I feel the importance and a sense of drive towards all things that remind Human Beings of the Beauty, of Love, Hope and Compassion. As we truly remember who we are.....there can be a sense of fulness that drives away selfishness and greed and brings forward Self Awareness, Love and Kindness.
It is with this in mind that I am enthused in preparing for upcoming fashion show..."Awaken"! I knew I wanted to be involved the moment I saw the title of this year's show! It struck a chord....a melody....and plucked on my Heart Strings because the message, to my perception is that each of us individually have this opportunity to "awaken" to the reality of how precious this Journey of Life is....and how integral a part of Nature each of us are. Domini Anne produced a show two years ago that left me speechless and overwhelmed as it brought me a feeling of the Sacred and evoking an ancient feeling of connectedness to nature.
It brings me such inspiration now to see my paintings printed on dresses of varied styles. Each painting depicts some aspect of our Journey here and our oneness with Nature and the Universe. Along with the wearable art comes a signed post card with a photo of the original painting along with a description. My hope is that anyone who chooses to wear these images is reminded of their own connection and oneness with Nature and feels empowered as the Blessed and powerful Being they are.
Please let me know if you'd like to come by my studio & gallery in the Redwoods! It's a wonderful place to visit, enjoy nature while perusing my art collection, wearable art and maybe even have your Essence Portrait created.
*If you see anything either on this website or on Facebook that you'd like to order please
email me with style and size.
I will soon be posting more photos of styles, paintings and pricing so it'll be simple.
Meanwhile if you just cannot wait and want to order a dress, jacket, pants, or bag
please let me know so I can get it to you!!!
Sending out so much LOVE to YOU.....Sofanya
I’m so very pleased and excited to welcome you to my new and improved website and blog!
I’ve been feeling “the call” so strongly as I am filled with desire to share about Life, Art and the Journey we all share. My desire is to share the reality that “Life IS the Art”, that we are Nature and not separate from it and that all things are connected in the Universe. This can serve as a basis of inspiration and a reminder to find this moment of stillness within, where we recognize our Self in the pure energy that is Life and the center from which all things emerge.
Beginning a painting is a journey that to me is like Life each day. We begin with a new possibility, a sacred journey and a new opportunity. Generally it can be both exciting and a bit frightening as we enter the unknown. Once the colors and texture is begun it’s invigorating and suddenly you feel like you can fly....until...the mind comes in and the “judger”, our ego or conditioning chimes in with doubt and fear. In order to move forward there’s a choice once again....to keep going! A new layer of experience where information, experience, new colors mix, learning happens. There are so many amazing layers and opportunities to discover in each courageous endeavor into a new canvas. Often my paintings are layered with imagery and if one can be still and peer inside the layers there may be a journey to discover by gleaning from your own perceptions and perspective.
This is the journey inside The Journey...a holograph of time and space.
We all have gifts and talents...we are multi faceted and layered. I love to encourage the step towards whatever lights you up. You are in the right “place” when you follow your Inspiration and from my experience Life, the Universe will provide all that you need in order to use your Gifts & Talents and this creates a perfect and natural cycle as in nature. The seed is planted and nurtured with sunshine and water. It grows and bears fruit which nourishes growth and on it goes...the perfection of Nature....is what we are. On that note....please feel free to reserve your space at any of my upcoming Art & Creativity Session! Whether a class for a couple of hours or an all day workshop....you’ll enjoy exploring your creativity through painting here with me in the beautiful Redwood Forest.
