We are overjoyed to collaborate on another amazing Art Retreat together. This will be our fourth time in Italy, and we’re devoted to creating a beautiful balance of soul nourishment, inspiring creativity, and sisterhood!  Join us to celebrate La Dolce Vita in one of the most enchanted countries in the world!

Flora founded the “Art of Allowing Academy”, an intuitive based approach to process painting and leads online courses, workshops and international retreats. She combines her painting experience with an M.A. in Counseling Psychology, bodywork, and leadership as an education director to infuse her teaching style with a deep connection to mind, body, and spirit. With collectors worldwide, and a featured artist for Treesisters.org and Awakening Women Institute, Flora’s art has international recognition. Find out more at floraaube.com

Before painting, teaching, and selling art, Ree owned a successful decorative painting/interior design business and became a Master Faux Painter and Muralist.  Today, she brings these techniques to practical use on the canvas. Her love of texture, color, and pattern developed when she lived in Italy and Greece during young adulthood.  Memories of patina and worn plaster on the walls of the villages was imprinted upon her soul, and she recreates their elegance and grace whenever  possible.
