Isabelle inspires creativity. She is a great artist with talent and passion and you can see it clearly while looking at her art or experiencing her teaching.

I had the pleasure of attending an Encaustic workshop with Isabelle and I’m not sure I can find the right words to explain how much I got out of it. It ticked all the boxes. I got to spend the whole day being creative. I got to watch an artist teach what she so clearly loves and that is good for the soul… you can so easily get swept away with Isabelle’s excitement, enthusiasm and pure love for what she does and I got to be part of that, what a privilege. I got two beautiful encaustic pieces that I treasure. I got a new medium to play with, I made new friends and I most certainly got Isabelle’s contact details so I can attend the next workshop. If you want to explore your creative side, I couldn’t recommend this more. You have nothing to lose but you have all the above to gain.
