Doodling & Drawing
It all began with a little red-dressed doodle girl popping out of my pen in 2014. Read more about my journey over at Mira(cle)Doodles page.
In 2018 I drew Mira(cle)Doodles on paper with ink and many stories unfolded. Also Mira loves to answer your Q’s with popping an answer as a doodle – Check out the Q&Doodles too!
Since 2015 I’ve called myself Story Aunt visiting groups of children and drawing coloring pictures for them based on their wishes. As every child in the group is seen & heard these coloring pictures have turned into empowering tools to inspire storytelling and imagination bonding children together as a group.
Elina Puohiniemi aka elinap
I’m artist and certified life coach, the creator of Mira(cle)Doodles series of hundreds of doodles published online since 2014. I love to help people with finding their dreams and light up your day with my art and insights.
Since 2015 I have also created coloring pictures for groups of children to empower teamwork, ignite imagination & storytelling and also to teach about character strengths and other aspects of positive psychology.
I love being in nature and lead a simple, peaceful life with my family of four. My spiritual practice is daily studying of A Course in Miracles for the second round now in 2019 as well as walking in the forests, looking up at the sky and also coloring - My mind relaxes while I color and the beauty of colors connects me with my heart.
"She has the amazing gift to put her teachings into art and that makes it more relatable and accessible. She has a way of making you look at your own inner demons, gremlins, critics, and knows how to bring them into the light. I loved doing her exercises, because actually creating something, either through drawing, colouring, writing, is such a wonderful way to learn."
Diana Pak from HeartMessages
"I have known Elina for several years and every moment of our friendship has been a delight. I have gained so much wisdom from participating in her programs as well as just conversing with her in her groups. Her character Mira (MiracleDoodles) is a delight. She offers such healing wisdom in such a fun and loving way. One thing I know for sure is that Elina, should you choose to associate yourself with her, will have a beautiful and lovingly positive impact on your life. She has the soul of an angel and it comes through in her work and her life."
Linda Symonds from Say YES to Happy
"I love Elina! She teaches with a creative spirit and always finds new ways of expressing her wisdom within while she helps people in her group to explore their journey. Her openness makes for a shared learning experience that connects to the heart, and to me, this is the best teacher—one that isn't afraid to be vulnerable."
