A huge passion of mine is travelling and learning about people and places. To combine this passion with art making is just about perfect. Recently I attended an art retreat offered by Australian artist Tracy Verdugo in magical Bali. What a dream! Tracy is a very warm and generous person - she opens her heart to each group she teaches and creates a positive and supportive atmosphere.

The retreat was held at a beautiful villa on the west coast of Bali at Balian Beach. A group of all women, mostly from Australia, as well as a couple of people from the USA and Canada. It was an amazing experience and I know I will be influenced by it for a long time.
