Hello there!


You may know me as the author of a single aphorism.  Perhaps the one showing below.  I've been writing to make sense of my world since I was a child.  Perhaps you are fortunate enough to be engaged, daily, in work you love?  I am.  I am grateful that every day for the last 31 years I've pursued my craft and calling through writing and art.  I  continue to push the edges of what creativity looks like and means to me and I document those explorations in a variety of ways and articulate the results in a diverse offering of service and product.  Enjoy your look around here, please, and write me.

Perhaps we'll work together.

Private Creative Retreats by Mary Anne Radmacher
Whidbey Island, Washington

Imagine sitting with Mary Anne Radmacher, writer, artist, and personal development expert, in her private studio on Whidbey Island, Washington. Her only wish is to share her years of experience to teach you what you desire to learn.

Mary Anne has spent the last thirty-two years authoring 11 books, creating magnificent art, often partnered with her inspirational words and famous quotes. During that time, she developed unique processes around art, writing, and personal development that she teaches in one-to-one Private Creative Retreats on Whidbey Island, Washington.

As a result of working with Mary Anne, clients have found their true voice, developed significant writing practices, written books, discovered their inner artist, become workshop leaders/facilitators, public speakers, and so much more.

"I have not only experienced the magic of working one-on-one with Mary Anne Radmacher myself, but have also seen and felt the impact her creative coaching work has on the lives of so many others--it is an unfolding of the highest magnitude.” Patti Digh, Author & Social Justice Activist

Mary Anne’s studio, the Apron-Aerie, has a large art space where you will have access to her fabulous materials. The Apron-Aerie also has welcoming living area, a fully appointed kitchen with a shared common area,  private sleeping spaces, private writing room/library and a breath-taking view of Holmes Harbor. It will be your home away from home while you are there.

This is your chance to learn new art skills, flex your writing muscles, or do some deep personal work. Mary Anne is skilled at creating a retreat that’s right for you. Your retreat includes one-to-one creative mentoring time with Mary Anne, plenty of private time to practice and anchor your new skills, and free time to relax and explore beautiful Whidbey Island.
 
Mary Anne creates the perfect space to learn and then hone your skills in the quiet of her beautiful studio. Learn, then try, get feedback, and try again. Using this model, I found myself miles ahead of anything I had done before.” Pam Matchie Thiede

"Mary Anne’s generosity with what she knows creates a unique learning experience that is not only cognitive, but also fardeeper. She sees beneath the surface to the patterns of our lives and lays bare not only our deepest longings, but also our greatest capabilities. It is the stuff that allows us to know we've reached the root of our creative spirit; it is the stuff that changes lives."  Patti Digh, author

And from a State Systems Analyst, Julie Griffin:

"Only visit Mary Anne if you want to make an exceptional leap towards your goals, better insight, or simply having a good life. She is directly responsible for substantially increasing my income, creating a work/life balance, and helping me define my purpose.  Her questions challenge my self-imposed beliefs and open a wider world of possibilities.  We develop a plan with specific action items.  Every conversation with MaryAnne enriches my life. An  Apron Aerie retreat is an amazing investment in yourself to design your future."  Julie Griffin

"I cannot recommend this experience with Mary Anne Radmacher enough. I attended one of her retreats and have been able to creatively and personally move forward in ways I would have never anticipated. I have put myself and my art and my words out into the world with a renewed sense of purpose and self. Please grant yourself the gift of this experience."  Peg Ashman, artist, animal communicator

From picking berries and green beans in grade school, to the part-time jobs I held during school and then, as a young adult,  I worked hard for others,  I began working for myself a few years before I was thirty.  And I've earned my way ever since by my words and art.  I've penned thousands of aphorisms and  poems...perhaps my most famous is,
   courage doesn't always roar.     sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
           "i will try again tomorrow."

I   teach on line courses, offer custom creative retreats, delivery compelling keynotes and consult one to one by phone.

How might I be able to go to work on your behalf?
