Coming from a family of scientists, Helen Kagan PhD, was always fascinated by the left and right brain relationship. A holistic therapist and artist, she's developing her unique technique and style as “Healing Arts” which reflects her own deep view on Life, a desire to bridge Realities and heal the Past. Her “Healing Arts” is her unique way to integrate Fine Art and the Art of Healing. Helen believes that art as a powerful form of self-expression is a vehicle for emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being, and can enhance healing to those in need.
Helen was born in a cold Siberian winter in what then was the USSR. She grew up in a Communist State where oppression and control were a daily reality. In 1991 her quest for freedom led Helen to the US, whereto she brought her Jewish heritage, a couple of graduate degrees, and an unending thirst to explore the World and its meaning.
Mainly self-taught Helen's been painting for as long as she remembers herself, since 2005 does it professionally. She works with oils and acrylics, lately is experimenting with mixed media. There are always spiritual messages present in her art - being on a Journey, going towards the Light, awareness of 'Here and Now', and of course - 'j'oie de vivre'!
In her Artist Statement Helen says – “I believe that art heals. I believe in interconnectedness of physical, mental, and spiritual. I am a Healing Artist creating and sharing my unique art for inspiration, healing, transformation, and ... just for your good mood”.
She believes that tragedy, trauma and pain can be healed with beauty, positive energy, self-expression. She believes in mind-body-spirit connection and her passionate art is a statement of all her beliefs.
