Your inner artist
is calling.

The best adventures happen right here.

for aspiring painters

If you think you're terrible at art, you're in the right place.

Look, I get it. As much as you want to believe that whole "everyone is creative" nonsense, you know what you're capable of -- and so far, it's proven to be anything but creative genius.

But what if I told you that you don't have to shoot for creative genius? What if even just a little imperfect art every day could give you more courage, clarity, and connection in your life?


my name is kolbie, and i'm here to help make space for your creativity.

Most people are surprised to hear I'm self-taught, but it's 100% true -- art is a new and messy and lifechanging adventure for me, and that's why I'm so passionate about helping closet creatives (like you!) say "actually, I think I can do that" and embrace the power in their imperfections.

Hello, my friend. 
I'm Kolbie Blume...

...and I used to think I was terrible at art, too.

Nice to meet you
