When Art Heals


things she couldn't tell her psychiatrist by Suzanne Coley
One year ago I left my job as Director of an art program for people with psychiatric disabilities to pursue a career as a full-time artist.  

I must say I miss working with artists and writers who think outside the box.  Every day was a wonderful adventure into the depths of imagination, working with unconventional materials, and engaging in artistic projects that allowed participants to express themselves in ways they couldn't to others.

Wishing all of you the best!

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
