Studio * Gallery * Updates * Events
Welcoming me with an abundance of natural light, my L-shaped studio provides space to create, move, and expand my heart while painting, designing, writing, or contemplating. I am so pleased and grateful to be located in the old Florida setting in historic Towles Court Artist Colony with a plethora of old oaks, palms, bamboo, bromeliads, and scattering geckos.
I also have the distinct opportunity to share in the creative process with a variety of artists and healers. Hosting expressive arts workshops, yoga classes, local musicians, essential oil classes, didgeridoo, book signings, and so on only enriches the visionary environment evolving in the studio. See the updated events list at the bottom of this page.
Morphing from studio to gallery, this space is the perfect setting to display my paintings and inspiring stories alongside their transformation to clothing. My wearable art is just that - clothing transferred from my original paintings. The simplicity, versatility, and ease of this clothing line allows me to move through my day with one outfit - from yoga mat to meetings to dinner to beach walk.
Both in the gallery and through my online shop, I offer you stylish and comfortable clothing created from my intuitive paintings. Wrap your body temple in wearable art and elevate your spirit!

Friday January 11th; 5:30- 7:30 at The Clever Cup Coffee Shop https://www.theclevercup.com
I couldn’t be happier having my paintings hanging at The Clever Cup, my favorite. It’s such a relaxing, welcoming, and simultaneously stimulating space. The owners and baristas are the sweetest people and brew the best organic coffees and teas.
My heart is connected to this coffee shop. It is where I finished writing, editing, and formatting my just published book. Some days I opened and closed the place! Never rushed, I felt right at home in my comfy seat against the wall looking at the art on the wall - not my art then but another local artist. This community space is the best!

RESPONDING TO A LOVED ONE STRUGGLING WITH ADDICTION with Lisa L. Frechette, M. A., M. Ed.
January 22nd; 6-7pm; 1975 Morrill Street, Sarasota, FL 34236; by donation
The book, Transforming to Joy; Responding to My Son’s Struggle With Addiction by Lisa L. Frechette, M.A., M.Ed. has just been published. The frustration and anger at her son for repeating destructive behaviors and at herself for not being able to control or cure him began to affect Lisa's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. She couldn't go on the way she had been. This book is the compelling story of her conscious choice to change.
Lisa will read a selection from her book and discuss it in more detail. A key focus of the talk will be on healthy strategies to respond to challenging situations. A question and answer session will follow.
You are not alone. This gathering will provide you with support, strategies, and hope for happier moments.
RSVP Lisa at 941-313-2175 or Lisa@TransformingtoJoy.com
