GRACE MANTLE SORENSEN | Healing Art and Messages for our New Earth

Artist's Statement

My fine art reflects my commitment to doing my part for the healing of humanity and our relationship with the Creator and Earth. I combine traditional art training with direct visionary experience and the understanding I have gained in my inner spiritual life. As a Reiki Master, I integrate "universal life force healing energy" into each work of art. My intention is to create transformational visions for healing, and to lead the viewer closer to the Divine Presence within and around us. It is my joy when those who see my artwork receive the message of Love that each visual prayer has to give, and allow it to gently light up their lives. I feel honored to be a woman artist living in America at this time.
