Art, Ideas and Tutoring


About UMS -> Ulrike Miesen-Schuermann


After so many different jobs (railway official, bookkeeper and language teacher in Britain and Germany) I didn’t want to stop learning and teaching. Art is the best area for both, and I’m so happy to have found the way into it despite all the warnings and doubts. I “just” followed my heart: I’ve alternated painting and writing, first learning then teaching.
Now it’s time to combine them to really get to the centre because time is running and we need to stop and live an enjoyable life.

 Do you do that already?


We all have been able to keep some pieces that passed our ways: memories, photos, stories being untold or halfway forgotten or some things we keep in drawers, in the attic or on the mantelpiece.
During the last 5 years I’ve collected so many of them as my life has changed so much: I lost my husband to cancer and my old parents’ home got sold not long ago. To keep everything just in my head seems too less. So, I’ve got a big box full of remarkable things to be painted and stories to be told and written in order to not to forget them and to remember former parts of life that formed me and made me who I am now. That tells me about life in general and maybe makes the future even better for more than myself.


It’s always good to know…
