HeART of Healing Gallery



HeART of Healing Gallery is the art component of the Integrative Medicine of Kentucky, owned by fiber artist and healer, Dr. Christi Bonds Garrett. Christi has a special interest (and huge collection!) of Kuna molas and vintage kimono.  She is especially drawn to fiber art and textiles that make reference to the healing arts, thus many of her molas depict images of curative plants, medicine men and women, and scenes where patients are being healed.

Mission: to incorporate the arts into the healing process.

Christi is a member of the Paducah Fiber Artists.  Her quilts often make reference to Chinese or Native American medicine.

  1. I love your theme of healing textiles. I have my eye on the psychedelic turtle mola.


“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
