Did you know that the brain needs to be exercised much like the body does?
So, let’s do a brain workout!  This workshop consists of a short introduction and seven exercises for attaining drawing skills and exercising your brain.
We use our brains when we draw, and this not only releases endorphins, but helps build new connections and pathways. When drawing, we actively use both sides of our brain, the right for creativity, and the left for logical thinking. This strengthens both and helps develop the ability to focus and think strategically.
Drawing, like many other art forms, aids in relaxation and stress relief by forcing us to pay attention to details in the environment, which mimics the experience of mediation. Spontaneous drawing is also said to relieve stress and improve focus, as it relieves your brain from the strain of continuous concentration. This, in turn, allows you to relax.
The more we draw, the more our hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills develop. With continuous line-drawing artists are forced to rely on their instincts and to trust the movement of their hands instead relying on memorized drawing patterns, improving overall coordination.
The neuroscience suggests drawing can help Activities that require intense concentration, like learning a language, help stave off dementia, memory loss and other brain deterioration. Creativity in and of itself is important for remaining healthy, remaining connected to yourself and connected to the world.

My work expresses my love of nature and my observations of flowers and fauna. I use the abstract language of bold color, varying textures, shapes, and pattern to interpret the geometric and organic forms. I take a tiny sliver of an element that inspires me and magnify it to highlight, and show off its complexities, intricate layers, patterns and design.
