I feel so blessed to be in the Northwest painting in an old barn beneath the bald eagle nest... time to listen to the birds, watch the moon ripple through the evening waters and connect into the soul of my experiences. These compositions juxtapose real moments during my art therapy projects together with an animated expression of liberation that I have been so honored to witness and share beside some of the most courageous human beings on the planet... Former debt bonded slaves of India, children of war in Goma, DR Congo, child soldiers, sex slaves and youth who lost their entire family in the Massacre of Barlonyo, Northern Uganda. Through the colors of love they have found their voice of freedom. These paintings are headed for the Museum of Fashion in Brazil, galleries in Patagonia, Argentina as well as Kosovo. Thank you for all of you out there that choose to be the hero of our own story!

This Mural in Jisr Az Zarka was painted by Benjamin Swatez, Shira Shvadron and Arab and Jewish kids, together in Israel. The name of this town means: "the bridge over the blue river". The paint is a bridge to freedom and a platform of positive communication!

Israel Art Therapy Project - Mural by Benjamin Swatez, Shira Shvadron and Robert Markey in Neve Shalom, Israel. Both Arab and Jewish parents of our students painted their message of peace into the hair that dances in the colorful winds of change.
