Creating Healing

Life happens and happens hard. Robin M. Gilliam uses creative expression to deal with tragic events, and not only heal and recover but find hope and strength to help others.  Join Mark and Carolyn as they talk with Robin about how she uses art and writing to heal herself and others.

Robin is an Annapolis, Maryland, indie artist and author. She created abstract collages to deal with her rape. Her artwork changed her from a victim to a survivor and helped make her passion for art and healing come true. She now shares her art and story to heal others.  Inspired to do more, she also wrote and published a novel, Gift of Desperation. The novel tells the story a young woman professional, who is a party girl by night, whose journey of self-discovery is aided by a female wounded warrior with her own story of trauma, tragedy, and triumph. Robin has used her artwork to build her novel.

Join Robin, Carolyn, and Mark as we show how creative expression fuels healing.
