An Interview With…..Khalid from Khalid Paints

I first met Khalid over a year ago. When we met I knew he had something special to share with the world. I remember him showing me on his phone one of his art works and being amazed at its beauty. I feel incredibly blessed to now be working with Khalid at our Flow Connect Create events, where, alongside Leila, we share our unique practices of Shake & FlowYoga Nidra, Reconnective Healing Energy and Art Therapy.

  1. Tell us about your journey to where you are today?

I’m an artist who has a passion for painting and its ability to translate my soul on a canvas .
At some point I had an inspiration to teach others what I’ve learnt about art .
I acted on that thought which I indeed took the right trainings and certificates that helped me convey my message to the people who needs it.

  1. What inspired you to become an Artist? And to then become a Therapeutic Art Coach?

I’ve always had an artist within me since a young age . It was my go to method to express my thoughts and emotions through the medium of colors.

I was keeping the art hiding within me and practicing for myself till I thought perhaps I could help others experience how powerful art can be the way it is for me .
That motivated to find the way to utilize art as a tool to connect with others and lead them to their true essence.

  1. Tell us a little more about what you do as part of Flow Connect Create.

I help participants gain better confidence in creating art pieces that work as a doorway to understanding themselves on a deeper level and teach them to deal with undesirable emotions .

  1. What are some of the benefits of attending this event?

An expansion of awareness to the self
Improves concentration
Provides Stress Relief
Nurtures emotional growth
Promotes positive attitude

  1. Tell us something about yourself that no one would ever guess?

That’s a fun question!
Usually people never know that I actually have an engineering degree , which I actually earned .
And I think in life you keep on experimenting till you find what means the most to you , besides you can have more than one purpose and it’s alright !
