2016 • Beverly Hills • Bethesda • San Juan • Taos • Q projects • HeSheWe collaborations— from commissions to patent pending art object(s)…
Thank you, thank you all (you know who you are(!)) for placing my work with integrity, for commissioning work for beautiful environments, for engaging creative projects, and most especially — to the few that always have 5 minutes and an open mind to hear me out about sculpture concepts, studio explorations, and creative pursuits that go beyond gallery walls to benefit mankind. Your listening and willingness to understand without judgement yet with constructive feedback and at times brutal honesty, helps guide me with essential round table counsel, because of “we”, this journey of “me”, continues to blossom tenfold.
2017 • HAPPY NEW YEAR
Self-expression has the ability to clarify one’s thoughts and release pent up emotions — which opens doors for civil dialog, respect, humility, curiosity, kindness — whatever the vehicle: music, performing arts, literary, painting, sculpture, weaving, cooking, gardening, fashion, photography, digital, design etc. — God willing self-expression continues to connect people across neighborhoods, borders, oceans.
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.
ps: though my emotive & gestural painting workshops are not advertised as years past — I welcome private workshops for individuals at my studio in Central Florida. For more information please feel free to contact me directly: http://heimart.com/pages/contact.html
