Making art heals. During the creative activity deep subconscious and rational processes take place. Healing happens with therapy, through talking, sharing, comparing, reading, thinking, meditating, and writing. However, when I make art with the intention to heal, the creative act assembles all of those actions into one object. Therefore the artwork embodies the processes.
