ARTIST MEMBER Kim Desrosiers
An artist all her life, Kim’s first passion is art. Her mixed media collage tells a story, drawing viewers to connect their heart with its message. This wasn’t always the case as Kim suffered a long-term creative block due to an unexpected personal tragedy. Lack of motivation, inspiration and self doubt blocked the natural flow of her artistic expression.
During this languished season, Kim reconnected with her heart by attending a workshop in which scraps of papers were transformed into dynamic works of art. This assemblage of torn paper and pieces of imagery began her healing journey – piecing together her broken heart. Kim soon discovered the power of healing through art. When words fail art speaks.
Kim’s second passion is to restore hope and joy to the brokenhearted. Using the healing tools of grief loss therapy and artistic expression, Kim became a Certified Grief Recovery Method® Specialist and Art Sozo® Ministry Leader. She is an authentic guide, equipped to walk alongside those on their path to wholeness.
Kim Desrosiers is professionally affiliated with Patti C. Dunne, MA, LPC and Founder of The Healing Tree, LLC. A “dynamic-duo” they offer group recovery workshops in the local community. Kim also brings her creativity to The Healing Tree by leading clients into creative expressions, for when words are not enough. Additionally, she has years of experience teaching art to children and adults. She has worked in recreation therapy with the elderly. Kim is a nurturer, a deeply dedicated mother, prayer warrior and compassionate caregiver for many. In 2014, Kim founded Be Brave Art & Design Studio which offers graphic design services and a variety of art workshops.
Kim resides in Manchester, CT with her son and a spunky Jack Russell Terrier, Lilly, who you will often find underfoot nearest Kim’s easel.
