Create

Your life Is a work of art. You get to create a masterpiece!

You already have all you need to create.

Creativity is so much more than painting on a canvas- you’re SO good at this already!

Many of life’s challenges require creative solutions that you come up with every single day. Creativity –in all its many forms— can change the way we think, ‘be’ and navigate our unique lives. Our creative spirit is what creates change … helps us break out… get unstuck ….. and literally attract new opportunities. It’s what keeps us motivated and challenged to go on, become more than we ever believed possible.

The Art of Possibilities

It’s time to paint BIG and live BIG.

Does the idea of “doing it wrong” keep you from expressing yourself? Step into the studio and silence your inner critic for a while. With Marsha’s influence, you can learn to disengage mental barriers so your soul can paint its own picture. In a small group setting, or online you’ll be able to explore messages from within while using art as a tool to move forward. You just might find the process is more valuable than the product. Are you ready to meet the possible?

“Your choices shape your life. You are the artist. Your life is the canvas. Intention is your paintbrush.”

– a wise art guru

My Inspiration, My Work.

I believe we are all divine creative beings and the highest quality of life is incredibly full of art and creative expression. The spark of life is creativity.

As an intuitive artist, each session begins with a special little ritual that is based on intention. I light my favorite candle, sit in front of my blank canvas, drop into meditation. I ask for guidance to create something that will contribute to more joy, beauty, and goodness in this world. 

Then I just wait…I get out of my own way and see what comes through. Shapes, colors, images begin to appear and I have learned to trust in my vision and just pour it out on the canvas.  Music inspires me also so I turn on the tunes and I find myself dancing and painting, singing and painting, praying and painting.  It’s so important to me that each creation is soulfully inspired. When I feel it is complete, I ask for blessings on this creation and for the person who one day will own it. May it bring, health, happiness, and healing to them.

My relationship with the canvas and painting has changed so much since I first attempted to paint.  Once paralyzed by perfectionism and afraid to make a mark on the canvas, I now freely create without overthinking,  am daring, exploratory, brave, and bold with my creation time.

The added bonus is that this has spilled over into the rest of my life and shows itself in my ability to take risks, try new things and realize that there are no mistakes, it’s all simply learning opportunities.

The process of art is about change, growth, transformation, and trust.  Every single time you step up to the canvas there is the opportunity to let go, seize the adventure, be brave and embrace the mystery, to offer yourself patience and grace. You will not only tap into a deeper level of inspiration, confidence, and intuition, but will begin to see how life supports personal success when you step into creative power and authentic expression.

Marsha's Art Beginnings

On a cold winter day as I approached my 50th birthday, I heard a voice saying, “You need a hobby.” Off to the craft store I went, arriving home with paints, brushes, and canvases.  Now what???

After viewing a few “how-to” videos on Youtube I find myself staring at a blank canvas…paralyzed by perfectionism. What have I done? What if I waste this canvas? What if what I make isn’t pretty enough to hang on a wall? My inner critic had her megaphone out.

A wonderful online class set my creative force free and transformed the fear into fun, taught me to enjoy the process rather than focus on the outcome. I merged my meditation practice with the creation time and it was amazing to see what emerged on the canvas when I tapped into Divine source. It was only the beginning of my new love affair with paint, color, play, exploration, creating…living life from a more colorful place and not afraid at all to go outside the lines. I love helping others tap into their divine creative gifts by sharing my journey back to intentional creativity
