Paintings for the Soul

I’m inspired by the deeper levels and layers of the human being; the emotions, sensations and feelings going on beneath the surface. I believe that these deeper aspects of people is what drives their daily habits, routines and behaviors. I’ve spent many years diving into the depths of my own being and I draw on that depth and experience to create Paintings for the Soul.

Paintings for the Soul are more than just beautiful pieces of abstract art. They’re multilayered paintings energized with an intention to heal and grow. Just as you’re multi-layered, so are these paintings. Each painting couples with a poem that speaks to the theme of the painting. Some theme examples are; self-expression, self-love, abundance and connection with something greater.

As I paint I take pictures of these layers and provide these pictures to you, along with a copy of the poem, when purchased. I’ve enjoyed hearing many touching stories about how these paintings and poems have impacted the buyer.

Now it’s your turn! Check out the different series below. Do any of the paintings and poems speak to your heart? These paintings make great gifts for loved ones and you can even get a soul painting for your pet! Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or to inquire about your own soul painting.

It all began when I was floating.

Allow me to explain…

 file_003When I was 25 years old I’d been going through an emotionally fatiguing few months. In fact, I was perceiving the stress of life to be so intense that I was having at least one panic attack a month.

The most significant attack happened as I was walking to work one day. Everything seemed fine until the “black cloud” happened. You see, up until then I thought cartoons weren’t real. However, you remember that black rain cloud that would come flying into the scene and start raining on one of the characters? That happened!

What felt like a black cloud of rain began hovering over me, pouring raindrops of fear, worry, and anxiety onto my head. I actually dropped to my knees for about 15 seconds before the cloud hovered out of the scene and I was able to get up and muster the energy to keep moving forward.

This level of worry and fear continued on for months until I had enough. I made two choices to get better.

First, I walked into my doctor’s office and told them, and I quote, “I’ll take any pill. I don’t want to feel this way anymore. I don’t care about side effects. Just make me feel better.”

Second, I walked into my first yoga class. And after fumbling through the postures for 55 minutes I was guided to lay down in “Shavasana” which is the final 5-minute resting posture. This is when “it” happened. As I closed my eyes I felt my body tingling. Then I lifted off the yoga mat and was floating.

Now, was my body actually lifting off the mat? I’ll let you decide for yourself. Either way, in that moment, I discovered the power of holistic healing. That little slice of beauty that happened as I was laying on that mat was enough to open my eyes to another way.

Ever since I’ve been on a quest for the best and most efficient forms of self-healing or as I’d like to say, self-evolution.

The short version of the next 14 years included becoming a yoga teacher, yoga teacher trainer, Ayurvedic practitioner, meditation teacher as well as spending time studying shamanism, reiki and many other forms of holistic healing.

And yes…spacer

I immediately replaced medication with meditation.spacer

As you can see, I believe in learning through experience. I’ve always said, “Watch it, discuss it, read it and learn. But most importantly, feel.”

Based on my amazing spiritual journey and experiences I’ve put together a powerful system for self-healing and evolution. My passion is supporting people in accessing the positive-power, love and bliss they carry within. I love assisting people in letting go of emotional weight that is simply not needed anymore.spacer

You want to know what I’m about? Here’s what I believe… 

• I believe everyone has the ability to efficiently evolve to their human potential. Which in turn increases their capacity to love, be happy and live their “truth”.

• I believe the positive changes begin happening as soon as one commits to this evolution.

• I believe that evolving is our right as humans and that the more we evolve the greater positive impact we have on the world and everyone in it.spacer
