Artists Around the World Blog-Hop

I am honoured to participate in this blog hop featuring artists around the world. I was invited by talented artist and intuitive reader Adrienne Vita along with the illustrator Marta Berk to participate. Why do I create what I do?

I never know exactly what it is I'm about to create next actually. I let spirit guide me and am often surprised by what comes out, but this is all part of the creative process, non? I do know that whatever I create is exactly what i need at that moment to grow my creative soul.

How does my creative process work?

My creative work anchors me to the Divine and is often exactly what i need to help guide me along my path emotionally and intuitively.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Which work? I have so many different styles: cartooney...abstract...detailed realism...whimsical children's book illustration style...etc.

What am I presently working on?

Currently I'm developing a new class called "Awaken Your Creative Soul"; a creative, spiritual class where students create affirmation cards using their non dominant hand along with moon collages! I find that developing a class and teaching is an incredibly rich and satisfying experience creatively. I also continue to create more 'lefty' drawings combined with collaged words/phrases that may end up being published in upcoming Creative Soul decks that I hope to put out every year. I also channel healing songs, affirmations and Creative Soul Challenges and Body Movement exercises every New and Full Moon to accompany a Creative Soul Card chosen specifically for that Moon and shared with my class.

Inspiration counts by Kathy Crabbe

Who inspires me to create?

The Divine spark within. Two blogs or artists that inspire me:

Francesco Clemente: Inspired by India ~ his latest exhibit at the Rubin Museum.

An inspiring quote:

When in doubt, twirl!" (by modern dance pioneer Ted Shawn).

Up next

I recently discovered the beautiful green goddess inspired photography and jewelry of Astara Lak'ech and would like to invite everyone to hop on over to Astara's Sacred Spirit of Gaia blog as we continue on with the worldwide artist blog-hop ~ enjoy and please support artists everywhere!

Happy Aquarius Full Moon: I quiet my outside so my inner voice can be heard

Afirmation: I quiet my outside so my inner voice can be heardThe affirmation and image in this post is from my soon to be released Creative Soul Deck and Class and was channeled by me for this Aquarius Full Moon. I have included a snippet from the Creative Soul Activity that accompanies it below. There is also a gemstone healing meditation that I channeled and will be sharing in my Creative Soul Circle, a private group on Facebook. Please email me if you'd like to join.

Affirmation: Shush! I quiet my outside so my inner voice can be heard. And I open up to touch the core of me-ness.

It's the lunar lammas and the first harvest (in the northern hemisphere, that is), but because it's a lunar celebration which happens this Sunday at the Full Moon in Aquarius (August 10 at 11:09 am PDT) this celebration is about our inner harvest.

What feeds you? What keeps you going and fulfills you?  Is this a part of your daily work or play or even your dreams at night?

Mummy by Kathy Crabbe

Quick, the fairies are calling you; can you see that flash of light, that wee sprite, out of the corner of your eye?  She is calling your name.

You are the mummy now; the mummy of your own inner dreams. Take time out to acknowledge yourself.

Take time out for you.

Wrap yourself up like a mummy, in protective layers so that YOU, yes YOU can hear your own thoughts without distraction.

Allow the Divine to speak through you, trusting that the advice she has for you is going to be good for all of us.

Allow the group mind, the myriad of voices, the universal, co-creative, collective consciousness to speak through you by listening to your heart and soul at this Full Moon in Aquarius.

Allow this Full Moon to fill your soul with light for you are love and all you touch is loved.
