Hello, I’m Christine DeJuliis and since early childhood, I have turned to various forms of creativity for self-expression and reflection. Through creative play I have been able to connect to the deepest most authentic aspects of who I am. Although my most intimate poetry and art-making were kept private for most of my life, my creativity continued to provide refuge from uncertainty and confusion. Although life presented its challenges, I had an inner-knowing that expression through creativity and art could heal me, so I continued to write and make art when and where I was able.
Expressive art is simply part of who I am. No matter what tried to silence my expression from coming through, it kept rising to the surface wanting to be seen and heard. In fact, creativity would help save my life.
The Importance of Art
It is only fitting that expressive art has been the catalyst for my most recent personal and spiritual growth. It is this growth that has led me to focus my energy entirely on creativity and a newly chosen path in life. If you are someone interested in the transformative power of self-expression through creativity and art I am eager to connect with you. If you are curious about your creative side and finding the authentic creative voice within, you will benefit from my experience and desire to help others.
I am a self taught artist, author, poet and expressive arts advocate and facilitator and it gives me great joy to serve others through sharing the awesome power of creativity and its many benefits.
I am currently busy developing ‘Art Without End’ which creates opportunities for the use of visual art as well as written and spoken word as a way of opening to the deeper dimensions of life and a universal need for self expression. A.W.E. promotes creativity as a tool for healing and wellness with value placed on creative play, spontaneity, mindfulness and nurturing one’s spirit.
Art Without End is founded on the belief in the artist in each of us and the positive power of every person’s creativity. I am committed to the practice, education, advocacy and expansion of the Expressive Arts in the local community and beyond. I offer opportunities for creative expression to diverse people of all ages and life circumstances, fostering well-being, community building and positive social and global change.
I thoroughly believe in the capacity of creativity, the strength of the human spirit and the potential of each individual to live a life of meaning. It is an honor to be of service and to witness people participate in the creative process and shine like they do!
Here to Serve
If you are a healer or seeking to heal, if you seek spiritual renewal and inner peace, if you are an artist or non-artist feeling a call for greater connection to your soul and life-purpose, I am dedicated to serving you. I believe that creative ability resides within each of us and that small steps and practice can lead to great self-discovery and even world-change.
Expressive art made in a safe and loving environment can transcend learned beliefs, habits and circumstances to bring your unique magnificent expression into the world. This belief supports my life’s work and is the foundation of my mission to address individual and societal needs by incorporating feeling, intuition, imagination and creative thinking into daily life. My own experience of personal transformation and vision of “a better world through art” are at the heart of my desire to make a difference in the lives of others.
Creativity Coaching Training
Sometime during 2003 I happened upon an outstanding online creative company called ArtellaLand. For quite a few years I followed the happenings and creative community that is Artella, sharing in the wisdom of its founder Marney Makridakis and the vast array of inspiration that makes this company stand out.
In later years and especially as my life path steered me full throttle in the direction of my creative passions and pursuits, I decided to take the plunge and apply for Artella's ARTbundance Creativity Coaching Training program.
Happily, I was accepted and went on to receive my ARTbundance certification.
I can't say enough good things about Marney and ArtellaLand and ecnourage you to

The Power of Images and Inquiry
The foundation for my expressive art collage workshop was developed about 16 years ago and has evolved through practice and play into its present day form.
In 2003 about the same time I discovered ArtellaLand, I came across SoulCollage(R) and was amazed at the similarities between the process developed by its creator Seena Frost and my own process presented as Images Within:Collage for Self-Discovery.
I respect Seena's great vision and the community of SoulCollage(R) facilitators that has grown from her desire to help others through the power of images and inquiry. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to become a SoulCollage(R) Facilitator in October of 2010. I am honored to count myself among the SoulCollage(R) facilitators helping to heal through personal art-making.
Attending the facilitator training strengthened my belief in the power of self-exploration, discovery and transformation through creativity. It also helped to clarify the similarities and differences between the SoulCollage(R) process and my own.
In my heart I believe that both processes came into the world through love and I fully support the benefits of SoulCollage(R). I find our processes to be closely related and complimentary in what they offer participants and my own process has benefited from becoming involved in the SoulCollage(R) community.
Images Within:Collage for Self-Discovery has also been postively influenced by the work of
and insights as presented in her book Sacred Contracts.
I consider both Seena and Caroline my mentors from afar and would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for their wisdom.
