ReimagineArt founder Amy Jarvis brings to the table over 20 years of experience managing and motivating people as a mental health professional, art teacher, and creative thinker. She became convinced of the imperative to bring the quietly powerful medium of art into the workplace for relational health and personal well-being after years of dialoguing with clients, family, and friends about the ongoing stressors and professional challenges of running successful businesses.
Knowing that art rejuvenates, recalibrates, clarifies, and connects, Amy enthusiastically shares her combined skills as a creative arts facilitator and relational health specialist with organizations that care as much about their people as they do about their product or services. Her focused approach, thoughtful insight, and ease with people make working with Amy a pleasure.
There is something about the doing of the arts that communicates their importance…. When people dig into the work of art, they no longer have to ask about its value because they know.
~Eric Booth, The Everyday Work of Art
