I thought, “This is it. This is what it means to really love. It is art of the highest order.”

If you have been following along with me on Facebook and Instagram recently, you know I have been sharing a deeply personal story — a story of love. My dear friend and professional photographer, Tara Morris, also documented my journey in this beautiful and intimate blog post.


Video Winners!

I was so touched to see such bravery and vulnerability — and hilarity — in the videos created for my Bloom Trueapalooza giveaways that I wanted to honor the ones that enabled public sharing by sharing them here.

I also had an impossible time choosing just five winners (you all make it so hard!), so I’ve decided to applaud and reward everyone who was brave enough to make a video by gifting all eighteen people a spot in the Bloom True E-Course. Bravery is kind of my jam after all ๐Ÿ™‚


TRIBE Tuesday: Trudy Rice

Trudy Rice was a participant in my October E-Course, and along with many of the other Bloomers in that particular course, she is taking advantage of the 6 months of class access by going through the entire course again…so cool…and smart… if I do say so myself ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here is Trudy’s story…

Happy almost new year everyone!

I hope your holidays have been peaceful and rejuvenating. As we gear up for another year of creative unfolding, I’m happy to share one final TRIBE Tuesday story for 2014 (there will be more to come in 2015!).

This inspiring success story comes from Ashley Joon…


TRIBE Tuesday: Kerry C. Mitchell

And now for something completely different on this TRIBE Tuesday. We are excited to share the story and digital work of Kerry C. Mitchell who participated in my E-Course in a truly unique way. Talk about making the process your own, and finding ways to paint no matter what! Her inspiring story follows.


TRIBE Tuesday: Lori Tapani + New E-Course Content!

Hello friends! We’re happy to share another Bloom True story with you today for our TRIBE Tuesday feature.

Introducing E-Course student, Lori Tapani…enjoy.

Lori’s Story…

I am so very thankful for the Bloom True class! It was by chance that I noticed Flora’s book and decided to buy it. Once I read the book, I knew that I needed to take the class. This has been my first experience using acrylic paints and I have loved it so much. The act of picking a color or colors that I love and just “going with it” has been so rewarding.


TRIBE Tuesday: Janine Adamo Lancour

I love sharing the inspiring stories of the ever-widening Bloom True Tribe, and I hope you are enjoying them too!

This week’s TRIBE Tuesday continues with Janine Adamo Lancour, who took my September 2013 E-Course. She remains an active member of the Bloom True Tribe and has graciously shared her story here…


Bloom True Boot Camp: Final Prompts + E-Course Winners!

Welcome to our final two days of Bloom True Boot Camp…woohoo, YAY, we did it!

I want to thank you so much for joining me on this month-long creative journey. What started out as tiny flash of inspiration during a swim in a lake turned into such a beautiful and inspiring creative global adventure.

Your posts, pictures and reflections have brought me so much joy and reminded me (once again) how powerful it is to join together with like-hearted people dedicated to their creative paths and waking spirits. {{THANK YOU}}.


Bloom True TRIBE :: Student Gallery!

Today is a big day around here. It’s the very first day of “school” for my latest group of Bloom True E-Course students and excitement is in the air! In honor of this new brave beginning, I’m sharing some of the awesome work and reflections from past bloomers. Gotta admit, I’m pretty proud of them — you’ll see why.


Registration for February Bloom True class now open!

Hi everyone! Just a quick note to let you know that registration is now open for the next round of my Bloom True E-Course. The next five-week course will begin in February, 2014, and you will have six months of extended access after the course finishes (so you can go back over it whenever you want during that time).

I continue to be floored by the response to this course…


Say hello to your true self – Bloom True class gallery (3)

โ€œThis class was just what I needed to get painting again and try acrylics. Flora taught me to see all that is perfect instead of the faults. It’s been so long since I’ve enjoyed painting this much!” Cinda Bauman

Do you want to access your inner creativity, feel more connected to your life and feel confident to express your true self on canvas? Bloom True might just be for you. Take a look at these paintings created by participants of the class


Time to tune in – Bloom True class gallery (2)

โ€œThis class brought a whole new level to my artwork. The color, layering and freedom bring pure joy along my artful journey.โ€ Marji Thompson

A lot of people take ‘Bloom True the E-Course’ expecting how to learn how to paint with acrylics. Of course they learn that, but more importantly they learn how to paint like THEM. Like their true selves. And how do they do that? By learning how to tune into their intuition like never before. This course is not just about painting, it is about life, and it is a revelation. Look at the gorgeous images which emerged from class participants. If you want to join us for the next session of this extraordinary class (beginning on January 28), find out more and register here.
