Paint Your Wild Spirit…. It's so much more than an online course, it’s a journey into the soul of your creative practice.
Give me 4 weeks, wild one, and I'll take you from being scared of making the first (or next) mark on the canvas to free flowing painting and mark making that will inspire you for a lifetime!
Do you feel like there's more freedom and creativity available to you and you're not quite finding it? (I totally get that, no shame btw)
Are you struggling with self doubt, wondering why painting feels so hard sometimes, even when it’s something you love or would love to do?
Do you believe only “special” people are painters, or that you have to be uniquely talented and gifted to enjoy and express yourself with paint?
Does it feel it kinda scary to approach the blank canvas, to make the first mark...are you afraid you'll get it wrong?
Are you worried that even though you may already know all the techniques and all the things, something's still missing and you're afraid you're just not getting it?
Do you believe that if you can't make a good or great painting to start with there's no use in even trying?
If you're saying YES to any of these questions you're in the right place!
And guess what? I've felt and believed all of these things too, and I've totally transformed my creative experience so I know you can too!
(hint...there’s no getting it wrong when you’re expressing your own creative voice!)
Are YOU ready to break FREE
from inner and outer limitations, to exuberantly squeeze luscious paint out of the tube and onto the blank canvas
(yes, even if you’re super scared!) so that
you can paint what your heart and soul truly desire?I'm READY! SIGN ME UP!
Wonder if you have something more to express and you're not getting there on your own? (again, there's no shame!)
Have a desire and a creative curiosity about painting that isn't being fulfilled?
Want to dust off those paint tubes and explore the wonders of paint as a way to access and express your own authentic creative voice?
If you're saying YES YES YES then
"Paint Your Wild Spirit" is for YOU!
“Paint Your Wild Spirit”
is a unique online course experience created just for you!
We all have stories to tell, with words, with imagery, with paint, with feelings…..how do we get out of the way so that we can bring these stories to life on the canvas?
Yes, we don’t only have to use words to tell stories, we can paint our stories metaphorically with colour, texture, shape, layers, mark-making and imagery.
You can be a modern day cave painter, exploring and expressing your inner and outer worlds with paint and mixed media onto any type of surface so that you can consistently find freedom and JOY in your creative expression.
(and give yourself a freaking break)
Think you don’t have a story to tell or paint? 100% not true
Think your story is uninteresting or not worth telling/painting? 100% not true.
Do you think you're too old? It's too late? This won't work for you? NOT TRUE! Not true, not true!
Your soul and spirit have a story, underneath the layers of conditioning and judgement there’s a story waiting to unfold....
In "Paint your Wild Spirit”
you'll paint paint paint, and then paint some more!
My process is all designed to get you engaged with paint so that you can feel the pure pleasure of creative play and get over the preciousness of it all so that you'll feel free to experiment, play and get a little (or a lot) wild!
You'll learn how to easily begin to paint, stay in the messy middle and find your way to a satisfying finish.
In this course you'll have so much hands on experience with paint that you'll start a painting as easily as you make yourself breakfast.
(starting is sometimes the hardest part, right?)
You'll get full access to "behind the scenes" in my studio and you'll learn my unique blend of uber-effective painting practices, mindset tools, and simple but powerful art techniques that will help you discover new avenues of creative inspiration that are just waiting to be let loose!
YES, I WANT IN!
You’ll let go of old beliefs and conditioning that throw a wet blanket on your creativity so that you can learn to trust your own intuitive painting impulses.
You’ll build and maintain a powerful, unstoppable creative fire inside yourself so that
You'll finally feel free to paint whatever sets your
soul on fire.
Paint Your Wild Spirit course really freed me up to be more playful in my art making!
Tammy taught me how to tap into my own creativity by experimenting and playing in my art with childlike abandon. I now begin all of my paintings in a bold and fun way and creating is that much more enjoyable to me. Taking more risks and trying new things is easier for me because it is all about doing what you love. My artwork is becoming something I love making as well as loving the end result. I highly recommend Tammy’s courses!

"We left behind the old world of creating with the mind’s critique of what was acceptable ...
and ventured into a place where it was okay to do whatever our spirit wanted!
Each video was an experience that seemed to speak to the “innocent artist” in all of us. But what it also did was give my "mature artist" a chance to breathe in new life."
