Born in Malta, Denise Scicluna is an art psychotherapist and abstract painter based in London.
Working regularly on her art work and exploring art making on a personal level is pivotal in Denise's profession. Her approach to art making is based on the understanding that an art work embodies the current state of being, imprinting a story on paper or canvas. Through her paintings, she visually shares stories and playfulness with the viewer.
A similar approach is used in her work as an art therapist (HCPC, BAAT registered), where her clients get to access various art materials, inviting them to express their own world creatively and playfully, within a safe therapeutic setting.
Denise is an author of two arts and crafts books called Rock Art (2015) and Pebble Pets (2018). She has also founded Malta's first contemporary crafts market in 2010 called Patches Market.
