I am an artist/author and I create and publish wellbeing resources for kids and adults using my love of art and positive psychology.

I love facilitating private groups for "Paint & Sip" classes for adults, or "Paint & Singalong" parties for children at my Bayview Boathouse Art Studio or as a pop up at venues to suit. It brings me the greatest of joy to see most people as beginners leaving proud and enlightened to how joyful, therapeutic and satisfying painting can be! My classes can be catered for any special occasion, Team building activities, Xmas Parties, Corporate events, friendship groups, family get togethers, Aged care, fundraisers, hens nights, all age birthdays, parent/child friendship groups, mothers groups, teacher wellbeing activities or date nights. Otherwise you can join one of my regular classes with friends or come solo.
If you are a school, therapist or shopping centre looking for unique kids workshop ideas, after school term classes, or kids birthday parties, I do workshops using Arts & Crafts as a tool to teach children important values such as Gratitude, Kindness & mindset which helps children to live a happier life! Plus fun Paint & Singalong parties for any small to large groups!

My Passion is to share all that I have learnt on my own healing journey helping everyone to feel the benefits of creativity, a positive mindset and the joy that painting/creativity brings to all ages.

The rest of the time you'll find me painting large canvases for Art Galleries of all things beautiful; boats, holiday scenery & any special moments captured on film. Commissioned art of loved ones, special memories and places are also welcome. If i had time I would paint everything beautiful that I see! :-)

Kylie has a workers with children certificate:

Mindful Educator Essentials Certificate at the Mindful Schools USA.

15 years of Painting Art + Publishing Mindset Resources for Kids/adults/therapists.

Paint and Sip Class



Unfortunately, I was unable to make the paint class, but Kylie was a fabulous communicator and very patient with the rebooking and making suggestions of times we could go. I still didn’t get to make it in the end, but my friends did, and they had a fabulous time. Thanks for looking after them Kylie! xxx

My daughter had a blast with Kylie at her art class and made some new friends. Beautiful venue and Kylie was so kind, patient and very inviting. My daughter was nervous before we arrived but quickly felt comfortable and out came her full personality. Thank you Kylie for a wonderful experience.

Paint and Singalong Class for Kids Parties



A truly magnificent experience! We had my daughters 9th birthday here, everything was beyond expectation, the location is stunning and quality of the experience was fantastic. Kylie is a wonderful teacher, she took time with each child (ranging rom 6-9yrs olds) and gave them the confidence and encouragement to produce beautiful artwork they were all so proud of. Each child walked away smiling, happy and with a sense of achievement. I'd recommend Kylie's class to anyone looking for a fun, inclusive, meaningful and memorable day.

Absolutely wonderful experience. The best Mother's Day gift I have given and shared in a long time. Kylie is an inspired teacher. The venue is gorgeous. An enriching artistic experience .


Joann Brennan May 2022

Paint and Sip Class



We had the beautiful Kylie Johnson as our instructor. She was very helpful with assisting my staff in a team building activity. We laughed, sang along with her great playlist and just had the best time. Kylie came to Hyatt Regency in Darling harbour, with all her equipment as it was easier to have the amount of people stay in the one place rather than try and move them all. This made the activity run so smoothly. I have never painted, as most of the staff and we were all very surprised in what we all achieved.

Had an awesome birthday celebration with some of my dearest friend while we “sipped and painted” with Kylie. I have done several different experiences and this one is by far the best.

Thank Kylie for a great evening! I had a wonderful time doing Paint'n'Sip at Bayview. The location is absolutely magical and parking was easy nearby. We were able to bring our own snacks which was great too. I am not a painter by any means, but Kylie guided us through the process and by the end I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I would definitely do it again, and I'll be sure to recommend it  + more

Creative Mindfulness Course: Connect Create Thrive



Loved this course, it was totally worth the money & there's so many great ideas & projects to do with a new module sent every week for the duration of the course, really looked forward to seeing what there was to do next. It is more for families with younger kids but anyone could do it. Best part is being able to do it all in your own time. Would highly recommend especially if you have littlies.

We did this paint and sip class as our work Xmas party. It was such a beautiful venue overlooking Pittwater to Scotland Island. Kylie the artist was very friendly and helpful. She had a great music playlist, which made a fun atmosphere. Our whole team enjoyed the night, and would highly recommend this class to anyone. It was also very reasonably priced and get yo take home a piece of you own artwork.  + more

My son and daughter have now been to two of Kylie's paint classes and have already asked when the next one is. They absolutely loved it. Kylie has such a fun way of bringing the joy to painting and they were so proud to bring their artwork home to hang on their walls.


Victoria Nov 2021

Paint and Sip Class



What a wonderful experience we had last night for a girls night out at Kylie’s boat shed paint and sip class. The studio with water views is the perfect backdrop for the creative spirit to flow helped by a drop or too of vino! Kylie is warm, inviting, creative and inspirational. I even surprised myself with painting something that resembled hydrangeas with a little bit of help! Thank you Kylie for a fun night Highly recommend Kind regards Victoria

we all had such a great time, Kylie came and set it all up in the gym tranforming it and adding in wow factor when our clients turned up, the painting she choose was great everyone to follow along to and finish up with painting that they are happy to put up in their homes. I would def recommend Kylie coming to your workplace and taking everyone through a paint and sip class!

It was an absolute delight to spend the afternoon with Kylie – the scenery was to absolutely beautiful, her careful instruction and encouragement to help to create our “masterpieces” was provided with just the right balance of humor and nurture, and it was all topped off with really good company. All in all, we had such a wonderful time, spending Mother’s Day doing something different (al- be-it discovering I may not be an artist, but doing it in a fun way) – it was just the right balance of art, bubbles, laughs and the feeling of accomplishment  + more
