Inspirational cards from our Featured Artist

art, inspiration, and fun
Karen Grabowski - Gypsy Song ArtWorks

"My artwork is a celebration of the joyful spirit that exists within each of us! The images combine vibrant colors and complex geometric designs with healing energies and symbolic designs. Through these, I endeavor to bring a message of hope to those who view my works. They are about balance and symmetry, about seeking that place of equilibrium within ourselves, and about letting go enough of the practical real-world existence to truly see the beauty that we are in the universe." www.karengrabowski.com

Painting From Within
Laurel Schwartz

“My art, the images, I wait, I listen…they emerge. My paintings seem to come from nothing. I show up at the canvas and wait. Wait for a color, to be drawn to an area, to be informed. They are birthed between the lines of my journals. It’s all there. Pleasure, struggle, fluidity, then, pure delight as the image appears. The personal healing, expression, and self discovery I experience through my painting process continues to amaze me and has been life changing. I offer my work and my story as inspiration. Inspiration to others, particularly women, who are aching to remember themselves. That they find the courage to go on the hunt for their truth.” www.herselfstudio.com



Art to Feed the Soul
Judith Shaw

Judith Shaw is a visionary artist who feels that there is a transformative, healing potential to art. Shaw, a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, has been interested in myth, culture and mystical studies all her life. This interest, combined with a deep spirituality, figures strongly in her work. Originally from New Orleans, she has traveled to many places, whose passion and bright colors have affected her palette and style.

The golden glow of the New Mexico landscape, where Judith currently resides, is reflected in her paintings. Combining her interest in myth and in sacred geometry, she has developed a style uniquely her own, which she calls "Mythic Expressionism". Judith's aspiration is to create art from the heart with the power to produce feelings of love, beauty, joy, and harmony; with the power to heal and to bless, with the power to open a portal to the timeless dimension of the sacred. www.judithshawgallery.com



Meditations on Nature
Virginia Daley

"During my illness, the process of painting became a way to focus my mind on
the healing harmony inherent in my subjects: reflections in water, the strength
of an oak weathering a harsh season, the nonresistant rest of winter. The act of
creating, symbolic in itself, kept me in the now and allowed me to escape, moment
by moment, from fear and anxiety.

"I want to share my work with others as a resource for guided imagery and
calming contemplation: to offer Nature for Nurture." www.virginiadaley.com



Visionary Art
Alex Grey

Alex Grey is best known for his paintings which “X-ray” multiple dimensions of reality, interweaving physical and biological anatomy with psychic and spiritual energies. Grey’s visual meditation on the nature of life and consciousness, the subject of his art, is contained in three books. His two monographs, Sacred Mirrors and Transfigurations, follow the history of Grey's artistic life. The Mission of Art reflects on art as a spiritual practice. Grey’s world renowned career includes exhibitions and keynote addresses from Basel, to Tokyo, to Sao Paulo, and features on the Discovery Channel, in Newsweek and Time Magazine. Grey’s art has been used on albums for the multi-platiinum bands Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Tool, and String Cheese Incident. Grey's most outstanding and widely appreciated works of transformative art can been seen in New York City at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, a long term exhibition in New York City. www.alexgrey.com

“Grey’s vision of a flawed but perfectible mankind stands as an antidote to the cynicism and spiritual malaise prevalent in much contemporary art.” New York Times

Images of Inspiration, Imagination and Light
Tracy Kelly

"I am constantly inspired, guided and taught by Mother Nature to slow
down, to see with new eyes, and to open my heart to the beauty, wonder,
and serenity that surround me. This has connected me, not only to my own
spirit, but to the spirit of Life as well. With each photo that I take,
my goal is to capture one moment in time that reflects an energy, a
feeling or a spirit that inspires, heals and brings a sense of magic.
From my heart to yours... " www.tracykellyphotography.com.

Prints, Mixed Media
David Jansheski

My work addresses the broad themes of Beauty, Mystery and Spirit. Working from an intuitive place I allow my visual experience to guide me, while paying attention to what I am naturally drawn to. Over time I have trained my perception to see my surroundings through the framework of these themes.

My search for, and creation of Beauty is an ongoing activity. It frames what I see. I have always been naturally curious, and this curiosity has become a foundation to a way of seeing. I am intrigued by the visually sensuous: a certain color or texture, bold or subtle yet fascinating and engaging. www.jansheskiarts.com

Folk Art
Jack Beverland/Mr. B

An Idaho native who moved to Florida as a young boy, Mr. B is a self-taught Southern folk artist who has a distinct style. In 1987 a car accident left him with head injuries, resulting in Uncinate Seizures and Spinal Bifida. At his brother's suggestion, Mr. B started to paint, and his emotional life translated itself through paint. Each of Mr. B's paintings begins with a word or phrase like "Corporate Hog Boss," "Abandon," or "The Difference a Man Makes." His current work focuses on bucolic scenes of southern rural life, fantastic utopian animal scenes, and biblical scenes like Noah's Ark and the Garden of Eden.

Jack Beverland said he never planned out his art career -- it just happened. For four years he has been invited to exhibit his paintings at the Kentucky Festival of the Arts in Alabama and for three years he has been invited to the Riverfest Art Festival in Georgia. But it is his exhibit at the OK Harris Gallery in the SoHo district of New York City - a contemporary gallery - that is perhaps the biggest surprise. His work is for sale through his web site: mr-b-folkartist.com.
