As mentioned in my earlier post ... I am really taken with Sheleah Nahshon's artwork. Whilst talking with her I asked if she'd like to answer a few questions, seven in fact ... I'm delighted to say she agreed.
This is what Sheleah had to say:
1) Who are you and what do you do?
I am Sheleah Nahshon... I am playful creative explorer who plays within the realms of photographic and digital art, sound and crystals... and my great love is being a mother to our son Phoenix.
2) What are you working on at the moment?
I am working on a deck of cards which can be used for inspiration contemplation and reflection they are fractal based in there designs... I am organizing a gathering called "Awaken the Global Heart" which will be a day of community gathering together in a space of love sharing and celebration..And I am collaborating with my beautiful partner Simon (Symatic Star) and Christopher Alvarado on an album plus various other albums with Simon.
3) Who inspires you?
I am inspired by anyone who is true to themselves... I love Rumi's divine poetry, Terence Mckenna's inter dimensional perspectives, Ani Choying Drolma's compassionate heart and voice... so many awesome beings!!! like my beautiful family: Simon has being a very empowering influence inspiring me to stay true to my passionate heart and express myself fearlessly... and our son Phoenix inspires wonder and curiosity about all of life mysteries... he is pure joy!!!
4) What drives you to do what you do?
I can't help myself it's my nature I have a creative temperament... I have to create... It's my flow state meditation with creation.
5) What values do you wish your creativity to express?
An open mind and heart; harmony, love and joy; dance with life in the sea of unlimited possibilities.
6) What role does community play in what you do?
I envision that through the creations of sound and image a sense of interconnection with the mystery of life is inspired and experienced.
7) What is next for what you do?
Looping. Comparable to layering imagery I love looping for similar reasons, you get into a flow state trance with layering soundscapes...I will be looping drones of my crystal and Tibetan bowls with voice.
Thanks Sheleah ... keep creating amazing pieces of art like your recent cover for Christopher Alvarado's album - Creation By Inertia (waag_rel052).
