I am thrilled to start up a new blog series theme: Artist Interviews.  In this blog series, I will be interviewing inspirational artists and will sharing these insightful and inspirational messages in a variety of ways that I look forward to launching soon!  For now, I am sharing the first interview of yours truly.  In 2014, I was interviewed by Art 4 All People as part of an art exhibition focused on arts and healing.

Here is the interview, short and sweet!

How would you describe Transformative Art? 

Transformative Art is art that reaches into the soul and acts as a mirror revealing the deep and rich inner beauty of the Self, as well as the shadow self.  It has the power to shift consciousness and not only raise the vibration of an individual, but shift the collective consciousness.

What inspires your own Art and what does Art mean to you? 

My own spiritual journey and quest for beauty, for what is true, and as a devotion to the Sacred is what informs and inspires my art practice.

In my experience, art serves as a visual response to the questions that one asks or that the collective is asking.  For example, questions about the nature of reality, what it means to be a Spiritual being having a human experience, or about what is possible in the human experience.

As an Artist what is the significance of doing Transformative Art in these times, in this century in the now?

If an individual feels the call to create and share their art with the world, the significance of doing Transformative art now is ad infinitum.  Art is a bridge between the mundane and the Sacred and has the capacity to bridge the gap of disparity between suffering and pure bliss. Artistic expression gives meaning and healing to the human condition.  Art is the glue of the Universe and provides a safe space for the Soul to rest and take refuge.  More than ever, art and artists serve as the foundation for the evolution of human consciousness.

“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimension.”

~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Happy Harvest season, Autumnal Equinox and New Moon Friday!  September was an amazing month, full of abundance, overflow and BIG quantum leaps in my world. How is YOUR world, how was your month?  How are you feeling?  What amazing transformations are evolving and leaning into?  I personally have been experiencing so many amazing moments, rich and textured emotions, new experiences and my outer world truly showing up to reflect my inner world.  Whew! Feeling Blessed Out!  Now, we have October on our heels…. we are in our new season of growth and expansion, trans-form-ation, and letting go/receiving.

What I have found to be very insightful are these words from Lena Stevens of The Power Path:“The theme for October is RESET- There are two faces to this month’s theme. The first one is the deconstruction, dissolving, taking offline, shutting down, turning off, letting go, letting down, and allowing things to fall apart.  The second is the re-booting, turning on, flipping the switch, restarting, reconstructing, solidifying, bringing online, resetting and refocus.”

I am choosing to take this time out and unplug, as well as allow this cycle and my own clear inner guidance and voice to reveal each step, each and every day.  One of the skills that I have been learning and practicing this year is being what Cass Phelps calls self referential.  This way of being is simply the art of following my own inner guidance, listening closely to what my innermost knowing and wisdom is telling me and following that implicitly.  Sometimes I will not have the clarity to “know” right away, and that is part of the journey and commitment to leading my life from a self referential orientation.  Waiting out the “pregnant pause” and observing the wave of emotion is the element required for me to allow the clarity to arise.  So beautiful, intriguing and wonder-ous!

As I sign off for now, I leave you with these words:  “It’s a time where we may find ourselves liberated from past conditioning, offered a pathway to really grow into the we-we-know-we-really-are-at-our-core”, Stephanie Gailing of Astrological Apothecary.
