These paintings are a passion project of mine, they are the marriage of my energy healing, craniosacral therapy training and abstract expressionist painting skills. The idea began a few years ago when I started having very clear and interesting visuals come to me during my sessions with massage clients.
My intuition became more vivid after my Reiki attunements, which opened up a flood of visions and sensations that inspired me to paint.
This project is the result of me translating these visions onto the canvas. My intention is to share the way I experience the human body with the viewer.
"Within my body are all the sacred places of the worlds, and the most profound pilgrimage I can ever make is within my own body." -Saraha
“My heart is tender. It is filled with grief and with love. I’m on the last page of a beautiful, adventurous, sometimes tragic, always lesson filled book. There is grief in the ending. It feels hard to close, to let go of, to move on, yet I must. A new book is awaiting. I feel scared and excited, full of hope and gratitude. Full of love for myself, for my path. My heart is tender. It is filled with grief and love.”

“Today in my heart space I sense a lot of anxiety, something feels stagnant. I deal with this feeling a lot, especially lately. It’s hard to put my finger on what it looks like, I guess green with lots of layers. Sometimes I feel a lot of calmness in my heart space, but today it feels like a lot of stuck energy that can’t get out.
I think I was more hoping to be in a joyful space while I was here, so I’m interested to see what comes out in the painting. I guess when I try to picture this space again I see a lot of green working layers with a lot of tension and energy.”

“I came to express a specific song. Do I have the courage and sensitivity to hear that song? I want to practice acceptance, compassion, forgiveness, and love. To meet myself in a way that I never thought possible. Forgive everything. Even myself. Practice makes the master. Meet the unknown with open arms and fearless power comes from within. I am the medicine.”

“I believe my soul belongs to God. I am a Christian, which by no means indicates I’m perfect, but I believe He who made me in His image is.
I believe the soul is our inner-most self. It is the place where our truth, authenticity, and all attributes of ourselves begins. If I used color to describe my soul, they would probably be a combination of orange (creativity) and blues. I know these don’t mesh well together, but the orange and creativity reflects me as a creative being, and called to create from God-also blue being a beginning such as water, sky, and fire. I think there’s blue in fire-well, it seems as though I’ve seen blue in fire-Apologies!”

“My heart feels open today. Ready to receive and offer love. There is a deep expansion and lightness to a transformation that is occurring. A trust and bond -a soulful bond- between me and another being. Blues of the ocean, a fluidity is present… there is a spiral-an expression of joy which lengthens vertically from my heart up and down my spine.”

"I feel two things calling-this profound, deep, mysterious bliss I've been experiencing... and a strong sensation in my root chakra/Yoni... I definitely feel reborn through this bliss - each day a gift, each day more awake, here, alive. In the bliss my breath deepens, I release and release, old me, old trauma (I hope). The bliss shape shifts but is always, well... blissful!"

"My soul is a wave of the ocean of the infinite, a small sparkly differentiation of the divine. Bright, energetic, and playful and strong. Rays of energy expanding across a peaceful enduring presence."

“My heart tends to be guarded, protected, shielded. Vulnerability is challenging, unless it’s with my children… it wants to be less armored and I can feel sort of a porous-ness to it.
Today my heart feels open and safe, trusting. Colors? Textures? Softness, lightness, spaciousness. Hmmmm…. Yellow? Turquoise? Happy colors. Hope. Blues, whites, organic, earthy, expansive”

Callum is only 11 months old. Working with a non-verbal, very young energy was quite a joy. He was very receptive, and simple in the guidance he gave me. He selected these colors himself, by playing alongside me with colored pencils. He was very curious about everything in the studio, his mother kept him safe while I gently listened to his soul and painted what I felt. He is an old soul with an artist's spirit.
“A soul is the body of who you are and your inner makings. Its determined based on life’s interactions and encounters.
My souls is multifaceted and balanced. Introverted/extroverted. It’s orange, pumpkin, purple, green, spooky, black, witchy. It is like a circle, with blue, teal, waves, flowing, and clouds. It is assertive, passionate, caring, loving, healthy, organized. My soul also reflects my love of family, friends, art, laughter, exercise, and cooking.”

“My heart feels very tender and sweet and vulnerable, and trapped in a cage of fear sometimes. Very red. There is a ball of fiber inside that I am unpicking… but actually, I think my heart is bright and shining and good and golden, but sometimes covered up by the fear, trauma… it is difficult for me to see and remember the brilliance of my heart, to recognize and allow and center that.”

“My heart is broken, yet I allow it to still be strong. For instance, a close friend and I talk often about affairs of the heart, like love and partners. She commented to me, "How can you still live such a full life with all that's happened?"
My heart is happy and sad at the same time. I asked the universe for something. The universe responded--I am amazed at its power. My vibration is high. I am ready for this. I can't see the color. She is still shy and a bit unsure. But she is vibrant and she feels.
The truth in my heart has been spoken and revealed. With that, there is tremendous growth. The end of secrets and the beginning to live in my truth-heart open-my heart is open. Pain is a part of a new beginning. A short sting in the process. A lovely introduction to let go and just be."

“Tell me about your heart…. This is a space of great potential… burning… smoldering, but chaotic—hidden behind barbed wire and broken glass and cupboards full of old dishes and memories that like to cling and bite but sometimes fly. It’s white and black and burns in balance and knows its space and feels at home in the sky—connected, one—a breath in an area of air and sometimes I get to inhale and be.”

“Today, my heart feels open. But kind of injured and heavy. I feel like it looks like a normal heart, with almost a yellowish bright gold, which feels consistent and long-standing for me. It feels injured because of being hurt recently, with the end of a short lived but incredible relationship with my best friend from school.
It’s not broken and still glows, because I’ve always been a loving and compassionate person, that’s my chosen career. I know I can heal the injury, it’s just that I’m still amidst the healing process.”
