St. Lucia Plein air painter workshop - Jan. 2010

After an absence of a few years, Charles & I are returning to St. Lucia in January 2010.

My husband and I taught painting and photography workshops there each January for 8 years.

The photo workshops were for Professional Photographers of America, where other professional photographers could take courses towards a degree. The painting workshops, were an opportunity for me to meet artists that live in St. Lucia, like now, IPAP Regional Ambassador Alcina Nolley, a very talented artist, as well as artists who traveled to the island for the workshops.

I will be doing

2, 3 and four day plein air painting workshops

all info about the workshop & for registration is at

We're looking forward to going back to visit

all the friends we have made over the years.

Don't put off JOY...

the minute you make a decision to do something

wonderful for yourself,

you experience JOY,

far ahead of the experience in 'reality'

Her passion for the outdoors has taken her to the summit of all 53 ranked 14,000’ peaks in Colorado. She has explored the landscape “up close and personal” through multiple marathons, hikes, and backpack trips. Churchley finds inspiration painting en plein air in western Colorado where she lives, to the far corners of the world where she frequently travels, pursuing her other passion of birdwatching.
