“Life is a big canvas; throw all the paint on it you can!” -D. Kaye

Hi there, I’m Malini, scientist-turned-artist/writer/teacher. I’m delighted you stopped by :) If you’re here because you’ve heard of my unique art workshops for beginners, you're in the right place!

SO ... Is this you?

Have you ever gazed longingly at a beautiful work of abstract art, and thought, “I wish I could do that, but I don’t have a creative bone in my body!” Do you yearn to express your creativity, but you just don’t know how? Are weekly art classes impossible, because you just can’t spare the time? Yes, yes and yes? Well then, things may be about to change for you!


The ABSOLUTE BEGINNER: You’re the one that’s always been curious about your artistic side, but you haven’t a clue where to begin. Or the one that’s never had the time to attend weekly art classes. Or perhaps it all seems too overwhelming … maybe you feel you’ve left it too late to learn. Hey, I designed this workshop for YOU! In one jam-packed, fun day, you’ll lose that fear of the unknown. And learn absolutely heaps. I’ve got you covered!

The NOW-AND-THEN-DABBLER: So you paint a little. But you love it a lot! And you dream of one day learning how to do it all  ‘properly’. Now’s your chance. Use my seven step process to give you some clear structure. Let my intensive but oh-so-fun approach invigorate you. You’ll be painting with more purpose and passion in no time!


I meet hundreds of wonderful, worried, would-be creatives in my workshops.And in just ONE DAY, I fill their hearts and hands with possibilities! It’s an insanely busy day, full of laughs and love, and the beautiful art that emerges is just spectacular. This event that began in my backyard just a few years ago, with five young folk who were keen to learn to paint has now grown into my consuming passion and helped transform the lives of so many people.  It is an incredible honour to be part of another’s creative journey, and that delight I witness in my students as they rediscover their creativity… aaah, it makes my heart sing :)

Thank you for your interest in me and my work. It would be my honour to make a difference in your life, and help unlock your creativity!

You have so much joy ahead of you :)

I lovingly prepare materials for EACH student in advance, so if you can’t make it:

  1. If there is insufficient time to fill your place, there will be a cancellation fee of 50% of the workshop fee.
  2. If you cancel at the very last minute due to emergencies or illness, I will pop you into another class with no cancellation fee.
  3. 'NO SHOWS' (who don't contact me) won't be refunded or re-scheduled!
  4. But really, I am accommodating and flexible and I WANT you to be there, so just give me enough notice (one week minimum) and I’ll cheerfully re-schedule you into another class. :-)

I'm a bit late doing this review but would like to say that I loved every moment of the day course at Applecross . Malini it was lovely to spend the day with you, very informative, we seemed to have covered a lot of ground. The day was packed full of useful tips that I am trying out in my own time now but I would have no hesitation in taking another course with Malini down the track. The course ticked all the boxes in an instruction orientated way but was way better ... it was fun and thought provoking , a lesson in creativity too. Thanks Malini Sally

What a perfect day we had. This was my second class with Malini and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Malini has a wonderful teaching technique, and with her guidance you create art like you never knew you could. The day goes so fast while you chit-chat, laugh, and create. The venue is perfect, the art supplies are generous, the chocolates are tasty. Thank you Malini for introducing me to art.
