In her moving bilingual art memoir "Spiritual Healing with Art"
Fernandez showed how she was able to heal her spirit with art. With over
80 artworks and bilingual text (English/Spanish) the artist's life
story, including early emotional traumas and healing, unfolds in a
sequence of magnificent paintings, revealing the process by which the
artist emerged as an independent, open and free person.
This book is
rich with archetypal material--both in images and in words. The
author/artist has taken a deep inner journey to find that simply
expressing her emotions through art has helped her to heal. The art is
filled with shadow and light; the words are profound. It is a
fascinating testimony about the power of art as a healing resource.
