Touching hearts and empowering lives through art therapy

Award-winning Australian Artist Kim Staples has been sharing her joy for the art by providing an art therapy space for many to find their light at the end of the tunnel.

Kim provides a safe, open and warm environment to support people to achieve, improve and develop healthy emotions through the arts. She does art therapy with youths, adults, Alzheimer's sufferers, people with disabilities, special needs and other challenging conditions in the community. Kim's special needs students are under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and they have assistance to access community social and recreational activities on individual weekdays.

Having experienced how art has helped people cope with emotional, mental, physical issues as well as developmental needs and disorders, it is no wonder that Kim is so passionate about sharing her art.
