Did you know that making art can significantly reduce stress levels, regardless of artistic talent or experience?

Studies show that art makes you healthier even if you're not good at it! Cortisol level, a biological indicator linked to stress, has been shown to be significantly lowered following art-making.

I realised that when I'm feeling overwhelmed with life's demands, important things to get done, deadlines, etc, well, that's exactly when I need to stop and create some balance. Making art immediately puts me in the zone. I feel energised and relaxed, with a new perspective on everything. I'm more productive, more creative, happier.

Life can be stressful. Art is about wellbeing. That's why I want to help more people heal, find emotional balance and wellbeing through art-making. So, I'm introducing Art For Stress Release a new six week course. I invite you to come along and create space for yourself to experience the joy and fun!

Join me for this six week course. Starting with mindfulness practices to get relaxed and centred. As we move into art-making you'll experience and enjoy your individual creative expression. We get out of our heads and into our hearts, letting go and getting a bit messy. We explore exciting new art activities each week. During daylight savings we'll be doing some beautiful outdoor activities in the late afternoon to evening.

I am an experienced artist, teacher and art therapist in my Randwick studio. I love to share this transformational power of art with others. I know I’m making a difference when students experience less stress and anxiety, they have fun and leave feeling calm, relaxed and soothed. This course is designed to suit people looking to balance their working lives through creative expression.

"What a wonderful experience it was to learn about paint pouring. Leah is such a talented teacher who knows how to explain things easily. Having calming music in the background and learning all the techniques was grounding, therapeutic and quite a stress reliever. I ended up with a beautiful painting.
Thank you Leah! I will return to do more painting soon.
Highly recommended to all!"
- Shelly

“I came in being stressed and I feel now more calm and relaxed. It was a very soothing, calm and fun session. The very beautiful meditation we did helped me to connect with my higher self and I enjoyed creating intuitively. I feel so motivated now to continue doing this art as a form of creativity and releasing stress. Grateful for this experience Leah! Thank you."
- Monica

"It was very relaxing. After about 5 minutes, I felt less anxious. I was able to obsess less about things that I had not done or need[ed] to get done. Doing art allowed me to put things into perspective."
- Cindy

“Leah was very warm, knowledgeable and very in tune with what I was looking for from the session. I had so much fun creating a lovely Dutch pouring Acrylic piece, learning something new and getting my artistic zen on!”

For me Art is a powerful, multi-dimensional language. Art is communication. I am passionate about what I do as an artist and I am motivated to inspire and make access to this language of the visual available to others. I do this by connecting with my students, tuning into their inner artist and guiding them to explore new ways to express themselves creatively. I empower and inspire my students though my passion, communication and facilitation style.
I am a multi-talented visual artist with many years of experience, and many varied skills and talents to offer. I have strong visualisation and conceptual skills along with the practical and technical ability to fulfil on creative vision. I have years of experience of planning and facilitating successful art workshops and classes.
I am a creative artist who produces groundbreaking works using painting and digital media. With a talent for capturing ideas visually, for me art communicates ideas. As a result of my personal experience of the power of art, I have a strong commitment to opening others to what’s available through exploring self-expression, creativity and fun.
I attained a Master of Visual Arts. I am a qualified Workplace Trainer and Assessor and have taught art at universities, TAFE and schools. I also run art workshops for people with intellectual disabilities.
