|My favorite childhood book|
Ever since I was a young child and was thrilled by repeated readings of Little Golden Book's The Color Kittens, I have been in love with the joy and meaning of color. For me, color has always had an impact on my feelings and emotions, and I associate color with sensitivity.
Having been a creative person all my life, and a painter for more than 20 years, I feel as though I am beginning to understand the capability of art to nurture one's spirit. As I developed my skills as an artist I instinctively knew that choosing and using color was, in fact, very supportive of my own well-being.

This is truly the power in color and how it can affect one's sense of aliveness. If one reads the new research on the power of thoughts and emotions on cells, there is no doubt in my mind that viewing art that moves you to a peaceful internal space could only have a positive effect.
