Arts, Artists, Artwork
As an artist, I seek out the sparks that awaken my soul, expressing an essence that is the interweaving of my inner world dancing with the outer world. Painting is my prayer, my celebration of mind, body and spirit engaged in life. I need to move when I paint, to dance my fingers into the paints and over the canvas, to be filled with the joy of this treasure hunt into my soul’s expression and the ongoing creation and re-creation of my life. When I was very young, my family called me “la philosophe”, the philosopher, because I have always been a deep SEE diver, a visionary and empath seeking to illuminate essences. I loved the kabbalistic stories of Divine Shards created when Divine Light poured in to create the world. The Light was so immense, it shattered the receiving vessels and out role is to reveal these hidden shards through acts of lovingkindness and service to the divine. For me, painting helps clear away the dust, dirt, and conclusions that keep me from seeing the Divine Shards. As I paint, glimpses of the Divine are revealed. I am not even sure how…sometimes, there is an image that flashes, sometimes a word or thought or, most often, if feels like invisible threads of connection light up and I am suddenly seeing things in a new light, a new way. I realize the ways the pieces are all part of the whole. I can gather the shards through loving kindness, intimate prayer (including art) and sacred service (including art) and fly to levels of connection to Source that set my heart on fire and my soul to flight. I am a child of Holocaust survivors. I believe within our wounds are the seeds for healing. For me, the heart-wrenching awareness of destructive ugliness brought out my soul’s longing for beauty. My path of healing has been through painting. I love to dance my fingers and brushes over my cosmic canvas to reveal and celebrate the sacredness hidden in the mundane, the Beauty in the brokenness. I paint to free wildness and truth and invite it to shine and blossom as a kaleidoscopically blossoming adventure. My intention is for my art to be a gateway reminding people to see the Beauty within and around them. I often paint the Divine Feminine and all She represents. I paint and teach with intentional creativity using prayer, symbolism and layers of energetic and creative processing, opening to the transformative power of creativity. My art has been exhibited in several shows in Las Vegas and shown at the United Nations.
