My Story

Thank you for stopping by. My name is Nina and I have worked in the creative field for many years and art has always been integral part of my life. I originally trained as a designer and still work for many publishing companies designing and illustrating book covers. I am also an avid photographer, all round creative, mum and working my way to becoming a ‘cat lady’! In addition to this I am a qualified Art Psychotherapist (M.A) I am also a member of British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and offer Life Coaching sessions.

 

My experience of being an Art Therapist has enabled me to work with adults, children and families. Offering Art Therapy for individuals impacted by -

• Trauma, Emotional and behavioral difficulties

• Struggling with life events such as bereavement; end of life; changes in family structure

• Bullying or abuse

• Children exposed to domestic violence

• Impacted by Dementia

• Displacement to Refugee status

The list is not exhaustive and anyone who may feel anxious, angry, depressed or disaffected may also benefit from
Art Therapy.

In addition to this work my studies reignited my love for intuitive art making and I have found a way to combine art and design by creating products that incorporate my art. Art making has been central to my life and

I would love to share my passion with you. In the words of Pablo Picasso...

Every child is an artist.
The problem is how to remain an
artist once we grow up

JOURNALING

One of my passions is journaling. I have several books I work in at different times and they range from A5 to A2 in size. I often find that these sketches end up on my products. As you can see, they offer a lot of inspiration!
