I think his death was one of the most devastating things I’ve been going through, and for two years I was in a kind of pause. I couldn’t do it, I wasn’t able to digest that kind of grief. I just lived life and put the pain away like it wasn't there. Until after two years something happened, I started to notice that I felt so much better being around my father’s easel and his paints.
And so I finally decided I wanted to start painting and so my healing journey began.
Fast forwards, I’m still healing and probably will be forever. I love what painting does for me and what it has given me. Self worth, self love, so much growth has happened and will continue to happen.
In need of more know-how
After some time I felt I wanted to learn more, new things, new information.
I needed new challenges.
There are so many interesting things to explore, to learn, to read and to see.
Therefor I have been doing two courses last year 2020, Therapeutic Art Life Coach and Reiki Master.
It is very interesting to learn and grow and to know it helps me mentally to get stronger.
It gives me so much more knowledge which I can share when I will be guiding others. This idea of guiding others is a returning subject for me, a strong wish, you can certainly call it a dream.
I feel that this is one of the things I need to do: share, guide and inspire others.
Some time ago I gave away two free creative guiding packages and working with the two ladies who won them was amazing.
It was inspiring for them (they told me) but equally as much inspiring for me.
I am so grateful for my path so far and am feeling that this is the right way to go for me!
Finding and learning intuitive painting back in 2016, it was so different from what I knew. So far away from that usual feeling that you need to control;
the colour scheme, the materials you use and not the least the outcome.
I’m an introvert and a positivity preacher. I go after my feelings when I come into my studio. But that didn't happen over night. It took time, effort, practice and trust. Trust in yourself, you can do it, intuitive painting is for everyone, as long as you want it, it is there inside of you already!
I want you to experience what I have experienced; to heal, to grow mentally, to feel your confidence growing, daring to take steps you have never thought you could take. And all by painting uniquely like you. Like only you can!
If you would like to paint with me, let me know and we will figure out what is working best for you! Read more on my Creative Guiding page here.
