WELCOME TO MY ARTIST'S RETREAT IN SYDNEY

I have a private artist's retreat & pied-à-terre located in Sydney, Australia where I write my books, hold consultations and collaborations, work on my photographs, illustrations and exhibitions,  and generally, create everyday alchemy...

In between my projects, I mentor creative beings to support them in their process & projects: I am a creative catalyst, which means once you connect with me this way, you'll begin a transformation immediately. 

Throughout the year, I offer my artist's retreat to other creative individuals - a truly unique opportunity to step into an immersive creative environment...

Bookings for 2018 are now open...

The Everyday Alchemy Artist's Retreat is a beautiful sun-filled one bedroom apartment close to the bay in the heart of Balmain.

Housed in a humble 1980's white brick building, tucked away from the street, with a small galley kitchen and bathroom off the bedroom tiled in slate. The main living area is a multi-disciplined creative space, with two work tables, one that doubles as a 4-6 person gathering table. There is a vintage lounging chair for reading & quiet reflection, and a small balcony off the bedroom with two wooden chairs.
