Annelies has been inspiring people for nearly 30 years. She's led Art in the Garden since 2013!

Annelies M Gentile, MA, PCC is an Integrative Life and Leadership Coach, Speaker, Author and Artist with a Masters in Coaching and a knack for poking in a good way. She gently calls you “back to center” as she facilitates inspiring retreats, presents for conferences, wields artful tools for perspective, insight, well-being and coaches you through change.

From chaos to calm, Broadway to blacksmithing, divorce, death and Dubai, Annelies is no stranger to change— making her great at helping YOU embrace life’s wild and wooly edges with gratitude.

As an artist, Annelies asks us to see life differently. Her most recent creations are wildly interactive paintings that pierce the veil and stir the senses. Rightfully called the Fractal Touchable Series, these paintings break the rule of “don’t touch”, inviting you to get involved—tear canvas from frame, touch tactile surfaces, scratch and sniff, and take art into the dark to see life illuminated.

Annelies believes creativity changes everything. From visual fine arts and sculpture to expressive arts and positive psychology; she’s created with metal, photography, plaster, paint, resin, fabric, hair, make-up, and words. Her book is available on Kindle and audiobook: From Chaos to Calm :: Leading Change From the Inside Out.

She's most happy seaside, paddle boarding or hanging in a hammock alongside her musical sweetheart Greg Whitt of Drum for Change.
