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.
From the Artist:
I wanted this painting to be light and iridescent, using soft hues that make you feel simple and serene when you look at this piece. I used iridescent paint to blend better with the glow and shine of the quartz used in this painting. I love the monochromatic feel that it gives from this piece, while using hints of pink in some of the Zeolites used in the piece. To me it so soft, sweet, feminine and a certain sense of a serenity I wanted to capture with this painting.
I used some very special specimens of quartz and Zeolites for this piece, making it a special painting to me. Look closely and I hope you’ll notice them and appreciate them as I do.
Quartz Crystal: Wonderful multi use stone. Enhances energy of all other stones and metals. Harmonious and powerful. Aids communication. Sign of Entire Zodiac.

Zeolite: In particular, zeolites are said to be extraordinarily helpful for absorbing and removing toxins, whether it be in the environment or in a person. In a person, this metaphysical aspect makes zeolites excellent healing stones, and they are often used in conjunction with Reiki.
Zeolites are also said to be useful for agriculture or gardening, especially when they are buried in the field or garden.
Zeolites are said to remove negative energy and bring in happiness where the negative energy was.
