Hi and welcome,
I love working with people, travelling, playing with colour and creating with mixed media.
I am a spiritual artist, psychic, healer and author and I love teaching my workshops in art and spiritual practice.
I am available for art commissions and projects, art workshops, energy readings and healings and guest speaking on artistic or spiritual practices.
My love of travel has taken me to many wonderful destinations in the world. I soak it all in – from the buzz and excitement of planning a trip, to the return home and reflection of the culture I have experienced. This profound process, the range of emotions and experiences we open up to, as well as the people we meet when we travel are reflected in my work.
In my art practice I enjoy the feeling of immersing myself in the creative process, getting lost in time where everything drops away. It takes me to places I’ve never been before and it helps get me out of my head, to let go and have fun, and this is what I teach you to do in my art classes. You can join my live workshops (subject to availability) or sign-up to any number of my online courses that teach you to tap into your spiritual connection and artistic self, including Gold Lotus Oracle certification for those who want to grow a spiritual business.
I am currently working on commissions, personal projects and am always guest speaking at events. If you are interested in a commissioned art work or having me speak at your event, contact me and we can discuss the process and what you want to achieve. It’s incredibly humbling to work with clients and I thoroughly enjoy the process of getting to know you and your needs to bring your project to reality.
My art background is varied, I started early in drawing and charcoal but didn’t focus and art weaved in-and-out of my life. This changed when my children came along and I used my time out to create. I also love sewing and have made many dolls, toys and children’s clothes. Some of my children’s range was hand painted fabric, as well making my girls fairy costumes out of recycled fabric and dresses. Working with fabrics saw me delve into art quilts and textured media and to my works becoming award winning art quilts touring the USA after selection in a worldwide competition, something of which I am extremely proud. My works are held in collections in Australia and USA. This journey through art, learning various styles and working with different mediums gives my art its unique movement and texture.
Although I always relied on spiritual energy in my artistic practice, I hadn’t yet melded them into one business until I began to create the Gold Lotus Oracle deck, with 47 original artworks developed to print on glossy, thick and beautifully gold foiled cards. It was developed over many years and is my pride and joy, which has helped hundreds of people globally on their spiritual journey.
If you want to keep up with what is happening at Michelle Mann HQ subscribe to my newsletter, plus follow me on Facebook and Instagram. It will be so nice to have you on this journey with me and you won’t miss any give aways or live readings, hurrah!
