Color of Woman 2018 Graduation and Guild Gathering, Maui Hawaii
One of the greatest gifts of being part of Color of Woman and completing your Certification is to be invited to continue connection with fellow graduates from your class year and who have come before you through the Intentional Creativity Guild.
Our Guild is over 450 strong with women educated in Intentional Creativity who have a common vision to serve their communities, school system, hospitals, prisons, mental health and social services, and institutions that need our work. Our Guild has worked collaboratively to bring Intentional Creativity to workshops, classes, retreats, cruise ships, and luxury destinations as well as teaching online.
We are all about women creating their own content and bringing their work into the world. Here are some of the Intentional Creativity Teachers doing this work, and there are many more…
Flora Aube is a first year student of Color of Woman and she founded the Art of Allowing Academy – and while her approach has expanded, her roots were nourished in our classroom.
Catt Geller created Cosmic Smashbooking and is now certifying teachers herself, rocking the known world.
Amber Kuileimailani Bonnici created Woman Unleashed, largely rooted in the work, she claims the lineage of Intentional Creativity and she teaches it still to tens of thousands.
Jassy Watson Earthist created Soulscape™ Painting and just launched her first-ever Teacher Training within our Guild.
Jenafer Owen created the Jenafer Joy Approach, teaches the best collage of all time online, directs all my high-level programs and guides our graduates to create their own online classes (and is the mother of my God-daughter Hazel!)
Heidi S. Moondancer founded an online women’s community, serving thousands of women online and inviting Intentional Creativity teachers to share their gifts via online teaching.
Suzanne Grace combined her jewelry making with her painting and has recently engaged in some of the most profound business she could ever imagine with her art, and opened a gallery and workshop for her production called Rock Mama.
Mandisa Amber, another first year student, teaches within the training and is teaching at a university. She also developed the diversity-based curriculum for artists that we are sharing in Color of Woman.
Emily Grieves just founded her own retreat center in Mexico and is teaching Intentional Creativity there!
And all of these women have also sold their paintings to Collectors! And the list goes on... Can you see yourself sharing a step by step process for women to create a painting of the feminine the way that you have? Chances are many students thought they were not going to be able to do it, but they did! Now, because of our Guild of over 320 teachers worldwide, the world is populated by thousands and thousands of images of the feminine that WOMEN define. Not some magazine cover, Hollywood version of women as symbols for some unmet desire. Nope. We create etheric, empowered, cosmic, rooted images of the feminine and are changing the way our children are raised in a culture that honors and celebrates women.
"There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.” ~ Teilhard de Chardan

I illustrated my first children’s picture book last year: Grandma’s School of Life by Sulara James, Illustrated by Barbara Hall
I was honored to fully illustrate a children's unique picture book last year. Grandma's School of Life was written by Sulara James, author, clairaudient, and healer. Using my shared vision of her 'Grandma' wisdom that teaches children to live from the love and light that they are, I used my own intuitive vision with sacred intention, putting symbol and image to paper so that children of any age, even small ones, could understand the message. It was a joy to work with Sulara James, a kind and enlightened being who brings her own real-life experiences with her own grandchildren to create this book. When one of her grandchildren was worried that Santa wouldn't bring him any gifts because he had been mean to his sister, she realized she wanted to tell him, and all children, that they are inherently good and that we are all using 'the school of life' to learn and grow and be kind, and that the creator loves all.
In Sulara's words: "GRANDMA’S SCHOOL OF LIFE tells the story of Jacob and Amanda, who are spending the night at their grandparents’ house. Grandma, much to their delight, answers their questions about the Creator and life upon Mother Earth. While GRANDMA’S SCHOOL OF LIFE is written especially for children ages 4 to 12, it is a book for all of God’s children, young and old. Excerpt: “You are the twinkle in the Creator’s eyes,” Grandma adds. 'When you love yourself and are kind to yourself, you are shining God’s Love and Light everywhere.' "
To order: Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ~ Book is hardbound in a sturdy, glossy bright cover, with high quality reproductions on quality paper ~ sure to last a long time. This hardback, brightly illustrated picture book for children of all ages is $25.00 which includes shipping.

DINA TIBBS Amused Woman Studios, Centennial, CO Color of Woman 2017 Graduate
I am proud that as a COW 2017 graduate, I was catalyzed to bringing my 17 year vision into form and opened a space for women to come together in community, self-express, and remember who they are at a soul level. My community is consistently growing and connecting more and more deeply, and using Intentional Creativity® to access, listen to, trust, and act upon their Inner Wisdom.
Around 2015, Julie found herself most dissatisfied with the life she was experiencing. Her body was rejecting the monotony of routine and the conforming lifestyle of trading time for dollars while wearing a mask of authenticity. She stumbled upon, or perhaps her Muse led her to an art workshop called ‘Dreaming on Paper’ by Lisa Sonora. On her way home from that life altering experience, she began dreaming up the business that she would one day begin. In March of 2017, after a couple of years of workshops and ALOT of books read, Amazon recommended a book to her: “Tea with the Midnight Muse” by Shiloh Sophia. She had not heard of Shiloh as of yet, but the Muse in her recognized the tribe she had been looking for all this time. She ordered the book right away. Before the sun had set the day after that book arrived, she was a Cosmic Cowgirl and had signed up for the workshop, “Tea with the Muse”.
In 2018, Julie graduated from Color of Woman Teacher’s Certification, with plans to open an art barn where she would offer Intentional Creativity workshops combined with Horse-Spiration. The purpose was to introduce people, mostly women and girls of all ages to the enlightenment of Intentional Creativity blended with the magic of working along with horses as muses in hopes of providing healing, refreshment, and an inspiring place to reconnect with their own muses. While attending the trainings, she had also acquired her very own herd of horses, mostly rescues to aid in the process. Mother Nature entered the scene with a flurry. Rains came to her part of the country in September of 2018 and did not let up until March or April of 2019. Rather than wait on the building of her art barn during this time, Julie adjusted her vision and rented a beautiful studio on one of the busiest streets in her town. She changed the name of her business from Painted Horse Feathers to Creativity Café Illuminà and began to lead Intentional Creativity© workshops.
In January of 2019, she went part-time at her ‘day job’ in order to free up more time to devote to the art business. It is now October, 2019, nearly one year after graduating from Color of Woman. In all truth, things have started off quite slow. She had plans of leaving the part time job mid-year but that has not transpired. She continues to build her curriculum and her tribe of beloveds. And she is still enraptured by the prospect of bringing Intentional Creativity© to her community and living her life as a full time Artist and Entreprenuer.

On May 9, 2019 I attended the reception at BWI airport hosted by the first lady of Maryland Yumi Hogan and Ricky Smith, the Executive director of the airport, to honor the Hungarian artists and local artists. I also attended other dignitaries from the Hungarian Embassy and Kossuth Foundation and two cute Hungarian puli dogs. I was so pleased to share the healing energy of my sacred paintings with potentially millions of weary passengers. I participated with 5 of my IC paintings.
