“Frogs in the trees, clover in the fields, hummingbirds at the windows. Each day at Valleyview Artist Retreat felt like a chance to relax and get back inside myself. The pond is lovely and I pushed myself to attempt a game of tennis for the first time in ages! The fireplace offers an opportunity for lovely, fragrant flames. Very relaxing. I played and wrote music and was able to get a strong start on my novel.
I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to stay in such a lovely, thoughtful place. It was a real gift. The establishment of this retreat is demonstrative of a deep generosity and genuine nurturance of the artistic spirit.”
