Meet Ulrike Streifler
I am an artist, a devoted creative, and I have used my gift not only to transform my own world, but the world around me. My art is a language, spoken in energy, vitality and healing. My focus has been to create a business that honours the work, and is used as a platform to help make the world a better place, by supporting charities close to my heart.
While I am painting, I feel more and more that this is a calling for me that I hadn’t allowed myself to do before. The more I paint, the more courageous I become. I find my way to the peace that lives inside myself, without being distracted by external influences and thoughts. I feel a deep joy when I forget space and time, and find myself in flow. There is a trust, letting go and surrender to the image that wants to be created on the canvas. I have a deep gratitude for this creative process.
Our story begins rooted in a three-decade friendship. We are two passionate women who have been blessed to discover our purpose and to use it to create change. We started Art4Change to share our creativity but most importantly, to make a difference.
We have committed our talents, energy and skills to this business so that it can be a success for artists using the platform, and to generate revenue for charities. Supporting charities that help to ensure that women and children are able to live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives. These charities focus on giving them access to fundamental basic needs such as water and healthcare, to allow them to overcome obstacles and be able to live the life they deserve.
