About Alexis Cohen’s Soul Art
Before I create a piece of art I connect with the spirit or consciousness of the piece of artwork that wants to come in! I see creating art very much like a birthing process and my relationship with the paper or canvas creates a portal from the spirit world into ordinary reality – much like a birth canal.
The more I connect with the vision, surrender to the process and learn to get out of it’s way the more joyful and easeful the process will be. I draw and paint female archetypes mostly and feel very dedicated to creating images that inspire folks to step into their strength, power, love and abundance.
When I create commissions I focus on the healing that needs to come through for the client and create an image that they can meditate on to help them step into their power and into the next phase of their life.
