Pamela Matthews

The Visionary Art of Pamela Matthews may be seen on book and magazine covers, on CD inlays and as greeting cards, bookmarks, prints, posters, Goddess cards and Tarot cards which are available in more than 30 countries.

Pamela began painting visionary surrealism after a mystical experience on a beach in her native New Zealand - interestingly, archetypes were apparent in her work before she became aware of the writings of Carl Jung.

She studied the pre-Raphaelites in London where Burne-Jones became a great influence, and she also greatly admires Da Vinci and Boticelli of the Florentine school.

Pamela’s work is marketed under the auspices of Grail Graphics Ltd, a business partnership with soul mate husband Richard Symons, who she literally painted into her life as part of a conscious effort in the late 1980’s to attract a spiritually compatible male into her life.

“Reconciliation of the Sexes” depicts this soul-mate quest, and (happily!) “Ecstasy” continues to accurately reflect their relationship, and is evidently popular with lovers young and not-so-young everywhere, with more than 20,000 reproductions of this image now sold all around the world.

A wide selection of Pamela’s work, including the two seminal images referred to above, may be viewed on her website
www.grail.co.nz; and she welcomes contact on pamela@grail.co.nz

Rachel C Thompson

is a writer, illustrator, political cartoonist, water color artist and human rights activist living in Bethlehem, PA.
"Most of my fine art is metaphorical in nature, and speaks to social issues via common or invented subjects. None of my watercolors are simply pretty pictures."
Her art is visionary in that she uses art to make unpopular social statements and/or observations using comfortable, non-threatening objects to draw the viewer in. Onlookers will see that the art work's title, and pictured objects, is often incongruent. The objective is for the viewer to think deeper. Rachel also uses multiple layers of symbolism in her art. "My hope is that my art will inspire people to see past the surface, not only in my art but in all things. My art's message is to seek deeper meaning in all aspects of life."

Self taught— Rachel has painted watercolor for 35 years in a verity of watercolor styles and techniques. Her work includes portraits, traditional subjects, fantasy and esoteric illustrations.

David Harrington

I currently reside in Portland, Oregon with my wife Dawn and two sons. I have lived here for nearly twenty years now, but am originally from the East Coast.

The piece here is from my collection of short, spiritually-charged allegories written over a twenty year period. These stories are rich with symbolism and strong characterization, but are both figurative and literal.

Vincent G. Madrid

As a young boy, I always had visions. Visions of what seemed at the time to be simple flights of fancy… The usual fantasy world of demons and wizards and flying horses…
My father used to take me to the park and set up an easel and do still life paintings while I played on the swings. I never really paid attention to what he was doing at the time, but that simple act was to have a huge impact on me in the future…
I grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles where I attended Catholic school for 9 years where the theatricality of the rituals, ornate décor and candles with stained glass windows all provided more fodder for my imagination… As soon as I graduated high school I decided to become a musician in a band… At the age of 21 I moved to London, England to find my fortune as a singer in a band… I worked with 2 producers there and procured an agent… But after only a year there, I got homesick and came back to L.A. before anything could come of it… I immediately put together a band here in Pasadena and had some success here in the L.A. area… However, after 10 years of weaving the images in my head into lyrics for songs I had this overwhelming desire to pick up a paint brush and start putting the images on wood and canvas… I immediately found my ‘voice’ and, to my surprise, it wasn’t in my voice!!! The visual medium is where my particular insights find their best expression… So now I’ve spent the last 10 years teaching myself how to paint and actually held a job as a paint instructor at a small art school in Monrovia for a bit, until I realized that teaching requires more patience than I’ve got... And I can’t help but remember the times in the park where my dad would paint for hours while I played and how prophetic that seems to have proven…

