Come Home to Your Self
I teach how to make figurative, symbolic, meaningful sculptures and art that allow a woman to embrace, nurture, and connect with her feminine wholeness, wisdom and power.
My dolls are figurative sculpture and emotional metaphors that express feelings, beliefs and connections to body, mind and spirit. Sometimes I begin with a feeling, a struggle, or a wish to visualize some internal and invisible energy. I do this to visually speak to it and to develop a relationship with a hidden aspect of myself. At other times I simply delight in the playing with the materials, colors and shapes, seeing what comes from immersing myself in the creative process. All of my dolls mirror some aspect of hidden personal beliefs and stories.

What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Great to have you with us and I really like the doll work/art on your website. Hope you find the topics and exchanges interesting. Now that I think about it, I don't think there is a forum/blog on art therapy. By the way, love art therapy. I was in a supervisory group with two art therapists and learned so much, especially about working with children.
Hi Barb. So glad to have you in the Alliance. Your work is amazing! I love the incredible dolls you make: what a beautiful art! Also, the symbolism of dolls is so rich. As you may know, Jung recounts in his autobiography, Memories, Dreams, Reflections how he played with sticks and soldiers as a child, imbuing them with personas. Welcome, and enjoy the site.
