Colours have inspired and accompanied me for many years on my way to artistic creation and therapeutic painting.
It is the joy, the power of colour, their vitality, their individuality, the vibrancy, it exudes ... when painting, colour takes the space it needs, seeks the closeness to other colours, transforms them and transcends itself ...
As a part of my artistic process, 7 years ago I opened my small Atelier in Barão São João, to open and create space to develop my own artistic potential as well as to give other people the opportunity to discover and express their creative potential.
I find it very delightful to accompany other people on the way to their creative sources, or to strengthen vitality and to balance life crises with the healing painting work.
There are several artistic offerings in the Atelier:
Suitable for beginners and advanced, women and men who are looking for artistic inspiration and want to develop their own creative process.
In addition, a small group forms ideal conditions for this development.
It is my intention to create the experience of painting and colours as a source of energy, a transformative power for inner growth.
Through the exercises with colours and shapes, the forces of the Self can be harmonized and the potential of the self-healing force is stimulated. In the artistic work, one's own Self becomes vivid and leads through the art-therapeutic to deeper understanding and self-recognition.
Individual or group sessions for different ages, can also be theme-oriented.
In a small group, people of the 70 + generation - are invited to discover and express colours freely or with artistic guidance. Through the process of painting, creating the world in the motif, it awakens to something new.
Thus people experience an inner vitalization and a new orientation. Colour enters into life and acts in a healthy and beneficial way.

Dyeing with plants give us a completely different colour quality.
Plants are created by sunlight and radiate harmony and beauty out of themselves. What secrets nature reveals! When dyeing with plants on materials, wool or papers, we experience a true rush of colour.
