Reviews:

“Kerstin Peters’s workshops have helped me to become very creative.  Kerstin is a multi-talented artist who loves art and people.   In my case, she helped me see my potential, become more confident and daring as I learned and experimented.  That is an amazing gift!  Expressing myself through art (painting, collage, felting, mixed media) and enjoying art generally now enriches my daily life.”
Francine C. (young retiree)
