Creative Break

In March, when my business suddenly changed, like most everyone else’s,  I was no longer facilitating in-house art therapy groups. I felt a deep loss. It was then that I realized how important it was to me to be creating within a community and interacting with people about their artwork.  It was very clear that I needed to create art…

Friendships and human connections add meaning to our life. As a child, I loved getting a letter in the mail from my pen pal; a little gift opened with great anticipation.

Your emotions are real and valid. We all need ways to express our strong emotions in productive ways that don’t diminish their value. Taking a creative break is…

Make Your Mark

We are born to create. It’s in our DNA. We were made in the image of the Master Artist himself, yet we often discount what is innate by saying “oh, I’m not good at art,” “I can’t draw” or “I’m not creative.” Maybe we narrow the definition of creativity to artistic ability alone.
