ΧΕΙΡΟΠΟΙΗΤΑ ΕΙΔΗ ΔΩΡΩΝ

I was born and raised in a suburb of Athens in Greece.
Several years ago I started dealing with various creations wanting not to stress about a health problem I was facing.It was a health problem that was directly affected by my psychological state.Αfter a while I overcame the health problem I had and realized that what healed me was the creation.
Ιn the beginning, the objects I made decorated my house. Αs time went on and as I was getting better I started gift some of my creations to friends.Seeing how much they liked these creations I decided to start selling them.
I love what I do and I hope you see it in my work.

Thank you for visiting my store and reading my story.

****The Healing Power Of Art
Posted on May 29, 2018 by Henry Ford Health System Staff

Whether you toil over an oil canvas or doodle mindlessly on a page, research suggests the act of creating art has powerful healing properties. In a study published in the journal Art Therapy, three-quarters of participants experienced lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol during their 45-minute art-making session – regardless of previous art experience.

“If you can pinch clay or hold a pencil, if you can touch, see, smell or hear, art is for you,” says Mallory Montgomery, an art therapist at Henry Ford Health System. “Through art, even people who don’t view themselves as creative end up reconnecting to that childlike sense of play and enjoyment they had when they got their first box of crayons in kindergarten.”

How Art Heals
Here, we ask Montgomery about how art works its magic on both body and mind.

Q: How does art contribute to healing?

A: Art is healing because it forces you to forge a connection between your mind and your body. Unlike exercise, which works your body, or meditation, which clears your mind, art-making accesses both mind and body to promote healing. Every time you sit down to write a song or paint a picture, you’re using mental processes in a physically engaging activity.

Even if you feel like you’re not artistic or creative, art therapy is still a powerful healing tool. The key is breaking through the glass boxes we create for ourselves. “I encourage people to start small with something like a coloring sheet or a simple origami bird,” says Montgomery. “Art therapy is about having fun through self-exploration – not winning an art prize.”

You can even expand beyond “traditional art.” Play with weird materials like cardboard, old clothing or quilting fabric or broaden your definition beyond visual art to include creative endeavors like movement, music or the written word.
