Ready to reclaim your creativity?

Reinvent yourself.
Become who you were meant to be.
Honor all that you are.


Hi, I'm Minette, recovering overachiever and Queen of Reinvention.


I have always been a risk-takeradventurer and curiosity seeker who was comfortable jumping feet first into new endeavors.

My mantra is, "how hard can it be?"

The answer?

Way harder than I anticipated but also more fun, more challenging and more fulfilling than I knew was possible.

No version of reinvention has been more challenging than my journey to claiming "I am an artist."

  • In the past 20 years I have built several successful businesses and am finally owning that I am a multipassionate serial entrepreneur who loves writing, art, poetry, teaching, coaching and building businesses.
  • In the past decade, I have published 3 books and am working on my 4th. I've written hundreds of blog posts, not to mention completing 6 different coaching and training certifications.
  • A few years ago I started selling my art which took me by surprise.

I am a seekerdeep thinker and rebel on an eternal quest to become the best version of myself. I am sure it will be harder than I thought. But I am up for the challenge.

    “I had no idea I was an artist, but a nudge from the universe pointed me to Minette's Wild Creative Abandon retreat in August. I am so grateful! Minette provides a safe space not only for allowing the sleeping inner artist to come out and play, but also to process whatever might be happening below the surface. The circle of women was an amazing supportive space to share all of the celebrations and vulnerabilities that came along with my creative expression. I also took home 3 pieces of painted art work that I'm very proud of. It was lovely to have all of the supplies provided, simple suggestions (no instructions) and support when I felt like I hit a wall in my creative process. I can't recommend this retreat enough!”

    “After attending Minette's Wild Creative Abundance art retreat I went home with so much creative inspiration and curiosity for what I might create next in my life and in my art work. In our 2.5 days together we explored our inner landscapes with various mixed media techniques, creative prompts, and sharing in an intimate circle of amazing women. The weekend was filled with laughter, deep connection, new friendships, and an explosion of creative expression! Even though I didn't know anyone I felt liked I truly belonged. As a facilitator and retreat leader Minette brings so much passion for creating process art and making it very simple and accessible for all skill levels. She is a master of fun creative prompts and questions to get you diving deep into your own inner exploration. She created a beautiful, empowering, supportive, and deliciously rich art retreat weekend. I can't wait for the next one!”
