I have always been passionate about the healing power of the arts, whether through painting, drawing, handicrafts, dance, theatre, movement, or writing. Making things (or even just marks on paper) has given me comfort, strength and inspiration through deeply stressful and painful experiences. The support I have felt from art is a gift I am honoured to introduce to others. Everyone has something of value to share, from their unique experiences and perspectives. No previous art exposure is needed, only a willingness to play with different materials, explore how you feel, and express what you wish. Through art making, we can safely and gently process experiences and challenges, uncover strengths, and create and work towards goals together. I am a self-taught visual artist and advertising practitioner with 20+ years of experience in various countries. In my corporate life, I mentored young college graduates and worked with stressed office employees. I have also been a volunteer and certified yoga teacher with organizations helping domestic workers and sex workers. Now based in London in the United Kingdom, I am an art psychotherapy student at the Canadian International Institute of Art Therapy. I am looking forward to accompanying you on your personal art discovery journey.
