The Art of Recovery:
(Intuitive Art)
Joanna Whitney began drawing in early childhood, and it became her first escape and
respite. She now has a Master of Fine Arts degree, and has won many awards. Ms. Whitney
has been involved in many performances that combine paintings, poetry, music and
video. “I make art as a prayer; as a celebration; as a way to connect myself
to myself. I make art as a way to receive psychic guidance; as a way to ground myself
to the earth and to daily living. I make art to give away to my friends; to bring
spirit into the world; to integrate all my selves. I make art to heal my pain.”
Ms. Whitney calls her style of art “Intuitive.”

“Crying in silence.”


“Constanze trying
to figure out the rules of the Game of Life.
The only real rule:
do what you can to survive.”
