Mary Anne Ritchie Member Since May 2012 Artist Statement Thank you for visiting Spiral Moon Gallery!
I have been creating the work you see here for the past 4 years, but have been doing some form of art for the last 30 years. I am a digital artist using old postcards, scanned objects, multiple layered images, and photos to express my passion for color. Living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia is an inspiration that I wake up to everyday! I draw on my spirituality, dreams, and intuition to create each piece of art. I am greatly inspired by the Native American path of my ancestors.
I have a B.A. in Psychology and am currently working on a Masters in Humanities. Most of my life I have worked in the mental health field, but also am a spiritual teacher helping others find their life path and true calling.
The digital art work is completed by reassembling and layering multiple images into a form of digital collage. While I have no formal training, each piece is created and shared from the heart.
I recently added a few of my favorite pictures. These were taken over many years of living different places along the East Coast.
