In my journey as an artist, I have loved creating books. From the very first ones I created for the little girls I babysat, to the volumes of art I’ve created for pregnancy.
Now that the magazine, Artfull Mother, has come to an end after 13 issues, I am feeling the call of my next book:
Glimpses of the Goddess
I’ve worked as a henna artist for almost 15 years now, with a growing focus on art that empowers women. I find that as I create this art, the goddess that is in each woman reveals herself. It is a magical thing to witness! Sometimes women already arrive fully embodied and we just have fun adding to her natural goddessness. Others are gently coaxed, they are shy or don’t ever express themselves as a goddess. As we talk and I adorn them, part of them opens up and even if it’s just shown in one photo, the goddess within is revealed.
What do I mean by goddess? I mean an empowered woman, standing in both her natural beauty and her honest truth. It is her brightest future, her highest path, which of course is different for each woman.
The Sacred Feminine Project that I’ve been running for a while has been revealing more and more women who are goddesses.
If you follow me on Facebook, you’ll hear about my model calls. Or, you can email me now and I can send out a email when I make the next call - there are a few each year. I’m not sure how long I will keep calling for models - the book itself will let me know when it’s complete (as usual). I am really seeking to represent the local community of women. I’m accepting all races, ages and sizes but I am especially looking for women over 50 as well as women of color.
