Making Art with Intention:
New Book by Patty Magee
On First Friday, May 5th - The Saint Augustine Beach Art Studio and Gallery is proud to present Patty Magee as the featured artist of the month for May 2023. The studio will host a book signing event for Magee's new book, Making Art with Intention, from 5-8 pm. The event is free and includes art, music, snacks, and beverages.
Making Art with Intention is a collection of field notes from a holistic nurse practice, exploring how creative expression can produce a therapeutic caring-healing environment. Magee, an RN and MA graduate from the University of Florida in Arts in Medicine, advocates merging her two interests into one for a more holistic nursing role. Her book discusses the correlation between connecting art and wellness and the therapeutic merit of art as another way of knowing and caring for the patient.
Magee's artist statement is that she is an ambassador for "connecting art and wellness." Early in her childhood, she knew her calling was to become an artist and nurse. She has seen firsthand how the creative art process can reduce stress on our bodies and help adults become less inhibited about illness. Magee has exhibited her art in several galleries and fundraising events, including the University of North Florida Gallery, Bank of America Tower, Habitat for Humanity, and Nursing scholarship, among others.
