HEALING PAINTINGS

Why I make Art?


It has always surprised me how art can uplift your mood, your energy just by transforming the decor of your space. I create paintings to bring light to your home. I love how a painting on your wall can instantly change the perception, the energy, and the sense of your room.




Why I call them healing painting?


For years, I have been restoring murals for a living. This wonderful job did not only teach me to understand and reconstruct ancient decors, but I also started to feel a part of the space where I am working in. Ancient buildings such as churches, mansions and castles are printed with centuries of history, memories, and they diffuse a strong energy through the walls, objects and places where they are located. We are also doing the same in our living space. No matter where we are, we tend to create our own sense of history in our house. We plant some seeds in our home and make them grow without having conscious about it. Karen Kingston explained it very well in her book “The sense of the space”. She wrote: “Our homes are the extension of ourselves and an expression of our spiritual values and individual creativity”. In fact, all objects, walls and furnitures become infused with energy that we produce. Working with energy to help people heal made me interested in the energy that could possibly be radiating from my pieces of art. I realized that there was in fact energy being emitted from my art!




How my art can diffuse energy?


Working with energy to help people heal made me interested in the energy that could possibly be radiating from my pieces of art. I realized that there was in fact energy being emitted from my art! I asked myself : “How can I use my art not only to embody a space, but also to enhance the flow of energy to help its future owner harmonize their home?” While I am painting, I am creating emotions, these emotions that float around the object. It helps me to release some parts of me that won not serve me anymore; there is a healing process in every creative action. So, when I achieved a painting, I begin to clean it thoroughly to allow for some space to welcome new energy. And finally I energize it with healing energy that will be beneficial for his future owner. Because the materiel beauty can heal. I am intentionally creating paintings with a healing energy imprinted on it!
