Meet Your guide, Amy
I work with people from all over the world – from folks who want a creative outlet for stress relief, to experienced artists who want to weave more intuition, mindfulness, and freedom into their work.
What we are doing here is not art therapy, but because of my training as an art therapist, I believe deeply in a process-oriented approach to art making. Tuning into the moment through your senses allows you to be mindfully present, enjoy the process of creating and experimenting, and let the inner critic relax. The funny part is, the more you focus on process, the more your art product improves.
“Whenever I feel stuck, it seems you always come to my rescue and remind me that I can do art every day…even if it is only an inch at a time. Thank you for all your inspiration.”
“You have blessed and affirmed me in so many ways, Amy. As I have shared with you before, your words are like water in parched ground and I am receiving the gift of your life-giving words. Thank you.
Not only are you a gifted artist, but you are also gifted in relating to others and calling forth what we can’t yet see. I am honored to be in your class and to receive instruction in art and in the intuitive process from you. You are such a GIFT.”
