About me

vanessa's journey

Meet Vanessa

Welcome to my website. I created ‘The Art of You’ for women who are ready to answer their creative calling and discover their story of greatness. My work is Shamanic in nature – healing, heart-centred, spirit-led and creative. Here, you can find information about the work I do.


As a Life Artist, I help women discover their innate wisdom and express it.
They create a vision of themselves that they love and bring more meaning and beauty to their lives.

I am based in Devon, England. Although, I travel frequently throughout the UK and India facilitating workshops, courses, and retreats helping both women and men to create their Art in life – see the choices available to them, shape how they want to fit in the world, and keep their magic alive.


How I can serve you? I can help you to discover your ART.


Answer your calling. Align with your soul and discover your gifts.
Recover from life’s ‘Alchemy Moments’ – life-changing events, such as illness, or divorce, which leave you at life’s crossroads with no direction.
Transform your way of seeing to discover your potential. Express your authentic truth, and raise your energy vibration in the process.


You can work with me in a variety of ways – all of them are designed to help you to rise and shine!

Walk Your Talk Retreats, workshops and courses


My retreats and workshops have become a launch-pad to loving your life and yourself. They offer you a variety of creative ways to reconnect with your power, recreate your life, and uncover your potential.

The Alchemy for Life and Creatively Conscious programmes and guidebooks distil practical principles from my experiences and combine ancient spiritual practices with contemporary psychological techniques to enable you to live a heart-centred and beautiful life.

Alchemy Healing

Alchemy Healing is sunshine for your soul. My Alchemy Medicine Sessions assimilate my skills as a Shamanic Practitioner, Reiki Master, Crystal healer, Hypnotherapist & NLP Practitioner. I will work together with you and my medicine palette to blend a personalised healing session for you. This may include: soul retrieval, energy work, guided visualisations, talk therapy, Inner child work, breath work, crystals, angel therapy- depending on your needs.


My flagship book The Art of You: A Guide to Shaping Your Unique Place in the Beautiful Mosaic of Life invites you to answer your call; it presents the perception-shifting vision that both you and your life are creative acts and shows you how to see the exquisite masterpiece you came here to be.
