Since 2004, Brent Atwater has been creating Paintings That Heal, a collection of abstract images representing ailments from migraines and chronic fatigue, to anxiety and kidney infection.
She explains, The paintings have become diagnostic people are either drawn to or repelled by the paintings based on whats physically wrong with them. They respond to the energy frequency of the colors.
Atwater recalls a girl who responded strongly to her West Nile Virus painting, and it turned out the girls father had the deadly virus.
Another sickly man was able to lower his medication after spending a few months looking at Atwaters Lower Back Pain masterpiece.
But being such a powerful painter can lead to some embarrassing incidents.
Atwater says, I had my Irritable Bowel Syndrome painting hanging in the dining room, and I had a dinner guest say, You need to take that down, I cant eat with that thing up!
