ArtFromThePsychee - the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination from the human mind, conscious, and unconscious in visual form.
Inspiration for art as an expression of life is how Artfromthepsychee was created in 2005. However, artfromthepsychee remained dormant and unseen to others until 2014. A new passion for the beauty of life inspired Artfromthepsychee to surface and began a vision to share the artwork for a purpose.

ArtFromThePsychee was developed for three reasons:
Art can be very therapeutic. The artist is a psychotherapist who uses art to work with children and adults to find psychological healing within the storms life can create. Through artistic therapeutic expression many individuals also find their own purposes in life.
Artfromthepsychee was created to honor the memory of Archie Adams, the father of the artist, who passed away in 2011. Archie was a very talented artist who was an important person in the artist's life. The artist grew up watching her father create breath taking masterpieces and vowed to be able to follow in his footsteps one day.
Artfromthepsyche will partner with other local artists to sale their masterpeices. A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to local community charities and/or projects such as the "Revive the Reeves" project, Toys for Tots, Humble Heros, Special Olympics, and/or organizations who benefit local families.This is to honor a man who was completely selfless and upheld a high standard of integrity, honor, morals and values. Artfromthepsychee will continue to maintain these traits in all that it endeavors upon.
