Whitney Freya’s Soul Art Day Interview
When did you know you were an artist?
What I love so much about my journey home to my artist self is that i grew up a TOTAL wanna be artist. When I opened my first bricks and mortar art center in 1996, inspired by the idea of awakening the Life Artist within, I had never painted on a canvas. I learned alongside my students. It was a magical unfolding and reclaiming of my most authentic self.
What inspires you?
For me, the inspiration has always come from the opportunity we each have to use our Sacred & Personal Painting Practice to guide us into new levels of creative living. Art making has a very practical side and i get most excited when my clients make leaps in creating a LIFE that lights them up, that is a reflection of their authentic self BECAUSE of what they have learned about themselves at the canvas and the change they have practiced while painting. Perfectionists practice painting more wild and free and before they know it they are able to CHOOSE when to allow their perfectionism super power to assist them or when to choose to be wild and free. Ultimately it is about aligning with the truth that you ARE creating the art that is your life in each and every moment and learning to so intentionally. I am also stepping into new ways to serve creative women entrepreneurs. There is power and abundance that wants to be at the fingertips of creative business women so that we can be the leaders in creating the new eARTh that are desperately needed.
What do you want people to know about your art?
My art is my medicine. It is where I go to create into my physical reality the energy that I want to expand in my life. Each painting is like a magic spell with words of intention, sacred symbols and frequencies encoded into the layers. Each painting is a personal journey. They create portals through which I can connect to and align with the future self I am calling in. And this painting practice is available to everyone. It has nothing to do with having “talent” or “skill.” It is about providing yourself with time and space to fully remember that you are here TO create. Gah! I love this soul mission of mine SO much!
