Everything has to be first imagined before it can manifest into form. But no form is ever permanent, everything is in motion all the time.
This is where I come in as either an artist or energy healer.
As an artist, I try to capture a moment in time, interpret it based on my view and previous experiences, and make it visible through my artistic ability. Other times I use my imagination to visually tell a story, or engage your imagination through my art.
As an energy healer, I know that energy has to be in flow so that we experience ease. If however energy flow becomes blocked, we experience struggle, dis-ease trauma and pain. Let me help you to get back into the flow.
I’m Antje - a fine artist - writer - and energy healer.
At home in nature and ‘tantalized’ by colours since childhood, I’ve been creating all my life. I studied at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg, Germany, and in addition, trained with a traditional oil painter, apprenticed with a stone sculptor and worked with a stage designer. I have exhibited and sold my artwork in galleries and local, national and international art shows where some of my works received awards. With over 20 years of experience in instructing art classes for all ages - from children to the young at heart - I believe that in an environment of respect and encouragement, everyone becomes creative.
Initially known and commissioned for my pastoral landscapes and whimsical portraits of children and animals in traditional oil, I more recently went on to experimenting with mixed media, e.g. ink, charcoal and recycled materials or handmade paper. I see myself as a life-long learner, observing the world around me while trying to make sense of it through art. My curiosity in my subject matter and my desire to capture a moment in time, guide me when I apply my knowledge of traditional art techniques with improved methods and sometimes unorthodox practices. To me the process of art making is just as important as the finished product, which I hope the art collector will enjoy as much as I enjoy creating it.
My interest in energies came as an after-effect of my near-death experience when in the summer of 2000, I gave birth to my daughter Emily and shortly after, “died” due to an eclampsia. I experienced the struggles of dying and the indescribable beauty and bliss afterward in Heaven. Though granted to stay in Heaven, I reluctantly decided to return into my body when offered the choice to be with my infant daughter, but I regretted my decision almost instantly when I realized that due to my health I couldn’t even care for my baby’s basic needs at the time.
Humbled by my experience, I returned to the art world, but soon learned that I occasionally interfered with tv, computer and radio frequencies, among others. I could also tune in to people’s emotions and symptoms of pain and disease, or simply feel the energy in my surroundings. At first, I found this ability irritating, but with time I understood it to be a gift and learned to make use of it to help and heal.
Growing up in a household where herbs, spices and fragrances played an important role, I was naturally guided to study herbs and subsequently, added energy medicine, biofield tuning, and elemental space clearing studies to my curriculum to better understand the healing powers of nature and of energy and their effects on the human body. I bring this knowledge not only into my healing practice, but also into my art making and teaching. For many years I’ve been working successfully as both a space clearer and intuitive energy healer, bringing healing qualities into bodies and environments. I found even animals respond to me with trust and keen interest in my work.
Since I can communicate on a soul level, I have also accompanied people through their peaceful transition at the end of their lives. Physicians are surprisingly open to my work and respect my presence and ‘interference’ even in hospital settings.
If you have questions regarding my artwork, classes or energy work, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from.
Thank you for your interest.
May the light of God touch you & bless you!
