All creativity is spiritual and it can be said that everyone is creative - they just may not realise it. Artists are people who develop their creativity. It could be argued that all artists are spiritual. Here are some that actually think of themselves as spiritual artists. And to start, here is an amazing quote about paintings...'And if you roll the universe into a ball and pull it all to pieces like a sun that is made from string and if your hands get sore and if the clouds are laughing and you blink and if your heart cracks open and is raw and if you start to think that you can’t live and the world gets dark like a wintry eye closing... just look at a painting', Deborah Lubelska Katz, artist, writer and visionary.
Sid Manley (born in 1903) was many things during his life including a carpenter, a medium, a healer, a structural engineer and a psychic artist! Unlike most psychic artists who draw through clairvoyance, Sid had no inherent artistic skill or inclination. He drew in a way perhaps best described as conscious mediumship, with no idea of what was to be drawn. Working with different materials, no practice, study, or correction, he would bring a piece to completion with working methods that were counter-intuitive. Sid’s son, Chris, is working on a book about his father. To contact Chris: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tomas Boisvert was born in Quebec, Canada in 1958. After studies in Communication and Cinema, he now devotes his time to painting. He creates ‘figurative evocative’ art which is the expression and reflect of his spiritual life path. Thomas says: ‘To paint light, simply, from the heart...is to paint love. Art, fruit of the soul, of love...connects us to our Source. Art reminds us of our true identity, our true being. Grateful thanks to Life for inspiring my heart and guiding my hand’.

Soulful Creations – Art for the Soul...Debbie McIntree has always had a creative career which has taken her in many different directions, including studying Interior Design and acquiring master craftsman status in specialist paint effects. These skills have enabled her to experiment and find the style that allows her to express herself through my art. She is now on her true path and has been guided to create textured abstract art using a variety of mediums. She paints mainly angels, fairies and Buddhas. All her work is individually created with palette knives and brushes and is heavily textured to give a unique finish. She intuitively chooses a crystal and places it on the back of each finished canvas with a guided message. She can create bespoke, commissioned pieces. http://www.soulfulcreations.co.uk/ Arch Angel Uriel helps us to find our strength for our path in service...
Joanne Webb’s lifelong interestin anthropology and the transformation of the human spirit has resulted in the creation of wonderfully imaginative works. Influences include: the art and creative awareness of early and modern day shamanic culture, alternative statesof consciousness, cosmic journeying, dreaming and Buddhism. Joanne’s most recent body of work depicts seamless repeat patterns as the art forms. Over the years, a gradual collaboration between classical and contemporary fine art techniques [painting & collage] and surface design has meant that working digitally became fused and part of the creative process. Joanne explores and produces artist-led and designed products – in particular - textiles.
Prints can be ordered online via the website: www.joannewebbstudio.co.uk and commissions and studio visits are welcome.
Jaimie Cahill is an artist & transpersonal psychotherapist...beginning to refer to his paintings as Transpersonal Painting! He paints vivid, colourful paintings with a clear spiritual quality. When you look at them in the flesh they have a powerful meditative quality. He believes this is because many of his paintings have a mandala within them. In Sanskrit ‘mandala’ means a circle within a circle – an ancient focus for meditation. Jaimie explains that the mandala is the essence of his painting process – in that he looks deep within (the inner circle) while holding a sense of the whole (the outer circle). He describes his work as “speaking to the soul”. Jaimie began meditating in the 80s to inspire creativity. Now meditation gives him the deeply receptive state required for the creative process, which he calls “soul work”.
Dr Beate Dehnen is an artist, teacher and education-scientist. Here's her 'Wings of Dawn' picture. Beate's art is about capturing light and showing the inherent beauty of 'things'. Living and working in two countries and languages finds an echo in her creative work. Some of her work is inspired by language, words, verses, texts and deep reasoning. In the last few years Beate has been working with children and adults in
‘coherence in communities’ art projects, focusing on inter-cultural and inter-faiths aspects. This has inspired some of her own work and is captured in her new book: 'Stepping Stones - Art Journeys Around The World - Cultures, Art and Religions' . Beate is a trained teacher and holds a Ph.D. in education-pedagogy. Art and creativity are a leitmotiv of Beate's life, an aesthetic way of living and working. Beate runs art workshops in the UK and abroad. She has illustrated educational and other publications. Commissions welcome and art workshops possible.

Argentinian Artist, Camilo Villanueva’s paintings are characterised by the great visual impact they produce and their strong colours. He is a kind of alchemist who during the production of his work has access to an extraordinary state of consciousness. His paintings convey deep spiritual messages of love and unity.They are exceptional mandalas which can be used as doors to the cosmic elements that transmute the soul into something higher to discover the key to its evolution. When we access Camilo's paintings, sort of holograms in which each part holds the information of totality, we are offered the opportunity to enrich our spirit, discover the unseen and feel one with the Creation.
