Moriah M. Mylod passionately pursued a Master of Arts in Art Therapy from Cedar Crest College in May 2016 and graduated from Cedar Crest College in 2013 with a B.A. in Art Therapy and a Minor in Art History-- where she was a recipient for the Howard Agar Memorial Prize for demonstration of significant ability in the studio arts. Today she continues to stay active in the studio arts where she primarily explores painting and other art materials as she grows as an artist and art therapist at her home studio, Birds in the Attics in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. Her artwork has been displayed on and off campus in under-graduate, graduate and post-graduate work. Moriah‘s “Soulscape” painting series had recently been on exhibit at Porter’s Pub in Easton, PA and her Earth Mandala Photography series is currently on exhibit at the Sister’s House in Historical Bethlehem, PA. Also, in 2017 Moriah was feautured in Lehigh Happening Magazine "Celebrating Creative Women in the Lehigh Valley." She currently practices as an Art Therapist facilitating art psychotherapy sessions at a trauma-informed treatment residency program in Somerset, New Jersey for adolescent mothers and adult mothers.
Moriah M. Mylod’s artwork is inspired by relationships to others, emotions, spaces, dreams, the spiritual, internal landscapes and learning the meaning and mystery of them. Most of all, her hope is to discover and share what the (unconscious and conscious) inner images are trying to say to the outer images and to bring pictorial imagery into fruition through emotionally materializing the moods- we hold as humans.
"The work of Mylod reveals to us, despite our segue to what many would say is a transhuman world, our dreams are what continue to sustain us. What Mylod's work leads us to is an awe of that imaginative, sensory perception which makes us ask questions of ourselves and each other. Perhaps this confrontation of ontology is necessary when challenging our conditions."
