HELLO, INTUITIVE BEAUTY ❤

Welcome I'm Chrissy, an Australian Intuitive Artist. I specialise in artworks, card decks and classes that nourish the inner spirit and creative wellbeing of women and kids.

Over the last 20+ years in my career, I’ve worked as an Intuitive Artist and Early Childhood Educator; sharing my love for colour and creativity as a tool for inspiration and wellbeing. Behind the scenes, I’m always growing and developing my personal wellbeing practices and weaving them into my artworks, classes and intuitive offerings for women + kids. Right now, I’m studying a Bachelor Art Therapy, which I absolutely adore and is providing me with so many heart-opening tools for daily wellbeing and classes.

My artworks have been described as colourful, spiritual and inspiring for kids and women alike. I weave together drawing, painting, collage and my love for nature, with mindful self-love processes that are grounded in intuitive connection + personal growth. 

The artworks + offerings you find here are the colourful fruits of my journey.

Connecting with our intuition and creativity takes time. I know it can feel challenging amongst the demands of others. However, I have learned that slowing down to embrace our inner voice benefits both us AND our loved ones - ALWAYS. Our authentic expressions are so needed in the world and everyone benefits when we embrace the full spectrum of who we are as colourful, creative and passionate human beings.

Our Intuition is the guiding force for a beautiful life. Creative practices are like wellbeing pathways on our meandering journey.

So let’s embrace who we are and explore play in the process.

Artfully yours,

ChrissyForeman Intuitive Artist
