OFFICIALLY AVAILABLE! *Whispers of the Soul*

Alright everybody! The Art on the Wild Side: Into the Wilds Exhibition at the Phoenix Zoo is officially complete! I am so grateful to have sold a few pieces during the show, but luckily for all of you -- there are 10 out of the 15 left! I am about to embark on a new path in life (details to come soon), and would love for all of these pieces to go to great homes.


If one of my paintings speaks to you and you wish to purchase the piece, please contact me and we will make it happen.

 

Ease (2022). 12in x 12in. Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas. The iguana, a reptile of ease and contentment, reminds us to live our lives through stillness and observation. It is once we slow down and surrender to the ways of the Universe that we will know a life of satisfaction, ease, and tranquility.

Patience

(2022). 20in x 20in. Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas.

As vehicles of deities with supernatural powers, wolves remind us to nurture our loyalty and strong family ties through intuition, love, empathy, understanding, flexibility, and curiosity. It is up to us to cultivate the wolf of patience and courage to fulfill our natural openness, warmth, and intelligence.

Joy

(2022). 10in x 10in (each). Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas.

Light and joy, the hummingbird reminds us to live life to the fullest and enjoy the simple pleasures with hope and gratitude. It is with one singular Source, represented by the flower of life, that all creation is brought into being and nonbeing. The flight of the hummingbird reminds us that the spirits of loved ones near and far are always with us and that the presence of this Source never disappears.

Hope

(2022). 10in x 10in (each). Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas.

Wisdom

(2022). 11in x 14in. Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas.

The endless knot, a knot with no beginning or end, symbolizes the endless wisdom and compassion of the Buddha. The owl, regarded in high order and a messenger from the deities, represents the wisdom we attain as we continue through samsara, the endless cyclic existence one suffers before attaining enlightenment. It is with the compassion of the Buddha that we remember to have endless compassion for ourselves as we grow and heal in our individual paths to freedom.

Gratitude (2022).20in x 24in. Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas. As inspiration to cultivate our gratitude for nature, the bear also gives us the courage to evolve and the ability to be open-minded. We are encouraged to trust our instincts, be protective of our faith, and understand that we are part of this natural world around us, one with the Universe, and keepers of the wild.

Dharma (2022). 24in x 30in. Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas. In Buddhism, lions are signified as the dharma protectors, supporting the throne of the Buddha and his bodhisattvas, beings who have attained a high level of spiritual enlightenment. They symbolize the wisdom, fearlessness, and divine pride of the bodhisattvas who have made a vow to renounce the happiness of the highest enlightenment and remain in this working world until all sentient beings are free from suffering. As we work through our dharma, the nature of reality and one's conformity to duty and nature, we can rest in the protection of the lion and move forward in this world with wisdom, kindness, and compassion.

Love (2022). 11in x 14in. Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas. With our hands over our heart center, we recite the mantra "hum" to bring in love, protection, and kindness, and to purify ourselves of hatred and anger. The flamingo reminds us to celebrate the beauty, romance, and fun in life; to dedicate ourselves to unconditional love and compassion.

Intuition (2022). 16in x 20in. Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas. The white tiger reminds us to trust our intuition and clairvoyance, gifts we are all born with, but quickly suppress to fit into our Western culture. If we fearlessly follow the path of the white tiger with unwavering courage through spiritual enlightenment, we can regain these remarkable gifts and once again achieve balance between body, mind, and spirit.

Clarity (2022). 12in x 16in. Watercolor and Ink Mixed Media on Canvas. Boldness, communication, and following your inner voice; the toucan reminds us that our unique voices and talents have great value, encouraging us to contribute to our own medicines to the world in new creative ways. The unalome represents our journey through life toward the ultimate freedom of mental clarity and enlightenment. It is only once we celebrate our uniqueness, and bring forth our talents and voices in kindness and truth, that we can fully develop the clarity we need to grow into who we are meant to be.

 

I'd like to send out a huge sense of gratitude to the Phoenix Zoo for giving me the opportunity to create this collection and show my work with two amazing artists. They gave me the space to grow as a person, grow in my work, and cultivate a new sense of who I want to be and what I want to bring to the art world.
