"No time - Can't draw - Not good Enough"
"Maybe another time..."
Do you hear yourself say those things a lot when considering picking up a pencil or buying a tube of pink paint?
WONDERFUL ARTICLE IN DR. TED ZEFF'S NEWSLETTER - ONE OF THE FOREMOST PROFESSIONALS IN THE FIELD OF RESEARCH AND INTEGRATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR HIGHLY SENSITIVE PEOPLE AND COLLEAGUE OF DR. ELAINE N. ARON.
That's tragic. Self Expression is as Vital as Food, Air and Water for a Sensitive Soul Like You.
Why do you keep art out of your life?
"I'm NOT the CREATIVE artistic TYPE. Not like those Wildly Successful Women who share their Perfectly Beautiful Art on Instagram."
"I've been told only REAL ARTIST make art. I don't want to feel the shame of yet another failed attempt..."
"My art will NEVER be GOOD ENOUGH. I can't draw. Not even a stick figure. I'm not kidding you. My Kindergarten teacher told me I had to be color blind!"
"Sometimes I sneak into an art supply store and watch the paint and those gorgeous colored pencils.
Yes, I do DREAM about creating. But HOW do I start?"
"What do I need? I'm not going to some class with CHATTERING WOMEN? They don't understand my fear and DEEP FEELINGS. I need to feel SAFE!"
Seriously! Wonderful Woman. That's why you keep the door closed for sheer joy?
WHAT'S THERE TO LOSE?
"I know all HSPs are creative, by definition.
Many have squashed their creativity because of their low self-esteem;
many more had it squashed for them, before they could ever know about. But we all have it (...).
One of the best ways to make life meaningful for an HSP is to use that creativity.”
Dr. Elaine N. Aron
ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO ...
Keep the door closed to JOY?
Create ZERO space for creativity in your life?
LIVE a life that's all in your head?
Deny yourself a MAGICAL and colorful outlet?
Live a Life without ART?
IMAGINE HOW IT WOULD FEEL TO...
PAINT that bright white flower.
Give yourself the FREEDOM to put pink stamps on blue
Fill your SKETCH book with your ART.
"Self-expression isn't about being perfect.
It's about permission - Permission to PLAY and feel HAPPY and CARE FREE."
ART ALREADY EXISTS DEEP WITHIN YOU
It's time to Set it FREE. It's time to Let in your MUSE.
You and Art are a Match Made in Heaven. Like Fresh Butter on Warm Toast.

CREATING ART WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND BEING SENSITIVE IS POWERFUL
Have you ever - in the middle of a crowded museum -
stared at a painting...
while you couldn't stop the tears?
Have you ever wondered why you're the one
who can't speak after the movie has finished?
It's because your feelings and emotions run much deeper than 70 - 80% of the population.
You are sensitive. Maybe you're an Introvert. Or a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).
It's a phenomenal trait you share with artists and creative souls all over the world. Maybe you never knew this about yourself (because you can be some what tough cookie like as well...).
You have a great imagination. A curious mind. A true problem solver. You hear the music in the silence. See the tiny details in a large painting. You're the once who can almost feel the soul of Vincent van Gogh when watching his Sunflowers. Your emotions are profound. With unprecedented depth.
You are also easily overwhelmed. You feel more. You see more, You sense more. What you hear goes directly to your heart.
You've got your work, family, your friends. A business maybe. The need to market. Show yourself.
So many expectations.
In a world filled with stimuli, your keen eye for detail and quality sets you apart. You long for silence. For depth.
You need nourishment for your soul.
YOU LONG FOR SOMETHING THAT IS REAL
I feel energized and motivated
"The assignments were simple but helped me gain some big insights – I reconnected with the playful, messy side of creativity, that I’ve been neglecting for a while. I feel energized and motivated and a lot clearer on what steps to take next.
Laurien van de Rijt
"Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art"
Leonardo da Vinci
THERE IS ONE THING THAT'S ALWAYS REAL
It's your own art. Art as an expression of who you are. Art visualizes your feelings. A reflection of your soul.
Art heals, entertaines and calms you. It soothes and energizes you. Art comes natural to you.
