Are you ready to join me for a creative adventure?


“Having never experienced a retreat before I was nervous on what to expect but in reality I had no reason to be.  Katrina was a patient wonderful teacher who helped instill confidence in myself in both my art (inner critic squashed) and my self confidence to step outside the box and try new things, both in art and life.  I traveled a long way from New Zealand and feel so privileged to have been able to meet Katrina, who is a wonderful kindhearted soul, to watch her make beautiful art and learn her wonderful techniques.  She is truly an inspiration who I know loved to help us all on our creative journeys.  If I ever have the chance to join her again I would and for any other lucky students who can join Katrina in future retreats, you will not regret it, it is truly an experience of a lifetime that I will never forget. “ Louise B.
