Biography

Discover inner peace and connect to your soul with the captivating meditative art of Patricia Fitzgerald, Healing Creations. Painted by Patricia in her beautiful old courtyard studio in Marlay Park, Dublin, she intuitively draws on the healing energies of her dreams to create unique mandalas and artwork. “Symbols emerge as if from nowhere, and when these symbols are courted as though they are wild animals in a forest, the symbols slowly begin to reveal their gold as wisdom. I have found the mandala process to heighten dream activity and for me both are somehow inextricably linked. I sometimes paint my dreams into mandalas or at other times the mandalas will initiate dreams.”

It’s a universal story, and in that, she uses nostalgia as a tool to trigger the past of the viewer, and the past of society. Enhancing little things from the every day life, making them more interesting is something Andrea is passionate about.
