I grew up wearing comforting warm and soft clothes that my grandmother knitted with her soft golden hands. She expressed love in everything she touched: from cooking to sewing, knitting and crocheting, to taking care of her grandchildren, to taking care of her home. I was lucky to grow up with her and share the love for making from a young age.
Sewing and crocheting were my favourite activities in my childhood and teenage years. I used to crochet my own scarves and jumpers as a teenager and nothing felt more rewarding than wearing something that carried so much of my own personal energy.
It was, however, a moment in my life when I felt so much engaged in the rat's race, focused exclusively on my career when I lost this gift.
In 2007 I rediscovered my passion for making and I started to make jewellery with crystals, especially in wire-wrapping technique which gave me a lot of freedom to improvise and experiment.
My passion for crystals was reborn, and so my aliveness, joy and the sense of flow. For another 10 years my source of energy and joy, my sense of freedom and purpose was given by the creative flow I experienced in my late nights of creativity. In January 2017 I created The Blissful Art and started to run creative workshops in London.
At the same period of time, I reached the top of my career burning-out after just a year.
Having no choice but to leave the toxic environment and recover my health, I continued to run workshops, create and experience other healing modalities. I learned to draw mandalas for self-expression, which gave me a lot of insights. I found not only the drawing itself very calming, but I discovered hidden messages of my unconscious mind coming to light.
I embraced mindfulness, learning to connect more to my senses and my intuition and I started to have a regular meditation practice. This brought me a sense of peace, calm and trust I never thought it was possible. I met wonderful people along the way who inspired and sustained me and I made amazing friends.
This is how my new journey began: I qualified as a life coach, meditation teacher and colour therapist. Later I qualified in other healing modalities such as Reiki and Crystal Therapy and I still continue to explore this amazing mind-body-spirit connection. My purpose is to bring these gift to you and be a channel for your own development, if you seek more creativity, peace, healing and connection to yourself, I am here to serve you and support you.
