Paintings

A little history about my paintings and Art Therapy:
I love colours. I love the infinite blending and juxtaposition of colours. It took me a very long time to realise that I didn't need to paint something that made sense to the eye. After many years of denying my own needs to create because I wasn't a proper "painter", I started to let go my expectations of what I "should" paint, to  paint "how I felt". This was the beginning of my journey to paint from the heart rather than from the head. This way of painting has been very therapeutic for me and still is. This art of "letting go" could be used by all.

Art Therapy is a way of expressing your feelings through drawing and mark making. It has nothing to do with aesthetically pleasing pictures or images.
The emphasis is on the process of creating rather than on the end product.
Art Therapy can help everyone to connect with and understand their inner world, and towards the development of our integrated sense of self. It can help increase our self awareness and acceptance of ourselves.
Art Therapy works best when we set a clear goals and intentions before painting/mark making.


Now I paint using colours as a way to express my feelings, to guide me through a better way of being and feeling. It is also called "Intuitive or Soul Painting.
