I am Catriona Towriss, and I am an artist and a creative coach. But just four years ago, I was a full-time lecturer in Population Studies with a once-a-week life drawing practice and a childhood dream of being an artist. Now my life is built around my creativity.
In order to make this happen, I have moved through SO many doubts and fears about my ability to be an artist, learnt how to cultivate inspiration and execute ideas, made a routine that supports my creativity and found the confidence to share my art
with the world.
I don’t want you to spend years trying to figure all of that out alone! I work with people like you, who want to develop their creative confidence and make more of their art. I have supported people with all kinds of artistic practices, at all levels of experience from across the world, to find their creative flow.
My former client Kristin Neudorf talks about how she

Mid-way through the course, there will be a break from the live-classes to give you an opportunity to absorb the lessons, complete the exercises, and implement the ideas you're discovering.
In the last week of the course, instead of the live-class, you will be able to book an hour-long one-on-one consultation with me, with the opportunity to ask questions, gain clarity and discuss any challenges.
"When I first encountered Catriona, I hadn't written for years after a demoralising experience during my undergraduate creative writing degree. Six months later, I'm now collaborating with two artists on two different children's book projects and writing my own fantasy novel."

Some good questions:
Is the course for all kinds of creatives?
Yes! Finding Flow is for anyone with an existing creative practice: whether you are a visual artist, writer, musician, photographer, performer or something else entirely. The course focuses on the principles of creativity as a whole, so that you can apply them to your individual practice.
Is the course suitable for me if I am not seeking commercial success from my creativity?
Yes it is! The course will support you to make more art, regardless of whether you want to make an income from it. The key to developing creative confidence is to give yourself the freedom to make your art without expecting it to provide for you financially. We will touch on the financial aspects of creativity, but it is not a focus of the course.
I have a lot of commitments in my life at the moment, will I be able to make the most of this course?
To make the most of the course, you will need to commit to attending the weekly live classes and to set aside one to two hours during the week to work through the individual reflection exercises. This investment of your time will maximise your chances of creative transformation during, and beyond, the course.
What if I cannot make a live classes
The live classes will happen on Tuesday evenings at 19.00 SAST (17.00 - 19.00 GMT/UTC), if you cannot attend a class the recording will be made available to you. In order to make the most of the course, you should commit to attending at least eight out of the ten sessions. If you think you cannot commit to this, I suggest you enroll on a future iteration of the course.
Will Find Flow be offered again?
Almost certainly. Likely later in 2023. If now isn't the right time, there will be other opportunities. While I'd love for you to enroll, this course requires some time and commitment to do the work, and I'd rather see you take it when the timing is right for you. The only advantage in not waiting is that developing your creative practice takes time and starting now means you'll be so much further ahead by this time next year.
