Soul Paintings and Prints
Feeling drawn to a piece of art is like seeing a bit of your inner landscape in form. It may speak to some part of you so strongly that you feel the need to have it in your life. I feel this is, in essence, a form of healing. Art expresses for us.
Everything you love "out there" in the world is a part of yourself - a mirror reflection of your inner being. It is self love. When you come into contact with a piece of art that lights your soul up, it is activating your Divine Essence.
I share my work because I believe feeling our true self is important. To see with our eyes how we feel inside has an incredible soul-settling effect. It can help us feel more at home in our world.
I invite you to explore my artwork and see if anything lights your soul up.
Commissioned Soul Paintings
This ceremonial process begins with us opening sacred space together, setting an intention and inviting your Soul to express itself through the painting.
I then intuitively paint what I am guided to with the intention that you receive the images, colours, shapes and energies that define and resonate with your deepest self.
The final artwork becomes as talisman, an object that holds the energy of your soul, which can assist you in maintaining a connection to your Divine Nature.
Oh my. My my my. The experience of witnessing a completed Soul Painting is something else. It's like it settles in to my body, anchors in to my being as I spend time with it. It shares wisdom with me, helps me to know more about myself and activates truths from within me. As I sit with this freshly completed piece, I am feeling the echo of the last year inside of me. Over this last year, I fully stepped into my real work as an intuitive healer and artist who experiences Spirits guidance through inner awareness and sacred art making. I didn't know exactly what that looked like but I just began. I painted all the time. I meditated, I created a website, I went to art fairs, I started a Soul Painting class. I went to intuitive fairs, I wrote newsletters and I kept painting. Through it all I came up against massive resistance and anxiety that took me down at times... I still do, and I keep going. This painting is showing and sharing something with me that speaks to me deeply... here I am, with a fully bloomed rose at my back, my love, my vision for my life's work in the darkness, the unmanifest realm. I have a foot through the doorway where my vision is blooming and there is life and vibrancy everywhere. I have literally being in a birthing process all year and the baby is coming through the portal from unmanifest to manifest. Mamma's, you know this place... it is not the easiest part of the journey, it is often the hardest. It often is where you want to give up, where you have to drawn from the last of your reserves to push that babe into the world. So here I go... this baby is coming through, I am stepping through the threshold and ready to see look my soul creation in the eyes fully. And so it is.
This is what is on my "in progress" easel right now.
There are times where I go a long time without painting. I get busy with being a mamma, with taking care of my sensitive body and spirit, and with the sometimes out of control wounded masculine that lives in me, who is all business all the time.
My latest painting landed this week, I call her "Haven".
This beauty took me along a winding road of radical trust, massive self doubt, an explosive exchange with my inner and outer child ( my daughter took a paint brush to it at one point... let's just say it was not my best parenting moment.)
Finally after much struggle, a break in the wild , murky, chaos occurred and it moved into this beautiful sunset of a painting.
My biggest reflection and truly the healing that came in for me was my exchange with my daughter during this process.
This painting started out as a sweet little image of a goddessy girl that was something of a practice session. I had just ordered a new book on painting faces and wanted to try out the techniques.
Ah, summer... so lovely, so full, so much "out there doing". Life is flourishing and we are inclined to be swept away by the energy of productivity that our earth and it's inhabitants are in full swing with.
Solstice love and blessings to you! I love the aliveness of this part of the year. The natural world is bursting with life and creativity and it certainly fuels my own dreams and creative happenings.
Have you ever looked at a piece of art and felt extremely agitated by it? Regardless of how lovely it is? That's what happened to me with this painting.
As a creative woman, it is essential for your creative energy to be flowing through whatever outlet you choose. Without this you begin to wither, you become unwell, relationships get difficult or you may find yourself depressed or anxious.
Dear Creative Woman,
Whether you are actively creating right now, or not, you know that you have art in you that wants to be expressed. Deep down you also know that your artistic process is life force and fuel for your Spirit. Your art is a form of healing for you and for others who come into contact with it.
