Lisa Thiel, Tucson, AZ Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement Im a visionary artist known best for my new age music that is currently being distributed internationally. Im basically self taught and have been painting in acrylic for over 30 years . When I paint I go into a meditative state in order to bring spiritual energy into my work. My “Visions of the Goddess” gallery is a collection of art inspired by my spiritual experiences of the Sacred Feminine. My Southwest art reflects my deep love of the Sonoran Desert and the visions that I see in the earth , the sky and the clouds . I hope to convey the incredible beauty and magic of nature and animals that I experience all around me, and to share my unique perceptions that it might inspire others to see the world through different eyes.
