outward expression of inner experience
Touch Drawing is a simple yet profound process where the fingers take the place of pen or brush. Paper is placed over a freshly painted surface. Wherever it is touched, an imprint is made on the back side. Impulses from within take form on paper through the movement of the fingertips on the page.
A multitude of drawings can be created in one session, each a stepping stone to the next; guiding progressively deeper into the self.
Through this direct drawing process, even the least confident artist can experience interior images coming alive on the page. The hands are extensions of the soul, moving freely in response to the sensations of the moment. The medium is immediate and transparent. Previously unused channels of expression can open, enabling feelings to flow forth.
The act of creating provides more than cathartic release: it unleashes vibrant healing forces which guide the psyche toward wholeness. Touch Drawing is a practice of creative, psychological and spiritual integration.
I offer monthly Touch Drawing group sessions as well as utilize Touch Drawing during individual sessions. Clients are encouraged to attend a group Touch Drawing session to become familiar with the process and then use individual sessions to process the drawings.
