I experienced how powerful it can be to slow down and carve out some time to be with myself, especially as a mom of two. I am constantly moving from task to task and planning for the future.
My watercolor practice offers a supportive space to gain perspective around my experiences, and reminds me to find beauty in this life. This is what I aim to instill in all my teachings and it is what fuels my work.
"Jaime has been a true pleasure to work with at Wildflower Farms. Her watercolor class transported me into a calm, creative space to learn and her holiday activities engage our guests consistently every time she joins us."

an immersive experience
I don't know your capacities, your aspirations, your longings, your secret talents. But surely something wonderful is sheltered inside you.
Jaime has over a decade experience holding space for women to cultivate a deeper connection to themselves, their artwork and community. She takes great care in curating a spacious experience rich in the potential to pause and soak up the beauty life has to offer. Creative Retreats are perfect for beginners or the experienced artist looking to develop their watercolor skills and finally prioritize themselves.
Sometimes we don't even notice that we've been moving so fast through our day, we keep ourselves stuck in this pattern of pumping adrenaline and anxiety. If we don't take a minute to find our breath and bring some awareness around our actions we can float mindlessly through our day, week or even year. Our time to paint offers this sacred pause.
If you're an aspiring artist looking for a transformative journey of self-discovery, you've come to the right place.
Community principles & values
The importance of a safe and inclusive community within in the artistic process is something I value deeply. I strive to cultivate a kind and supportive community where people of all artistic levels can connect, learn, and grow together. My painting classes in the Hudson Valley, New York City and online, fosters a kind and supportive space that encourages collaboration, exploration, and the celebration of each individual's unique perspective and diverse lived experiences.
From beginners seeking to unlock their artistic abilities to experienced artists looking to further refine their techniques, my classes and creative retreats create an atmosphere that prioritizes exploration and empowers individuals to discover their deepest creative potential.
