The "Art of Beautiful Chaos" retreats and workshops, cater to first-time painters looking for an empowering jump start on their creative path, to professional painters seeking a new perspective, and all levels in-between.

These heart-centred and educational retreats offer a vast toolbox of new techniques and a fresh creative perspective guaranteed to energise your life on and off the canvas.I demonstrate and break down many of my unique personal painting techniques which are informed by the rhythms of nature, and explore colour layering, composition, value contrast, expressive mark-making, dripping, fluid techniques and various materials.

Along the way, I offer invaluable prompts and exercises to support letting go, connecting to intuition, and drawing from a place of authenticity.

Amica’s Workshop went above and beyond my expectations! She was extremely generous with her time,techniques and patience, making sure she spent all the time need with each of the students. She treated everyone like we were old friends,making us all feel comfortable enough to relax and enjoy the process.I came away with a heap of new techniques and inspiration to keep on painting!

In just one day Amica has changed my approach to painting. In a fun, relaxed and supportive environment, Amica guides and encourages and is so generous with her knowledge, inspiration and resources. I would thoroughly recommend the Beautiful Chaos Workshops - don’t hesitate, just sign up!

Amica is a fabulous artist and teacher!

I’ve just done a workshop in her new studio, where she so generously shared her knowledge and skills.

I came away with my own abstract piece, resources to continue on with and the confidence to play with the mediums again.

It was such a fun day of learning and painting. I can’t wait for the next one!!


I really loved how welcoming you were. You have a warm, beautiful personality and you make your workshops fun. Thank you for ecouraging me and boosting my confidence- it’s just what I needed.
