Your Inner Artist Needs You. And You Need It Too.

Where has your childlike wonder, play, and creativity gone? It's still there. Waiting to enhance your work, relationships, and expression.


We bring together success-focused people to reconnect with the playful genius of their Inner Artist, so that they can have more fun and fulfillment in every area of life.

You Are Not Alone. Almost All Of Us Lose Our Inner Artist At Some Point In Our Lives.

We believe we can't do our joyful art as a career or make money from it, so we ditch it for more "adult" concerns. We believe we aren't creative enough there are other people better. We see it as a waste of time. It's not going to go anywhere, we'll only be disappointed, and possibly even laughed at when people see it. We believe essentially that our inner art is worthless in our lives. No matter how successful we are, losing our Inner Artist leads to joylessness, dissatisfaction, purposelessness, and boredom. Isn't it time to get this part of you back?

Arnaud's Inner Art Story

Arnaud CZ, Co-Founder Peaceful Creativity

My story isn't clean cut like a movie, it's a work in progress. I connected with my Inner Artist the first time I touched a guitar back in 1995ish. It was immediate. It sounded nice, it felt right, my intuition told me it'd get me p*ssy (it did). I discovered music production the following year and never stopped since then.

For 15+ years my obsession was 'I want to be a rock star' and 'I want to live from the music'. I didn't care about anything else because I "knew" that once I hit those milestones I would finally be happy and be okay. By 29 I had reached my second dream and lived from the music as a video game composer. The year I turned 30 I reached the first dream and toured Europe with Steakhouse Orchestra, playing in my home town in the best venue in front of all my friends and family to critical and financial success.

That same year I also realized that I'd been missing out on all the good stuff of life along the way. I pushed myself too hard, and I pushed my happiness always into the future, always chasing that next big thing. I "got" the thing, and still unfulfilled. That hurt real bad. In my years of trance, I lost track of my inner artist. I replaced him with metrics of success: audience size, money, number of downloads. I knew there had to be a better way.


I created Peaceful Creativity with a mission for people to create the life they want while enjoying the process. Happiness isn't in the future. It can be now.
Metrics of success don't make you happy. They might bring brief pleasure. But connecting with your inner artist brings you Joy right now, and it still creates awesome stuff in the future.

Arnaud helped me envision my ideal job, and then used a set of questions to prompt me to improve my job search. Thank you for your kind help Arnaud!

Arnaud was a great help for our game project as he was able to jump in late in the process and build on the existing theme and style of the game to create a seamless overall sound design that achieved exactly what we had hoped for.

Better than a psychologist, Arnaud guides us and makes us find some keys to better understand each other and go to where we want it. A thousand thanks.

David's Inner Art Story

David Papa, Co-Founder Peaceful Creativity

Growing up, I was always writing stories, performing in funny videos with friends, and hosting eventsEven in university I abandoned anything "practical" and studied creative writing. It was great. But after university, "practicality" started eating my brain.


Hypnotized by society's rules, I didn't think fiction or performance could be a career. I abandoned Inner Art and joined an advertising firm. Ugh. I spent many years trying to find satisfaction by switching jobs, getting an MBA, working in purpose-driven business, and even building my own business and working for myself as a coach. I love coaching. I have success and professional freedom, but I was still feeling like something very important was missing from my life.


Then, 15 years after university, in my mid 30s, I did an exercise that I give my clients called Your Proud History. I realized that one of my proudest moments of my life had to do with me being on stage. I was shocked. All this work, and what my heart wanted had been there a long time ago. So I signed up for a comedy improv course, still feeling kind of silly to pursue this. Old habits die hard. But in that very first class, I suddenly woke up. It was like an entire, sleeping part of my being was suddenly alive. Soon, "by coincidence," I was invited into a comedy group called Script for Brains. Now I perform twice a month and host our shows. I love it. Just from this activity my excitement and fulfillment took a jump. It's so fun. It has also made me a better coach!


Now I'm exploring the other long lost piece of my Inner Artist, fiction writing, and I'll be sharing all the bumps and bruises for your enjoyment in our Peaceful Creativity Community. We can have a great time with this Inner Artist thing together. 

