Hi, my name is Cristina.

I am a spiritually-inspired artist, with a great passion for drawing and colours, teaching and everything related to the well-being between soul, mind and body. 

I have been on a spiritual path for over 25 years. Pushed by a strong call to alleviate human suffering, I have worked, for almost two decades, in the field of human rights internationally. What I have lived and witnessed in so many countries touched me deeply, strengthening my strong sense of love and compassion for my fellow human beings.

Then, in 2021, life circumstances brought me to the decision to turn my life around. I quit my job to return to my home region of Ticino, Switzerland.

That’s when magic happened…

One day, I came across a box of coloured pencils that I had bought years before and I had barely touched. Instinctively, I took a sheet of paper and I drew a waterfall. That image symbolised everything I had just let go of and the immense potential opening up for me in the now. I felt so peaceful in putting this vision on paper that the following day I repeated the process. 

After a few more drawings, I noticed how quickly my style and technique had improved, including the art of merging colours. I was amazed at my rapid progress, especially since I had never learnt to draw! Of course, spirit was guiding me, but I was not fully aware of it yet. 

When I showed my artwork to my loved ones, they were all very impressed. They immediately noticed the beauty and harmony of the colours, as well as the effect that the drawings had on them: an immediate sense of peace and serenity and good vibes. This encouraged me to continue. After some time and an extra push from spirit, I created this website.

By sharing my Healing Art from the Heart more widely, it is my intention to touch more people in their body, heart and soul through colours. This is now one of my greatest passions and I enjoy it immensely! 

With joy,
Cristina
