Hello Gorgeous Genius!

I’m glad you popped over! My latest blog post is here. Here’s what else is happening…

womeh-writing-italy-group-badgeRight now, I’m in Italy, eating pasta, (there’s an excellent chance I’m eating pasta at any time you may be reading this) exploring Rome and Florence, and teaching…

a weeklong Women’s Writing Retreat at a classic Italian countryside villa.

More Italy! And Pasta!

I’ll be back in Italy next Spring – I know, I’ve got a tough job!

If you want to tag along… please do!

At the Creative Passport to Italy workshop we’ll be staying in the ancient hill town of Orvieto, where we’ll eat (and learn to cook) Italian food, shop at a traditional market, go wine tasting, and lots of other fun stuff — and document our adventures in a unique travel journal. Anyone craving pasta yet?!

Back home, in Oaxaca, Mexico, you can celebrate Day of the Dead with me, and learn to document your travels with photos, art, writing and collage, in the Creative Passport to Mexico, workshop, October 28-November 3, 2016. No experience in art is necessary to attend.

We’ll be at Art House Oaxaca, my retreat and artist residency space. If you want to stay longer, or book a stay for another time, be my guest with your own room, bath, and work space.

Creative Life in Mexico

Art House Oaxaca is an artist residency for workshops and private retreats I’ve created here in Oaxaca, Mexico. (Oaxaca is pronounced Wa-ha-ka, and is both a city and a state, like New York, NY).

Simply, it’s the place I wish existed everywhere I travel: a light-filled guest room with my own bathroom, a place to work on my writing and art, 3-prong outlets, window screens, a bigger studio space in case I really want to throw paint around or write outside, a hammock, a wonderful onsite cafe where I can get coffee, tea or a coconut or almond milk cappucino, fresh green juice, and the list goes on…

Art House Oaxaca is a place for artists and art lovers to stay for a week or longer. If you teach workshops, it’s perfect for your group. We have 5 rooms, double occupancy, to host a total of 10 people at once. The workshop space accommodates a larger group, so people can stay offsite, too, and still attend your workshop.

One of the things I love best about Oaxaca (and it’s a very long list!) is the colonial architecture feature the buildings have of being hidden behind tall adobe walls. When you enter through the arched doorways, it’s always a surprise to see gardens, and interior patios behind the entry patios.

It’s a city of secret gardens and hidden treasures waiting to be discovered. Magical.
