Manya Fabiniak: Artist, Author, Expressive Arts Therapist, Transformational Guide and Energy Healer

Welcome to my world, my vision, my bliss!

I have learned through personal experiences, as well as being an artist, author, and expressive arts therapist, that art can be a most powerful liberator. It liberates the creator as well as the one experiencing the creation. It expands our awareness and takes us from where we are to where we might long to be. Art comforts us and inspires, leading us ever to a new world of possibilities.

As a practitioner of healing through the moving of energy, I understand that all life is free-flowing energy filled with Divine unlimited potential. I have learned that the energies inherent in any experience of beauty, in any experience that delights the heart, can and will do very great things. This is what I strive for in my artwork and writing, to bring forth the compassionate nature of art, as it speaks the true language of the heart.

Art heals. Through art, we are nourished…we grow…we ascend…we become well. And this healing power of art is exponential, for as it raises any one of us, it automatically raises all the world. Art heals.  This is why I create. This is the loving force that inspires my world, as it has done for so many artists throughout time. My intention is always to push the boundaries of what subject matter, color, and technique can achieve in order to move the Soul.
