First Week Return to Studio – Fiori Inks at Olly Olly

A refreshing and much needed experience getting back to work at my studio this week after a huge artistic push over the Summer of 2017. I hung a massive symmetry WIP and look forward to getting it refined with its first touches of color. I’m also working on a spirit painting for a special lady in my office who is expecting a little girl soon. Lastly, there is a collage in process that pays respect to the past cycle of my work.

New Work

The large work shown below is the beginning to a new collection of paintings that I am developing based on symmetry and light. I’m interested in displaying subtle energies and harmony through aligned color patterns. I’ve also started work on a smaller piece, the beginnings of which you can see in this gallery – check out the process..

Old Work

In hommage to my previous body of work, I’ve started a collage process from some prints that didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted during my learning process for making prints. The last picture is a re-organized studio that should become more and more harmonious over time.

Spirit Painting In Process

In addition to the symmetry work that I will be doing over the next year or so, I plan to move forward with Spirit Paintings. The first of this Season has begun. please check back to watch this evolve. Brittany has a really beautiful mellow energy with an inner light that I want to emphasize. (not to mention that she is expecting a child anytime now – and this is a sacred time both for the little one and for her)

Personal Notes

The past couple weeks have involved a lot of learning for me in my own life as I adjust to changing relationships with other’s and with myself. Over a month ago I felt a deep urge to go within and this initiated direction towards inner-learning through new classes, study, and adoration of the world around me. Without going in to too much detail; I wanted to share a few pictures from my personal life as well.

Happy Self-Discovery fellow Creators – Thank you for Existing



New Website Up and Running

Focusing this week on Growth and what that means for me.

Where I’m At

I’ve spent the past two days playing around with WordPress and figuring out ways to make my website a better destination for visitors. Not an easy task for an introverted visual oriented meditation aficionado. But, hey, sometimes our lessons in stillness come from a little effort crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s.

What’s New

The new additions to my website include a shopping experience, this blog, and an updated list. I’m also hiding a few goodie widgets here and there and hoping you will find them amusing and inspiring.

About My Journey


The name Lotus Heartsong is chosen by me and represents the intentional creation that I put forth into the world at all times. I think, as artists, we have the rare opportunity to shape culture as a whole and I say, why not then, lean towards beauty and flow… and our inner lotus. Heartsong is all about that life – the unfolding – the courage to be more of myself – and to dance un-apologetically like no one is watching. ┬áMy artist persona is simply Lotus. It is the culmination the rapture and awe, tribulation and ease, love and resistance, and gentle passivity that I have come to call my own on this planet.


Another key aspect you will notice in my work is the balance and interplay of light and shadow. I feel this is important in our personalities as well. Head in the clouds and feet on the ground. My life, personal work, and endeavors in guiding others would be wrapped up by the effort to play with and balance light and shadow within each of us. I am fascinated by the importance of polarity and hope you will take pleasure in that too if you decide to purchase any of my art. It is designed for healing your spirit and your psyche.

I look forward to sharing more visuals, music, and my life with you here on this adventure.

My Sacred Connection With You

What have you been up to today? Ping me in the spirit world or online. It’s all about community and I thrive from our sacred connection. Let’s uplift each other and if we can’t make the world a better place, then certainly a more funky place will suffice.

Sending lots of love from the DC metro area.
