Sharing my art therapy journey…by Karen Robinson

Welcome to my blog about my art therapy journey and about how others use art for therapy.  My art therapy practice consists of abstract painting and what I like to call abstract digital photo painting.  I have learnt that abstract painting and the act of writing an accompanying painting story for each abstract painting, has become an important form of self-expression for me. The process of making digital abstract photo paintings was just as therapeutic as painting but without the act of producing an accompanying story.

My abstract painting has proven to me, to be a very powerful way of being able to communicate deeply personal feelings which otherwise would never have been expressed.  During my journey, art has become a way to examine and heal emotional quagmires; and as I looked back over my work, I found it was a window into my sole as an artist.

I am hoping that by sharing my art therapy journey, will inspire others, to take up art therapy to find their voice – in order to be able to move forward in most difficult of times.  Art Therapy has brought me now to a much better place where I find myself being able to seek joy in each day.  As an ongoing process, I will be blogging about my art therapy journey “moving forward” and expand on how others have used/are using art therapy to assist physical and emotional well-being.  I hope you will join me!…Karen Robinson
