Flora's Workshop - One Year On

Wow, I can't believe it's been a year since I went to Flora Bowley's  Bloom True Painting Workshop at Nanga, Dwellingup, Western Australia. It was one of the best things I ever did for myself and my art and was so life changing for me. Flora is an awesome teacher, very positive and so inspiring.  Her technique is very intuitive and there's lots of layering, being bold and letting go to let your painting bloom. I also met some great ladies who's work has also blossomed and they are having exhibitions and furthering their art education. After going to this workshop I have had more courage to explore my art, teach, do painting demonstrations, enter exhibitions, go to more workshops including one overseas. It was such a great experience I would love to go to another one of her workshops - maybe one of those week long workshops in Mexico or Italy....sigh...

Read the original post about the weekend here.  Check out the pages above for more pics.

Here are a few pics of Flora and my paintings over the past year.

If you ever get the chance to go to one of Flora's workshops, do her online course or buy her book then I highly recommend that you go for it.


  1. I agree, and wow your work is so beautiful too! Flora is a God send! Thanks for sharing Shells! I won one of her books and can't wait to get it in the mail. Plus just finished her online eclass and it was so worth while! Best class I have ever taken! Sanna
