Let’s work together

I am an artist, a trained art therapist, a facilitator of workshops and retreats, and a blogger on the transformational power of self-nurturing. I have been doing art since high school, am a trained art therapist, and have been teaching Reiki, Yoga, Qigong, sound healing, colour healing, and other energy related works for over 30 years.

Inspiring and uplifting others through my artwork, workshops, retreats, and blogs, both in person as well as through social media, is my passion in life. By sharing my knowledge and skills with others I am drawn to learn more which I can then share with others.

Here is how I can help

Collaborate with me!

Art Teacher/Therapist & Facilitator of retreats and workshops.

I create a nurturing and peaceful setting for art therapy sessions, classes, meditation, yoga / qigong classes and sound sessions or workshops where the participants are encouraged to experience their inner self in a positive way.

Sound baths & meditation at the start of sessions provide the grounding and nurturing, to allow participants to let go and be creative. My guidance is gentle and supportive so that everyone can move into their highest and best self throughout retreats or workshops.

Red Roses - Original artwork of a vase filled with red roses and some green leaves. The roses have long stems and are in full bloom, showing their bright red petals. The vase reflects the light from a nearby window. The painting conveys a sense of romance and elegance. The painting is hanging on a pale wall above a wooden desk and decorating items.

“I can’t even begin to tell you how much I have loved coming to class each week, it’s been the absolute highlight of every weekend, and has given me the courage to embrace something new that I enjoy, and not worry about what other people may think of my creations.

Your gentle guidance and ability to instill a sense of self-belief in us as adults, is simply beautiful – and I am so genuinely grateful to you for your support, your non-judgmental guidance and your ability to share your own amazing talent with us so easily. “

– Carol



“I want to thank you Maia for such an enjoyable & rewarding experience. My initial feelings of apprehension soon disappeared in the nurturing and peaceful setting you created for our art classes.

I loved the sound healing & meditation at the start of our session which really provided the grounding needed, to just let go and be creative. Thanks for your support and gentle guidance, my confidence & self-belief grew with each session & I can’t wait to see where this takes me.”
