Have an iPad?? Try digital painting!!
- Personally, I LOVE drawing on my iPad and highly suggest exploring this if you're into digital media. It's portable, non-polluting and super easy! Give digital painting a try! You'll need to download a drawing or painting application before you show up. I use a free app called Bamboo Paper. I suggest this app, as it's really easy to use. A stylus brush, if you prefer (I got my Sensu brush from Jerry's Artarama and love it!)
About Annelies, the Artist
Annelies has been inspiring people through creativity for over 25 years and considers herself a Process Artist. Her education includes master's degree in coaching, graduate studies in transformative leadership, conflict resolution/peacebuilding, creative process and around-the-world learning from traveling to most US states and 22 countries and counting!
Talents abound, she's worked with varied mediums from copper to photography, to plaster and paint, and to hair and make-up on Broadway. Her art is as dynamic and inspiring as Annelies herself and has been featured in multiple gallery shows and businesses including the Fearrington Village, Visual Art Exchange, Bickett Gallery, Neomonde, Tasca Brava and the UAE Embassy. Her most recent painting series, called Fractal Touchables, is only painted live and when dry, is used to help her clients (professionals, businesses & non-profits) to problem-solve from a creative perspective.
Today her art is more about helping people process life verses creating a product. Annelies is an ICF certified leadership coach, consultant, facilitator, visionary artist and CEO of Conduit for Change LLC. Her art has evolved as she has throughout the years. Feel free to view her creative breadth HERE. She lives in Raleigh with her sweetie Greg Whitt. Her favorite daily medicine is nature and her secret-sauce to success is compassion.