It feeds your heart, soul and body.
As a nourished soul you feel how powerful you really are!
However here's the thing you tell yourself...
Creating your own art is also scary. If you are sensitive you've set some pretty high standards for yourself. You fear you are NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
How can you get the MULTITUDE OF IDEAS in your head on a sheet of paper? All you can see is how flawed it will be...
I know you desire creative living. You long for BRIGHT RED. Not for Drab Grey.
More than likely you've read all the books about creativity. Maybe you've devoured every Elizabeth Gilbert post about creative living. Maybe you bought that fancy box with beautiful pencils. And they are still somewhere in your drawer. Hidden under your book that says IDEAS on the cover and a SKETCH BOOK.
Both almost perfectly... unused.
Because this is what you tell yourself...
"I'm afraid I will be another disappointment."
"Sorry, no time!"
"I don't deserve this. I have to do all the other things first."
I always give others space to do what they love. Now it's my turn
""I saw it on FB and immediately thought : " I want this!"
And wham, went back to 'being busy '.
After one I week I realized: this I always do. Not taking the time to do what I love to do while giving others ample space to do what they love . Then I immediately signed up (...) . It was lovely The freedom to be messy. Not doing something useful but be in the moment.

Esther reconnected me with myself
" Working with Esther is the best thing I did for my business in the year and a half since I started it!
Esther helped me reconnect with myself, get clarity on what I want and set a path on achieving that in a way I am comfortable with and it didn’t take long to see the results. I often finish our sessions by calling her a “miracle-doer”.
I worked with Esther for 6 months and although there was a plan I never felt rushed by a schedule. Esther was very flexible and she would adjust the session to my needs (and business).
She is incredible at tuning in to your needs, to the situation and identifying (underlying) issues I was not always aware of.
I’m forever grateful for Esther’s support.”

WHY CREATE WITH ME
Because you don't want to live a black and white life. You want the vibrant multi colored life!
I know how you feel. This course is your chance to re-align you with your super powers: Creativity, Sensitivity and Vulnerability.
Like you I'm a highly sensitive soulful woman. I've made it my job to use my 25 + years experience as a certified transformational coach, artist and art historian to bring change.
I don't want to brag, but I might as well be the Queen of Perfectionism and Fear. I was convinced art had to be wonderful, special, unique, super awesome and incredibly deep before I could even think about touching a brush. I was convinced I was not creative at all.
I quit Art School in my final year - because I would never be as amazing as the A List Artists -. I was convinced paint and brushes were strictly off limit during my 25 + years as an art historian, consultant and coach in the Big Boys and Girls Brands, Art, Design and Branding.
Until that special evening when I felt utterly lost and cried out: "What's my purpose in life?". I looked down and there was a piece of paper on my desk. Without thinking I'd doodled "Creative Fire" on it.
That evening I realized I had been in the Ice Cold Claws of Perfectionism all those years. This set me on an adventurous journey right into being an artist again.
These days I'm a Creative Soul Alchemist. I help phenomenal women from all over the world to get what they desire using their own wonderful traits.
Are you with me?
- What is It
- NOT FOR
- A course in art and creativity
- - Every Month you receive one art assignment. Focus on practicing. Not on perfect results.
- Every Month one single theme
- The course affect your art practice and helps you gain deeper understanding in yourself.
You can also work with me 1:1 for one whole year.
Limited amount of 15 spots available.
SEND ME YOUR SKYPE NAME and we discuss via Skype if this is your best option.
- A way to celebrate your gifts and enrich your life
- You learn to incorporate your traits in your daily life. Through your art practice.
I used to hide in the bathroom when I still worked in the Open Office Space of the Design Studio. I wish I had known how to empower myself.
- You are nourished with art and music and poetry. With art made by young, old, famous and completely unknown artists. And you enrich your surroundings with your own art!
- Overwhelm free learning
- Every month you learn a new art technique to play with. You also learn new ways of looking at things.
You start seeing 'objects' outside of you. Also you also see your inner objects and obstacles. That way you learn to deal with perfectionism, procrastination, the feeling of 'Not good enough'. You might recognize them as the lesser fun traits of being sensitive or HSP.
