"I grew up in a cross-cultural family. Body Tales began as my survival lifeline. I love the way this art form opens a wealth of resources. We are touched and inspired by our commonalities and our differences. We humans have such a tremendous need to share our artistry and our passions. Sometimes it is not enough to write in a journal forever and have no one read it – not enough to dance alone to the gods. There is something about being seen, heard and appreciated – in community – that is tremendously affirming. My joy in this work is tapping into the miracle of the body – making way for our fierce and tender stories – our lunacy as well as our wisdom. We dance for relatedness and for freedom, for autonomy and for belonging."

"Creative expression has been a source of nourishment, therapy, safety and pleasure for me most of my life. For the last three years I have been moved to create self-portraits. My work is an exploration of the developing self in the context of the twisty strata of psyche, culture and history. I work with pen and ink, acrylics, collage and acrylic medium and am drawn to creating texture and depth with these mediums."

 

Tuyet-Lyn earned her MA in Expressive Arts Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies. She currently facilitates expressive art groups for women and serves as an intern at the Center For Creative Growth in Berkeley, CA.
