Trish Vernazza traveled the world as an International Flight Attendant for Pan American World Airways, which peaked her interest in culture, religion, language and history. Upon the abrupt ending of this career, she decided to re-enter the educational system and received her undergraduate graduate degree in Art History and Sculpture, Masters in Feminist Clinical Psychology, Masters in Art Therapy and currently practices as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist and Art Therapist.
Over the years Trish has received many awards notably Who’s Who in American Women. She been published in over 25 Arts & Crafts Magazines, as well as in “Women, Art & Mental Illness” while working in the Bay Area Jails and mental health programs while sharing her experiences through her personal art works.
Her art has been displayed in various museums and collected by art lovers.
Trish explains, “Part of the purpose in my life is that I am human enough to serve as a prism for a universal story. Our experience is limited by the boundaries of our own consciousness and art making is a place that I can get around those limitations. I create to clear my mind of all external and internal debris. I strive to build a fluid bridge between the hand and mind so that they can become one voice that speaks to the moment. Creating art is my way of keeping a personal diary of the encounters that I have experienced in my life.”
