Elements Series

Bringing in ELEMENTS of the earth

                                                                                                  into Fine Art

My “Elements” series is a creative blending of semiprecious stones and unique pieces of the earth with traditional fine art. I love nature. I love finding things that were created by nature such as semiprecious stones, shells an other items, some of which are millions of years old.

“I’ve never seen anything like it”

Most of the stones I use have been collected for a year in order to work out my compositions and then incorporate them into my paintings.

I get them from all around the world and from various vendors. Each semiprecious stone has individual properties generated energetically from the stone. The energy can be felt by wearing the stone, touching the stone and by having the stone in a room of your home.

I encourage people to touch the stones on the art to resonate with its properties. I include properties of the stones with the descriptions. Some stones are healing, energizing, loving, calming. Some resonate with different chakras and evoke emotions. These properties will fill your room where the art will hang.

I love working with and showcasing the unique beauty found in each semiprecious stone. I work with mostly Grade A and B semiprecious stones. Sometimes I use stones that are in rough form before they are faceted like a fine piece of jewelry. The semiprecious stones I use in my Elements series come from all over the world.

 I hope you enjoy these unique works as much as I enjoy creating them.

Stones Used:

Selenite: is a remarkably peaceful stone, bringing a deep sense of inner peace. They carry a very high vibration, and instill clarity of mind.  On a spiritual level Selenite can assist you in opening your crown chakra and it can even assist you in contacting your Spiritual Guides and Angels.

Selenite can take away negative energies.

Selenite is one of the more powerful healing stones for the new age and spiritual work. It is excellent for meditation, and ensures a peaceful environment when stones are placed around the home.
