Art for a peaceful and flourishing world

Breaking The Ocean

We are stardust, intelligence and order; gold formed from the dying stars only to fall from the firmament to the birthing earth. Particles condense and a journey unfolds.  We are all naturally interconnected; it’s so vast we cannot grasp or understand. Ours is a story so archetypal, so universal, yet so profoundly unique and precious. First and last breaths are like bookends of the story....

Eye in the Universe

The power to create illusions is vastly more significant to understand than to understand reality. J. Krishnamurti Last year I was at a 10-day meditation retreat. One evening I was overcome with the idea that someone had committed suicide in one of the cabins. I saw all the signs, it all made sense in my mind to the point that it became so real; I didn’t sleep all night, I was sweating and...

Why I am optimistic

This painting called Integral Map 1.0 talks about our human evolution. We are certainly going through interesting times. The only way I can relax and be with the turbulent flow is by looking at the current events on a larger scale. We do need to change our habits and behaviour on a global level… and unfortunately, most of us were not going to change without sh*t hitting the fan. We are...

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...

The Creation Of Herstory

The Creation Of Herstory

I am always in the process of working on three or four pieces of commissioned artwork. Most of the time it is for businesses but sometimes it is more personal like in this case. Below is the first email my client sent when she approached me to co-create this painting: “I dream of a painting about the woman that is still hiding in me. I want it to have a symbolic place in my life. To give...

Unveiling Vaginas!

Unveiling Vaginas!

It started with my vagina. Don’t get too excited, I am just talking about my first vagina painting that I created about 7 years ago! This image came to me in a vivid dream a few nights in a row. I felt it was strongly connected to Sheila Na Gig, the Celtic goddess of fertility. Her images are found throughout the Celtic culture in early Christian and Pagan art and sculpture. A few years...

One Of My Paintings… Lost And (Not) Found

One Of My Paintings… Lost And (Not) Found

I was on my way back from Hungary where I exhibited my art at the Integral European Conference. I had been travelling from early in the morning with a heavy suitcase, a backpack and my rolled painting in hand. Every time I got out of the taxi, sat down at the airport café, boarded in the plane, etc… all day I checked and doubled checked that all three items were with me at every move....

Creation of the painting Integral Map 1.0

Creation of the painting Integral Map 1.0

I have to admit that it took me a long time to grasp the full scope of Integral theory (and I am still working on it!). It is primarily  a comprehensive map of a complex whole while being beautifully simple and elegant. Many of my themes already explored the stages of one’s life in a spiral motion so when I came across the integral world it felt only natural to tackle the ambitious task of...

He Awakens and She Awakens

He Awakens and She Awakens

My two oil paintings She Awakens and He Awakens are sold! I am especially happy because they were created to be together and a collector in France saw that!   I would like to share a few photos that shows the evolution of these paintings as I created them. He Awakens started as a small ink pen drawing, my main idea was to have an eye and the cosmos with a multiplication and fractal feeling....
