 My name is Adie McDermott. I am a mixed media artist, #1 international best selling author, an adverturer who has travelled all around the world and back, a life long learner and a seeker of freedom. joy and meaning. I think with my feelings and see with my heart. I view everything with a curious, questioning mind and eyes that see beauty and wonder. 

I see creativity as an unique (safe) space where we can learn to reconnect to ourselves, express ourselves uniquely, accept ourselves and our own individual beauty wholeheartedly and transform our lifes. 

Creativity and self accpetance flow through every part of living. Once you free your creativity, self expression and can accept yourself and your unique gifts, you can do far more than just make pretty pictures, you have the tools you need to imagine and then create and live a life you love. 

The Art of Authenticity

Try my free 'Creativity Heals' Masterclass to discover how being more creative leads to huge life changes​

Hiya! I believe different is beautiful, not flawed and that authenticity is true beauty. I don’t have a 9-5 job, or a conventional life. I choose to live life my way, true to myself.

A way that incorporates my strengths, superpowers and passions, but also allows me to live in a way that suits my life-style vision, values and choices. My biggest passions are self-acceptance, self expression and creativity.

I created art even before I could hold a pencil and have been involved in community art, sharing and teaching what I know for over 10 years. My life’s mission….to be free , to be free of self-doubt, free to live my life my way, and to continuously learn and grow everyday so I can be the best version of myself possible. I have learnt a thing or too about all these things along the way. Learn more…

What students have been saying:

This has been the most freedom inspiring, nurturing art course I have ever had the pleasure of being involved in. Thankyou Adie for sharing your creativity and care. I have gone from periodic moments of creating art to setting up a dedicated space, art studio, because I am so excited to come in everyday and create. – Deb L.

“I have gone from hiding my creativity to having the confidence and freedom to believe I have an inner artist within me. Thanks so much Adie, I have wanted to do this all my life and now I am.’ – Patricia D.

“Adie has “unleashed” my creativity, which has been stifled for so long. I now just want to create every day. Even if I can’t make it to my shed that day, I’m thinking about it, and hey, if the result is not what I wanted – it doesn’t matter! With the knowledge I have learnt from Adie, I know I can transform it with “CONFIDENCE” with the processes I have learnt.’. – Leanne D.
