The Journey of Pain-Paint Therapy
Back in the summer 2013, Mia started painting by “coincidence”. She searched for something that would make her feel less pain or otherwise help replace the pain that she had in her body, if only for a little while.
For a couple of years Mia have lived with Lyme disease (Borreliose) and have been going through treatments. She didn’t want to eat more painkillers or use any morphine plaster. Instead, she began painting!
Mia called her project: ‘The Pain-Paint Therapy’
Never before had she held an artist’s paint brush in her hand, Mia bought home what she thought was she needed to create ‘something’. And she just started!
It was an amazing feeling for her and the painting has helped Mia a long way on her path. Every summer, she carry out her easel to a sunny space and starts to paint.
It also brought her children and her closer together, to create a hobby room outside for all of their creativity. Mia's daughter Olivia (9 years old) and Mia paint together. Olivia is truly Mia's best adviser and coach. Max (7 years old) is creating colorful snail houses. They are a colorful family
