Your Fellow Retreaters

Sonja Seiler (she/her)

I’m Sonja, founder of Nurture, ardent lover of butter, candlelight and singing in harmony. Card carrying INFJ/Manifesting Generator. A ‘food storyteller’ at heart, I create custom menus and food experiences using food as a tool for connection and can’t wait to connect with all of you! I’m also excited to be building towards my dream of running a Nurture Farmhouse ‘coworking B&B’.

Frances Beatty - Bio Photo

Frances Beatty (she/her)

I’m Frances, a photographer, artist, educator and mama. Nature is my muse; music, movies, and community keep my spirit alive, and I thrive on fostering creativity in others. I cherish quiet moments, meaningful conversations, and sharing delicious food and stories. Hugs are pure magic, and I’m an avid reader who loves creating art with my hands. Vulnerability and new experiences are my guiding stars.

Christie Wong (she/her)

I’m Christie, an illustrator, textile artist, natural pigments and dye-maker, coach, business manager, and just the right dose of psych-nerd. My work touches the far corners of many industries: marketing, media production, education, hospitality, therapy, fashion and the arts. I’m excited to connect with you to bring your vision to life in vibrant and embodied ways, holding the fierce belief that everyone is deeply creative!

Liza Wallman (she/her)

I’m Liza, a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Toronto. Currently, I’m focused on a crochet project in which I encase granny squares in resin and connect them with hardware to make the most uncomfortable blanket in the world. My days are filled with making art, teaching workshops, and exploring creativity. I’m a Gemini sun, Scorpio moon, Scorpio rising aka it is TUMULTUOUS in my brain and I love to get deep. I am inspired by being in nature and soulfully connecting with people – I cannot wait for our retreat.

CaitlinJeffery Bio Photo-28

Caitlin Jeffery (she/her)

I’m Caitlin, an artist that uses dried flowers as a way to symbolize the cyclical nature of life and death. I take fresh flowers, naturally dry them and create illustrations that I then frame. Currently I am focused on preserving bereavement flowers to support folks as they move through grief. In addition to that I am creating a body of work that highlights death rituals across cultures through history.
