For artist, Aleathia Brown, creativity is more than a way to share personal expression, it is a path of spirituality, a connection to God, a litmus test by which she gages her growth as a soul. Her vision is a poetic stream of realization that has been conceived by a lifetime of creative meditation, patience and internal strength.
Her art is expressed visually, verbally, in a variety of mediums, in performance and didactically in her teaching methodology, where she uses music, food and cues to calm students, encouraging them to take chances finding shapes and forms that are derived from within. And then to take action by using unfamiliar materials that produce surprising outcomes, thereby fostering new, and sometimes, surprising experiences.
