My ‘artist statements’ talk about the processes I undertake in completing an abstract painting and/or abstract digital photo painting. It took me some time to find a process that worked well for me; and more time to refine it to a point where I felt I was achieving a standard, that I was happy with. Please hover over the two links in blue below to find the Artist Statements for said.
The process of painting, painting story writing and digital photo painting has offered me a way of expressing thoughts and emotions which can be difficult to say out loud. I also came to understanding that art can be a very powerful way of communicating with others. therapy via art – gave me a voice…
My art therapy journey has been an important part of recent years and still will be an important part in years to come. 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!