Jude Cowell

Lifelong artist, Jude Cowell, currently works primarily in oil and watercolor pencil on paper. This Georgia native's drawings may be viewed online at Cosmic Persona Designs Art Gallery, and at Dreamyfish Art, where postcards and limited edition prints are available upon request. Cosmic Persona Designs is a collection of archetypal feminine images, cosmic-visionary art (some from an earlier series, Children's World), children's art, and more. An astrological influence is apparent, for Jude has been a serious astrology novice for 10 years, and is writer and publisher of the Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington. Dreamyfish Art is a gallery of Saturn's realism--botanically-drawn tropical fish portraits--blended with Neptune's watery, illusory qualities--a combination which neatly describes the artist's natal Sun Capricorn-Moon Pisces personality. Fish dream, too, and here you may have a sneak peek into their most favorite and secret dream locations undersea at Dreamyfish Art. Several moons ago, Jude was an art student at Atlanta School of Art (now College of Art) on Peachtree Street, and even now you may detect a Fashion Illustration, Layout, and Design influence in her work, especially in the Cosmic Persona Designs collection. You never know what might show up at Cosmic Persona, but you are cordially invited to stop by when you can...and remember that fish dream, too!

judecowell@gmail.com or dreamyfishart@earthlink.net

Wishing Peace, Love, and Art to All,
Jude Cowell

Kris Wlodarski

"Kris Wlodarski's series "Modern Images of Saints" places the relationship between the individual and the body at its epicentre: by reflecting upon the dynamics connecting transgression and taboo, the artist attempts to describe the isolation of those people who have chosen a sort of modern approach to ascetism in a quest for coming to terms with their identity.
Wlodarski's paintings indeed look at the tradition of the 'still life', and approach mutated and mutilated bodies to create a composition of flesh, metal and body marks. The saints - in the artist's understanding - are bruised, pierced and scarred. Ascetism becomes a journey pointing towards the viscera, a quest that sees isolation and suffering as two of its key elements: to know oneself means first and foremost to attempt at reinventing one's body.

Terra Wolfe

What I love about poetry is that it lets you step outside of the situation and see what is happening in a whole new way. It lets you involve the senses and the emotions and use them as a painter would color and light and shadow. It's the words that do this and they do it by bringing along all of the reader's connotations. So it would be different for every reader to see the same words.

I spent quite awhile studying this; I had some wonderful teachers who showed me new things about words. My background in graphic design helped a lot visually. But like all art, poetry gives one that new perspective.

More recently, my journey into the spiritual and the pagan ceremonies has led me to see how life can be a sacred ceremony.

And then there are the words. Like paint to an artist. You can really mess with them. Messing with the media can give us lovely results.

DoAn

Born in N. Kingstown, RI in 1970, under the name, Antony Galbraith, DoAn found artistic expression early in life. As a child he was fascinated by birds, animals, and the natural world—often spending much of his time drawing and painting what he observed.

In 2002, he took Buddhist precepts and was given the dharma name DoAn, which means “Way of Peace”. He spent two years learning traditional Asian brush painting and calligraphy. It was a result of his study and practice of Buddhism that he was able to find a new artistic direction.

DoAn’s work compares different cultures, combines mythologies, folklore, and the natural world to create paintings that mix representational, abstract and expressionist styles. Rich, saturated color is often the unifying thread to his varied range of work. Meditation is also an important element in the creation of his work. His work is in private collections in Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Vermont, Virginia, Canada, UK, South Korea, and Taiwan.

Kala Snowflower

Pure Joy is the title of my latest book of poems and this best describes the state of being I have been living in as I explore a life of close community living, open hearted loving and getting in stronger touch with the core of my strength, my beauty and my compassion. I am a Reiki teacher and practitioner and find that my work as a healer and poet flow from the same source and inform one another to create a strong and flowing practice of staying in touch with my feelings, the feelings of others and the energy of the earth, sky and cosmos... I am grateful to be able to continue and deepen my understanding of life and love through my Art and artful living. I have started my next phase of living and loving which is reflected in the new poems I share here. You can reach me at
kala@happyvalleyreiki.com. I would love to hear from you about my poetry, the healing arts,or to share in awe over the Beauty of this sweet Earth.

The Art of Light
a citizen of wonderland, playing with magic
and trying to create a more beautiful world as in my paintings..
I do it by putting intentions into the paintings while making them.
This is how magic is done...
The results show in the effect on the viewers;
the paintings have effects of heart opening, and heart beat slow downs; each painting is a portal into another possible dimension
where life is more relaxed and soul is very comfortable.
My vision is to touch a critical mass of people, and by this to create the big magic of a collective consciousness shift,
the kind that might make reality stretch and become something else....

Help us get this light everywhere and into everyone and overcome the darkness...
