About Helena Arturaleza Schotman

Helena was born in 1992 in a little village just north of Amsterdam. She has always been a creative spirit; since childhood she found her ways to express through dance, music and painting. Her artistic journey started at age 19 when she was asked to teach Art to her peers during her Media & Design education. Besides she started to receive her first commissions. As a result she skipped art school and started her life as a professional artist. With the world as her teacher she embraced life as a traveller, developed her own style and taught herself how to paint. After several years of life experience she studied with different artists at the Vienna Academy of Visionary art.

Life, colour, nature and people inspire Helena’s work. Her work is characterized by spirituality also known as Visionary art. Visionary art inspires a worldwide movement, which brings a deeper understanding of life communicated through images. See: Vision

“My heart goes wherever the art flows and my art goes wherever the heart flows”Helena

To integrate the accumulated impulses of life, it is essential for artists to keep creating. In my view being a real artist means to pursue constant improvement. It is the collaboration between the artist and the unseen forces of inspiration that keep me motivated to improve each artwork, to keep creating, to never give up.

Nature is my inspiration. The name Arturaleza is merging Arte and Naturaleza (art and nature in Spanish). This is what I wish to live and represent. The harmony yet chaos in nature is a reflection of our human experience. Nature contains the formula of life itself.

Colours fascinate me; each colour carries a different vibration and they reflect my inner world. Colour is a way to express a feeling. For example: I move through periods where I wear red, whilst at other times I wear pastel colours. The spectrum of colours is very influential in my art. ‘Painting is a way to communicate with my soul and true self’ and my soul is full of colours.

As a woman I am inspired to paint the divine feminine, symbolised by empowered women. As they represent reflections of my own life experience. These paintings have recently extended towards painting empowered humans from both sexes. I capture the motion and emotion the subject is expressing, through the body posture.

My paintings are like mirrors, reflecting insight & spiritual awakening. The visions are a reminder of how beautiful life actually is. I strive to capture the essence of nature and the essence of who we truly are. Showing mother earth in all forms, through the expressions of humanity interconnected with Nature. Poets create poetry with words. Painters create poetry with images. With my art I want to achieve: poetry communicated through images. Images with a deep spiritual message about the understanding of life. ‘My life purpose is to master the art and to inspire others to connect to their own expression. I intend to touch people and make a change on this planet.
