Hello! I'm Shifra Wylder. Thanks for taking the time to check out my website. Here's a little info about me.
When I was in elementary school, my favorite time of day was when I was allowed to draw and paint in art class. As I got older, this love never faded and eventually I went to college in my hometown of Boston to study art.
At the time I was more interested in music than art. Attending 4 concerts a week hardly allowed time to complete homework. I finished out the year then moved to California to model.
Eventually I found my way back to art and worked as a production artist in advertising for 15 years.
Following a family tragedy, I decided to go back to college, got a degree in Psychology and became an addictions counselor and coach.
10 years later I burned out and adrenal fatigue set in. I had no choice but to rest and heal. During the healing process I discovered while helping many others, I'd lost myself.
Driving home one day feeling exhausted, I was listening to Lauren Daigle's song "My Revival" I had an epiphany. My weary soul was sick, tired and needed a revival.
I began taking art classes, attending workshops and was creatively inspired. My soul slowly started to heal and revive. Out of that sacred space, Soul Revival Art materialized.
I am currently creating intuitive art. I'm a recovering perfectionist and need to get out of my head and into the flow, not judging what is created. This is where I find creating art to be the most freeing.
I am experimenting with many different techniques and mediums such as, oils, acrylics, gouache, markers and pastels. At this stage,
I believe working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
I also include my photography in the photo gallery as part of the creative art process.
I'm inspired by nature, travel, cultural experiences, spirituality and the creative arts in all forms.
My artwork reflects different aspects of my soul, personality and stages of life.
When I create expressive, abstract art, I am consciously and subconsciously releasing emotions. This allows me to discover my highest potential for growth and creativity.
By embracing my own healing process, I am inspired through my workshops to assist you in your process or help you discover what you need to express authentically, through creating your own art.
We're all on this remarkable journey together. Let's buckle up and enjoy the ride!
