When I create,
I feel one with the Creator.

From my heart to yours, I'd love to share my story...

The obstacles and breakthroughs of becoming an artist, what shaped me and what moves me to create...


I have always loved to create.

My parents supported my creative expression. Writing stories and poetry, drawing and painting, playing theatre, practicing transverse flute and piano…
I found joy in many creative acts.

Yet there also was a shadow hanging over my creative childhood-self, as I found my older sister to be a much more prolific and productive artist than I was.
Her creative genius both motivated and disheartened me.
I was struggling to find my voice besides the powerful personality she was, but it made me strive to become a better artist.

Navigating the Valley of Tears

A lot changed in me when I discovered the profound and healing power of what I now call “Soul Painting”.
At first, the death of my father didn’t affect me so deeply. However it was when I moved to Vienna to study that I started to feel the loss. It inscribed itself on my heart as a deep wound. I felt profoundly sad and lost, yet I couldn’t cry the tears that I felt within me.
Until I made an amazing discovery…

Art had always been part of my life, but now it became a life saver.

It was a valve through which I accessed, healed and transformed my emotions. It helped me retrieve parts of my soul that were lost.

Art became my magic wand, my guiding star.

Intuitive painting taught me that art doesn’t have to always be pretty.

It can be raw, vulnerable, ugly. Yet it has power. And that is what matters.

I started to paint my inner landscapes, which were full of cemetaries, sceletons and lost creatures. To see them on paper gave me relief. They were no longer trapped in me, but I could see them, communicate with them.

The initiation into death brought with it the joys of rebirth and a deepening into spiritual life. Later I realized that there is an actual training called Art Therapy and I knew that was for me.


What changed my life forever was the participation in the “Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminar”. During this 3-week long painting retreat in a little paradise in Northern Italy, I not only learnt the beautiful painting technique that I use to this day, but also made deep and meaningful connections to artists who became close friends and mentors.

Soon after the seminar which I visited both in 2011 and 2012, “The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art” was born as a more permanent space to learn the craft of painting.
I’m grateful to have been part of this magical space and was invited to teach as soon as it had opened it’s doors.
All these experiences really grew my soul. It was the beginning of a magical journey: a life full of painting, inspiring friendships, creative freedom, and guiding wonderful workshops.



Creating harmonious spaces to explore the creative self is one of the biggest joys in my life.

Since then, painting brought me to many inspiring places: teaching art workshops in Byron Bay | Australia, at Anam Cara in Belgium, in Brighton | England… In 2017, I also returned as a teacher to the place in Italy where I had first studied.
Inspiring individuals became my friends and mentors on the creative path.

In 2020 I started to organise my own art retreats in Austria. Holding retreats has become a great source of joy for me. They are a space of flourishing authenticity and spontaneity, for true connection and deep soul healing. A space for the inner artist to explore, connect, share and shine.
