For years she dedicates all her interest and devotion to the development of her family’s companies, thus becoming Director of H.R. and getting specialized in behaviour analysis and quality development in work environment, often being relater at conferences and courses.
She keep painting during her spare time, but she realizes more and more that her way of knowledge and inner growth is deeply connected with her artistic experience and life.
As a consequence her paint becomes a way to express an inner deep research, through symbolic images and experiment different techniques.
If painting for her is a way to express the process that take place in her inner life, her poetry enriches the expression and enlarge the variety of values and feelings to be shown. For this reason Luisella Traversi Guerra publishes few poetry-book.
