My Creative Journey as an Artist

BY FATIMA ARGUN
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

"Paintings are like children-- it's hard to say which one you love the most," so says artist Fatima Argun, as she shares her colorful and vibrant paintings and the inspirations behind them. She shows how she tries to balance colors, shapes, and textures, and explains the various sources of inspiration that give her works a special quality: the richness of the Turkish culture, Rumi's poetry, and the rhythms of music.

Art Follows Life

BY TESSA HECK
@ VOL 4 ON APR 05, 2018

Art can lead all over the place. It has led painter Tessa Heck from the rural to the urban (and back again), from the noncommercial to the monetary, from introspection to examination. Sometimes art is a journey and, as Tessa's story shows, sometimes that journey leads home. And sometimes it's a journey walked in red cowboy boots.

Being in the Creative Flow

BY CINDY TAYLOR CLARK
@ VOL 27 ON APR 27, 2018

I have made art in many different forms. Sometimes not even in a physical way, but just in an observation, a prayer of gratitude. A joy welling up in my heart. Now after years of designing greeting cards, watercolors, free sketching, and channeled art for Fiber Art and quilting, I am embracing the Color of Women Method of intuitive painting. A 13 step Method of accessing your Wisdom (Muse) with magic brushes on canvas and paper.

What drew me to this method is the integrated flow of the process of intention, sacred ritual, feminine and archetype symbolism with journaling to call forth parts of my sacred self for healing and communication.  I share and teach this method to assist woman and girls on their path to more self worth and joy.

Flowing Stillness of Bog Bodies

BY LIDIJA VUKOVIC
@ VOL 1 ON SEP 21, 2018

The paintings Lidija Vukovic creates are shaped by the idea of Bog bodies, the ancient human remains that have been long preserved and discovered in Bog’s wetlands in Northern Europe, Great Britain and Ireland. She also integrates her experience with three-dimensional artwork. Through her work she seeks to connect the human body and memories, to represent the organic world as emotions still living within grass and branches. These emotions scream to be noticed and never forgotten. Nature shows the short life spans of living beings. But the dynamic existence of every shape connects us to the memory of these beings.
