Mystical Landscapes: A Revelation

Mystical Landscapes: A Revelation

I’ve been a professional artist for over 10 years now and this emerging period of my career has been mainly focused on ‘finding my family in the art world’. I’ve written a few articles on this process but the truth is that this search keeps unfolding. Earlier this year the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) put on an exhibition called Mystical Landscapes. I was already excited about the title but it became almost like a revelation to me when I heard  Katharine Lochnan, curator of the exhibition, talk on a CBC program called...

Integral City: Sponsor of my Solo Show in Boulder, Colorado

I am thrilled to have Integral City as a sponsor of this catalog. Our work is intimately connected: having graduated as an architect I’ve studied urban planning and have always naturally recognized when cities are well thought out, evidently affecting the quality of lives and communities positively. The work of Marilyn Hamilton is truly aesthetic as it brings the intelligence of nature into the heart of the dialogue for building our cities of the future. When we talk so much about global ecology and sustainability it is an absolute necessity...

Getting Out Of The Box!

Getting Out Of The Box!

  I just went for a walk in the forest of the Canadian Shield right behind my home. It was a beautiful warm autumn day, so I spent time laying on a granite rock looking at the passing clouds. In the clouds I saw a lobster, a dragon, a pacman eating a little fluff and other fun things. We all do that. Whenever we see something, our mind automatically wants to make associations, we can’t help it, the mind just does it. It’s like when we hear a new musician, most of us will say ‘oh that’s sounds a lot like x’. Why...

An Ayurvedic Yoga Doula Logo

“I’ve met Gaia’s art through a magazine and an exhibition in Paris. I felt connected to her sacred women paintings. It reflects my activity as a Ayurvedic therapist for women and a yoga doula. It was beautiful to both create and listen to each others ideas. I’m really happy about the result, it is so much ME !! The painting is now in my office and it is really precious. Thanks again Gaia for this special heart to heart connection !” Aurélie Cros,...

Oracle cards: The Sacred Path Of The Body

This card deck invites women to a reconciliation with their body, to love it, to appreciate it and discover its deep resources which are often forgotten. It is an invaluable tool to know oneself and one’s body. These oracle cards open the door so that we return to self-love and sacred sexuality. The box set includes 64 cards that illustrate various “powers” and a 180 page color booklet.  Each “power” comes with a key to understand, a message, a ritual, an action for the day and a positive affirmation.    ...

Decision leads to a life worth living – Article in the Packet and Times, Orillia, Canada

They pulled over on the side of the road and looked into each other’s eyes. Don’t go back, Gaia Orion said to her husband, don’t go back to the factory. Spending the next 30 years in a job that didn’t mean anything, that was only a means of putting food on the table was scarier than the thought of walking away, of having no plans and three small children to feed. They’d never been afraid of life. Gaia had always possessed an underlying certainty that things would work out. Read more Kate Grigg, the author of the...

Life Transition Art Workshop on April 1st

In this workshop we will explore how we are often in transition in the midst of life learning and growing. Sometimes there are big life changes that tear us apart while sometime it is subtle and felt as a bubbling anxiety of being. Most of the time transition is uncomfortable but let’s get together to remind ourselves that it is always a door to new beginnings. “When the caterpillar ‘dies’, it has no idea that it is initiating the birth of a beautiful butterfly.” We will create artwork and see how it will show us patterns...

Cover Art for the Book ‘Cercles de femmes’ by Jeya Juillard

“I met Gaia at a festival of the Sacred Feminine in Montreal. We had a beautiful woman to woman connection. I loved her paintings and her art jewelry. Her palette of colors and the power emanating of each image talked to me in a universal language that is at service to humanity. I knew when we met that we would stay in touch and that I would contribute in promoting her talent. A few months later I was writing my book on shamanic women’s circles. When I realized I needed artwork for the cover I immediately thought about Gaia. Our...
