"Through creating my paintings I continually discover and cultivate my true Self. My creative process assists me on my personal evolution and spiritual journey and growth. Inspiration for my work is derived from visioning and dreamscapes that are channeled through minds eye and sleep state. I would like to think that my audience relates to the images in such a way that they are inspired to investigate their own personal evolution and speak to their Spirit. I continue to practice Yoga, Reiki, Shamanic studies and Energy healing."- Leslie Howitt
