Through my understanding of creating energy paintings that affect body, mind and spirit, I have noticed that people are becoming very detached from their emotional bodies with the excess of screen time. By offering the opportunity to explore the embodiment of emotions through painting, I hope that people might start to find their way back into their bodies. It is a time to unplug from technology and start to listen to one’s inner voice and see what mysteries are there for the discovering.
Painting very quick, spontaneous work permits the subconscious mind to reveal its truths in ways that will awe, surprise, delight, and awaken. Paint the energy of the emotions and feel where this lives in the body. Engage all the senses to better know these emotions from within.
Because we are painting what the energy of emotions feels like, rather than what it might look like, artistic ability is irrelevant.
I then help participants interpret what they have painted allowing for a new way of engaging with their emotions both inwardly and outwardly.
A two hour experience is $150. Clothes for painting in are recommended.
Please call Candace @ 416.948.6178 for more information and to book a session.
“The analysis uncovered areas of my experience and expressions around the emotion of love that I was not fully aware of until that moment. My subconscious selection of colours reveal the richness of emotions one feels when in love. It was fascinating seeing it laid before my eyes in vivid colour.. I felt I had run an emotional marathon that was both enlightening, cathartic, and hopeful. I would definitely recommend Candace’s exploration of emotion through painting to anyone wanting more insight into their emotional and spiritual world.”

“After Candace explained the process to me she encouraged me to just paint – “don’t stop to think, just paint”. At first, I didn’t know if I could paint without thinking. But I managed to curb my thoughts and I just painted. I “felt” the paintings instead of thinking about them. That’s the best way I can describe it. And it was one of the most powerful things about the session for me. Through the process she had designed, combined with her direction I was able to quiet my mind and just paint with emotion.”
