“With one sentence impeccably timed Nicolene pulls me out of my creative blocks and into flow. Allowing me to birth my own creativity.”

- Alex Diepering

“I am required to be creative all day - but in front of the computer... touching paint and expressing on paper has just been SO relaxing!”

- Mireille van Reenen

“I am so glad I booked a package of sessions with Nicolene, because it held me accountable to show up every week. This way I really saw the progress and couldn't hide from the ways I block my own creativity. I had to face my demons and painted through their stories.

- Stiaan le Roux

"I am sometimes spiritually connected and spiritually cynical... in Nicolene's classes I feel like this paradox is allowed. There is enough mystery and muse as well as practical tips and inspirational prompts to keep me making things"

- Stevie Biffen

"My biggest take away from tonight's session is that losing control is vital to creative expression - thank you for helping me release."

- Diane du Toit

"The unusually disruptive and intuitive practices Nicolene uses to teach painting has really allowed me to leave my expectations at the door and drop into creative flow."

- Alex Diepering
