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
flowers, community, plants, trees, cycles, botany, animals, flow, cells, bodily systems, SPIRIT, weather, matter, energy, water, fire, air, ether, environment, history, tradition, processes, mystical, evolution, birth, geometry, TRUTH, growth, aging, decay
Marlessa Wesolowski is a multi-modal artist residing in Saskatoon, SK. 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 the leadership of St. Paul’s Hospital to create the Healing Arts Program in Saskatoon. Her practice of expressive arts in health and community compliments a holistic paradigm in healthcare delivery to encourage one’s innate capacity to restore 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 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.
