“I love my painting. It glows.”
I identify as an intuitive artist with a deep-seated, fierce belief in the human creative spirit. I believe it to be whole, resourced, resilient, delightful, loving, and capable. This belief fuels my hope and my work as an artist, dreamer, teacher, and coach.
I am interested in creating containers of experience that encourage and celebrate the creative expression original to each of us.
I am fascinated by the images that live within us, illustrating the stories we tell, the beliefs we hold, and the shapes and colors our lives take on as a result.
I am inspired by your hopes, desires, and dreams and by the privilege I have to place a pen, a marker, or a brush in your hand to see for yourself and show me.
I am wildly in love with the possible magic at our fingertips when we dare tap into our childlike spirit that seeks to understand, connect, and express itself from a place of imagination, positivity, awe, and wonder.
And so I became a certified Visual Coach, Intentional Creativity® Coach, and Dream Teacher, with a background in education and leadership topped with a pinch of glitter.
“Sophie holds your hand not to lead but to steady you as you find your balance, your true path, and supports with the gifts of her art, her healing visions, her energetic observations, and insights with integrity, humility and humor. She is an amalgam of esoteric wisdom and the newest methods of inquiry and personal development. And that twinge of a French accent that seeds itself into her words from time to time produces a unique voice that is delightfully spirited, decisive, kind, and completely trusting in you and your ability. Sophie is a unique facilitator and artist that set me on a wider path of self-discovery and self-love for which I am so very grateful.”

“The class was a fun, relaxing journey of self-discovery. It was like a guided meditation, interspersed with practical instruction in painting technique. It was a truly unique experience, unlike anything I have ever done. Sophie is a patient, encouraging teacher. I highly recommend this class experience to anyone, no matter their level of art expertise.”
“Knowing only a little bit about intuitive painting, I wanted to know more about the process; as I knew it was more about that than making a “perfect” painting. What I didn’t know was how much the process would take me deeper into my heart and emotions. When I look at the painting now, I feel a deeper connection to it. Painting this way also made me feel less judgmental about the piece and frankly, myself.”
“Sophie magically opened within me an inner freedom I was never able to tap into on my own.”
I had a great experience at Painted Love last night with Sophie! I really enjoyed the steps that were taken to get us to our final masterpieces! Painting is so fun, calming and simply relaxing! I will definitely be returning for another session!
“Thank you for expanding our ways of seeing things beyond the images we see 🍀☘️”
“The retreat with Sophie and our intimate group was really wonderful for me. Throughout the day I so enjoyed the process & also the finished painting I created by the end. Sophie is a wonderful & gifted teacher. I felt very pleased and happy when I left!”
“Initially I was scared about painting the blank canvas. Sophie led us through a wonderful process of discovery, layering, and play that resulted in creating very personal (and beautiful) expressions that were fun, inspiring, and satisfying.”
“Your warm, approachable style creates a welcoming space, and encourages me to get out of my head and tap into my feelings. [The class] helped me connect with and accept the growth I’ve achieved. It also gave me hope and courage to keep traveling the path to wholeness.”
“I did not know what to expect from the class as my expression is typically via writing. I was surprised as I started to paint that I could connect with inner feelings. I was able to express my struggles and reflect on the message my art gave me. I first judged my work in a negative light and then saw that what came out was a message of peace. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is struggling on their life’s path.”
“Sophie gently opens the door for us to explore what so many of us are longing for, and that is the time to reconnect with our true selves.”
