Mindy Weisel’s upbringing as the only daughter of Auschwitz survivors has formed the backdrop for her lifelong quest, as an artist and author, of finding hope and light in the face of darkness. In her books, as well as her numerous exhibitions, she expresses her faith in the survival of beauty and the transformative power of art. Speaking from the heart, she is an articulate and moving speaker who inspires audiences to contemplate their own feelings and history – encouraging a fuller, deeper more creative life.
Touching Quiet: Reflections in Solitude, published in 2000, is an intimate journal of the creative process during Weisel’s painting fellowship at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. During this time, her powerful abstract paintings, as well as her journal writings, examined the impact that quiet, solitude and beauty can have in our lives. The book is inspiring to anyone seeking a greater measure of balance, harmony and creativity. Weisel’s book, The 7 Day Color Diet: The New Way to Health and Beauty, is a color-controlled eating program that she designed, including the most current information supplied by the National Cancer Institute on optimum health.
