Hudson Valley watercolor artist, invitation designer and teacher.
Jaime graduated from design school with a bad case of the burnouts causing her to stop producing work for several years. It’s unfortunate, but the silver lining is that it made her turned to self-care. Over the next decade she dedicated her time to studying and eventually teaching yoga and meditation techniques with top guides from around the world. When she started to paint again, she took all these mindfulness methods with her and now allow them to influence my teachings. Her most favorite thing to see is a student start to create from their own source of abundant inspiration.
Learn how to use your body, mind & soul to make creative decisions and use intuitive painting to express how you interpret the world.
Different themes for every workshop.

About The Workshop:
Learn the technique rooted in the idea that creative expression can foster healing and mental well-being. Art, either creating it or viewing others' art, is used to help people explore emotions, develop self-awareness, cope with stress, boost self-esteem, and work on social skills.
Watercolor can be such a nourishing practice when you paint with ease - but that can feel impossible when your questioning every brushstroke and worried you're going to mess it up!
Each session we will cover a basic technique with a theme to help you turn your judgment brain off (or at least down) so you can start to trust yourself and paint with confidence. This workshop is great for those just starting your watercolor journey or have been painting for years. Jaime's main goal is to offer some time to relax, process, and explore your creativity in a safe community.
What We Will Do:
Introduce the watercolor technique or creative theme needed to complete the session's (wet into wet / color theory / working through the creative block)
Short centering meditation (based on technique/ theme)
Watercolor prompt - question
