I typically paint the same symbol numerous times, letting loose emotions, thoughts, and feelings. When a painting flows, it feels effortless and fun. When I struggle with a painting, I set it aside and let it sit. When I do return to it, I often paint over the canvas, knowing the ghost of what didn’t work is relevant to my ability to turn it around. Painting, like therapy, requires both the will to work through difficulties and the fortitude to know when to let things sit.
At my core, I believe in kindness and that there is a powerful connection among people who care for others on a soul-level. As a therapist, I see what’s going on inside a person. My art, in turn, is the reflection of what going on inside me.
