OUR MOBILE STUDIO
We are a process-based
art & exploration studio
We are true believers in the power of play, art, & creativity. Our studio focuses on the experience of making & creating rather than the results or finished product. This means that we value and honor each child's uniqueness and approach.
Painted Leaf's classes are designed to promote creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving and independence. Our child-led approach offers an opportunity for each child to create and freely explore their surroundings. By creating a "yes environment", a place where we say yes more often than no, we create an authentic learning experience and promote independence & self-esteem.
If you live in the Tampa Bay area have kiddos who love to explore and get creative they'll love our classes!
As a mobile studio, we bring the entire experience to your home, organization or school.
We are currently working with some amazing local organizations to be able to provide a variety of classes & playgroups throughout Tampa Bay.
You can currently find us in:

OWNER & DIRECTOR
Dedicated to providing unique creative environments
Hi! I'm so happy you are interested in Painted Leaf Studio!
Since graduating with an art degree from the University of South Florida I have searched for a way to connect my love for the arts with my passion for encouraging our future innovators to be creative, critical thinkers and invested in learning. Inspired by my incredibly creative & curious daughter, Painted Leaf was born as a way to share my passion for art, outdoor education & sensory experiences.
When I'm not teaching kids I'm working as a portrait/lifestyle photographer, exploring Tampa's parks, or working on my own art.
