About Me

Isa Barlak

“I was born in Frankfurt am Main. Since I was seven years old, the Lake Constance landscape has been my inner and outer home. I am married and the mother of three grown-up sons and in the meantime also the grandmother of four grandchildren. For a period of seven years I was also the foster mother of a foster daughter, also grown up in the meantime, who lived in our family as a full-time foster carer. In my diverse activities in connection with art, education and therapy, especially with children and adolescents, the individual person with his or her mental states and creative potential has always been and still is in the foreground for me. Sources of energy and joy are my family, friends and the cooperation and exchange with like-minded people as well as my creative, artistic activities in living connection with nature.”
