FEATURE ARTICLE:  Making Spiritual Art

I love to make art.  I love to work with fabric, texture and color.  Textile art allows me to do all that.  But why do I love it, why do I spend the hours and make the time to do it?  Because when I make something beautiful, it is a tangible representation of my spirit or the divine spark or whatever you call it.  It connects me to peace and joy. It’s like doing yoga for my soul. Sounds corny, I know, but that’s what makes me tick.  What is it that drives you to write or paint or sing or make art quilts or dance? I really want to hear from you- let me know in the comment section below. For now, take a look at this and tell me if you don’t see and feel the divine.

 The best example of this concept I can think of is my art quilt, Unopened on my homepage.   What do you think?  Do you feel it too?

  1. YES! It is a spiritual connection. I too find peace and joy in creating with fabric. The tactile nature of it and the endless possibilities-it just draws me in. I want to produce beauty-that’s my goal. And hopefully it leaves some joy in the viewer of my art-much like “Unopened” leaves some joy in me.

  2. Yoga for the soul is a great way of putting it. When I’m painting I lose all sense of time and place, just focusing on creating something beautiful. Very meditative.
