Because we all know what it's like to be hounded by the inner critic, I'm doing a series of artist interviews this week with some AMAZING artists who have overcome these fears to live in creative love:
I want you to practice creative self-care: Make some art, ignite your spark - feed your soul.
My name is Amy Johnson Maricle. I am a licensed mental health counselor and art therapist,and artist who has been helping girls and women develop creative self-care skills for over 10 years. Whether you are just looking for personal or creative exploration, or you are grappling with anxiety, depression, or trauma, I want you to know that the arts are a powerful way to express, understand, and heal yourself.
I will show you how art transforms you.
