Faith Evans-Sills

Hi I'm Faith, painter, retreat leader and creative guide. In my work I draw inspiration from nature’s wild and small moments, with my heart in Abstraction. I'm classically trained with both a BFA and MFA in painting, along with 20+ years of personal painting experience. Inspiring women to manifest their most heartfelt ideas through creating art is one of my passions! My first book, "Painting the Sacred Within" co-authored with artist Mati McDonough, is a guide for women, to go deeply inside themselves finding their own creative voice. My Painting the Sacred Within Classes here are co-taught with Mati! My husband painter Francis Sills is now teaching Oil Painting here! Find out more about him at We live with our 3 children by the sea in Charleston, SC. Learn more about all the ways to paint with me at
