Elements Series; incorporating semi-precious stone and unique pieces of the earth in a creative way.
This painting is part of my mixed media “ELEMENTS” Series where I want to bring in elements on the earth into my art. I love nature, I love finding things that have been created by nature such as semi precious stones and other items from the earth.
I love working with and showcasing the unique beauty that you find in each semi precious stone. I work with mostly Grade A and B semi precious stones; sometimes I use the same stones that are in rough form before they are faceted that you see in a fine piece of jewelry.
Most of the stones I use have been gathered for a year in order to incorporate together into my art. I get them from all around the world from various locations and venders.
Each semi precious stone also has individual properties that generate energetically from the stones. This is by wearing the stone, touching the stones and by having them in a room in your home.
I encourage people to touch the stones on the art to resonate with the properties. I have included some of the properties of the stones in the description so you will be aware of their specific properties; some are healing, energizing, loving, calming, resonate with different chakras, and evoke emotions.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I love creating them.

I love the texture and movement in this painting. My mom had these Agate sliced in her garage, I saw them and fell in love with them, begged her for them, with hesitance she surrendered them and now, here they are put into fine art. I so love agate especially these sliced, each one is so unique and interesting with its colors and shapes.
I am intrigued with how they are made from the earth to give them such vibrant colors, which is what inspired this painting. I wanted this to be as if the Agate were being formed by the fire of the earth; emerging and erupting from the earth.
Those who have seen this in person have commented on ” how much texture, movement and energy” is in the painting.
Protection, Strength, Harmony. Agate’s most noticeable properties overall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming.
