The taking of one’s own life is seen by most of us as a tragedy of the greatest proportions. Current statistics surrounding suicide are jaw-droppingly horrendous. According to the World Health Organization and the International Association for Suicide Prevention, one million people die by suicide each year...


Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I have an ongoing interest in the use of expressive arts therapy in the maintenance of good mental health - both art AS therapy and the use of the arts in therapy to get to the basis of difficulties that could lead to depression. The incorporation of the arts - drawing, scribbling, journaling, poetry, creative writing - into my day ensures that I navigate the difficult moments in my life with a degree of awareness and mindfulness that's not always otherwise possible. This article was written as a prelude to No Laughing Matter: Comedy Gala hosted by The Comedy Channel to support the work of Suicide Prevention Australia.


Arts & Art Therapy 

by Sarah Leavitt

I’ve always had a really bad memory. So when my mother got Alzheimer’s disease, I knew that I had to record what was happening to her and to our family. I wanted to be able to look back over my notes and remember all the moments of craziness, beauty, and tragedy -- and not lose any of them...

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Sarah Leavitt uses the art of comics to give the extraordinarily moving and vivid account of living with and loving a family member with Alzheimer's. The details are filled with humor and insight. The book will leave you breathless, heartbroken, and profoundly grateful.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Leonardo da Vinci had no formal education, but he was endlessly curious about the natural world. He examined it and studied it. We know what he was thinking because he left behind 6,000 pages of drawings and notes. This is a great video for getting to know this famous artist.

Stroud is a pretty little town nestled peacefully in the Karuah Valley, NSW. The verdant green and rolling hills surrounding Stroud are more reminiscent of England than of the wide brown land of Dorothea Mackellars’ poem, My Country**. Maryjane O’Dell’s house and garden in the main street of Stroud combines the quaintness of a cottage garden and a home lovingly and skillfully restored, with a quirky sense of humour. The result is a delight for the senses...


Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Maryjane O'Dell would not consider herself to be an artist but the fact is that she is one. Her home, Ye Olde Bakehouse, in Stroud, Australia is one of those places where the creativity of the owner jumps out at you. Her joy in making and constructing things is evident everywhere you look and the result is a delight for the senses.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: From youtube - 'WINK News interviews Collier County's only comprehensive, not-for-profit mental health and substance abuse treatment facility serving children, adults and families, David Lawrence Center, about a new creative, expressive art therapy program designed to help clients access their innermost selves. The program is being used in the Crossroads adult residential substance abuse treatment program and was featured in the Community Gallery at the Collier County Sheriff's Office Administrative Offices.'

I revisit a number of themes in my paintings. Death, transcendence, impermanence, all of these come up in my works over and over, subtly or overtly. I use my paintings as a means to finding the invisible patterns all around us...


Editor’s Note: Felix Eddy's artwork emphasizes the figure in new and thoughtful ways. Her artwork lens towards thematic references on Death, Transcendence and Alchemy. Hidden messages and symbolism are just the beginning to Felix Eddy's work...


Arts & Art Therapy

by Hollie Chantiles

Lie down or sit comfortably in a chair with both feet on the floor.

Breathe in and out … yes in AND out … we have a tendency to forget the OUT part when we are concentrating on something new and not quite comfortable for us. Do this for about 3 minutes, keeping one hand on the chest above your heart, and the other on your navel to feel the passage of breath...


Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This is an excerpt from the book Finding Sweet Home by Hollie Chantiles. Her book is a collection of entries from her journal and blog. It has pictures that she has painted and images that she has painted. She started this project 4 years ago and one of the first things she completed were some answers to a very simple sounding question, "What does HOME mean to you? This is a meditation that she did to find answers to that question.

Well, I didn’t know it was an ancient art at the time. Tree-wrapping, that is. I was in the bush, I had some wool and some colored twine, I had some time on my hands and, as much as I love the Australian bush, it’s always seemed a little bit devoid of colour to me...


Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Art Therapy comes in many different shapes and sizes - which is one of the many reasons I love it. Clothing a tree in colour is as much an act of creation, a work of art, as is painting or drawing. And equally as thereapeutic - especially if you connect your actions and consciousness to the similarities across cultures.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: The beauty of visual storytelling. From youtube: "Tales of the 'One In Ten' is a new animated web series based on the real stories of Australian children from disadvantaged backgrounds who struggle daily with the effects of financial hardship. Alice & the Giant Emptiness is a contemporary tale about a young girl living with the burden of disadvantage, who overcomes a negative self-image and the taunts of classmates to live a life full of possibility. Alice & the Giant Emptiness is the first in the Tales of the 'One In Ten' series created to raise awareness of the effects of disadvantage on children.

Our heroine has gone in search of the answers to life. Perhaps not all of life, maybe only the answers to her own  life, or perhaps she’s just in search of a little peace in this endlessly changing and complicated world...


Editor's Note from Karen Adler: My life kept falling apart for a long time and for different reasons. So I came up with a folder on my Mac called options.doc and by a process of elimination, decided to become a writer and researcher. Now I combine writing and research with art therapy.

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: A truly beautiful and magnificent contribution from a young man whose message is 'You don't have to find out you're dieing to start living."

Empty bottles make great decorations, chairs, tables, fixtures in the home, chandeliers, water fountains- and even building materials for the structure of the house itself!

A stunning example of artistry and imagination. Who knew reclaimed materials could be so deluxe?

The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
