July 23-28, 2019 on Vashon Island, Washington

Do you have a creative project and dream of taking time away to work on it? Have you always wanted to attend a retreat but find the price too daunting? Join me for a week of creativity, rejuvenation and self directed activity-you decide what you want to do and when you want to do it! You design your own personal retreat on a dreamy island a short 20 minute ferry ride from Seattle if you wish to visit the city.

I’ve been dreaming of an “art hotel” for years-a space for women to retreat together and work on whatever project is calling them, whether that is painting, writing, yoga, knitting, or simply relaxing. There is no schedule or routine-it is a week just for you!

Join me for the week this July 23-28, 2019 on Vashon Island, WA.


Nestled in the heart of Puget Sound, Vashon offers views of water or mountains at every corner. The Island is known for being an artistic, eclectic, and friendly community. The pace is slow, the attitudes are relaxed, and the scenery is lush and pastoral. Even though it is close to Seattle, it feels like it is a faraway world, a throwback to another nostalgic era.

Vashon Island is known for its arts and food scene-with farm to table options, independent coffee shops, bakeries, and wineries and vineyards.


***Please note: I will not be teaching painting in any capacity.***

This is completely self-paced and self-guided. We will keep it simple and low key. Lodging and breakfast is included in your fee. Lunch and dinner will be decided by you–shop at a local market and enjoy cooking in our gourmet kitchen or explore the local food options.

Rosie the Art Bus will most likely be at the retreat, and there will be options to go on some group activities together, including a celebration towards the end of the week. This will unfold organically throughout the week and is optional.


Check in is 5pm on Tuesday July 23. Check out is Sunday July 28 at 11am.

There are three shared rooms available and a private shared apartment above the garage (this does not have AC). If you want to book a private bed and room, just sign up for two of the slots.
