MY CREATIVE PHILOSOPHY
I do not "teach" art, but rather it is my intent to inspire and awaken what lies within in each individual. We are all innately creative beings on some level. It is my aim to eradicate the belief that creativity and art is only for some. Time and time again in my workshops I am always reminded by a participant how relaxing it is to paint, how the vivid colors of paint and the infinite techniques they try are so calming and a huge stress relief.
**Recent research on visual art has focused on its psychological and physiological effects, mostly in clinical populations. It has shown that visual art interventions have stabilizing effects on the individual by reducing distress, increasing self-reflection and self-awareness, altering behavior and thinking patterns, and also by normalizing heart rate, blood pressure, or even cortisol levels.
Doesn't everybody need that?
Even if only for a moment, we are all better for taking the pause from our daily routine and giving energy to something that feeds our spirits, stimulates and stirs our creativity.
