When we draw, paint, write, move, sing and act our stories in the service of ourselves and others, we make a kind of art that transcends our barriers and diminishes the differences that keep us apart.
Our bodies, emotions and minds merge when we are in this ‘flow’ state and our creative expressions take flight. They allow us to release, contain, express and communicate, what we cannot do in words.
The expressive arts are as natural as breathing once we understand that one doesn’t need to possess a gift or skill to participate.
As an art therapist, expressive arts therapist and artist, my life has been dedicated to helping others who may be suffering or who may not be living up to their potential.
I believe that everyone can experience the liberation that comes through utilizing their innate creative capacity.
