I've been a mad creative for well over 25 years.
I've authored books, co-created two Tarot decks with my hubby, penned poems, written over 1200 reviews, made loads of jewelry, whipped up aromatherapy goodies, won a magazine award for a recipe, designed social media art...
You get the picture.
But this (crazy) year, I really--really--came to understand the healing power of creativity.
Both in making Art...and witnessing it. In any form.
So I've decided to make creativity and art the focus of this blog.
I realize that Art is:
- Self Expression
I want to share all aspects of Art, because I believe we need to make it and celebrate now more than ever.
After I finish my coursework, I'll be offering creativity and therapeutic Art coaching, too. Stay tuned.
Oh, and you may be wondering "What is CATHARTICUS?"
1. From Greek, katharsis, through Late Latin catharticus; inducing catharsis; that is, purgative or cleansing.
2. A purifying release of the emotions or of tension, especially through art or drama.
3. In psychoanalysis, a technique used to relieve tension and anxiety by bringing repressed material to consciousness.
