Alchemy of Colour
About the Artist
Barbara worked as a trained nurse in hospitals in Australia until 1989.
Her ability to recognise energy fields around people was always a sacred mystery for her.
Her developing artistic skills led her to open an Art Gallery in her local town and exhibit some of her paintings from the many exhibitions she had mounted.
During this time she was also studying Healing Touch ...an energy based method of hands on healing.
With the encouragement of the Healing Touch Foundation she formulated her own program for healing with colour based also around her skills in handpainting silk.
Barbara now works full time with her silk painting business and travels extensively through Australia and U.S.A. presenting her colour healing workshops
For Further information see Colour Therapy Academy of Australia.
At Alchemy of Colour we have 62 varied colour combinations for specific healing purposes.

A strong polyester thread is used to sew all garment seams.
About Our Dyes
