My connection with the healing power of art began 25 years ago as my journey through recovery, psychotherapy and “no-mind” painting led me to self-discovery, accountability and biggest surprise ever, an artist career.
Digging through the trenches of my soul was not pretty nor fun — though life saving — (I could have lived without this expedition but continued as “walking dead”) I learned how to reclaim and heal a lost connection between my inner child and adult — and then — uniting myself with an emotive style of “no-mind” painting — my life force was resuscitated, and right side up.
Without doubt healing art programs are growing in value in health care and art institutions. Thank you Renee Phillips, Founder, Manhattan Arts International for all that you do on behalf of artists and the healing arts. The world needs more people like you.
