These precious hands of mine are instruments of creation, giving form and life to my imagination.
Front and back, these hands are big, strong, gentle, rough around the edges, loving, and sensitive.

Marlessa Wesolowski is a visual artist residing in Saskatoon, SK, Canada, with her husband and two cats. As a self-taught artist, my inspiration to create is ever-evolving and informed by a desire to make sense of experiences and the world around.
In 2005, she co-founded The Healing Arts Program at St. Paul's Hospital in Saskatoon. Her expressive arts practice in healthcare and community complements the hospital's holistic paradigm to care for all.
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.
