Painting as a Spiritual Practice E-COURSE


expressing Your soul Through art

Painting as a Spiritual Practice is about so much more than painting. It is a transformative journey that has been experienced by thousands of people, seasoned and new painters alike.

Like meditation and prayer, creating is a spiritual practice. This course is a practice that uses paint and play to intentionally connect us with the creative spirit within us all. It is a sacred doorway and an expression of our personal relationship with creation.

In Painting as a Spiritual Practice, the sacred is uniquely expressed through colour, metaphor and imagination. As we create sacred art in a safe space, we also receive opportunities to notice our fears, our blocks, and our vision in real time. We are called to surrender, open, and see ourselves through new eyes, again and again.

I invite you to practice with me. We can dive deep within and express spirit through our own hearts and brushes. Together, we can bring forth creations from the most remote corners of the human heart.

Angela sets guidelines that ensure will discover an ability to create, playfully and with joy (and sometimes tears), you will encounter yourself in every brush stroke, you will begin trusting that inner whisper that says “red is the colour you need” and most of all she teaches you how to fall in love with your image that is unfolding on your canvas. In essence I learned to love aspects of myself I had never known before. Success!

quote (1).png

Painting remains a beloved part of my creative practice. I put paint on canvas to play and explore, to release emotions and expectations, to invite insight and clarity, and to uncomfortably stretch those visionary muscles that support all of my creative work.

When I feel stuck, I return to the canvas and trust that I won’t feel the same afterwards. It’s always transformative.

The funny thing is I think I always had that painter inside of me, it’s just... I never expected her to truly come out! Angela’s course helped me paint my first of MANY and I am so thankful. I realized how to listen to my own hands and heart and trust myself.

Painting as Spiritual Practice is as simple as I’ve learned to let it become. The beauty is in the giggle moments, when Spirit tricks you into painting something profoundly insightful. Angela is a brilliant guide in the process; offering a wise loving spaciousness, inviting you to paint exactly what you need to see.

Finding connection to something more within myself, this journey helped release painful bits of my story in colour and transformed them: covering, uncovering and rediscovering. For myself, it was an opportunity to explore deeper healing which 'talk therapy' was unable to tap into. The arts, as a mode of healing, need to be in everyone’s tool-kit.
