Just off a dead-end rural
road is a place we call
acres of rambling woods and meadow call for you to explore, relax, reflect, and draw inspiration from nature.
Let your stress melt away as you come down the
gravel tree-lined driveway and enter nature's retreat. The views are picturesque Wisconsin with a mix of hardwood and evergreen
trees along with the cornfields and pastures of nearby farms. Programs have been developed in the creative arts and nature.
Individuals or groups can come, escape the daily grind, connect with nature, & of course be involved in an interactive
program. We have incorporated the necessary adjustments for accessibility to the studios and some of the natural surroundings,
providing a comfortable setting for all.
feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, revitalized, and enriched.
During the lunch break you're invited to wander down to the picnic tables in the meadow or just take
a stroll, following trails and pathways into a variety of wooded areas. Benches and chairs are scattered along the way,
providing opportunities to rest, reflect and relax.
I'm here, I do, I teach, I love
the 'aha' moment, for myself, but especially for students. What I do is eclectic in nature, I learn, play, try variations
with direction, individualize, diversify, change, explore and challenge the process, look for solutions, often experimental,
new/different, and why not? I strive to provide these opportunities to others through my studio/workshop space, Whispering
Woodlands, a retreat to nature for the creative mind.
