How I look after my mental hygiene

I have been studying watercolor monotype under the leadership of a Dutch artist living and working in Helsinki, Marie-José Dings. I have attended this course in the Adult Education Centre of the City of Helsinki (Työväenopisto, Silkkikutomo, Herttoniemi). The process of creating art has been a great form of psycho-hygiene. When I immerse into the world of colours and shapes, I start discovering my own creativity. I experience joyful surprises when work goes well, but also deal with feelings of disappointment and impatience, when things do not end up as expected. But during this whole creating process my mind can take a rest. And I feel that only with a well-rested mind I can give the space and support to clients often dealing with overwhelming emotions.

Let me please introduce you my graphic art.
