Born in Malta, Denise Scicluna is an art psychotherapist and abstract painter based in London.
The focus on her art making process is on self expression and personal growth, rather than the developing a skill or master in art. Through her paintings Denise visually shares stories and playfulness with the viewer.
A similar approach is used in her work as an art therapist where clients get to access various art materials, inviting them to express their own world creatively and playfully, within a safe therapeutic setting.
Denise has a Masters degree in Art Psychotherapy and a Bachelors degree in Psychology. She is registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT). She clinically supervises other professionals in the field too.
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.
