The Healing Power of Paint

I have painted for thirty years. Much of that time selling my paintings to make a living. Now, I am switching gears. Instead of writing about me and my art, I want to blog about how the process of making art connects us to something beyond ourselves. I have witnessed the transformative power of painting in the watercolor classes I teach and I would like to explore that more. It will happen here.

The best art is uncomplicated.

I started this blog intending to write about the creative art's health and healing potential. Having been around art all my life, I thought I knew a lot about Art Therapy. But the more I read, the more fascinated I became, and the more I realized how little I knew. This blog is about my journey from full time artist to student at Southwestern College to Art Therapist... and whatever happens along the way.