Tyrrell Clarke BFA
"Tammy's teaching style is a great balance of structure and flexibility.
She really supports and empowers students to jump in, experiment, have fun and believe in their own creativity.
I loved the module videos, zoom meetups, personal feedback."
"Tammy is filled with enthusiasm and encouragement
and gifts to her students many avenues to bring out their talents with her abundance of examples, videos and live calls!"

It's a way of life...
Wondering if "Paint Your Wild Spirit" is the right painting course for you?
This course is different from other painting courses....
It's a journey into the soul of your creative practice.
Are you ready to play with fun tools, spirit enlivening art techniques and creative practices that are not just more of the same old boring AF art exercises
so that you can free your own authentic expression and be wild, bold and alive when you paint?YES PLEASE! I WANT THIS!
"Paint Your Wild Spirit"
is for YOU if:
You feel bored AF, uninspired, restricted or frustrated with what you paint. (been there, done that)
You want to set your paintings on fire with inspiration and aliveness!
You want to finally get in touch with your authentic creative voice so that you can feel excited and alive with what you paint!
You’re done with the usual, boring, conventional art techniques (ya know, stuff like how to draw the perfect human figure or paint the perfect still life) and you’re ready to paint whatever you want to paint without worrying about what other people will think.
You’re ready to break FREE from inner and outer limitations, finally squeeze the paint out of the tube onto the canvas (yes, even if you’re scared!) so that you can create what your heart and soul truly desires!
You sense that there's more freedom and creativity available to you and you're not quite finding it on your own. (there's no shame in this btw)
You want to be guided by a thriving, experienced artist with over 20 + years of experience making and selling art as a full time career so that you can relax into the process and paint freely.
"Paint Your Wild Spirit"
is NOT for you if:
- You want to only make pretty paintings and only care about perfectly curated art.
- You think that painting is about creating the perfect piece vs experimenting and growing in the process.
- You don’t care about being authentic in your painting and your expression.
- You like predictable art, conventional art that feels ho hum and has no spark.
- You’re not committed to growth and you’re 100% certain that nothing can help you be more creative.
I’ve struggled with being creatively blocked for so long....
"I was totally free to just go for it and leave all the silly judgments behind. It seems like a miracle or a magic trick that somehow I was able to become free. I found myself drawn to my art materials with curiosity and a sense of adventure and possibility."
"Tammy is a warm, wise, fun and empowering guide.
Her art, her lessons, and her presence are all inspiring."
Tammy's enthusiasm and playfulness inspired me to expand – from art journal to canvas!
She generously shared an abundance of precious insights and techniques. At the same time she encouraged us to paint and collage freely in our own way. The live Zoom Calls were so much fun. Thanks for a wonderful course!
I used to believe I wasn't creative...
In my book "Tender Brave Spirit" I share about my story from zero creativity to my life as a full time artist, making creativity the centrepiece of my life.
I'll give you the short version here:
I spent most of the first 40 years of my life believing the lie that
- only special people are creative .
- you have to born with talent or else there's no chance.
My self-taught art became my full time career when I was in my 40's, selling in galleries across the continent. I was a late bloomer.
So, I know this creativity stuff inside and out, I know the struggles that come with this path and that’s why I’m the PERFECT guide for you, especially if you’re feeling stifled in your paintings and creative practice.
In fact I think I'm uniquely qualified for guiding others in the process of art making because I know so intimately the pain of not feeling creative or artistic, and being held back by fear or worry about other people's ideas about what I "should" be creating. I know there's another way.
Give me 4 weeks, wild one, and I'll take you from being scared of making the first (or next) mark on the canvas to free flowing painting and mark making.
You'll draw upon the rich world of your own personal visuals so that you can feel on fire with your paintings, your art and your life!
That sounds pretty amazing, right!?
Sweetness and Testimonials!
"Your positive energy and creativity is catching and inspiring!"
I dusted off my old paint brushes and paints
and have set up a space for me to create in our house.
I look forward to your next workshop!
Shirley Townley Smith
"Tammy gives you the tools to release the creative artist buried inside.
