Hi I'm Charlene...
I'm an award-winning artist and multi-dimensional creative. As a kid, just the smell of “the art room” at school was an invitation to a comforting place where I could express myself however I wanted to. My creative background includes a BFA in painting from the University of Massachusetts, a number of other fine art disciplines, graphic design, photography, illustration, writing, music, and more recently, the healing arts (RYT 500 teacher, Reiki master, Shamanic healing). I've taught drawing/painting, yoga, energy healing, and am now weaving all of these amazing practices into my own unique offerings. Having shifted and transformed through many different versions of myself, my motto through it all has been that "Energy never dies... it just changes form."
"Who would deduce the dragonfly from the larva, the iris from the bud, the lawyer from the infant? We are all shapeshifters and magical re-inventors. Life is really a plural noun, a caravan of selves."
I am a transformational artist working through creative mediums as a catalyst for change. Creativity is life. it opens the heart and keeps curiosity and wonder alive. We move energy through act of innovating and creating, something we are all capable of doing.
Creativity is healing, and we all have the capacity to tap into our own well of this intuitive energy. As the artist, designer, and writer of my first oracle card deck "The Language of Heart Alchemy," I am continuously living this process of transformation through my own art, and know that my creations can help others through their own challenges and life-changing times.
Art, sound, and movement will spark the latent love, joy and creativity within. To pull you back into the space of joy and delight — that wide open space of possibility which invites even more magic into your sphere. The "serious work" is to remember how to NOT be so serious — but instead, reclaim your openness and curiosity so that more magic can arrive for you.
