I painted my way through 4 heart attacks in 10 months and open heart surgery, which was the result of a fourth heart attack. I had a 5th one in Mar 2019. These heart attacks were the result of a hereditary issue that isn’t tested for, talked about or treated in the US because there isn’t a pharmaceutical drug. It can be treated successfully with natural medicine. The issue is Elevated Lipoprotein (a)
About the Art: As an artist and art therapist it was natural for me to paint my way through these heart issues. I essentially painted my way back to health. This was a big part of my healing process. I consider these images paint sketches because the process of creating them was more important than the finished process. They were my attempt to capture what I was feeling at the time.
They are visionary watercolor/india ink images about different aspects of heart health that carried me through the process. As a trained art therapist I understand how powerful art is in the healing process and began painting right after the first heart attack. Everyone who has seen them has expressed being moved and touched in some way by the work. I created a companion book to go with this exhibit, which is a traveling exhibit for hospitals and clinics. The book, Resilient Heart Art: The Healing Power of Art contains 32 of the paintings, my experience as I painted each painting and a discussion on how to use art as a healing tool.
When you purchase an original painting of Katelyn's you will have the image and the energy that it contains in your space. When you view one of her images it will transport you to a new understanding of yourself and the world. This is the nature of visionary art. You go on a journey within that is created by the artist. You experience you in a new way without even needing to understand on a cognitive level.
These images are currently not for sale. They are available as a collection for exhibit
