Description An image of healing. I was sitting alone feeling rather world-weary, when suddenly I was aware of a blanket of warmth and loving energy all around me, holding me. As my stress dissolved in the embrace I asked where this unexpected gift came from, and I saw it was from my old friend the hawthorn spirit.
FAITH NOLTON, West Wales Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement My view of life is from the inner eye, the perception of the soul. As a visionary artist I paint what lies just beyond the everyday filter of the senses, and record my own soul journey with inner eyes wide open.
I am based in West Wales where for many years my paintings and poems have been inspired by the practices of natural mysticism and shamanism and the wild spirit of the land.
For me everything is alive, connected and sacred. Much of my artwork is of trees and gardens and the quiet places where we can feel the mystery of life very close and nourishing, whispering on the wind.
