Creativity is Self-Expression and it enhances your life. Creativity cannot be separated from your spirituality, for both emanate from your very core.

Creativity is my passion, my own and the creativity of others. Professionally I express myself through writing, painting and facilitating others in connecting with their own creative energies.

But I also express my creativity through my garden, how I decorate my home, what I wear….well, actually through every aspect of my life. The creative process is sometimes melancholy, but often it is silly and playful. Mostly it is pure JOY!

From the time I was four years old I knew I wanted to be an artist. So I got my BS in Education and Business and began teaching high school while I stared exhibiting my work. I began to win a lot of awards. I started Groenemann Studios so that I could teach others privately and started a class on Creativity and Personal Growth. This grew into a book titled Through the Inner Eye.
