About My “Healing” Art series:
My Healing art reflects my path of trying to find emotional, spiritual and physical healing through art, many alternative healing modalities, and mindfulness. Through these works, I experiment with what a certain thought or feeling truly feels like. I then paint those first thoughts/feelings in colorful, textured layers. It is a very abstract process that requires a lot of quiet and inner exploration so I can “see” what colors and shapes really come to mind when thinking of a particular issue.
Second, I paint what I feel I need to help me heal by adding other colors and textures that evoke a healing thought. Finally, I add the last layers. These layers are my visual reminders of what I need to see to remember what it feels like to feel healed and whole. Included in this series are the more abstract pieces called “Strength,” “Voice,” “The Royal Feminine,” and “Soul” that show this layered, healing technique.
Also included in this series are some still life and animals artworks including “Arctic Owl,” “Love My Bike,” “Abundance,” “Harmony,” “Peace,” and “Love.” These depict my healing connection to different power animals (owls and falcons) and fun toys, (such as my mountain bike) as well as some cups I painted when I felt like I was in need of something.