I was worried to spend money on coaching, but after doing the work with David I feel this was the best money I ever spent. I really appreciated that he taught me tools that I can use on my own, supporting me through identifying the roots of negative emotions, and I had a breakthrough when he helped me shift emotions that I previously thought impossible, i.e. anger, fear, self-doubt. I have shifted my energy around money, and as a result, I just started my own business.

I found interacting with David very useful for my professional development. I wish I could have had more time with him. It helped me learn how to understand my own motivations and how to use that to be more effective (instead of always battling my weaknesses).

Your in-person sessions have been f***ing incredible! Thank you for them. One of your sessions opened my throat and I was able to speak differently at work, and another session opened me up to a new opportunity that brought me to LA.

How To Reconnect With Your Inner Artist

(And Solve Several Life Problems All At Once)


The Peaceful Creativity Process

Step 1: Replay

You start to uncover the Inner Artist that has been buried inside you. You use our gentle exercises like journaling, mindfulness, and history-taking to coax your Inner Artist out of hiding and back into your awareness. Then you just play. It's a game. There are no rules and no goals. It is important at this stage to hold pure curiosity. What if there really is an Artist inside you?

Step 2: Befriend

Once you've found your Inner Artist, you need to get to know it. It has a lot to say, but it might be shy at first. Don't rush. You use our community to hang out together, create together, and share together. You learn how it feels to be with each other and what each of you likes. There is no pressure here. There is no need for anything specific to happen. You have a new (old) friend, just get to know them and see what they are bringing to your life.

Step 3: Partner

Your Inner Art is now one of your best friends. You've seen the incredible fun, peace, and creativity it brings to your work, home, and social life. You can't imagine how you lived without it. You decide you want to go as far and as deep as this relationship will take you. You are fully in it together. Who knows what you might create together and give to the world?

Step 4: Identify

At this point you are so grateful for where your Inner Artist has taken you. Big joys, new experiences, opportunities, relationships, and life lessons. You had an effect on people. You added a little beauty to life in some way. You say thank you, and suddenly you realize that your Inner Artist is not actually a part of you, it is the Real You. You found a more true version of You. You now proudly call yourself an Artist, and people see it in you wherever you go.  

Arnaud was very helpful when it came to me creating a meditation habit. He helped break down for me into solve chunks that I can accomplish then scale it up and recommended different ways I can remember to achieve my habit

I would recommend Arnaud as very creative composer who helped us to create music composition for the performance at a Christmas party of our company. You can always rely on Arnaud that job he does is creative, in-time provided and innovative.

Arnaud proved to be a real pro. Working efficient and fast, delivering great iterations and shipping OST with SFX for our game in a really short time span - it was a pleasure to work with him.

Kris's Inner Art Story

Kristina Rosokha

Creative Director 

Peaceful Creativity

As a child, Kristina tried dancing, singing, playing the piano and writing, but she immediately realized that she was in love with drawing. Every day Kristina was hurrying to get to home quickly after school, and start drawing something new! It was connecting herself with her Self.

Then life went in another direction. She began to study history full-time at university. Kris slowly realized that she had lost her joy and motivation, so she took a bold move. She quit university and start drawing again. People thought she was crazy.

But she suddenly felt more alive. It was such an amazing reconnection with her inner art! She decided she never wanted to leave it again, and she would even pursue it as a career. However, Kris faced many difficulties on her artist's way. She had to work with other people's expectations, that she had to find some "normal" job. She had to fight her "impostor syndrome". She compared her art with works of other artists and was upset about her skills. Kris began to earn some money from art commissions, but she stopped enjoying the process very soon. She had to force herself to create for money, and it felt more like a boring unpleasant job. It was burnout.

Then she had an insight, what if not all my art is paid? What if I save some art just for myself? Now she learns new handmade techniques, that are not bringing money; she keeps it as something to reconnect with her inner artist and her joy in creating has returned.

As an artist who makes living from her art, Kristina learnt one important lesson: it is absolutely necessary to create art as a child. Playfully and with love. Even if your profession is creative, you may lose this bond with an inner child, an inner artist. Kristina is still working with it, and ready to do it together with others who may feel the same.
