Paintings from the Innerwyze series
Art-quilt (detail image)
For several years a series of intricate mixed media paintings emerged as I intuitively followed where the paint, ink and graphite wanted to carry me. Each rendering offered an experience as I merged with the creative process itself. This powerful wordless imagery spoke to me on many levels as I interacted with these seemingly mysterious works. In 2020 I was inspired to create oracle cards from these paintings. In 2021 this imagery expanded yet again to be included in a textile series of art-quilts. Today I understand that this work came to heal and teach me a process I've come to call Creative Transmutation. This is the use of creative energy for personal exploration, understanding and healing. I share this process through my artwork as well as individual and semi-private sessions.
Intentionally, there are no words connected to the image-stories on the oracle cards, no symbolism to memorize or 'read'. Therefore ones first language of intuitive, direct knowledge is available as the cards are contemplated. Each person who approaches the cards will intuitively receive the awareness they are ready to explore about themselves or the situation they are looking into.
As the art-quilts emerged I surprisingly found myself expressing the current state of the world as it spun more and more away from 'the norm'. This was not the popular or politically correct version of what was transpiring, but an insightful perspective of the breakdown occurring in our world and the rebirth of what is to come. As always, I learned as I created and I listened to the messages that came. I continue to create that which rises to the surface to be expressed and I feel privileged to share this work with others.

Creative Transmutation is the use of creative energy for personal exploration, intuitive development, insight and healing. In this intuitive, co-creative process untapped or blocked energy is released and creatively redirected resulting in clarity, focus, personal insight and healing as well as highly personal artwork. If you'd like to use your creative energy in this way I share this process through individual sessions and semi-private classes in my central Texas studio. Here is a link to the class information on my studio website.
