The Art of Life
the choices we make
Creating 'Heaven on Earth'
In ancient times animals were so revered that they were worshiped and in
some parts of the Earth today this sacred reverence to animals continues.
As in ancient times there are just so many people who love animals and have them
in their own homes as part of their family as pets.
The vast majority of these pets are just so much loved; Antosa simply adores all
creatures great and small! :) And they have been my artistic inspiration for my
4 fully published children’s books:
Antosa's love of Art and the 'Art of Medicine' is portrayed so beautifully throughout Ancient times and is epitomised in Ancient Greek Religion, Mythology & Art.
As a former London Harley Street Consultant in Holistic Health & Beauty, & with two immediate members of my own family practicing medicine (one as a surgeon) one must always recall to heart the ancient writings of

Art of Life!
Love of Life!
I hope you had a wonderful Valantine day!
Antosa simply loves life and to create it is as the air I breath I simply cannot exist without creating and as ideas flow within me they eventually become a reality and so it was with my creating
Aro’mata De La Rose which is my 'Art of life'& Love of Life philosophy & practice, created when I was a London Harley Street
Specialist Consultant in Holistic Health & Beauty
fascinated and loves Water,
Acqua, La Mer
whatever the language we speak
what it is and our life depends upon it.
Without this amazing gift, that is free and
falls from heaven and bubbles up from the depths, the soul of the earth, without this liquid we would
simply not exist
Earth is one beautiful Acqua ball, from space it is a sapphire jewel unlike any
other planet in our solar system
bodies are unique living water beings we are 'Acqua, La Mer’s of life'
Simple as a Daisy
Perfect as a Pearl
Today someone very dear to my heart sent me a beautiful memory of a glorious summer day July 5th just a few years ago, it was a picture as I sat overlooking the sea after hand picking daisies and making them into a daisy chain which I then hung around my neck.
That one picture evoked such a wonderful feeling of well- being, reminding my heart of one not so long ago bygone day and lazy day of a sun kissed Summer full of bliss & love.
Life will love you back
Love is never Lost!
A loving smile, kind words, good deeds, generosity of the heart along with loving kindness and Mercy .

Living in the present is our Gift from the Divine and as we
treasure, appreciate and are grateful for our gift of life,
Antosa believes that Love never Fails for I am a true, blue, pure, Romantic!
And what could be more Romantic than the
legend of the Holy Grail one of the most enduring Romantic tales in Western
European Literature & Art.
The search for this magical vessel became the
principal quest of the knights of King Arthur, and continues to capture the
imagination even now in the 21st Century

foraged wild apples that she collected.
I simply could not let these little autumn
treasures go to waste.

about each season and the colours of autumn are just spectacular.
