Originally from Germany, Angelika Heinbach (Founder & CEO) has been living in Spain for more than 30 years. She has specialized in enhancing creativity and communication as well as promoting the cultural tradition of millennial mosaic art and the “Trencadis” mosaic technique. While she was still a child, her mother, Martha, sparked her passion for the arts . When she came to Barcelona , she was impressed by the works of Miró, Dalí, Picasso, and especially the genius of Antonio Gaudí.
She was able to reconcile her career in multinational companies with the advancement of her passion by attending specialized courses in arts and mosaic arts, both in Spain and other countries. During more than 35 years of her professional life, whether working with multinational companies or on a freelance basis, she discovered that communication among the employees from different departments is key to corporate success. Bad communication undermines motivation. She has dedicated her work over the past years to reconciling corporate Training issues – organizing Teambuilding and Events seminars for groups and companies. She loves her work and it is her objective to make employees identify with their company and get along with their colleagues nicely- In group Events we love to teach each participant to design and create his/her own work of art.
Today, with her Studio MOSAICCOS, a long-standing dream has come true and she is excited about what she is doing: With Teambuilding and Eventos “Experiencia Gaudí” MOSAICCOS combines arts with company and group objectives. Moreover, in our special mosaic classes, we teach children and adults to unleash their creativity and create artworks of their own which can be used to decorate their homes or as a present for their loved ones, a very special souvenir from Barcelona done by themselfes. Also we create and sell all kinds of decorative mosaic artworks.
