ART & WORKSHOPS CREATED FOR THE SACRED EVERYDAY
British artist Joanne Webb creates meaningful heart centred art about our inner landscape and inverse for a growing spiritual community. Her original pieces and in person workshops are inspired by Kirtan, meditation, divinity, consciousness, mindfulness and our deeper Buddha nature.
WELCOME - Thank you for dropping by and saying hello today! Let me introduce myself and grab a cup of coffee!
I'm the founder of an Arts Council England funded Art-On-Prescription project in Chichester, West Sussex, UK called 'Creative Metta'. I work in collaboration and raise awareness of the positive impact of arts on our wellbeing and mental health wellness. I work partnership with local services including Chichester District Council, NHS Innovation Primary Care, Aldingbourne Trust, Pathfinders West Sussex, NHS West Sussex Trust and My Sisters House Women's Center.
The Creative Metta workshops include meditation, mindful painting, calming music, access to nature, gentle movement and creativity to calm, soothe and create space for healing and my community.
In August 2021 I also launched 'The Sacred Creative Sunday' workshop. This happens once a month at New Park Community Center. When you book your space 1% of the ticket cost goes to support Mental Health UK.
Let me tell you more...
I graduated the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 1998 and and then ran away to live on Lakota Sioux Indian Reservation in Montana! I am a full time painter and live in an old town house with my husband and a cat called Bella Black Elk.
I create original oil and acrylic paintings inspired by heart centred teachings, Sanskrit chanting, meditation and Buddhism.
I paint and make whatever lights me up, reflecting on the deeper source and working in a way that contributes to wellbeing, happiness and curiosity is my focus. Only in the last decade have I arrived at a kind of equanimity. I love to chant and sing in Sanskrit when I paint, immerse myself in heart centred teachings, Kirtan music and meditate in my art studio.
Most artists are inspired by other artists but what inspires my work is the repetitive sound of Kirtan devotional music, my deepening meditation practice and spiritual path. I love to chant whilst I paint and this has cultivated a new flow of artistic energy. I'm not very good at singing but it still brings me joy and quietens the inner critic!
These daily habits have become meaningful to me in unexpected ways, changed my studio to a sacred space, enabled me to transcend an old mindset and created a beautiful ripple effect beyond the art.

Josephine - Painting Retreat 2020
I loved how the days flowed within the structured daily program, that they brought the outside in and took the inside out. I loved the music, meditations, conversations, grounding in and out, playfulness, quiet, calm, joy, studio environment both inside and out, the collaborative art, the motivational cards and getting to spend time with extraordinary women!
Victoria - Go With The Flow Workshop
Amazing! Joanne holds a wonderful space to enable creation. The yoga classes that I attend keep a similar algorithm! Joanne holds the space so that the energy can flow. I found I was able to do things I would have been nervous about without the chantings and special space

Becca - Go With The Flow Workshop
Thank you for holding a nurturing soul workshops.For sharing the meanings, the power of chant and meditation and for providing a space to enable our creative energy to flow. I really look forward to re-grouping
Lynne - Painting retreat 2020
I loved it, my first ever painting experience so was nervous and excited at the same time. I learned so much in just 4 days. My belief that I’m not a painter has gone! Having the luxury of 2 very different artists teaching, guiding, encouraging, inspiring, sharing their wisdom, philosophies and artistic skill. Having you working on your own paintings alongside us was brilliant.
Lizzie - Go with the flow workshop
What a beautiful day with you Joanne. You have created the perfect space for mind, body and spirit. You are a soul we all need to be with so that we can return to ourselves. Thank you for allowing that to happen!
Paul - Artist Mentoring Session & Professional Development
Joanne mentored me in the final part of my Final Major Project at college and help me generate ideas for a final out come, also for the end of year show. I passed the course with a distinction and had some very good responses from people who came to the show. I found Joanne to be easy and her knowledge to be refreshing, this helped me to take the project to the final stage''
Anne - Go With The Flow Workshop
