Lotus Rising Registration Open!


Lotus Rising Art Workshop!
Sunday, April 23rd
4-7 p.m.
Chantilly, VA






Awaken with me this April with a repeat of one of my favorite art workshops—Lotus Rising!  Even if you have created a lotus with me before, come see what new blossom emerges.  We will create unique, beautiful lotus blossoms as we rise out of the mud and darkness and into the light, awakening our creative spirit!  We will begin the workshop with a short guided meditation to get our creativity flowing.  No art experience necessary.  Cost for the workshop is $45 and includes all instructions and supplies.  Feel free to bring a drink or snack to share.  To register, click the button below.  Hope to see you soon!


Free as a Feather Thank You!


I enjoyed teaching my "Free as a Feather" art workshop the other night!  Thanks to all the wonderful women who joined me!  Love your special feather messages--each so beautiful, personal and unique!  Here are a few photos from our evening and a little background on my fascination with feathers.  May your spirits be free and your dreams take flight! xxoo ~Jackie


When I was a child, I was told that feathers were dirty and carried disease and to NEVER pick them up!  As a child, I believed this and did what I was told.  However, as an adult, I no longer simply do as I'm told.  I am drawn to feathers--their beauty, their connection to freedom and flight.  So, I began picking them up!  I became fascinated with feathers--wondering which birds they came from, what messages they were carrying, what meaning and symbolism I could apply to my life and circumstances.  And thus, my collection began.  Two of my favorite feathers are my red-tailed hawk feather and my brilliant blue jay feather found just days before my workshop!  Hope you enjoy!
