This series, “Energy of a Soul,” explores the impermanence of our lives on this plane and how important it is to strengthen your soul during each cycle of its existence and to take every experience as an opportunity to grow and learn and carry that wisdom on to its next cycle.
I love exploring the connections of all things, the miracle of life and its ability to go on in new and beautiful forms. The collection of consciousness and wisdom from the experiences gathered during a lifetime and thereafter.
This series of images was created using both graphite and pen and ink. I kept this style in black and white with a focus on simplicity of the soul, a calm meaningfully implemented construction of the human body as we were designed to be.
Everything in the human body has its specific purpose and meaning both during life and the process of decomposition during death. I wanted this amazing miracle to be seen in a clean and detailed perspective in black and white.
I start with sketching the piece in graphite and adding shades and tones, moving on to pen and ink in order to add detail and definition and finally splashes of color are added in watercolor to show the emotion and energy of the positive soul.
“The Story Continues” - This piece explains that with death also comes life. The end of this path is the beginning of the next one and one’s new story. The flower of life symbol from sacred geometry is embedded inside of the sunflower to represent longevity and the power and energy provided to nourish this new existence. The amethyst is a stone of protection and is helpful in purifying the mind and clearing of negative thoughts for the next journey in this circle of spirit.
“Release” (Skeleton) Release of emotions and spirit and the coming of new beginnings. Stripped to the bones, free and vulnerable. Being imbued with optimism, unlocking the secrets of wisdom once unknown to embark on new opportunities. The renewal that can be experienced in the immortality of the human soul.
“Power Is Held Within” - Your power is held within forever and always. Even after you have passed it is held within your soul. One can meditate and heal and facilitate the intuition to guide your spirit on its journey. Positive power radiates and feeds life.
“Transitory Soul” - About one’s transition from this plane to the next. One’s print has been left on this plane forever but will move to the new plane to thrive based on the positive vibrations exhibited in the current life. Our attitudes and beliefs and how we think are manifested in our soul and everything and everyone around us. Our soul transitions and does not die and our vibrations radiate and are influential in this time and space as well as on other planes of existence.
My artwork is very personal to me as I am constantly enamoured by the miraculous of the human body, nature, emotions and karma. I am amazed by how our soul exists not only in this one current life that we have but can go on in many more, in many other forms. How we choose to act and manifest in this life has so many repercussions for not only our state in this life but in our soul state as well.
