If light is in your heart, you will find your way home.

I have loved art ever since the day my German nanny gave me my first box of beeswax crayons at age three. She didn’t know it then, but that simple box of rainbow-colored crayons opened me to worlds of magic and miracles that would one day save my life.
 

For as long as I can remember, art has been my sanctuary, my safe haven giving me the strength and shelter necessary to see the inexplicable beauty and irrepressible joy in the world even in the midst suffering and violence. Art reveals to me secret kingdoms overflowing with wondrous and infinite possibility. It opens portals to profound healing and transcendent grace. Creating art deeply connects me to my voice, my heart, and the Divine. 

 Art saves me.

 And because I know to the center of my soul that art offers all these gifts and more, I paint not only for myself, but for you, too. For me, making art is a sacred practice connecting me to all that is most holy in myself and the Universe. Each brushstroke is a prayer. Each painting a blessing. Each offering an act of devotion.

 

 

 

As a mystic, healer, visionary artist, and devoted teacher, my purpose is to become a channel of the Divine, surrendering to Spirit and allowing the luminous Mystery to flow through my heart and hands. Whether I am photographing a lotus flower, designing a mandala, or painting an image of the Sacred Feminine, everything I create is a reflection of the Divine, a physical manifestation of Spirit designed to call you home to a remembrance of what is most deep and true within you. My art and my teachings are blessings from my heart to yours. I offer them as gifts of healing, inspiration, and illumination. My prayer is that my words, actions, and creations are infused with the energy of unconditional love. It is my deepest hope that my art offers maps home to your heart, awakening you to the highest expression of your divinity, your most cherished dreams, and your hidden soul-treasures. I hope my paintings inspire your beautiful heart to dance.
 

Blessings on your journey home, Dear One. May it light your heart with joy.

 
Love,
Katherine

 My Creative Process

 

I am a poet, writer, photographer, and painter. A life-long art lover, all forms of creative expression delight me, but it is the catalytic and captivating power of Intentional Creativity that enchants my soul and holds my heart. Developed by rebel visionaries and master artists, Shiloh Sophia McCloud and Sue Hoya Sellars, this transformational method of intuitive painting is magical.

 

Intentional Creativity is a dance between my heart and the Divine. I begin each painting with an intention, a blessing, and a prayer. Guided by a sense of wonder and a spirit of inquiry, my first layer is an abstract underpainting that sets the energy for my vision quest and opens a portal allowing me to access the language of my soul and the voice of my heart. Through dreams, journeys, and meditations, I travel between the worlds, gathering symbols, colors, images, and healing medicine to share in my paintings.

 

The painting process requires the cultivation of intuition, deep listening, and trust in the creative process. It is a joyful journey of self-discovery and a courageous dive into the Mystery. I often lose all sense of time and self when I paint. When I invite the Divine to flow through me, I am frequently astonished by the images that reveal themselves through the magic portal of my canvas, as if they emerge from an ancient and sacred source deep within the secret heart of the universe.

My vibrant, multi-layered paintings are soul-journeys and conversations with the Divine. They reflect my joyful heart, deep gratitude for life, and awe for the natural world. They honor my love of mysticism, my fascination with symbolism, and my reverence for sacred geometry. Perhaps, most of all, they embody my devotion to the Divine, my love of the Goddess, and my commitment to celebrating the Sacred Feminine in us all. For me, these creative journeys produce powerful healing, life-saving transformation, and liberated joy. They awaken me to life’s deep holiness. Sharing these gifts with the world through my paintings and my teachings is my sacred soul-calling. I am forever grateful and profoundly honored to walk this path.

 

May the light of your soul guide you.
