“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.” ~ Mary Oliver

Drea is an artist, writer and teacher who uses her creative abilities to express emotion through her paintings. Using the internet she creates a sacred gallery which places her work out in the world. She also uses intuition and techniques from Shiloh Sophia’s Blooming Artist Coaching, to open doors and create with clarity. Her paintings express, acknowledge and celebrate her self expression as an artist, and encourages others to express their unique selves.

“In each painting I am committed to creating sacred space, portals into imagination using abstract expression, color and texture. My paintings express an internal landscape that provokes emotions.”

Drea shares a loving connection with her spirit guide and grandmother, Pearl B. Hardy, also a painter. Pearl supports a link to the artist’s creative heart, provides a source of wisdom and gratitude, and is at the soul of her paintings. Born in Laramie, Wyoming, Drea currently lives in Green Valley with her son.

  1. Hi Drea,

    I was looking for some of Mary Oliver’s poems online and stumbled on your website. Your paintings are very beautiful and I was moved that you reach out to others in your artist statement to “encourage [them] to express their unique selves.”

    As a writer, I am very committed not only to growing as a writer, but also to reaching out to other writers; to nurture and encourage them to express themselves creatively. I live in Pittsburgh and enjoy giving writing workshops in art galleries where writers can encounter visual art and write in response to it.

    I hope you continue to paint and inspire others with your beautiful creations.

    Sheila Kelly
