Together we dive into a sea of rich colors evoking passion, creativity, love, grounding, intuition, higher consciousness, and pleasure. These are the emotions directly related to the chakra colors, the inspiration for this collection. As you tune into the images be mindful of the feelings vibrating through your body. Are you drawn to one color more than another? Pay attention to that! The colors you may be drawn to could be signaling you to particular chakras…energy centers that run through our bodies that affect our health, wellbeing, and spirituality.
As an artist I like to combine dark with light and hard with soft, highlighting the beauty of opposing forces and honoring the yin and yang of the natural life, which is reflected throughout this collection.

Duality so powerful you can feel the emotions flow through the art as your chakras are activated from within. Come take the visual ride through Colorful Symbolism.
