Welcome to Mask Atelier
Atelier is a French word meaning workshop or studio. Mask Atelier offers an opportunity to explore the world of masks.
Mask Atelier is a place to discover the many facets of ourselves through the conception, creation and embodiment of masks. My approach in working with masks combines visual arts, journaling, creative writing, spoken word, movement, presentation and expressive arts. I bend and shape my experience in mask to reveal the essential beauty of a character, an aspect of a story or Fairy Tale, or an abstract concept or idea come to life. Through mask-work, imagination and creativity are realized in magical ways.
Everyone possesses unique and beautiful gifts. Mask Atelier is a way to call, shape, integrate and own these gifts using masks. Here are a few of the questions I am exploring in my mask journey.
- How can masks help us or inform us?
- How can we express through mask the untouchable mystery of our Souls?
- How can we reveal our beauty to the world?
- How can masks serve us in our mission and purpose?
Please also see my Blog for a documentation of my Creative Research Inquiry on masks where I ask the question: "How can masks aid in self-insight and potential transformation?"
I welcome you into the magic and mystery of masks and invite you to explore.
