art & exploration studio

We are true believers in the power of play, art, & creativity. Our process-based approach focuses on the experience of making & creating rather than the end result. This means we value and honor each child's uniqueness and encourage them to express themselves freely. 

Painted Leaf's classes & camps are designed to promote creativity, critical thinking, & problem-solving skills. 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 and have kiddos who love to explore and get creative they'll love our classes!

We are currently working with some amazing local businesses to be able to provide a variety of classes & playgroups throughout Tampa Bay. 

You can currently find us in:

A SIMPLER PLACE FARM & MARKET

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 facilitating creative experiences, I'm working as a portrait/lifestyle photographer, exploring Tampa's parks, or working on my own art.
