Train your creativity muscle, find inspiration and connect with yourself

Hi, I’m Lydia,

Artist, teacher and convinced that EVERYBODY is a creator.

I help soul driven people train their creativity muscles and finding inspiration more easily:

  • Inspiration for writing that new facebook post or creating the next instagram visual.

  • Inspiration for finally switching careers;

  • Inspiration for finding another approach for a difficult project;

  • Inspiration when deciding on the placing of your kitchen in your new home;

  • Inspiration when your 4 year old has a tantrum in the middle of the supermarket…

Creativity and inspiration are simply muscles you need to train. Just as you train your focus and equanimity with (mindfulness) meditation, you can train your creativity and inspiration with actually creating things with your hands.

 
“When I look at my painting, my very first with oils, I feel such   deep, inner joy  . The light and power radiating form it are also new guides on my path. I feel so much   gratitude for the proces   Lydia has shown me.”   - Kristin

“For me it helps me face what I feel and how that affects what I do, and that helps me   understand myself   and how I work so I can then make choices and find things that work for me to get things done, sort of like learning   my own operating system   instead of fighting against myself all the time.”   - Elise

“In the beginning I felt very hesitant to draw.    I always hated art    at school. But now I feel I’ve    opened up    as a person. I could feel my emotions flow during the drawing assignment.”   - Ilse

When I’m connected with life, I’m inspired.
When I’m inspired, I’m connected with myself.
When I’m connected with myself, I create.
When I create, I am connected with life.

The landscapes of life method

Finding inspiration isn’t a linear proces. It’s a circle, without a start and an end. Meaning you can hop in on different places. Giving you more than one pathway to try out when you are stuck. There will always be one route that’s open and clear, you just have to train yourself in seeing the different gateways.

Once you know how connection, inspiration and creation work together you can determine all your pathways and time step into this circle any given time, open up your ‘artist eyes’ and find inspiration and creation when you need it.

Find your artist eyes

As an artist I’ve developed a thing I call ‘my artist eyes’. I can open them at any moment I want, making me see the world around me with different eyes. I don’t see a ‘tree’ anymore, but shapes, colours, patterns and much, much more.

This set of artist eyes isn’t only useful for when I want to draw or paint something. I can use the exact way of looking at things for situations and problems. Using my artist eyes to find inspiration and think out of the box when I am stuck.

During painting and drawing I am also constantly solving problems, intuitively but consistently. Creating things with your hands gives you instant feedback about yourself and beholds you to stay focused on the process. You have to be in the moment, period.

That’s why I help you training your creativity through ‘art’, through creating things with your hands. The end goal is not for you to be the next Monet or Rembrandt, although I can help everybody create something beautiful. Making art is just a tool in seeing the world through artist eyes and use them for your own advantage.
