I am Feather a seeker, one of many faces and energies. I live learning to center in those collected ways of being which are me. My JOURNEY here is to Empower Older Women!
My life is a constant journey along a path that is my HeartPath. I seek the teachings in the roadblocks and as much as I am able, let my art, my Magic express that often. I walk with one foot in the physical world and one in the spiritual. The image above was an investigation of FIRE energy, of being a priestess of Sekhmet, a Firebird. I am also Hecate, the Triple Goddess of Maiden, Mother, Crone in energy, and investigate that thru writing and art. My teachings and my path come from the years of study I have done with Wise Women, especially the Sisterhood of the Shields and Lynn Andrews, Laura Hollick and Merlinda Arnold. This beautiful Mother Earth, my special partner, my children and friends and the breath taking night skies here in New Mexico are all my teachers; I thank and send blessings to each one.
My art grows from the teachings I receive, the awarenesses that subtly swim into my cells with many past life memories, These are the lessons I take on and try to share with others to ease their path in some way. I am an "Earth-rooted Dream flier". My art and my life are centered in my spiritual practice. I am able now to let go of more and more conventions and move into what once, I could not even have dreamed. I am a "Nu Icon" as Laura Holick has named it. I am a Compass for the Unknown, mapping new paradigms , new routes and strategies as I learn them from my own Journey. There is a perceptible shift when I connect to my Guidance, a rightness, a grace that fills the gaps of my efforts and I Live Beyond the Possible. My art lives, as Stanley Kunitz* once spoke of his poems doing, between the layers of my knowing. It has many symbols, meanings, words and sometimes even parts that are completely covered with only their energy lending itself to the finished piece.
In prosaic terms, I have graduated from two art colleges with degrees in art, taught art in schools and colleges, had one person shows, sold my work and won awards with my art. It has always been a core part of my life as has my mysticism. The spiritual surrealism that much of my current art now reflects is the outcome of a life time of immersion in both art and spirit until they cannot be separated from one another. I hope you enjoy these images, feel intrigued or blessed by them in someway. Please feel free to email me for further information about anything on the site or with questions you may have at.
Many Heart Blessings,
*Stanley Kunitz - a noted American poet who served two years (1974-1976) as the Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress (a precursor to the modern Poet Laureate program), and served another year as United States Poet Laureate in 2000.
