"I've been the unseen employee. I want to share the chance of being seen and understood by the people we work with.

Team leaders can lead more effectively when they make time to connect with their team at a group and one-to-one level.

Team members are more confident and productive when they understand each another and feel valid within their team's culture.

Founder's Story

After spending three years as a portrait artist, drawing complete strangers on the streets of London, Naples and Berlin, I came across a truth.

The pure sense of connection you feel when you draw a person’s portrait is something that can be shared and benefit more than just me. I started TRA L’ARTE as a means to do exactly that, share something good.

My deeper purpose is to enable work to feel more meaningful and our ambitions connected, so our lives are more enriched by the uniqueness we all so obviously are!
