Art making, education and emotional processing, which are the central pillars of art educational therapy, have kept my body and soul together and given me tools to learn and share my knowledge about whatever my heart desires. Coursework learning was sometimes challenging for me as a child. As time passed by I developed faith in myself, as I realised that I could easily learn anything that I was interested in. I sought a variety of ways to reach that goal. This search, my studies and research, and the children who I have helped in terms of both their learning and well-being, have laid the foundations for the methods that art educational therapy offers. I have a PhD in art therapy and I have introduced my research internationally in lectures, published journals and books within my professional field.
