Art - My Journey to Therapy
In 2019, exhausted from sexual assault survivors’ pain, after closing my non-profit organization, I posted that I can not do it anymore. I felt as if my veins are burning and I have to clean my soul from it all. It was right after my 45th Bday.
A month later, I saw a video on Youtube which was titled – epoxy and wood. The words excited me.
You see, I’m my father’s daughter and he taught me as a young child how to chop wood, work with a hammer and more skills a young girl can gain working with wood.. He also wrote a book about glues and epoxy was a word that felt like home.
I immediately went and bought some epoxy resin and started experimenting.
In the first few weeks, I just didn’t understand what’s going on. I didn’t feel sad, but I was sitting, creating while crying. Tears just wouldn’t stop pouring out of my eyes. When people asked me what was this clear liquid I was creating with, I used to answer “Epoxy and Tears”.
Then, I understood why art is a therapy. I understood what people talked about when they said art is therapeutical. I understood that it’s without of my reach, like my body is self cleansing, pouring all the hurt outside of me.
It took a while to purify myself. To go back to my smiling self, happy vital creature that I am. I felt as if I’m painting back my colors. Painting over all the grays and darks. All the blackness of hurt.
Then came Covid.
I placed myself in my workshop and declared – “I’m not stepping out till I am the queen of the epoxy oceans, and began some long months of practicing. I started pouring and casting, played with all kinds of epoxy and pigments to understand all effects possible.
Today, I still create with epoxy resin art on demand wall art, but if you ask me where is my passion, it’s in drawing. I love every second of drawing acrylics abstract or realistic drawings,
I make mixed media custom designed art upon request. I love every challenge my clients dream of and enjoy every second of creating for them – ART ON DEMAND
I also have some of my works presented in beautiful galleries – GALLERIES