She reminds us that we ALL have an artist within! She gives permission to let your inner child play, create and express! Getting to see Tammy paint was absolutely mesmerizing! Watching her start with a blank page and end up with a colourful, free, living piece of art was nothing short of amazing!
It was like watching a master magician cast a beautiful spell."
"Tammy will help you discover your own authentic voice.
She will inspire and guide you as you learn to let go of the inner critic and embrace the freedom to just begin."
In this deep dive into painting course I'll encourage YOU to paint wtf YOU want, without fear or worry about judgment, from inner or outer critics, like I do with Blue Buffalo... (watch the video below!)
How much experience do I need?
I don't have an art studio, how much space do I need?
How much time do I need?
How is the course delivered?
How long do I have access?
How long is the course?
Can I get a refund?
Can you hear your wild spirit calling you?
How long are you willing to feel stifled knowing that you have this creative fire inside of you and you’re not allowing yourself to express it?
The longer you wait, the stronger the pull will feel, so why not now?
Consider this the sign you need to say YES! To yourself!LET ME IN NOW!!
"Your enthusiasm is so contagious"
and you created such a non-judgemental environment that I felt very comfortable.
The realization that making a mark was a starting point for a whole flow of ideas,
and there didn't have to be any preconceived concept of how things would turn out or what they would say gave me so much freedom. And that trying to create perfection was a hindrance, not a help!"
You will find your own freedom of expression,
fun that overcomes self doubt and the ability to lose yourself in artistic play without judgement, all under the guidance of a talented and accomplished artist who shares so honestly her own journey to that place of accepting and advancing her creativity.
Think you aren’t creative? Tammy’s course will prove you wrong.
With "Paint Your Wild Spirit" you’ll finally have the skills, practices and courage to be able to paint whatever you want without worrying about what other people think!
Ahhhh...sweet relief right?
Imagine, you'll finally and fully trust yourself and your own creative impulses so that you can thrive even more and REALLY REALLY ENJOY painting!
(even when it feels challenging it's still soul satisfying)HELL YAH! I Want This!
Why learn from me?
I’m a successful self taught artist with over 20 years of experience creating and selling art. I know this stuff because I live this stuff - aka,, the highs and the lows, the joy and the pain of art making!
I’m wildly creative and I believe creative blocks are a myth we can leave behind so that we can feel free to make whatever we want.
I know the exuberant joy of painting with a free and wild abandon and my #1 goal is to encourage others to give themselves permission to paint and feel this too!
I have a compassionate approach to the tender vulnerable parts of ourselves that can be revealed when we paint and make art.
I know first hand the pain of feeling stuck and frustrated with my painting practice, and I’ve created my own uber- effective method for finding my way through so that I can really love all the pieces of my painting experience.
I know how to transform the negative energy of the inner critic voices so that I feel free to create whatever the f^&* I want.
I LOVE creating, and I love to inspire people to make creativity a BIG part of their lives without feeling held back by self-doubt.
More and more I truly live my life as art.
And so can YOU.
Paint Your Wild Spirit course was an adventure in freeing up my creativity! Wow! Tammy's support and guidance was outstanding. It surprised me that an online course could be so transformative. I learned new painting and mark-making techniques, which were really freeing and exciting to play with. However, the real gold was the encouragement and support from Tammy, as she shared her stories. This is not a course in "how to make a pretty painting". It is an in-depth, vulnerability-embracing, deep-dive into the heart of why we are drawn to make our mark in the world and how to look into the reasons we often stop ourselves or feel blocked. The course is packed with real exercises that helped me get back in touch with my inner pull towards what is true and how to express this. As a musician, these prompts have been very helpful in allowing me deeper access to my songwriting practice too! I am now able to move past the inner critic and move into a creative space with deep self compassion and a joy for the process.

"This course is a journey in self exploration but even more than that. It’s like taking a dive into a deep pool of creativity and discovering that we can swim without fear of sinking. It’s a playground where we can be who we want to be and it’s always ok. It has given me a new approach to self expression and I am refreshed and renewed as a result".
"I could listen to your voice as a soothing meditation of acceptance and encouragement always. My heart and spirit have been expanded by this time with you. My gratitude for your class offering. It has been the balm and medicine that my soul has needed to reconnect my body/feelings to my art."

Many thanks - Nia:wen"
