La Huipilista Artspace, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, is presenting an exhibition of my recent and current work titled “Portals to the Soul.” You are cordially invited to join us as we open the exhibit on Friday, October 12 from 5 to 7 pm.

My exhibition is a visual narrative of my journey as an artist, offered through the lens of the divine feminine perspective: the heart and soul of experience. These works invite the viewer into a dreamscape of hidden portals that offer discovery of one’s own soul journey. Embedded symbols in individual pieces inspire the question, “What dreams are hidden inside the corners of your own heart?”

My approach to art is deeply connected to the expression of the divine feminine, psycho-spiritual studies and Intentional Creativity.  The dynamic approaches I use, such as art therapy, dream work, shadow and depth work are based on my ability to access the deeper realms of  personal and universal healing.

With this interactive installation, “Love Letters to the Children and Families” I am inviting visitors to share comments, wishes and letters for those currently impacted by the U.S. administration’s border separation policy. It is my intention is to create a collective field that supports and holds these families energetically in the arms of the Divine Mother.

Please feel free to create your own wishes with us. You can submit then here in the comments field and I will print them for adding to the grid in the gallery window.

“Portals to the Soul” continues though November 3rd.

Iconography Workshop with Father Damian Higgins 4/23/13-4/26/13 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Wow! What an incredible experience it was 2 weeks ago when Fr. Damian Higgins of Mendocino, CA graced us with his presence & “Classical Iconography Workshop!” Fr. Damian led us through not only the techniques & execution of completing our very own Icons from start to finish, but also gave us the background & significance of this ancient “Icon Writing” tradition.
