I am an artist/author and I create and publish wellbeing resources using my love of art and positive psychology. My aim is to encourage a positive mindset through creativity and mindfulness. My online family wellbeing 'creativity' program, published card decks and mindfulness colouring books all come from my own healing journey during divorce and my mother passing.

I love facilitating private groups for paint & sip classes for adults, and paint & singalong classes for children at my Bayview Seaside Studio or as a pop up. It brings me the greatest of joy to see most people as beginners leaving proud and enlightened to how joyful, healing and satisfying painting can be! My classes can be catered for any special occasion, Team building, Xmas Parties, Corporate events, friendship groups, family, Aged care, fundraisers, hens nights, parent/child, mothers groups or date nights. Otherwise you can come to my regular class with friends or come solo.

My true 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 of all things beautiful; boats, nature & treasured moments. Commissioned art of loved ones, special memories and fury family members are also welcome. If i had time I would paint everything 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.

Victoria Nov 2021

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


Kelly Lewis Nov 2021

Such a relaxed and fun class. Thanks so much Kylie! We loved it and look forward to booking another class soon

Bron Calcraft Nov 2021

Loved this experience! Such a beautiful venue and Kylie is warm and professional, all in one. Highly recommend this to anyone who seeks a fun, enlightening and enriching experience - no prior painting experience required, but you’ll be very surprised by what you come up with - if you give yourself half a chance!

Oh what a great experience. Not only was Kylie really lovely and a great teacher, the whole venue and vibe are amazing. Honestly couldn’t have picked a nicer venue for a birthday. We sat in the studio and enjoyed the class and wine, with direct access to water views.
We really enjoyed it.

We had a fabulous evening with Kylie. Highly recommend ClassBento. Kylie is very experienced & taught us step by step how to create our own master pieces! All the art was supplied. The setting couldn’t be more beautiful on lovely Pittwater. The six of us had an amazing & fun night.

Cindy Reedy Oct 2021

Superb creative activity to partake in and very well run in a beautiful serene environment.

Jay Boon Oct 2021

Thanks Kylie for a really fun night, I was actually surprised at how easy it was to paint something that looks ok as I’m definitely not an artist. Lovely venue, would definitely recommend to others wanting a fun night out

Enjoyed a really lovely relaxing evening at the painting class. Actually created a painting that I want to hang which I wasn’t expecting! Kylie was a great host, great music, venue. Will definitely go again but hopefully on a summers evening so we can enjoy the view!

A wonderful night, thank you Kylie. I knew I’d enjoy spending time with friends but was really surprised with how much I enjoyed the painting. All the little details like music, candles and the beautiful relaxed setting made it such an effortless and refreshing night out!

Gemma Sim Jun 2021

Isabel Chan Jun 2021

You can’t go past this experience Sign up!

Upon arriving at the studio we were welcomed by the lovely Kylie, Zia, the gorgeous studio pup and blown away by the spectacular Bayview water view.

As we settled in with our bubbles, we started discussing with Kylie the construct of the painting and the next 3 hours just flowed. The music in the studio never stopped nor did the chatter, laughter and cuddles from Zia.

Kylie provided us a few options and we ended up combining a couple of her artwork into one. She was wonderful in listening to our suggestions and we improvised to personalise the artwork. We mixed and created new colours and she was ever so accommodating with our ideas as well as having absolutely all the tools there for us ready when we need them.

Kylie also has a super positive and energetic personality. My girlfriend and I felt that we had a well-being reawakening after spending the morning with Kylie and is already planning family activities next with Kylie.

Not to worry if you’re not particularly artistic, Kylie can cater for the needs of the different experiences! Just sign up and be prepared to enjoy!

Stuart Smithies Jun 2021

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!

Jessica Drennan Jun 2021

We had a wonderful class with the lovely Kylie in an amazing location. Kylie was super accommodating to our needs (we are a design team who were on an immersion day and wanted a fashion focused painting) and our team left feeling very inspired.
Cannot recommend this class enough, Thanks Kylie!

Helle Olsen May 2021

We had such a great night with Kylie, who guided us through the art of painting. Who would have thought that it could be that hard to put a brush to a canvas. Thank you Kylie for a well organized night of sip and paint.

Angela Liu May 2021

We had a beautiful Mother’s Day session spent painting in Kylie’s beautiful, vibrant and welcoming seaside studio. Kylie is a truly wonderful and gentle teacher with a passion for teaching and creating. All the mum’s and grandma’s went home being awed and inspired by their creations. I cannot recommend this class highly enough and cannot wait to go back!

Painting workshop review by Angela Liu

Thea Pym May 2021

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 in a really warm and intimate setting.

Tim Reid May 2021

Set against the most beautiful waterfront backdrop Kylie is extremely welcoming, patient and will help you bring your first masterpiece to life. Couldn't be happier with the class and our entire family loved it! If available be sure to book, you won't regret it.

Kristina Hoo May 2021

The experience we had as a group for Mother’s Day was simply amazing. Kylie is an excellent teacher - guiding us through the journey and helping us unleash our own unique and creative sides through this artistic experience. The studio was strategically located with such in a picturesque view that was absolutely breathtaking! Thanks Kylie!

Nora Xu May 2021

Kylies’s house is beautiful with amazing view. She is very patient and a very good teacher. I can’t believe I can paint! Will think to go back again with kids.

Leticia Demartini Apr 2021