I will tell you exactly what material you need and where you can buy it. Including the cheap and expensive versions. You decide how much money you spent on your material. Don't worry. If you prefer to use your trusty pencils that's fine too.
- A community of phenomenal women
- A likeminded group of women who get you. Support and cheering on in the Facebook group. Be with women who are non-judgmental and understand how awesome and brave you are when you show your art.
Because it's exactly how they feel as well.
- Sensitive and HSP women
- If you're still reading - which I love by the way - you know this is about you.
I know, you often feel stifled in your own skin. You long to retreat from what you perceive as judgment from people. Sensitive people feel so often drained by the energies of others. But through creating we bring new meaning. And in that proces we gain self confidence and a deeper sense of wellness. The gift of being whole and complete. When you know you are good enough.
If you feel unsure whether you're sensitive or HSP go here and take the HSP test created by Elaine Aron. Don't define yourself by a score. I know many women who feel awesome in a crowded concert hall and are deeply touched by a movie or a painting. There is only one person who knows. That's you.
- Women who might create art ...someday.. somewhere... maybe..
- You haven't created since uhm... since you were 12 and your teacher accused you of making up silly stories. There's no such thing as yellow clouds! You might have bought a new sketching book. If you check your bottom drawer. It's most likely there. This is your chance to start an art practice.
You don't need to be an artist to make art!
- Sensitive and HSP women who work in the field of art and design and desire to create more or differently
- You know everything there's to know about art. But you need a new, fresh approach. You need to start looking at things with brand new eyes. More importantly, you need to feel how wonderful you are. To embrace all the possibilities inside you.
This is the course that sparks brand new fire in your creativity.
- This is NOT for you
- - When you - for whatever reason - loathe online learning.
You will not truly benefit from this course.
- When you loooooove criticizing.
Sorry, Free Your Happy Art is a safe place.
Creating your art comes from a place of deep unconditional love.
Showing art requires true bravery. It's my job to make everybody feel safe.
- If you are looking for specialized HSP therapy.
This is course is about self care. It's like going to yoga, eat good wholesome food or spend time in nature.
Creating art - in whatever form or shape it might come to you - is the best form of self-care.
- If you are a business owner
- As a hardworking entrepreneur you need to feed your creative soul. More than likely 80 % of what you do is 'because you deeply love what you're doing'. I witnessed the women I worked with (and because I experience it myself over and over) and know that creating art - transferring thought into form - greatly enhances your creativity.
New ideas come up, huge shifts are being made. You could even say it's in your own and your business best interest to start an art practice.
- If you have a job
- I know. Having (highly) sensitivity qualities and a job is not always easy. Even when you adore your job. I remember feeling deeply upset for hours when an angry CEO screamed at someone in my team. I noticed everything that went on- even when happened on a different floor. It could be very exhausting.
Creating your own art helps you gain a natural outlet for your feelings. It provides you with a deep sense of purpose.
Creating art is about you. The more you get to grips with the process of creating art (the form and colors that need to be born through you) the more you understand yourself. It's that kind of deep knowledge that helps you deal with everyday life on your workplace.
- If you desire a way to care about yourself
- Creativity and spirituality are the same. There is no difference between the two. I'm not the only one who says so. Famous author Julia Cameron of The Artists Way perceives Making Art as an authentic spiritual path as well. If you need a way to nourish your creative soul and expand your empowering art wings - yes art wings....why not - this is the course for you.
- Do I need to participate in the Facebook group?
- No you don't need to. You receive all the information and assignments by mail and can find it on the Creative Study member website. But I will be in the Facebook group every day. It's a great place to connect.
- Why is it women only?
- I made a choice to work with women a long time ago. Being in a group of women has the kind of positive energy that truly sparks creativity . Rest assure , I know there are as many sensitive and HSP men as there are women.
- Do I need to buy all the material used in the course?
- No you don't. The art practice and learning how to incorporate the Monthly theme in daily life is paramount.
But wouldn't it be great to ask a tube of pink paint for your next birthday?
