Marlessa Wesolowski is a multi-modal artist residing in Saskatoon, SK. As an artist, her inspiration to create is influenced by nature's phenomena in human life.
In 2005, she co-created the St. Paul’s Hospital Healing Arts Program in Saskatoon. Her practice of expressive arts in health and community compliments a holistic paradigm that encourages one’s innate capacity to restore and nurture a natural state of becoming through disciplines of the arts.
She utilizes an arts-based approach in education, mentorship, and research that integrates traditional and western approaches into healthcare and its delivery.
In 2019 Marlessa received her Master of Expressive Arts Therapy (magna cum laude) from the European Graduate School, Arts, Health, and Society Division in Switzerland.
