"Never having had any guidance at all myself in the art techniques of drawing, painting and creating, I learnt how to master skills, fumbling through the hard & long way. There is no need now for you to go through that! My gift is having the ability to transfer what I know & guide you, the easy way, to be able to achieve your highest artistic potential. I believe in giving art lessons that are (really) interesting, relaxing, enjoyable & fun. In widening your perspectives about life through art, for all of us to grow in all ways to be the best human that we can be on this earth. To be able to see and appreciate the beauty of this life, which in fact is really just one big piece of artwork, a magical creation. Hence the birth of The Visionary ART Workshop.
Welcome ~ to my 'Wonderverse'!"

Working with students who require extra support in life due to low self-confidence, anxiety, autism, ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia and so on. Guiding clients on how to transform depression and stress to relaxation, inner peace and well being.
She has also been teaching creativity using multiple intelligences curriculum to children ages 3 to 6 weekly for the past 13 years in two kindergartens.

Dipa was nominated by Dr Semir Osmanagich to be an advisory member for the non-profit Bosnian Pyramid's Foundation's International team. Dr Osmanagich is the discoverer of the current largest pyramid in the world, who also runs the largest active excavation site in the world.
A highly dedicated, versatile, gifted art educator and guide, Dipa encourages multi-medium ways of art making and experimentation. Her methodology goes far deeper than just teaching the techniques of art, it is to guide students to re-learn, re-see and be conscious to the wondrous world through the keys of the human senses, to re-discover a new world from the old.
So students may take with them, not only excellent drawing or painting skills but have the ability to contribute & problem solve creatively at work or at home. Giving themselves a space, through art, to find their inner happiness and peace, to create a more conscious world.
Since having dedicated the bulk of her time guiding and sharing with students, she is currently taking more time for herself to pursue her personal art journey which has developed and transformed along with her life journey.
Her art takes viewers gently to a beautifully mystifying multi-dimensional world of the soul & spirit that transcends time, space & verbal language.
