing the intricate detail the Creator went to in creating the leaves I was walking past." Every drop always falls, every drop has life, every drop has a blessing. That water droplet always falls, always blesses. Don't give up, dream, think big, and move towards a joyful life, like the life water brings.
