Editorial Reviews

From the Author

      I first began to paint and draw out of adesperate need for a language, a medium that could communicate the pain insideof me.  I was in therapy. I was shattered,overwhelmed and terrified. No words could communicate what I carried inside ofme, the deep trauma from years of childhood abuse and torture that werehaunting and debilitating me.
 
     Then my therapist posed a life-changingquestion that shifted the entire course of my therapeutic process. He asked me- as I sat paralyzed, despairing, and frozen on the couch in his office - if Ihad ever considered drawing or painting as a way to help me communicate whathad happened. That question led me to the most surprising discovery of my ownpower, willingness and courage to heal from within.
 
     Mypaintings are the cathartic, vivid and sometimes disturbing, but veryliberating answer to that question. Profound relief came to me when my terrors,hopes, discoveries, and experiences were finally voiced on the canvas. My paincame out, depicted with a strong, loud, and clear voice of color and detail.This voice worked for me! It healed me. I painted myself sane. I painted myselfout of Hell and into a beautiful life, rich and whole.
     
It is my desire to share with others in wordsand images how I externalized the experience of severe abuse through art,bringing it into the therapeutic arena for healing. I am able to share with othersthe inner workings of a deeply traumatized person. I speak from livingexperience of how I healed. I want to foster a deeper understanding of thecrucial elements of the process that were most beneficial and fruitful in thejourney back to wholeness and joy. I want to witness to the miracle that I haveexperienced and become.
