Maris Gilbert

My paintings of landscapes explore color, light and spirit.

Blues and greens dominate my palette because of their life giving and healing properties. My larger than life figure/tree paintings explore movement, nature and the human figure. I have been especially interested in the how Climate Change is affecting our world, and my home state of Florida.

I am an artist and a full time Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a specialty in infant and early childhood mental health. I have 15 years experience working with individual adults, children ages 0-6 and the adults who care for them, and with school age children. I use art therapy, play therapy and family therapy to support.

My art is all about healing. Healing myself, our world and others I teach.
