The work of art therapists is praised by many as being one of the most expressive and healing forms of therapy for a variety of ailments, and Sara Roizen is taking an interesting approach to the art form by utilizing records as canvas. Created using old, discarded records and acrylic paint, Roizen uses the circular nature of the medium to create mandalas; works of art that are utilized in prayer and meditation.

Speaking of her work, Roizen explains, "I work spontaneously and intuitively in the studio in a form of dialogue between myself and the materials. This process is a constant self-exploration, often revealing feelings of which I was previously unaware." This expressive yet sombre approach makes the work and the method of doing so that much more amazing.
