Ashes to Art

Having jewellery made with the ashes of a loved one as a keepsake, is very popular.

I don’t make jewellery, but I do create energy art, and as I work in a very shamanic way, I offer this service to those who are looking to preserve a little of the ashes of a loved one in something beautiful for their home.

I use healing breath and Reiki energies to allow the ashes to flow and embed into the paint, creating beautiful energetic abstract images.

The process is a beautiful experience for me, as I connect with the loved one, and paint intuitively. The space is set slightly differently to my usual work, so I can ensure the ashes are treated with the gentle respect they deserve.

I have elements from the four directions around me –

Feathers symbolising air to smudge the paper, filtered crystal energised water, a pure soy candle, or incense for the fire element, and flowers or crystals from the earth chosen specifically for the piece.

For this work I always use handmade rag paper from a paper mill on Exmoor to ensure the highest vibrations are held within the painting.

All pieces are framed locally by a framer who has the ultimate respect for the work he is given, so I am safe in the knowledge that the whole process is kept sacred from start to finish.

I’m not always clairvoyant, so I won’t have messages for you, but I can assure you that your piece of art is being created with love and understanding of the impact a lost loved one can have on your family.

How to commission a piece of work.

Please contact me so we can discuss your requirements.

Each piece is so individual and can vary in size.

To ensure the ashes reach me safely, I suggest that you send them recorded delivery. I only need a tablespoon at the most. The ashes are kept in a special case, and any that are unused will be returned.

Prices start from £330 for a piece framed to 12” square.
