El futuro siempre se acerca y siempre es incierto. A veces creo que soy artista y a veces creo que no. Ando siempre calibrando eso. Mientras tanto espero que todo mejore para todos.

Kindred Spirits: The Installation: Los Platos de Santos: St. Eligius
St. Eligius is an acrylic painting on a terra cotta baking dish. I decided to supplicate to St. Eligius for several reasons. Not only is he the patron saint of metalsmiths, but he is also a patron saint of engineers.
It may not be well known, but I myself am a metalsmith, having spent a good deal of time with my head bowed over a foredom flex shaft or bench pin. I first ventured into metal working to help me heal from PTSD associated with a traumatic childbirth experience and damages caused by my epidural to my spinal cord and central nervous system. Learning how to create amazing fine art in metal certainly lead me down a deep healing journey. Although I am not currently sitting at a bench regularly, I am sure I will return to the world of Metals when the time is right. As a Shaman who works with the Elements regularly in alchemical ritual and ceremonial practices, I listen to their lessons and move with materials as Spirit guides me. Spirit was very adamant about me stepping away from metal work when the pandemic hit. I then was able to finally get an MRI for my brain injuries, and was told any metalworking could have left shards in my eyes that the machine would pull out. But spirit had prepared me and I had not done any fine metal work in 9 months. This is why you supplicate!
Additionally, my fiancé is a Process Controls Technician for an engineering company, as well as being an electrician by trade. It was fascinating to me how St. Eligius brought us together on the left-brain wave-lengths, and is a guide to either side of your brain (left or right) in the creative processes of life. 
I learned later that he is also best known in the UK for being a patron saint of horses, and those that work with them. No surprise, I moved into a home right next door to a horse ranch when my previous home was flooded and uninhabitable. This is why you supplicate!

Prayer to St. Eligius *Also called St. Eloi
St. Eloi, with your hands you wrought beauty and with your heart you won friends and through both you glorified God. Befriend us, dear saint, and pray that we will use our God-given talents to serve Him. Amen.

Los Platos De Santos is a collection of found plates and kitchen wares, many of them abandoned with me by their owners, and completely forgotten. Like many of my found-object pieces, I am focused on elevating objects and transforming their energy. This Collection is deeply tied to my roots and education in Catholic traditions. More encompassing than Catholic culture, this collection has grown to be expressive of the shared cannon with the Voudou tradition. My shamanic apprentice and Vousidant RJ Walker is often giving me ideas of new Loa to add to our growing collection of patrons. Personally, this collection stemmed from financial insecurity & abuse, which has unfortunately been a major part of my lived experience of the past decade. With each painting, I prayed for a new life.

Kindred Spirits: The Installation: Los Platos de Santos: St. Anne
Saint Anne is an acrylic painting on a terra cotta baking dish that randomly showed up on the porch of my studio during a cleaning spree. I say randomly because objects really have “just appeared” in my life for sometime. Perhaps it was left there by a student or client who had come by for a healing session.
Because I was dealing with so much financial scarcity due to a financial abuser in my life, I used this painting as vehicle of prayer for healing from such wounds - not only for myself, but for others. And truly, that has been the prayer for each piece: that it not only heals me, but the customers & clients of the store (Kindred Spirits) where this painting is installed, and the eventual owner of the piece.
That’s the special thing about Shamanic Art - it’s art, yes. And art is a healing experience in and of itself. But more than fine art, this is a piece of shamanic ritual and prayer for the collective feminine consciousness. 
St. Anne was known as the grandmother of Jesus, and the mother of the Virgin Mary. She is supplicated to for the protection of one's home and family members. She is the ultimate Matron. This is why, when installing her hardware, I put little houses as a special detail.
My own mother has always had a deep devotion to St. Anne and recommends praying to her for all woes navigated by a Matron in her women’s mysteries.

Novena To St. Anne:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. O St. Anne, you are my spiritual grandmother. Please pray for me!  I come to you today knowing that you know what it’s like to wait on God to answer your heart’s greatest desires.  I come to you today asking that you will ask God to grant my petition the way that He granted yours.  I ask that you pray, St. Anne, to ask Our Lord to have mercy and favor on me.  Please pray for… (Mention your intentions here). But most of all, please pray that I may be open to God’s will the way that you were, and that I will be able to wait with patience, perseverance in faith and hope, and with absolute trust in the Lord’s plan for me.  Amen.

Aespa "Next Level" Review
Aespa “Next Level” Review
Earlier today, Aespa released their new single, Next Level. A music video accompanied the single’s release. 
Aespa’s debut with Black Mamba had a lot of mixed opinions. Some thought that it was unoriginal, others thought it was a solid release. I fall under the latter. I strongly believed – and still do – that it was a little too soon to judge the group and label them too harshly. I wanted to…
