“I am deeply in love and fascinated by the intuitive painting approach and its journey...I continually find myself in awe and wonder by its power to open up and transform, heal and bring new insights....It has indeed power!
I love seeing the students beam with joy, as they open up to their creative power and go exploring with all of their heart and senses ... These are precious moments I live for....To feel their Joy and Passion... To witness the Joy and Happiness sparkle in their eyes...."
WHY YOU MAKE YOUR ART, WHAT INSPIRES OR DRIVES YOU TO MAKE IT, WHY PEOPLE SHOULD CARE, WHAT IT SIGNIFIES OR REPRESENTS, WHAT IT COMMUNICATES, WHAT'S UNIQUE OR SPECIAL ABOUT HOW YOU MAKE IT, and briefly, WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU.
CREATING FROM SOUL
LOVE, VISION, PASSION, PLAYFULNESS, HEARTCENTEREDNESS, CREATIVITY are the Pillars which align me to my Soul, my Essence and life purpose.
When I am Aware and Present in the moment, living from my Soul and Heart, I am feeling the most alive, juicy, beautiful, free, loving, happy... fullfilled. I feel Whole. I Am Home.
I am here to walk in the Beauty and Sovereignty of my Soul, to walk as Love, Be Love...Be a Servant of Love.
I am here to uplift and inspire you to do the same.
I believe we are All connected - and as you heal yourself you help heal the Whole. WE are truly ONE.
“THE ALCHEMY OF LOVE
You come to us
from another world
From beyond the stars
and void of space.
Of unimaginable beauty,
Bringing with you
the essence of love
You transform all
who are touched by you.
troubles, and sorrows
dissolve in your presence,
to ruler and ruled
To peasant and king
You bewilder us
with your grace.
You are the master alchemist.
You light the fire of love
in earth and sky
in heart and soul
of every being.
Through your love
existence and nonexistence merge.
All opposites unite.
All that is profane
becomes sacred again.
A WOMAN'S POWER
I have always been drawn to portrait Woman....The Beauty and Soul of A Woman. Woman, The Feminine Soul is deeply mystical, divine, wild, soft, tender, compassionate, creative, peaceful, powerful, loving, seeing, ancient and endlessly deep and wise. She is also unpredicatable, destructive, chaotic, messy, untamed. She contains ALL emotions. I paint The Many Faces of A Woman, The Feminine Soul in all her many-faceted aspects, expressions, archetypes.
Woman, The Feminine Aspect, has been suppressed, neglected, silenced, misused and abused through thousands of years, and still is in many cultures. I feel deeply passionate about serving The Divine Feminine in whatever way I can, and help Women (and Men) to awaken to, connect with and reclaim their true Power, Wisdom and Beauty, and allow their inner Feminine to be heard. We, as humans, living on this planet, needs The Divine Feminine, Her Wild Lioness Heart - Her deep Intuition and limitless, Unconditional LOve to survive.
Making Soul Art leads me on an adventurous Journey into the Great Mystery and the Heart of Love. It is a fascinating process of surrrendering, opening, letting go, allowing, inner listening and TRUSTING. Trusting that I am led all the way, through all the phases of a creation. One could also see it as the art of deeply surrendering to God/Goddess within, the Great Mystery, the Great Unknown.
My art making is also a spiritual practice as I constantly have to empty myself - over and over again - so I may become a vessel, a midwife for this wild river of inspiration, creation, beauty, Knowing moving through me, and allow it to be birthed into visible creative expressions.
Each creation is an unique expression of my journey into the Mystery, carrying its own unique medicine, frequencies and message.
Each journey is an adventurous experience, leading me into deeper Knowing and discovery of my Self, of all that I am, in all dimensions.
I never know what will happen or what I will end up with. It truly is a journey into the Unknown, and this constantly fascinates me and pulls me in, also when it takes all my courage to continue diving into the Mystery.
Because I might be facing all kinds of emotions, old beliefs, behavioral patterns, wounds might surface. Unconscious becomes conscious, I experience my light, my darkness, my woundedness and my "wholeness"/holiness:
All is mirrored to me through the art making. I find myself being the mirror and the one who is being mirrored at the same time. This power Soul Art holds to serve as a tool of awakening, alchemizing and expanding consciousness is beyond words fascinating and powerful.
As I let myself become an instrument, allowing a Higher Wisdom to lead me and flow through me, my hands move, I paint, I choose colors and tools - and I do it with the trust that follows a deep surrendering, listening and allowing....
As I follow and honor what I feel called and drawn to do in every moment I trust all will be well - that the journey will bring its gift, its blessing, its healing medicine to me.
Even during stages where all seems messy and/or without sense, and I don't have a clue about where I am going; If I keep going, keep doing, keep listening, keep following my inner guidance, I know I will arrive at a place where I will harvest......Beauty and wisdom, pearls and diamonds, beautiful treasures, healing medicine will be found.
This is Soul Art as it is truly my own Soul and the Divine Feminine leading me and expressing herself through me. I become but a vessel for what wants to move through me, for what wants to be birthed through me.
As human beings we are experiencing truly extraordinary times; a great shift in consciousness is taking place on Mother Earth, and we are seeing old structures and paradigms falling apart and dying.
New ways of living, being, seeing and creating are being called for. My passion and purpose is to help co-create the New and bring Heaven on Earth. I see this happening by the Rising of The Divine Feminine and the Awakening of Soul and Heart.
“Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet,
Through Love all that is copper will be gold,
Through Love all dregs will become wine,
Through Love all pain will turn to medicine."
