Althea Knight Artist- Healer
Althea Knight. Is an Artist and healer, Here work is eclectic, electric and radiates great vibes. Her work which she considers "outsider art" or "Art Brut" this is work created by folks not formerly trained ,but with a high aesthetic value.
She has combined her Healing practices with creative work, I actually think she found a way to work holistically, There is not a place where art starts and healing ends. I spoke to her.
