I was born in the city of Washington D.C. but was raised in the rural south. The Blue Ridge Mountains of central Virginia were the backdrop of my childhood home which was nestled in a forrest of cedar, white pine and red oak trees. As a child, I had an active imagination and spent hours making dolls out of old socks, yarn and mismatched buttons. I learned how to grow my own food, harvest produce and can it for the winter. In the summer, my brother and I would dirty our knees tasting honeysuckles and prick our fingers picking the sweetest blackberries for the tastiest pies. My love for creating grew into a love for the fine arts. I studied studio art in college and later received my graduate degree in Art Therapy from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. As an art therapist intern, I worked with rape and incest survivors, women and children affected by homelessness and domestic violence, and refugees from Cambodia and Kenya. Art therapy provides an avenue for those hurt by trauma to express themselves and find peace through the artistic process. I believe in the artististic process and its ability to offer awareness. Art heals. My respect for nature, hard work, and culture has inspired my imagery.

"Whoever wants to know something about me - as an artist which alone is significant - they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want."
Gustav Klimt

I believe in the power of the artistic process. Art is life and is the gateway to all knowing.

Art and Healing

2000, This workshop introduced educators and students to the healing properties in art. Rochele aided participants in creating visual imagery through their medium of choice. Workshop participants became familiar with guided imagery and meditation and were given ways to use these tools to reduce stress, emotional turmoil and physical ailments. Workshop was facilitated at Virginia State University to a group of educators and graduate students. Rochele presented this workshop along with her thesis and is loosely based on the book Art and Healing: Using Expressive Art to Heal Your Body, Mind, and Soul by Barbara Ganim
