Damini Celebre is an artist and subtle energy healer. Influenced by Frankenthaler, Kandinsky, Twombly, Chagall and the movements of Japanese Ukiyo-e, Zen Sumi-e, Abstract Expressionism, Post-Painterly Abstraction, 19C American Landscape Painters and Aboriginal and Huichol yarn art, Ms. Celebre integrates her healing and creative worlds through the metaphor of Landscapes; the internal landscape of Soul and external landscape of Nature. Currently, she is exploring the energetic and vital connection to self and the natural world through the multi-layered mediums of drawing, painting, encaustic, and printmaking.
Damini has studied with Jeanne Bessette and Kazuaki Tanahashi, she holds a BFA in Painting and Photography from the California Institute of the Arts, a Masters Degree in Acupuncture, and is a Certified Expressive Art Facilitator and shamanic practitioner. Ms. Celebre just completed an artist in residency at OCHO, Questa NM. Presently, she is exploring new ideas and techniques from that residency and is preparing for an upcoming residency in February, 2017 at Elephant Butte Lake Artist Retreat, New Mexico.
“I am a lover of the natural worlds, magical worlds, and the inner realms. I am always seeking to deepen and broaden the relationship of the viewer or student to invite greater connection to self and the world around us.” She combines her three passions: Shamanism, creative arts, and healing arts, to skillfully weave what she knows and loves into a unique and powerful approach to awakening the creative self.
Shamanic art is not a representation of healing, it is powerful and profound healing power.
Healing happens when we remember, reconnect, and balance our relationship to the Spirit That Lives In All Things. My paintings explore Landscapes. Landscape of Place and Landscapes of Spirit, and the healing that comes with honoring the relationship with those places. This work is a prayer, a blessing, an offering to the Web of Life.
Commissions: I love to work personally on commissions. >more info
