A Healing Hand, A Healing Art

"A Healing Hand, "encaustic, 8" x 10" [SOLD]

"When we make art to heal, the creative spirit within us is awakened and takes us to who we are when we go inward, which brings out her her song as ours. When we dream and make art of the dreams, we are taken home, taken to the place of healing and healed. Art brings out our inner healer, which changes our whole physiology, and our spirit, mind, and body heal."

- Michael Samuels and Mary Rockwood Lane Creative Healing: How to Heal Yourself by Tapping Your Hidden Creativity

"At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity." - Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for." - Georgia O'Keeffe

One often calms one's grief by recounting it. - Pierre Corneille
