These precious hands of mine are instruments of creation, giving form, and life to my imagination.
Front and back - they are big and strong, gentle, rough around the edges, loving, and sensitive.
Inspiration comes from
community, plants, trees, cycles, botany, animals, flow, cells, bodily systems, SPIRIT, family, weather, matter, energy, water, fire, air, ether, environment, history, tradition, processes, mystical, evolution, birth, geometry, TRUTH, growth, ageing, decay
Marlessa Wesolowski is a multi-modal artist residing in Saskatoon with her husband and two cats. As an artist, her inspiration to create is ever-evolving and sometimes relentless. Nonetheless, it is the processes of creation and engaging her imagination that intrigues her the most, regardless of the aesthetic outcome.
In 2005, she collaborated with St. Paul's Hospital's leadership to create the Healing Arts Program in Saskatoon. Her expressive arts practice in healthcare and community emphasizes people’s unique identity by providing creative and meaningful experiences through the arts to support an integrated, holistic approach to care.
In 2019 Marlessa graduated with a Master of Arts in Expressive Arts Therapy (magna cum laude) from the European Graduate School, Arts, Health, and Society Division in Switzerland.
