Jerry Wennstrom
Jerry Wennstrom is a New York born artist who after producing a large body of work, at age 29 set out to discover the rock-bottom truth of his life. For years he questioned the limits of his creative life as a studio painter. After destroying all of his art and giving away everything he owned, Jerry began a life of unconditional trust, allowing life to provide all that was needed. He lived this way for 15 years.


This interview, given by Marié Sakai, ATH Co-Editor of Arts & Art Therapy, explores with Jerry why he destroyed his work and how that act changed his life, his art, and his relationship with himself and the world - and how his story has captured the hearts and imaginations of a generation.


This conversation is not to be missed... by coming into contact with Jerry and his soul-lived wisdom you could be moved to begin a transformation of your own. 


Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: This educational video demonstrates the use creative art to assist in healing grief and loss.

Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: The famous Greek philosophers and mathematicians believed that numbers had the ability to enlighten a person with a sense of universal consciousness. And the higher capabilities in understanding the most abstract concepts, led to what they believed as Sacred Geometry. Leonardo Da Vinci and others saw the potential of integrating numbers and three-dimensional shapes. Take a long look at the power of Sacred Geometry-it too may add some magic and healing properties to your life. You never know the power of higher consciousness-it may instill in you a deeper sense of the microcosms and the macrocosms of your deepest thoughts.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Time to Listen tells the story of the renowned artist and psychiatrist Robert Rynearson, who is one of a dying breed of doctors who utilize creative art therapy techniques to help patients solve problems and settle inner conflicts. His incredible work as a doctor is only a small part of Bobs fascinating career as a sculptor, and the film aims to tell his story, from his conflicted childhood, his development of art therapy techniques, his experience as Ernest Hemingways psychiatrist, and finally to his retirement and legacy.

You, like a million-billion other people of this world are probably asking this exact question. To which I will do my best to answer. So here’s the philosophy so-to-speak on—well tell me—what the heck is this thing called ”art”? It’s pretty diverse and it’s pretty amazing, here’s why…


Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Well let's just say this is a way to answer what this Arts & Art Therapy Page is all about. It's about healing, it's about being real with yourself, trusting your artistic 'gut' and believing you are a visionary too. Whether you are doing art as therapy or you are a renowned artist-we all do art for some reason...

I think really I've always been an artist. Although, you wouldn't have caught me calling myself that until I was about 25! Before that, I preferred to just say I draw stuff, or I make stuff...


Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Selina Fenech's artwork is delightful as well as personal as she has struggled with illnesses. Her art has given her the key to find joyous moments and to share her love of fantasy, whim, and most importantly her tireless love of the fairy realm...

What do Napoleon Perdis, Robin Fredriksz, and Joey Mills have in common? Most people in film and fashion would say that they are three of the most gifted make-up artists in the industry. I am 15 years old and they are my heroes. I read and learn everything I can about them, so that I can follow in their large and impressive footsteps. Since an early age, makeup artistry has been my favorite form of art...

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: All across the United States, public schools are making decisions about whether or not to continue to offer art as part of their curriculum. One thriving form of art is the makeup industry. Cosmetics is a $300 billion dollar a year industry, and young people are aspiring to enter the field. Here is one young girl's story about what she is doing to achieve her dreams.

from Art Therapy Blog

"Art therapy is a very simple process of separating the thinking mind from the observing mind. When we think thoughts, they’re usually fleeting thoughts and we don’t give them a great deal of consideration. Very often we act on those inappropriately..."


Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: An interview with Dr. Chris James explores how the power of art can harness the brain's capacity for healing as well as dispel myths about mental illness to the community at large.

Michael Sachs was a precocious toddler who would sing and dance and talk in short sentences. He was cuddly and playful, interested in everything.

Then, shortly after he turned 15 months old, that all changed...


Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: This article profiles 19-year-old Michael Sachs who is diagnosed with Autism and is one of 54 artists featured in the new book “Artism: The art of Autism.” His art brings awareness to the disorder, raises money for charity, and in Michael’s words, “Is fun.”

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.
