I am a self-employed ceramic artist and wellbeing life coach living in Findhorn, Morayshire. I found my passion for clay coincidentally whilst attending a 3-months-long arts programme in Findhorn, Scotland in 1995. Originally trained as a photographer and social worker, the discovery of a passion for working with clay initiated a big life and career change and subsequently my move from Germany to the Findhorn Community in 1996 where I still live. My passion for clay turned into working professionally as a ceramic artist in my own studio. I also have a passion for singing Georgian polyphony, walks in nature with my golden retriever lady, dips in the sea and finding creative ways to make lifes' tricky bits easier.

Transformartional path

Creativity has changed my life. But what is 'creativity'? A gateway to the simplicity of THIS moment that takes us to a deeper, quieter place of wellbeing. It is not only enjoyable but can give a tangible sense of connection which I experienced as profoundly healing. These qualities (that I experienced in depth through clay and through singing) helped me deal with challenging times, like deaths of loved ones and gave me a heartfelt language where words often fail.
