Artist Bio: Maya Polywjanyj

Maya is a Psychological Associate who has used the healing power of art therapy with hundreds of clients. She has recently opened a private practice in Kitchener May 2010.

“I have always been drawn to the power of color and form. My subject matter is diverse, as though I get pulled to do a piece. There is something quite liberating about non verbal modes of communication, it is a language that reaches into many realms of knowing. Much of my work involves themes around healing, self discovery and growth.
“Over the years my approach to art has moved more fully into emotional and intuitive expression in contrast to a more technical approach. In this vein, I have been experimenting with creating pieces that exude essence. My work has often been described as ‘moving’ and ‘beautiful’.”
