Fine art​ ​

 

Fine art has always been a huge part of my everyday life. Since 2015 I have been developing my personal and academic skills in the Saint-Lucas Academy of Fine Arts. ​

 

I deliberately push myself to experiment and create meaningful artworks that carry out emotions and expression. I am especially drawn to the creative freedom of abstract art. Each and every work carries its own story and invites you to feel something. You can read about each one of my artworks here. ​

 

I do work on commission for personalised artworks.

 

Feel free to contact me and we will look into it together. ​ ​

Yoga

 

Yoga, to me, serves a similar purpose as creating art: balancing the mind and spirit.  ​

 

A couple of years ago I discovered the power of yoga and it has been a big part of my everyday life ever since. Not only does yoga give me physical satisfaction, it also helps me with achieving emotional and mental balance. Even more than a part of my everyday routine, yoga became a lifestyle for me.

 

Everyday I try to be present in the moment, to live my life consciously and to listen to myself and my own needs. ​

 

Besides my weekly yoga classes that I teach, I also organise workshops and master classes in meditation and yoga. ​
