About us

Artisa is co-founded and managed by Celeste Neelen. She works together with committed and skillful colleagues. We share a passion for a life long learning, writing, art, creating and Greece. Our strength lies in our individual expertise and the added value of our cooperation.

  Director Artisa Celeste Celeste Neelen graduated as work and organizational psychologist at Radboud University Nijmegen and modern dance teacher at Amsterdam School of the Arts.
