Commission a Portrait

A visual reminder of the spiritual guidance that is available to help us on our journey

Shamanic Portrait

WATERCOLOR PAINTING

A Shamanic Portrait is a two dimensional glimpse of your spirit guides message. The image is extracted out of the information obtained from a shamanic journey that is taken on your behalf. These images are created as an inspiration for the soul’s journey.

Spiritual Paintings that Help Manifest Your Intentions

From our earliest history, we have sought spiritual signposts to mark our journey through life. For people all over the planet, it was the shaman who provided a channel to the guiding spirit forces. From the earliest images found as cave paintings, petroglyphs and sculptures, the shamans, as healers, created art to help their communities to heal and manifest their intentions.
Our tools and dwellings have changed, but we continue to face physical, emotional and spiritual challenges. During those times when we feel tested by life, it is still immensely helpful to have a visual reminder of our spirit guide’s message. That is why I have combined my classic training as an illustrator with my shamanic practice to create Shamanic Portraits for individuals.

Chakra Totem Portrait

WATERCOLOR PAINTING

Chakra Totem Potraits are created in the same way as the Shamanic Portraits by utilizing the information from shamanic journeys to create a painting. A journey is taken on behalf of the client to learn about each chakra guide and their message for that particular area. Each chakra has its own guide which can take the form of many different beings, most of which are animal but can also be other living beings. All of the guides are then arranged vertically as they appear in the body and have their own unique relationship with eachother.

The word “chakra” is a Sanskrit term meaning circle or wheel. These specific areas on the body help maintain health and balance of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a person by regulating the energy.

Why a portrait of chakra animals? This is a powerful way to connect on a daily basis with those who can remind us to keep the energy flowing and in balance from our crown to the base chakra. We can also create a relationship with each chakra guide and utilize their medicine to help us with our awareness, healing and spiritual growth.

I am aware that many of us may have many other chakra points within our field, these paintings are focused only the major chakra areas. This is what my guides have suggested for these paintings.

Digital Chakra Totem Portrait

MUSEUM QUALITY GICLEE PRINT

Digital Chakra Totem Portrait is created with multiple photographs and merged in photoshop. A fine art archival print (on archival paper with archival inks) is made of the image as a final product. You also have the option of ordering an additional print for your office or home.

The photographs used for the digital illustrations are a combination of my own photos and purchased stock photography where the rights to the image have been purchased for this use.

Creating Your Portrait

These paintings are a culmination of working for many years as an illustrator and my studies and practice in shamanism. The design and message of this art is a critical aspect of representing the animals both visually and energetically. This process relies on the ability to translate the message from your guides into a visual and to assemble animals in a harmonious way so their message can be understood. The beautiful aspects of the animals and intangible qualities of spirit come together in one powerful combination.

1. Getting started

I’ll need some basic information from you and a deposit to schedule your portrait.

2. Identifying the intention

The process is then started with a phone conversation that will help us identify the key intention for your shamanic journey. Please send me a good time to contact you and the number at which you can be reached. Some people choose to allow this process to be based on the intention for their “Highest good”. Others have identified a specific intention that is of great importance to them. This is a relatively short conversation where we will discuss the intention for this work.

3. Journey on your behalf

Once your intention for the painting is identified, then I will do your shamanic journey based on that intention. For the Chakra totem portrait, I will need to journey to each chakra to find out the animal, plant or “other” that represents that chakra.

The information that I receive is written up in a report and given to you within a week of our scheduled start date. I will schedule with you a time to read this to you over the phone so that if you have any questions, they can be addressed in this conversation. Then the hard copy of this information can be mailed or emailed to you.

4. Your painting is completed

As soon as your painting is completed I will arrange a delivery to your home or office. Each painting will have a copy of the shamanic journey information attached to the back in an acetate sleeve. (When you get your art framed you can have the framer permanently attach this on the back.)

Schedule your painting

Your painting can take any where from two weeks to five weeks to complete (depending on size). When you contact me I will let you know when your painting can be completed. Once I receive your completed order form and deposit I will confirm a completion and shipping date.

Payment Schedule

• Deposit of 1/2 to schedule your portrait.

• Balance of 1/2 is due upon completion. Notice is given by email and arrangements for payment can be made through paypal on this website.

• Shipping information will be sent to you by email.

Separate Shamanic Journeys for all seven Chakra Totem Animals: $250.00

Learn about all seven chakra animals and their messages to you. If you should later decide to have a painting or digital illustration created, this fee is deducted from the total cost.

Do you already know your chakra totem animals? I can also paint your portrait based on your own shamanic journey information. Deduct $250 from the cost of any portrait by submitting your own list of chakra animals.

Journey Information now and painting later

The shamanic journey information collected from all seven chakra totems are written up in a report. This can be purchased separately or as the part of the information used for your painting. If you purchase just the journey information and should decide to purchase a portrait later, this will be applied towards your painting.

Painting process and materials

Most of my paintings are done with watercolor and colored pencils on Watercolor paper or Canson pastel paper. The Chakra Totem paintings are sometimes painted on wood panel with watercolor. This new material was shown to me in a shamanic journey and has become somewhat of a standard for most of the traditional chakra totem paintings. In an effort to make the chakra totem portraits more affordable I have switched over to creating them digitally. These digital illustrations allow me to assemble dozens of photos into one image to create the totem of animal guides.

Painting Materials and Coating

The Chakra Totem Portraits are painted with watercolors and mixed media on a wood panel. Each piece of wood is chosen for it’s unique qualities that will become part of the painting. Once the painting is completed is coated with many layers of a clear hard protective coating that allow you to simple frame and hang your art. No glass is needed.

The Shamanic Portraits are painted with watercolors and some mixed mediums on traditional archival papers and board.There is a coating sprayed on the surface to retain vibrancy and protect from UV damage. Like all other forms of fine art, it is best not to hang in direct sunlight.

Photographic Illustrations

These images are printed with archival inks on archival paper. An archival spray is applied to keep colors vibrant and protected from natural changes in temperatures inside frame. Larger sizes are available by request.

As it is with all fine art, it is best to keep your portrait away from direct sunlight or directly near a door where temperatures are at their most extremes.
