Expressive Art Blog

"Every person must live the inner life in one form or another. Consciously or unconsciously, voluntarily or involuntarily, the inner world will claim us and exact its dues. If we go to that realm consciously, it is by our inner work. 

If we try to ignore our inner world, as most of us do, the unconscious will find its way into our lives through pathology: our psychosomatic symptoms, compulsions, depressions and neurosis. When we don't go to spirit, the spirit comes to us as neurosis."


-Robert A. Johnson - Jungian Psychologist


Expressive Art is an exploration of what we do and do not know about ourselves through spontaneous art making. Each month I feature a Spontaneous Collage or an Intuitive Drawing with accompanying reflections in the creative spirit of looking into the inner life.  Expressive Art Inspirations was a featured Typepad Blog on April 13th, 2012.
