Paint with me

Check out my newest classes at www.artofallowingacademy.com 

Art is my spiritual practice. As I connect to deeper levels of intimacy with soul, my paintings spontaneously arise. I trust the Process.

Art is a miraculous gift that provides direct access to the complex and vast feminine psyche. Intuition is my guide as I follow the dance with the Great Mystery. Painting is a love affair that expresses itself through color, movement, shapes and form in a magnificent unfolding on the canvas. It’s a miraculous mirror that allows our deepest Essence and highest truths to be revealed.

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, the vision of global peace and restoring the Soul of the World.

I believe we go through cycles of death and rebirth within the soul, and creativity is a spiritual tool that serves these transitions. Art is a healing energy which requires  Attention to honor what is present.

My art a celebration of life with feminine imagery. ‘Woman’ is a universal symbol of life generation.  Each painting is created as a Blessing, transmitting deep wisdom, determination, and devotional love.

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 the inner gifts of intuition, instinct, and lived wisdom.

My process reflects a woman’s journey into the psyche to honor what is dying, retrieve lost aspects of self that have been abandoned, and clear room for the emergence of greater divine force to move through.  It honors the courage required to create new life based on new consciousness. 

The canvas captures a conversation of ‘soul talk’, speaking a language of its own. I listen intently to the whispered messages, recording what I ‘hear’ by layering color and shapes, producing transparent effects, and allowing organic beauty to emerge. The image becomes a translation of symbolism  embedded with healing energy.

Painting from this deep source of inspiration is available to everyone. I offer classes that teach women how to access the powerful realm of Intuition and Wisdom through my approach of “Allowing”. Leading transformational painting journeys is my Soul’s work …My hope is that my art and teaching function as a mirror for other souls to find refuge, inspiration and empowerment for their own soul journey.
