My name is Nicola Offner (Greenwood is my artist name) and  I was born in Leicester, England. I am English at heart but  have had the wonderful privilege of living in one of the most beautiful places on earth – in Salzburg, Austria – for more than 37 years now.

I spend a lot of my time out in nature, writing, painting, playing the guitar and singing my own songs. I also like fast cars, trouble shooting and solving riddles. I have an English sense of nature and also of humour.

I have trained as  an ‘energy practitioner’ here in Austria and used methods such as plant, stone and other essences, kinesology, brain gym, meditation, energy work, the Emotion Code, work on the inner child, breathing techniques, my own music and brain training methods especially from Evolution Pedagogy  to heal from both neurological disorders and post traumatic stress disorder after a series of accidents and other events- Perhaps most important of all I started to paint and sing, write poetry and fairy tales to heal my inner child and found myself conversing with nature and its spirits and Source Consciousness.

I see it as my job now to guide others in their transformation process, help find their (re)connection, develop their senses, self healing abilities and find peace – to waken up from the nightmare/illusion and start enjoying life. “Become like the children”.


I have spent many years working on myself, remembering my childhood gifts and how to reconnect clearly with nature. Nature can offer us incredible support in so many areas of life and we are, it assures me, rather missing the point if we try to “go it alone” . By interacting with the spirits, guiding our brains and hearts to connect  with them and becoming more aware of the sentience of our surroundings we can far more easily step into a new life and they too!

My Visions:


 To help others using my talents and experience from my own bumpy ride.

  •  To help people to become aware, for themselves and for the good of the children and the earth, of the fact that we live here in an enormous, sentient garden – we are surrounded by conscious beings. By telling our children they do not ‘see and hear things’ because we do not creates havoc in their minds; the consequences of which are appalling.
  • A travelling ‘art’ exhibition of my work inviting the visitor to learn to interact with and discover their own nature using all the senses.
  • Get my music ‘out there’
  • finish my novel.
  • Sing more, dance more, dive into new, as yet by me still undiscovered, forms of creation.

Standing here as I am on the brink of a new understanding I am excited and awed at the possibilities opening up to all of us. We are all (humans and others!) walking each other home and I would like to offer you my humble dwelling, this homepage, as a resting stop along the way where you can rest, tank, receive information and have fun before you move on your way.

I love getting  comments or a ‘likes’ – they are a way of helping us to keep up the flow. And, if you wish to donate, I would sincerely appreciate an expression of your gratitude if what I have offered here is of help to you.
