Josie painted my gorgeous “Goddess Medicine Wheel” for my Motherhood Journey work and I have also had the pleasure of attending one of her “Clay Priestess” workshops. I am no artist but her easy guidance helped me to create a beautiful goddess sculpture all by myself, it was fun, creative and therapeutic! She is an incredible artist and passionate advocate of the feminine…
“The Goddess is on the rise! I know it! I feel it and see it every day- in the mirror, in my soul and in the eyes and spirits of all the women around me, I see her presence effecting change in the media, in the children, in the men, in the culture,……I firmly believe that as women rise up and remember the truth of who they really are, the life giving, powerful, beautiful nurturers of life and love and the soul realms, as we reclaim ourselves as the keepers of sacred wisdom and creation…..the world is healed and changed…subtly at times, but tangibly nonetheless ….I paint to express my own journey back to my deep feminine heart…..I paint to honour and normalise womens bodies, the large, the emptied, the impregnated, the too thin, the small, the “out of proportion” the saggy breasted, the small breasted, the large thighed truth of what we are, I paint to honour it, I paint to normalise it, I paint to revel in the beauty of it!…….I paint to inspire other women, to remind other women and girls- and men! of the beauty and sacredness the colorfulness and softness, the boldness and depth, the connection and authenticity, the power and the stillness of the mother goddess, the maiden, the crone, the child, the sisterhood and the sheer soul healing powers and beauty of women and of our glorious mother earth and the magnificent beauty of her natural creation which is so clearly our own essence and reflection…”
Josie runs women’s clay priestess sculpture workshops and womens medicine circle retreats around the Byron shire and up and down the east coast of Australia…she sells prints on paper/canvas and clothing and originals and loves doing personailsed commissions!
