Cynthia Gough is an artist and creativity breakthrough mentor. Art has always been a major part of her life, but postpartum depression, financial hardship, relationship trials, and other life-altering hard times caused the art to dry up for a period of 9 years. It wasn't until making the conscious decision to make creativity an everyday part of her life, that everything changed. Cynthia has since learned how to connect energy healing with art in a very powerful way. And through these methods, she has experienced amazing results!
Lillian Poston-Lilly loves her Savior, Jesus Christ, very much. As a little girl, she was captured by paintings of Him. Her dream is to paint for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Her hope is to create images that stir the soul and invite the spirit. She believes that sharing her art will not only put a smile on a face, but also mold her into the person she was meant to be.
Jen DeMille-Painting for me is creating and re-creating through my own eyes. I started creating art as a small child at the age of 3. Looking back I can see that I was using it to express and heal myself. I now have been consciously using painting as a way to learn and heal my past. I love seeing people’s eyes light up and the emotions they experience when viewing a piece of my art.
Katie Smith-I love burning things! Contrary to popular speculation however, I am not an arsonist. In fact, my impulses come from quite a different source. On the farm in Spanish Fork, Utah where I grew up, I (along with my six siblings) spent most days either reading, or running outdoors barefoot and making things out of baling twine and burdock leaves. For as long as I can recall, I have loved taking objects that seem inconsequential and creating something interesting with them. But when my husband and I moved into our current home in Clearfield and I took my first look at the dauntingly enourmous wall in our kitchen, I had no idea what that love of creation would lead to. After three years of failing to find anything remotely large enough to fill this wall, I decided that the intimidation must be stopped, and appalled my husband by showing up at the front door dragging a gigantic piece of wood behind me. The next weeks were full of painstaking trial and error, but with some stubborn persistence and my husband's brilliant input, the result was a huge 4'x6' burned replica of the Salt Lake City LDS temple hanging on the no-longer empty wall. That was the beginning, and even though I still enjoy "forgetting" to wear my shoes outside or staying up all night with a good book, the twine and leaves have been replaced. Now I burn things instead!
