In recent years, art has taken on a different meaning for me, a deeper dimension, through my own transformative path. My future artistic projects will build on this.
Thanks to the art of felting, to which I have devoted myself passionately for years, I was able to immerse myself more and more deeply in the feeling and power of transformation. I began researching the surface (2D), experimented further with surfaces towards relief and the infinite possibilities of complex forms (3D) And finally in recent years I have immersed myself even deeper into dimensionality, into the transformation force by means of the felting process.
From the transformation of a material to the profound transformation via the material.
Today, for me, art is a bridge between the visible world and the invisible.
In this sense, art is a tool to accompany, stimulate and integrate transformation processes.

Felt Moments with Maria – Seeds for a new world
Graines pour un nouveau monde
In March 2020 I started heART transformation first artistic project: the online course series “Felt moments – Seeds for a new world”. The idea came in connection with the global situation caused by the coronavirus and the associated lockdown. So many people around the world found themselves isolated at home. I wondered, how can I help to nurture some positivity, lightness and community in the world?
My idea: to use the power of our own creativity and the transformative power of art to positively create new things, to anchor ourselves in positivity, to transform our fears, worries and insecurities into wonderful desires for our future earth. Felt technology has a great transformational power. From the chaos of the fibers we can create a completely new order by means of our own willpower. Symbolically, I wanted to use this to restructure and transform our interior. If we are able to create clarity, lightness and positivity within ourselves, then it becomes possible on the outside. Through our thoughts and focus, we nourish joy, lightness and positivity in us and thus also in the world. Many seeds were created, full of wonderful intentions for a new world that can grow and thrive.
Connection was created, people got to know each other who would never have come together. For many, it was a moment of joy, relaxation, and relief in this difficult time. For some, these meetings helped them to reconnect with their own creativity, with their own creativeness, because they felt blocked by these circumstances. Reconnecting ourselves with our senses helps us to feel ourselves in the moment and to act from that place, instead of just reacting to the outside. That is why artistic activity makes so much sense, especially in difficult situations. I hope to continue to inspire with this idea. Anyone who likes it can contribute to their own seed, felt, and send it out into the world as a wish.

It gives me pleasure to work with people and pass on my knowledge. For several years I have been teaching my own developed felt techniques in different countries in Europe and America. Even though I no longer lead purely technical courses, I still offer the opportunity to explore the depth and limitlessness of this technique together with me.
It makes even more sense for me today to convey this technique, as an additional enriching dimension of art and felt technique is added: the transformative power.
Are you an art therapist yourself or are you also working in the company of people and you are interested in using this transformative technique?
You are an artist and you are already working with the felt technique, but you want to get even more into your creative power, develop even more creativity?
You don’t know the felting yet, but you feel attracted by the transformative and healing quality of the technique?
Then let’s talk about it! There are different ways of learning. Whether in a kind of online coaching, in my home or at your home, alone or in a small group, everything is possible.
