tam in person

Want to meet me and have artsy fun together? I want to meet you tooooo! :) I’m so pleased to announce that now that my youngest (Elliot) is a bit older I can finally start offering in-person workshops and teach on fabulous art retreats! I’m SO excited about this! I LOVE and ADORE online teaching, but meeting fellow creatives in person and spending time with them is usually deeply exhilarating and nourishing for me! :) So, without further ado, this is what I’m up to in 2014. I hope we’ll get to meet each other on some of the events I’ll be involved in!

If you want Tam to teach as part of your workshop in your country/ town or as part of a retreat you are organising contact her on willowing AT gmail.com

    Oh how I wish I could make it to your part of the world for an art retreat. What a beautiful home you have Tam, and what a beautiful area you live in! I picture all sorts of flowers growing against the outside walls, as well as all sorts of vases filled with flowers inside your home. I don’t know what else to say. You’re such a beautiful lady inside and out. I know that your next artsy retreat couldn’t be anything else but special and magical. I can’t wait to hear about it!

    Love and Peace,

    Peggy Lindenthaler

    p.s. Please change my little icon. I’m really a nice and mostly happy person!
