Pattie Ann Hale, a native of the Appalachian Mountains of Southwest Virginia, works daily in her professional studio and gallery in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. She is a visual artist, writer, and teacher who focuses on the connection to the sacred through art. Her spiritual expression is primarily carried out through oils and acrylics on canvas. As she creates intuitively through a process of movement, prayer and play, her art mysteriously unfolds from a place of journeying in the spirit and the visual story comes into surprising existence. The resulting paintings are expressive offerings of metaphorical images, abstraction, and a reflection of movement. Her layers of color and perspective create depth and dimension which invites one to see beyond the natural and into the place of the spirit. Her art is inspirational, contemplative and provoking.
Journeyartfully: Secrets for Living an Artful Life
Pattie Ann Hale
This thought-provoking and life-shifting book by artist and teacher, Pattie Ann Hale, is an invitation to live artfully. The artful life is a deeply spiritual life which brings those who will embark upon it into a deeper understanding of creation, God's heart, community, and themselves. This book will open one to new doors of creativity, love, soulfulness and spiritual encounter through the sacredness of everyday living, seeing divine nature in the entirety of life.
Is there something more to life? Does the aching of it call out to you every time you quiet yourself enough to hear the calling? Every moment from this moment on beckons you to reach into your truest nature and be the creative one you are even now designed to be - the one you are right now - today - in this moment. We are all artists made in the image of God. We all have the ability to live artfully. It is a life that brings the 'something more.' It is a life that requires you to take risks - risks to love, lead, dream, break boundaries, be outrageously yourself and forget the old ways that do not serve you anymore. You must trust your intuition. You must trust that you know the voice of God. You must trust the you who longs for the something more. Life awaits you. One never knows how beautiful the dance will be until the music begins. Listen for it.
