Meet the Instructors
Although Ania's art and creative expression take form in a variety of different mediums, painting and public speaking have become the primary focus of her work. Whether she is using words or paint, her intention is to illustrate her perception of the connection between the energy we project through our thoughts, words, and feelings, and the physical realities we experience. Each painting is a new opportunity to bring this message to life, and she invites the universe to guide her in the content and delivery. It is through her personal example and artistic expression that she intends to inspire others to claim the power of their focus, and engage in the powerful practice of deliberate creation.
In 2016, She met and studied painting with world-famous visionary painters Alex and Allyson Grey. In 2018 at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art, she studied classical oil techniques and figure painting with Oleg Korolov and studied acrylics with Autumn Skye Morrison.

Caren originally grew up in Germany, where her fascination with nature, art, & people began.
She later moved to the US and landed in Indiana, where she furthered her education at IU Bloomington, receiving her Bachelor of Arts & Psychology degrees. After being released from the confines of traditional art education, the real fun began & she continued to explore her own 'Flowedelic' style. Her interests in human consciousness, creative expression, and community building drew her towards the Visionary Art world, and also synchronistically led her to a 6 year artist residency at CoSM (Chapel of Sacred Mirrors) in upstate NY. After a long chapter of building her passion for painting, body painting, weaving with other artists, and organizing events, she spread her wings to the west coast. Now based in Los Angeles, Caren is focused on her art path full time and incorporates body paint adornment as her favorite service/offering to the world.
