Aradia Lunabella

Miami Beach, Florida, USA

My work embodies the elements of the Sacred Feminine, of women’s strength, power, and wisdom. Painting Goddesses has been an ongoing longtime passion. My work as a water-colorist and collage artist is a testament to the power of the Goddess within. Without her, I feel impoverished. I need to paint her in order to connect with the sacred meaning of my life. For me, when the feminine way of knowing is honored through creativity and intuition, my life becomes more meaningful and joyful. The divine purpose of being alive is to create, it is how I transform myself and my world. By honoring the Divine Feminine through my work, I honor the Divine in myself. I empower myself spiritually, psychologically, emotionally, and physically so that I may reconnect with my inner Goddess.

“When the soul wants something to be known,
she throws out an image in front of her
and steps into it.”

This quote by Meister Eckhart was gifted to me recently by one of my sons. It has put my life of painting into perspective. In the past 40 years of painting, she has given me three such images in order to know myself. Woodlands, the trees and the spaces between them. The Kitchen, lit in the evening when the day’s work is done, and most recently, The Birch.

I saw these trees daily on the road between Salzburg and Freilassing, Germany. When I stopped to photograph them the image was made known to me.

The tree was held and supported by the landscape to each side. Nothing reflects my present consciousness more clearly than this image.

The tree is my body, the space holds this body, and we are gracefully becoming one and the same.The visual and visceral impact of this image can have a surprising effect on the viewer. The paintings are a mysterious mix of abstraction and representation.

I make this image in oil and watercolor and collage. I write about my experience of being a woman who paints, walks in the woods, and ponders and feels all of this life we are sharing and caring for on planet earth.

I am a mother of three home grown, home born amazing sons. I live in a beautiful part of the world, near the trees and mountains and fresh water.

Born – 1953
MFA in Painting, American University, Washington, DC – 1982
My original work can be seen in Studio 3 at River District Arts, Sperryville, VA

Dwora Fried

Los Angeles, California, USA

Powerful and provocative, and at times humorous, Dwora Fried’s mixed media captures people, places and emotions under glass — literally. Composed in wooden boxes with glass fronts, the pieces ask unsettling questions about identity, beliefs and space. They recreate imaginary scenes of displacement, entrapment and isolation. The confines of these small, wooden boxes allow the viewer to share in the intimate world of the artist. Fried has been working with boxes for over a decade.

K. Chavez

Orange County, California, USA

Nature, sex, and the human form are my muses. I surround myself with equines daily. They are known to be one of the most spiritual forms of nature known to man. Horses are incredibly humbling just as other forms of nature are. Watching and learning from these amazing creatures electrifies my imagination. Sex and the human form invigorates my entire being. I am completely consumed with understanding what makes the human being inspired and aroused in all forms.

Kalika Fortin

Boulder, Colorado, USA

In 2005, Kalika Fortin moved from the conservative Midwest into an ashram in Colorado. She was immersed in a new and beautiful world of meditation, service and devotional chanting. Captivated by the sweet, calming energy of the morning chants, as well as the lively evening kirtans, it became clear that bhakti yoga was her path. She enjoyed several years in Shoshoni Yoga Retreat’s resident band, Shiva’s Garden, before forming The Pushpams with Mira Gale and Kumara Etzel.

Her debut album, Flowers for Kali, honors traditions lost and found in a gentle offering of uplifting chants and intimate songs.

Tanya Sheikh

Atlanta, Georgia, USA

I am Magical Fairy Child invited into the Fullness of Herself through a journey of Awakening that commenced with the passing of my father, furthered by a kundalini awakening through sexual ecstasy which in turn led to the dark depths of anguish and back again. Along the way I morphed into a Woman who can stand in the light and in the shadow, who knows herself as Infinity and the Void therein. I hold space for others through my presence and my energy work to Remember Who They Are, allowing that which is not of essence and of truth to transform, dissolve, transmute. I hold space for the bliss of the Being to shine forth.

I write as an invitation into that which lies beyond the mundane, the bliss that can be touched upon if we slow down, listen and taste the truth of the moment.

Thank you for meeting me here.
