I have been drawing, painting and generally creating since I could hold a pencil, it’s my happy place where I feel completely strong and confident. I grew up on a hippie commune in Lawrence, KS. we had our own tiny school where we were encouraged to create and discover. Moving into public school I struggled with school subjects and with confidence. It didn’t seem that creativity was valued as it was in my younger life. I found myself confused and lost. I’ve always been drawn to the female figure and practiced endlessly getting proportions and shadows right. I realized later that, through my art, I was trying to capture a feeling; a feeling that I never had in my physical life of calm confidence. Of being all powerful, never doubting, above all of the little problems of the world. I realized my story was one that many women could relate to in their own personal way, and that the image of strong femininity, of freedom and self expression, spoke to them. I truly believe that only when women are in their rightful place of equality, will the world heal and we have to be strong and confident in order to take on this big job that we have ahead of us. I hope to add to this collective spirit of goddess mentality that I feel is arising within our planet.
By appt. until Sept 1, 2021
NAPS & NOURISHMENT with Laura Martin-Eagle
“There is power and transformation in the collapse onto the floor. In the breaking open. There is courage in being vulnerable and not apologizing for being a human being. Anything else is just tiring.” ~The Nap Ministry
Dear Sisters, the circle has opened…Take our hands and join our circle of women dedicated to the journey of wild abandon and holy ecstasy~ We dive deep to the realms of intuitive, visceral and instinctual movement to invite and invoke our deepest healing essence as we move our bodies in our shapeshifting beauty, wisdom and power. I look forward to being with you again in all your vulnerability and authenticity. This round we will dance with ease and we will rest and be fed. It’s a radical act to take a nap, lounge, do nothing. For 6 months, we will join together for restful storytime, snacktime and dancetime. You deserve it.
