“To paint is to love again.”
Dear Friends, Colleagues, Family, and new acquaintances,
My interest in the creative arts began at my mother’s side as she drew, painted, sculpted, designed clothing, and made dolls and collages – often out of found materials. I have continued to learn, create, and experiment with art throughout my life, although my focus and interests have evolved and transitioned over the years. In my thirties, I wrote and performed music with my Martin guitar. Ten years later I was drawn to study mime with Samuel Avital and performed as a clown. By fifty my camera steered me to the Santa Monica College photography program, and I spent weekends in my bathroom dark room. Gestalt therapy theory and Arnold Beisser inspired my films in my sixties. I am so grateful to Julio Panisello (Barcelona/LA), Pat Hobaugh (Atlanta), and Natalia Spirale (Buenos Aires/Mallorca) all of whom supported my study of painting. Now in my 80s, this gallery of paintings is the culmination of all my studies and practice.
Sparked by environment and circumstance, I have developed a new passion: helping raise money for Ukrainian therapists, themselves refugees, who are helping families and children with PTSD and other mental health issues arising from the invasion of their country and their need to settle in Poland.
Through December 2023, I am offering these paintings for sale donating half of the purchase price to the foundation supporting Ukrainian therapists. For purchase, please send an image of the painting to me with your address and phone number (in English) to Liv@LivEstrup.com.
