Commission a one-of-a-kind oil painting that reflects your highest self. The part of you that is warrior, goddess, medicine person, fierce, and a gift to the world. You are so much more than the smiling face we see on social media and in family photo albums. You are a spiritual being that has survived many hard things and become stronger, wiser, and more beautiful and interesting. My process is simple, magical, and healing. We schedule an interview where I explore and reveal the deep parts of you that long to be expressed, celebrated and shared. I will provide you the healing questionaire if you give your email below. I listen deeply to your answers, connect to spiritual helpers and benefactors and see what wants to come forth. Next, I suggest some poses for the portrait and we do a photo session over ZOOM and/or with the help of someone you trust. Then I go to work creating from a respectful, spiritual place allowing source and your benefactors to flow through to the canvas.
I am an artist and a healer. I love to combine pungent oily paint and truth. I have a B.A. in Fine Art from State University of New York. My passion is to shine light on the beauty of feminine power and wisdom through art, story, ancient practice and how I live my life. We are free to speak our truth, to be who and how we choose to be and to show up as authentic changemakers. I choose to make change peacefully and fiercely. I found euphoric freedom in painting the original Medicine Women/Goddesses. This freedom had fleeting moments of reverie but was mostly filled with grounded guidance, discovery and intrigue. I look forward to co-creating your InnerGoddess Portrait.
The painting you see here of my daughter and me came to be when I saw there were no iconic paintings of a mother and child of differing race. As I was preparing for Sophia's arrival, I looked around my home and saw several portraits of mother and child (these served as fertility emblems as I spent six years yearning for motherhood) and all of them were white mothers and babes. It makes sense, Sophia's father and I are white. It made me sad that the art work on our walls did not reflect my love, intrigue and respect for cultures that were different from mine, and here I was getting ready to adopt and raise a multi-race beautiful baby girl.
Eighteen years later, my passion for encouraging and creating portraits of families and children of differing race is just as strong. I would be honored to commission a painting of you and your child or children.
The original Goddess/Medicine Women panels and Sophia and Me are not for sale. Please use them as inspiration for the beautiful, magical and unique portrait we can co-create for you!
Email is the best way to contact me with authentic curiosity and/or inquiries.
