About The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS website
The website at serves as a catalyst for healing and raises awareness for positive change. We believe that art has the power to heal, inspire, provoke, challenge and offer hope.  It holds the power to ignite the flame in our hearts and transform our minds.

“The Healing Power of ART In Honor of Nature” exhibition runs from May 20, 2021  through July 20, 2021.

The purpose of this exhibition is two fold: to promote extraordinary nature-inspired artists to our international audience; and to raise awareness about the importance of honoring, preserving and protecting our natural environment.  Through art, we can spread the word that nature and biodiversity need our attention. This exhibition aims to inspire positive change in that direction.

Statements From the 3 Artists Whose Art is Shown Above
Peter N. Van Giesen:
My art is the result of sporadic surges of energy that percolate into my consciousness. I attempt to explore the dynamics of tension and elasticity, the interplay of light and darkness, the interconnected energy of the perpetual motion of the natural world.

Sandra Belitza-Vazquez: I have long known and understood that in nature is the preservation of the world. Everything depends on the natural world for survival, but humans have threatened and destroyed parts of it. As an artist, I have a responsibility to highlight the importance of maintaining nature’s balance. I express the awe-inspiring beauty I see in nature through my photography, hoping to heal mind and body and awaken man’s awareness of the need to preserve the natural world and our survival.

Anne Stine: My artwork expresses the celebration of nature and the renewal of life with the intention of drawing attention to the preservation of our planet. I want people to view nature through the eyes of a child, full of awe and wonder, to help recapture the often forgotten connection to Mother Earth. I feel encaustic allows me to express the intensity, fluidity, and textures found in nature more realistically than any other medium, and adds a unique tactile experience.
