Hi I am Zeva. I work as a Creative Arts Therapist and I’m an artist. I use art for myself to express and make meaning of the world around me. I use different creative forms including; graphic art, mixed media/collage, resin, painting, watercolour, drawing, poetry and photography. Art revitalises me and brings me joy and a sense of pride. I love colours and texture. I’m inspired by so much. Often simple things like a pastel turquoise colour, the texture of a leaf, a rose petal, a person’s character or the sound of a bird chirping. Im drawn to beauty and am very curious, mindful and reflective.
I work as a therapist with children helping them to express their experiences and feelings offering a variety of materials. I also work multi modally which is a term used to describe not only visual arts but other creative expressions. Other forms include; music, drama, yoga, movement, poetry, sand play and dance. It brings me great satisfaction empowering others to understand their experience and enabling them to take steps for change in the future. In creating a safe, nurturing and respectful space I honour the power of being seen and heard completely. In being present to another I am able to offer them a healing space where there is containment yet freedom tfor them to be themselves. I have been witness to the beautiful magic of Arts therapy, both professionally and personally, and I know it can be a gentle, restorative and transformative process.
Art making is fun and has become a daily ritual in my life and it makes room for soothing and self care. Life without art would be very dull and I’m grateful everyday for how art makes me feel so alive and positive. #artist #melbourneartist #artwork #melbourne #artmaking #selfcare #creativity #arttherapy #trusttheprocess #melbourne_insta #artistsoninstagram #creativeartstherapists #healing #breathe #proud #sharing #grateful #dailyritual #happiness #light #healingart #makingspace #takingtimeout #beingcreative #overcoming #therapy
