Founder, Amelia Critchlow, followed the traditional route of finishing school and heading off to University, and graduated with both a BA Honours Degree and mother to a gorgeous small daughter too!
Here began the real university – the university of life, where the challenging reality of working, juggling parenthood and one’s passions and desires became the ultimate goal. Raising children alone and acting as both breadwinner and two parents meant a creative approach to life was needed as well as a desire to honour a life-long passion to do art. Working part time and going back to university to study Fine Art, Amelia graduated with a BA Honours in Fine Art & Design in 2007 and an MA in Fine Art in 2012.
After obtaining a City & Guilds Teaching Qualification in Art and teaching regularly, Amelia funded her way through her MA by devising and running an online Art Courses (the Experimental Art E-Course) whilst parenting her - now 2 - children, and learnt the vital importance of needing time to ‘be’ oneself, to honour desires and passions whilst simultaneously managing health and work – ultimately no dream is manageable without the wealth that is health.
During her MA in Fine Art health issues raised their head which meant a radical re-assessment of diet, lifestyle and attitude. A visit to a Naturopath, and training in Neal’s Yard Remedies Organics started the next part of the wellness journey and living a fully organic existence (wherever possible), which led on to training in Theta Healing, and currently Soul Re-alignment and Coaching. This has been totally life changing and the next ‘building block’ in a journey to ultimate wellness that embraces inner peace, fulfillment and tranquility in amongst this crazy experience we call life.
Amelia lives in London with her soulmate of 12 years (yes, dream soulmates do exist!) and her son. Her eldest child (daughter) is fulfilling her own dreams as a represented artist here in the UK.
Now it’s your turn to utilise your creativity, uncover your desires and heal whatever prevents you from living a dream life in fulfilment, health and joy ☺
