As an artist I use the process of creating as a healing and meditative medium. Setting the mind free during the creative process allows us, with the right setting, to enter into altered states of awareness. As a result the images, words and crafts become power objects and spiritual medicine for the soul.
My ethnic and cultural background informs my spirit therefore you will find Taino Arawak motifs, Yoruba Orishas, Ethiopian and Rastafarian themes, Mary and Christ, People in Meditation , Mandalas and always the Goddess and Mother Earth. Because of my Taino Arawak ancestry I identify with aspects of the Shamanic Tradition and reclaim this heritage with visionary imagery. Stories of Taino Abuelas and African Grandmothers heard during childhood populate and reflect my inner world.
In addition as a healer I have been blessed to know and learn from an ever-expanding circle of teachers, family and friends who also walk the path of knowledge.
Participation in Vodoun Drumming Ceremonies, Rasta Nyahbinghi Groundations, Taino Areytos, Peruvian Shaman Led Circles, Sufi Salaat, and Buddhist Meditation meetings, have given me a wide range of perspectives on spirituality and soul upliftment.
With Yoga movement, diet, meditation, music, art, words, Reiki energy, and the study of Spirit I have recovered parts of my soul, healed spiritual wounds and joyfully experienced health, flexibility and energy.
I invite you to study with me as we stretch our bodies, expand the heart and open our minds.
Peace, Blessings and Heartfelt Meditations,
