Description This is a coloured pencil sketch I created as art editor for the Whispering Grey Matters newsletter, which is the official school paper of the Grey School of Wizardry.(The Bard issue, summer 2007). I just love this drawing. I saw it so clearly in my mind, the transformation had to come out on paper.
Areeya Marie ***, las vegas Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement Areeya is a unique artist, in the Las Vegas art scene. She is exploring her vision of elemental and mystical art with a tribal feel. Giving birth to a new form of art meditation with the versatile healing capabilities of color therapy.
Areeya was encouraged over the years to explore many creative paths. She has delved into sketching, painting, the sacred art of Hula, ritual theater, and jewelry design. She is a flautist, but recently found a love for percussion instruments. Areeya combines many of these art forms to create a vibrant and unique expression of contemporary art, focusing on the use of color for wellness.
Areeya currently enjoys working in several mediums including: acrylics, color pencils, charcoals, stained glass jewels, Swarovski crystals and mirrors. Whenever possible, she enjoys creating pieces that are tactile as well as visually therapeutic.
Influenced by many local Las Vegas street artists as well as, those abroad, it is Marc Chagall's vibrant use of colors in his paintings and stained glass art that touch her most profoundly. Areeya's work can be viewed regularly on the West side, at the Go Raw Cafe by the Lakes in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is also featured regularly at the Arts Factory in the Blue Sky Gallery located downtown Las Vegas, in the Arts District. She is currently active in facilitating ritual theater in her local area to perpetuate wellness and self transformation. She also is live painting regularly for the Las Vegas N.O.I.S.E Project in the art district. Areeya has become more involved with community projects in Las Vegas, and abroad, donating her time to local events and schools for at risk children. She offers her art meditation workshops for personal wellness,in private sessions or groups sessions. Areeyaworld Art is her newest endeavor. An online store, offering original fine artwork, with its emphasis on color therapy, in a multitude of meditative and magickal visions, through greeting cards and prints.
