A massive, huge, ginormous THANK YOU from the bottom of my Heart for Art for helping us keep our business going during the challenging covid days. I’m so thankful for all your support.

It’s been a huge challenge to start a business and an even bigger one to keep it going through lockdowns and restrictions.

It’s thanks to you, our local community, and your continued support for our homegrown business, that we’re still here … and … that we reached the super exciting milestone of our 50th Studio Paint Party on Saturday!! 🥳🎨 We celebrated the occasion with loads of laughter, a new painting and a big, delish chocolate gateau!

My mission for the business has always been to share the joy and healing of art. I never expected to receive so much joy and healing in return, from you all, during that process.

It has been such a pleasure to serve you and help you find your creativity. Between you, you’ve painted 61 Tui, 87 Island Bays, 42 Pencarrow Lighthouses, 44 Wellington by Nights, 38 Oriental Bays and tonnes of others too.

It's so awesome knowing there’s a whole gallery of your paintings on your walls and I feel so blessed you’ve allowed me to be a part of that. You guys are just awesome!

Thank you so much for your ongoing support. I really couldn’t have done it without you. I can't wait to help you create many more masterpieces and share a tonne more art joy.

Here's to the next 50 Paint Parties! 🍾🥂
Bless you all 💖

It's Mental Health Awareness week which is a great time to stop and ask ourselves how we are.

Ask yourself "Is my wellbeing account edging towards overdraft?"
"Am I too busy to take time out for a bit of self care?"
"Do I need a quick pick me up?"

If you answered "Yes" to any of those and you need an easy way to give yourself a boost, Paint Parties are your answer!

Studies have proven that art makes you happier, even if you’re not good at it. Just the process of doing something creative is enough to improve your wellbeing.

I don't want you to miss out on the positive benefits of art, so I'm inviting you to join one of our Paint Parties! You'll relax, unwind and feel any stress melt away as you paint.

I''ll provide everything you need to create your own painting, including my step by step guidance that's easy to follow, so you don't need any experience.

You'll enjoy quality 'me time' that'll put a massive 'happy deposit' in your emotional wellbeing account, and have your own finished masterpiece to take home and enjoy.

Choose from any of our upcoming painting events
and join us to enjoy your fun 'art therapy' painting session.
