“As a child I wanted to stay home to draw, paint, write stories and create. As an adult, I’m blessed to be able to do that every day!” — Laila Savolainen
Laila’s days and dreams are filled with magic. Angels, spirits and beings from the Inbetween inspire her to create art that is intuitive, open-hearted, and full of grace.
On her journey, she has been a student and teacher of art therapy and counselling, energy healing, shamanic works, and oracle readings. In her 30 years as a creative, Laila has worked behind the scenes of Australia’s theatre industry; and run her own business, sculpting and painting for commercial clients. She also lectured at the Centre for Performing Arts, where she discovered her love for teaching and inspiring others to follow their soul passions.
Laila’s work has appeared in journals, books, oracle decks, and more. Her paintings and drawings have been exhibited in galleries around the world and she has entered and won several prestigious art prizes, including the Portia Geach Portrait Prize, People’s Choice Award.
Laila continues to straddle the corporeal world and the magical in-between in her art. Every breath she takes and every choice she makes carries the seeds of creation.
