Paint with me

Intuition is my guide and painting is like a dance that expresses itself through color, movement, shapes and form in a magnificent emergence on the canvas. 

Creating Beauty is a doorway to healing.
Serving Beauty through art is my life work.
Sharing the remembrance of Beauty with others is my Joy.

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am inspired by the triumphant human spirit. My art is dedicated to the path of the heart, and the vision of global peace for the World Soul.

Like nature Itself, we move through cycles of death and rebirth, and creativity serves these transitions. 

My art often depicts feminine imagery as a universal symbol of re-generation.  Each painting is created as a Blessing, transmitting storied wisdom in hopes to inspire a remembrance of the goodness and bounty of life.

I am fascinated by the spaces between the physical world and the mysterious spirit realm. This quality of spirit is conveyed in my art through soft, undefined places and edges. As I create, I access intuition, instinct, and lived wisdom.

My process involves many layers embedded into the ground of the canvas, allowing for an emergence of form over time. It honors the natural cycles of death – the letting go phase, in order to honor a new revelation and rebirth. 

The canvas captures a conversation of ‘soul talk’, speaking a language of its own. I listen intently, recording what I ‘hear’ by layering color and shapes, producing transparent effects, and allowing organic beauty to emerge. 

 

Flora combines 2 decades of painting experience with an M.A. in Counseling Psychology, bodywork therapy, work as an education director, and seminar leader to infuse her teaching and painting style with a deep connection to mind, body, and spirit.

In 2014 Flora began teaching the “art of allowing”, an Intuitive-based painting approach which empowers students to create from the intelligence of their own inner Guidance.

Flora’s art is in collections around the world, and has been featured for Awakening Women Institute, Treesisters.org, Horizon’s Magazine, and licensed by Blue Angel Publishing.

She facilitates online courses, international retreats, and leads a vibrant Facebook community of artists.
