Life Transition Art Workshop on April 1st

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...

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

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...

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...

The Messages Of Wild Woman

The Messages Of Wild Woman

Wild Woman archetype and story represents the purest most primal mystical life. Her total connection with the elements, her response to the call despite of the challenges, her confidence and trust, coupled with her vulnerability and sensitivity: For me all these are aspects of a dedicated life on the way to be free and...

The Secret To Abundance (From An Artist!)

The Secret To Abundance (From An Artist!)

Now let’s be straight forward: I simply hate these kind of titles but in life I can actually see the point when I always felt broke and when, next, I felt abundance. I want to talk about this subject because this theme of ‘being broke’ is such an issue for most artists, and as I said, this was a problem I had too. The truth is when the shift happened, my income didn’t...

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...

Article in the Reiki News magazine

Article in the Reiki News magazine

Exactly 10 years ago I was officially starting my art career and one of my first emails was in reaching out to William Lee Rand to possibly illustrate the Reiki News.  It was really joyful when I received a positive response and my regular contribution to the magazine started. At this point of my life my acquaintance with Reiki was not extensive. I had just taken a level 1 course and I...

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...

Is It Heartbreaking To Sell An Original Painting

Is It Heartbreaking To Sell An Original Painting

Before I was an artist I always assumed that letting go of a piece of art would be heartbreaking for the creator. I was surprised that for myself it wasn’t so. I remember the first piece of art I ever sold. I exhibited 6 of my ‘funky mushrooms paintings’ at a little private art event and sold one of them. I was ecstatic! I even woke my parents up in the middle of their night...

Facebook is a great tool for artists – PART 2: Tips and tricks I have learned

When I started using facebook I quickly realized that my effort and time spent on facebook was not rewarding and effective. I paid a local marketing expert that specializes in social media to teach me individually about all the tricks of the trade (her name is Lynn Martin from Mark Us Marketing) . We ended up spending 5 hours together and she taught me how to bring my client database into...

I have been painting and presenting my work professionally to the world for 10 years now and I am just starting to really understand who I am and what my art is trying to convey. I feel my life journey and artistic career are an example of what ‘living your dream’ could mean. At a personal level, I have let go of the regular routine job life, I have been home with both my husband and...
