    The Art of Martina Hoffmann


    German-born artist, Martina Hoffmann, spent her childhood in Cameroon, equatorial West Africa. She grew up in a multi cultural environment with German parents, a French education and the indigenous African culture which informed her life at the deepest instinctual levels. The raw power of nature, the all-pervasive earth magic and spirit that touches all people who live in this rich environment as well as the colors and sensuality of Africa have had a lasting influence on her life and work.
    Later she majored in art with professor Kiefer (father of Anselm Kiefer) and studied sculpting at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, with Professor Spelmann.
    Today Martina Hoffmann works as a painter and sculptress and is a central figure in contemporary Visionary Art.

    The Art of Martina Hoffmann


    Martina Hoffmann works as a painter and sculptress.
     Her paintings offer the viewer a detailed glimpse into her inner landscapes - imagery that has been inspired by expanded states of consciousness: the realms of the imagination, meditation, shamanic journeys and the dream state.
       "The visionary artist makes visible the more subtle and intuitive states ofour existence and creates maps and symbols reflecting consciousness.My work is an attempt to show spirit as the universal force which unifies us beyond the confines of cultural and religious differences. By accepting the interdependency of all life and our universal interconnectedness we have a chance to heal and transform the planet's general state of woundedness.In using art as a tool for transformation, we have the opportunity to createa reality as beautiful, healthy and strong as our imagination permits."
       Martina Hoffmann, has exhibited her work and spoken on behalf of visionaryart and culture internationally. Together with her husband the AmericanFantastic Realist, Robert Venosa, she teaches visionary painting workshops.

    Cindy Maus Art


    Before settling in Texas in 1980, Cindy Maus lived in the Midwest and on the East Coast.   She loves nurturing children and plants, with past careers related to both.  Now that her children are grown, she paints with soft pastels.  She loves the vibrant colors and immediacy of pastels and the way she can portray light with their lusciousness!    Studying with renowned and wonderful pastel artist, Enid Wood for the last five years has stretched Cindy’s boundaries and challenged her to try new adventures in this crone stage of her life.  Cindy’s impressionistic  paintings of florals, still life and landscapes are exhibited in central Texas and appear in private collections throughout the USA.

    The Art of Beth Budesheim


    Evident in Beth's work is the honoring of the living sacred presence in all things. She is inspired by an inner vision, contemplations, and personal experiences of the soul, psyche and energy field within and all around us. The canvas is a place she connects, plays, self explores, and receives intuitive guidance. Many of her earlier paintings served as a way to document the clairvoyant experiences she had during energy medicine studies and personal meditations. This then evolved into a realization that she could 'see' for others, and she began offering the intuitive Goddess Energy Portraits™.

    A painting, Beth says, can serve as a merging place of spiritual energy and wisdom with physical reality; it can be a place to empower what is wanting to be realized or illuminated within us. To accomplish this alchemy, she takes her seed of inspiration into sacred intent, and through meditation, intuition, creative joy and present moment flow, allows the piece to unfold organically.

    The Imaginative Arts of Carol Ochs


    Last Rays of FireCarol Ochs (like "Oaks"), is a self-taught artist since childhood who dabbles in many media, as well as many crafts. She is also a professional handcrafted soapmaker, sculptor, and handspun fiber artist...working out of both a workshop and art studio at her cottage home in San Diego.

    Carol has always been enamored with the magical side of life, first inspired by books she read as a child and their enticing illustrations beckoning her into worlds of imagination!  A childhood filled with camping trips to beautiful woods and lakes connected her to nature as her true home.  Visions of fairies, mermaids, and especially witches have always danced in her head and attracted her by their mystery.  While most folk fear the "neighborhood witch", Carol was always enthralled by her secrets, sees past labels and misguided old wives tales, wants to know and show her better.  Carol embraces that misunderstood individuals can be both beautiful and different, strong and non-conformist, free and unaffected by "the muggle world"; and these spirits are most-attuned to and comfortable, as she herself is, with natural environments.  Carol celebrates these beautiful beings in her art, sometimes whimsically, in hopes viewers reconnect with their own magical child-like spirit...and be reminded that we all have much to learn & embrace, even from those most different from us. 

    Carol's art has appeared in two art books, as well as numerous e-magazine covers.

    You can find more of Carol's art and other crafts at her website:

    The Art of Mollie Kellogg


    Mollie Kellogg

    About Mollie Kellogg and her Incognito Witch Project:

    Creative sorceress Mollie Kellogg conjures a magickal world on canvas. Mortals are transformed into mystical beings draped in mysterious fabrics, adorned with jewels and leaves, often wearing messy lipstick with a signature flash of color under their eyes. True-to-life figures emerge from a textured, glitter-embedded realm, evoking a Mother Nature archetype. Power, strength, attraction, empathy and vulnerability fight for dominance.

    See the series: http://molliekellogg.com/works/category/witches.html

    Incognito Witch paintings reveal the subject’s hidden psyche, or inner magick, which has often been suppressed to meet society’s expectations. "Hopefully instead of just making pretty pictures, I am making something that has an impact on people,"explains Mollie Kellogg during a recent reception.
    Watch presentation:
    http://molliekellogg.com/works/videos.html

    Since its inception, many have expressed their bucket-list desire to be a part of the project, finding the “hidden magick” message empowering, “I love the Incognito Witch character because she inspires you to let your inner magic shine. Mollie Kellogg is such an inspiration through her words, her mind, and her art.”Another commented, “Mollie is using her art to encourage the expression and celebration of the gifts of hidden magic that exist in all of us.”

    Kellogg has taken her message of encouraging self-acceptance from canvas to film in a series of shorts about “G” (short for Goddess) the Incognito Witch, a character inspired by her first painting of the series. Film screenings include Los Angeles, London, Miami, and schools in Mumbai. Most recently, Mollie stars in the quirky award-winning 5-minute film Incognito Witch: Paint My Life.
