Art for a peaceful and flourishing world

The AGO: A leader ahead of their time

The AGO: A leader ahead of their time

When I started my art career I decided that the contemporary art world was not for me. Despite not fitting in the surrounding art scene, with hard work, determination and internet I found ways to build my own following. I organized my own exhibitions and people came to them. I’ve been making a living from my art for 12 years and have shown my work all over the planet. Until a few years ago...

What Are Your Artistic Influences?

What Are Your Artistic Influences?

I am often asked this question when I meet journalists, potential clients, or collectors. I used to be scared of this question because it was a matter that I had never really considered when venturing into my art career. For me the art is what emerged from ‘preparing the ground’: As a young adult I committed myself to live a life that is essentially focused on being vibrant, healthy,...

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...

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...

From Visionary Art To Integral Art

From Visionary Art To Integral Art

One of the first articles I wrote on my blog was entitled ‘Finding my family in the art world’. In 10 years working full time on my art I have realized now that visionary art in the art world is still avant-garde and is not well represented in galleries or museums around the globe. We do have our own movement and prestigious exhibitions are hosted by various curators and visionary...

My connection to the word “spirituality”

My connection to the word “spirituality”

As I am writing this article I am immersed in what I feel is the  most spiritual place: nature. I am camping on a point, on a lake among the spectacular colours of autumn in Ontario, Canada. Last time my husband went to this spot, I love what he said when he came back: “Gaia, I feel like I have been on a meditation retreat, but this is not it; It is when we meditate that we feel  like it...

Married and happy. The support of a lifetime for my art. The 12 keys of our successful relationship.

Married and happy. The support of a lifetime for my art.  The 12 keys of our successful relationship.

I often remind my husband that without his support, his encouragement and the foundation of our relationship, I would most likely have never been an artist. Here we are today, 20 years later after we met on a bus backpacking in Morocco. Meeting couples that stay together for a long time and that are happy is increasingly rare. Passing the 20 year mark since our meeting this year makes me reflect...

What Got Me Into The World Of Mandalas?

What Got Me Into The World Of Mandalas?

When I first started to show my art I would have people asking me “Oh! You paint mandalas? Do you teach mandala workshops?” To tell you the truth I knew nothing about mandalas then, all I had done is paint circle images! After being told this so many times I started looking into it. It is quite surprising to realise that there are so many people teaching about mandalas all over...
