Does Art Heal?
I saw this quote online and found it interesting as it reminded me of something a young artist said to me this week.
Although a normally very upbeat person, she said that she used art to express her sad and negative side but she was then so ashamed about those feelings that she never showed that art to anyone.
We talked for a while and I encouraged her to keep creating.
I originally got back to art myself in 2001 to help me relax and recover from stress burnout.
It did indeed help me to heal and with my faith in God.
It then quickly became something that I realised I wanted to share with others.
First I painted for myself, then I painted for others.
To uplift, bring beauty into the world of others and positively touch the heart of people on an emotional level.
So yes I believe art can heal.
If you’re an artist I’m sure you’d relate to this.

Ciao for now.
