As a practicing artist and Art Psychotherapist I am always astounded by the healing power of art. The creative process enables us to connect at a pre-verbal level, often articulating and bringing into conciousness our feelings, thoughts and emotions when words fail. The power of art can regulate and enable us to reconnect with not only ourselves but others and the world around us. In making the sketchbook I was thinking of human connections and how we need them to place us in the world but how paradoxically we can be destroyed by the toxicity of some connections we make with some people. Through the creative process we can make sense of our own responsibility in these relationships which empowers us and enables change and transformation.
