About Jackie

I love Helping Empty Nesters to Re-Discover Who They Are Again Through Art & Creativity.

Have the kids grown up and left home, or are at that age where you don’t need to do everything for them? Have you always wanted to get back in touch with your creativity and remember how to play, like you did before the kids, family and work took all your time and energy? Are you just looking for a way to express yourself, and want to learn some new skills in a safe, supportive environment?

You’ve come to the right place! The Empty Nesters Art Expression Group is custom made for those of you who have a little bit of time on your hands now that the kids are all grown and want to explore your creativity. Why let life pass on by, and keep working only for others? Come and join the team at Topaze Art and Creative Workshops in the beautiful Perth Hills and get back in touch with who you are. Find yourself again through the creative process, you just never know what fabulous talents you might discover or rediscover!

I’ve been creating and teaching art for more than 20 years, as well as being a Creative Coach, and if there is one thing, I believe it’s that anyone, ANYONE, can create. Art comes from your heart and no matter what your level of skill, once you allow yourself the space to let go you will find that unique spark that is you, all through the creation of your vision.
There is no pressure to be able to draw or paint, in fact if you have never tried painting before you will be surprised at how easy you find the whole process. At the Topaze Art studio, we have so many different materials for you to explore as you learn new skills and let loose with your self-expression. No two works are the same as here we will help you to use your intuition to guide you in your creations. Every class has limited numbers, so that you have the support you need to explore without the overwhelm.

> Group workshops are available mornings on Weekdays and Saturdays, check the calendar to see what is coming up.

> As a coach as well as an art teacher, I also offer classes just for you, where you create and express yourself with my guidance, or you can get a small group of friends together and have a day just for your circle.

> Workshops go for 90 minutes to 3 hours, include a light morning tea and refreshments, and all art materials (you don’t need to bring anything).

> Classes are 2 hours per session and run for 4 weeks, exploring different materials, but are driven by your curiosity and what you’d like to achieve. All art materials are supplied, and light refreshments (tea, coffee and biccies) as well.

There is so much more to life! Join Empty Nesters and meet like-minded folks, learn new skills, laugh a lot as you discover hidden talents and rediscover yourself.
