Soul-Crafting in Paint
I came across the term "soul-crafting" while diving into Shamanic teachings and it stuck to me like peanut butter on toast. It inspired me to work towards creating paintings that are in direct connection with the person I am working with and not relative to any previous artwork I have created. It has become the process of removing my ego from someone else's story and truly creating what THEY need to have created.
Through direct connection with whoever I am painting I journey into the imaginal realms of color, light, and story telling in a way that makes me want to shake my tail feathers in the studio. Every person I have been/am fortunate to work with gives me the gift of their authenticity and vulnerability as we redefine the creative process between artist + client.
