At the private opening reception for Transformation By Fire. I have a sculpture in the exhibition. In 2003, I was fortunate enough to be one of 11 women (who had suffered violence in their lives) to participate in a project called "Out of the Mud the Lotus Blooms". We created clay totem sculptures of hope. That project sparked what has now been 10 years of women coming together and transforming their lives. Victors rather than victims. This exhibit is a retrospective of the past decade, featuring works from all of the 10 years. The show runs from Feb 7th to Apr 28th. Ad
In 2002 I took an Art Therapy course at the Barbara Schlifer Clinic with Suzanne Thomson. It has a huge impact on my life. It was in that course that I knew my calling in life was to be an artist. I am so fortunate as an artist to have had this as my first exhibition 10 years ago.
If you or someone you know is suffering from violence or have in the past you can contact the Barbara Schlifer Clinic for help. www.schliferclinic.com
