Fair question. You're thinking, Clare - aren't you a counsellor and healing practitioner? Why put a page up about art?! Well, here's why:
I love creating art, it grounds me, it helps my energy flow, and sometimes it makes others happy, too. This painting above was done in the presence of my son doing his own art. We had such fun together!
If you're in my town of Nelson, you might see business cards and postcards with this image (above). The postcards are for sale to support my efforts to invite youth to educational circles and experiences, who might otherwise not be able to afford it. Postcards aren't huge money makers, but it's a start. I have to start somewhere, so I am doing what I love - by creating art and continuing to provide services to those who may not be able to afford it.
My next workshop for youth can be found here.
Other causes I hope my art can support, include educational programs through Wildsight, and outdoor education at the Waldorf school here in Nelson.
If you're reading and happen to be a philanthropist, please contact me about supporting youth! They are our future!!
