“One of my favourite quotes comes from Picasso, "Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life." The power of creativity to positively impact on people’s lives is the force that inspires me to create.”

Cassandra Gaisford is an award-winning artist, transpersonal art therapist and Reiki master who infuses her work with positive energy and light. She believes in the healing power of creativity to transform people’s lives, making them feel refreshed, playful, inspired and joyful.
