Hello, my name is Karen and I am a Spiritual Artist. Sounds like something you would hear in a support group meeting. But what exactly is a Spiritual Artist? Is there such a thing? The answer, depends on how you think about art and spirituality. If you Google spirituality, it’s defined as being a broad idea with a lot of different perspectives. In general, spirituality is a sense of connection to something higher than ourselves, whatever name you choose to call it.
As an artist, the greatest pleasure to me is when people connect deeply with my art. Art is often the result of inspiration. Inspiration can be spiritual in nature from conception to execution. When I create a sculpture or paint and sketch, the act of creation is meditative and therapeutic to me. It grounds me on many different levels.
So who is a Spiritual Artist? My definition is an artist who creates artwork that helps connect individuals to their Divine Spirit on a higher conscious level. No matter the medium, I consider a piece spiritual in nature when it connects an individual with their own spirituality.
And that is what I strive for when I create my art. I want my art to bridge the physical and spiritual realms. I want to help create a physical connection to the Divine.
What are you thoughts? I’d love to hear about them. Leave a comment below!
