Hello, all. I am aspiring to blog more. Life and work is a constant process to improve on the day before. Today’s post is about what I have been building up to over the past year when I founded my new business, Art Soul Living.

Here’s an overview of Art Soul Living, its classes; and, specifically, the INSPIRE TAG, which is used as a foundational concept in my business.

In order to inspire the art within you, Art Soul Living classes provide an opportunity to slow down and reflect in a quiet, safe space that promotes the open flow of creativity.

Classes provide a time for self-discovery using mindfulness exercises and an exploration of a wide variety of art techniques.

The “INSPIRE TAG” was created as a way to connect with yourself and others through art-making.

A key element of the “INSPIRE TAG” is the use of affirmations as a way to empower, encourage and uplift one’s soul.

The “INSPIRE TAG” is a mini-canvas for you to express your inner-artist.

Why Art Soul Living?

I am passionate about art.  Whatever the medium, I am passionate about creating and sharing it with others.  I love teaching others to slow down and make time to tap into their inner creativity.  I feel it opens them up to be more of their “true self” by allowing creativity to flow.  Art is not a simple answer, it is a process of making – digging deeper, and getting into the flow.  The greatest reward is the “light bulb moment”, seeing the smile and knowing that a soul has been touched.  I find tremendous fulfillment in sharing my passions and in the knowledge that in doing so, I have positively influenced another person’s life.  I love helping others discover the joy of creating something and the realization that creativity is something they had within them all along just waiting to come out.

As in music, art touches the soul in a way that words and actions cannot.  Like unseen faith, art provides pleasure, bliss, joy, and happiness prompted from a source deep within.  I believe that creation can be a spiritual experience. These inner-promptings come from a higher place. For me, it’s called the Holy Spirit, the “one” who gives us talent and divine inspiration.

My passion at Art Soul Living is to bring people together, providing an open space to tap into that higher place where the participant can discover something new about themselves through the process of “making”. This can be refreshing, relaxing, even healing. It is whatever you need it to be. All of this is within you.
