Elizabeth (also known as Liz).
Elizabeth Shewan's unique quirky style takes you into a world of friendships and characters, spiritual meanings, peace and beauty within the natural world.
Everything I create holds a purity of silence and spaciousness, with their simplicity they allow each one of us to bring our own story to the image.
I aim to ‘Inspire your Heart’ and create peace for those who care to tap into it.
My philosophy is simple: energy is everything, so work at creating peace and contentment and it will help your mind, body and soul.
I have been creating all my life, my favourite place as a child was in the art room, and not much has changed since!
From the deeply mysterious to the wildlife connection, I have many series exploring being, not doing. Peace, kindness, indulgence in the most important things. Being lost in the moment. Being able to let go.
Always exalting deep contemplation and connection with the divine within my work. And divinity is in all things, so there is no limit to where this can go.
I have been a professional artist for over 20 years.
I have been a professional artist for over 20 years, and during that time I have explored MANY different mediums and styles - you can always tell it’s my work, no matter what I create I have been told – be it drawing, painting, sculpture or jewellery.
Art has helped me get through this journey of life - the art studio is where much of my healing has taken place.
Much of my work is constantly growing and inspired by my experiences with various healing modalities and from when I connect to the wilds of nature.
I am an active member of the Visionary Arts Community, regularly facilitating educational workshops for regional artists. I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but have lived in the West Country for over 20 years, based in Dorset now. I have held exhibitions nationally and been featured regularly in Glastonbury, Bridport, Hampshire, London, Manchester, Buckinghamshire and Lyme Regis (to name a few) both through self promotion and by galleries representation. My work is loved by art lovers, animal lovers, spiritually minded, collectors and those looking to take their first steps into the world of fine art; and is featured in collections in the UK, Brazil, France, USA, New Zealand, Spain and Ireland.
At this present time I am a member of an artist co-operative at the Cygnet Gallery in Shaftesbury where I have a small permanent display of my paintings, sculptures, jewellery and cards which you can visit during opening hours. You can visit my online shop here.
If you would like to meet me in person to look at my art then we can arrange a time with me to meet at the Cygnet Gallery... I am there manning the gallery once a week and the rest of the time I am in my studio tucked away somewhere else, either creating or giving online healing sessions.
At the moment I am also designing a tarot deck called ‘The Hare Tarot Deck’ which I will then launch using Kickstarter. If love tarot and you love hares then you can follow their design progress to launch here.
STUDIO, GALLERY AND OFFICE ASSISTANT
The Little One
Now semi-retired, the little one helps me with time keeping, connecting with nature and the hoovering. When we run events she greets everyone who comes to the door and shows them around. She loves interacting with people and always accompanies me on workshop and during tutorials. People really appreciate her sweet nature.
I also offer tarot readings and healing sessions
Without going into much detail my relationships in life have often been challenging. But this experience has allowed me much learning and like everything in life I can see it's lessons and silver linings - and these experiences have taught me my skills today - both art and healing.
Inside I have been through suffering, more often than not invisible, often it has been a struggle to find true happiness.
Narcissistic and psychopathic injury can be complicated and devastating.
But this first hand healing
from this experience
as a consequence has shown me ways
to help you work through
the terrible insidious wounds
created by this damaging journey
to a place of peace and balance
One of many things I recognise from such a journey is that decision making can be hard, and often there are areas in one's life that one needs to be shown, taught even, how to be in relationship both with oneself and with others, how to simply be, act, think, decide, what's OK and what's not OK.
Finding one's own moral compass can be hazy at best when under so much stress and anxiety, and control even... It creates a fog that blocks the way through to the sun - the sun that keeps us alive.
Shame, anxiety and worry eats away at your health and well-being. You often feel alone even when surrounded by others. Alone one can imagine the worst in everything, feel unheard or misunderstood by many, and one can loose oneself in the noise and clutter of life, even in a room where there is silence.
This isolation is a silent killer.
YOU CAN FIND PEACE WITHIN
I have done much self healing and have reached a place where I am content and at peace within myself.
If you are not already, you can be content and at peace within yourself too!
MY ART WILL BRING IT,
AND MY SESSIONS CAN HELP YOU TOO
I know what kind of a hell life can be, and I don't want to see you stay stuck in this unhealthy place.
It is my passion in life to help you and others alike who could really gain from the guidance I offer, helping you through your troubles to a place where you also find peace and love within.
I have helped hundreds of people and animals in this way for many years now, and will continue to do so.
If any of this sounds familiar to you I can help you through this, hold your hand, offer you insights, show you ways, give you tools, step by step, find a life of calm, grounded, protected and balanced. Find your contentment. Help you reinvent yourself.
In your sessions my speciality is I can offer reassurance and hope, guiding you to a place where you find peace within you no matter what else is going on around you - specific to you and your circumstances by using my clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience and claircognizance.
Born with an innate gift, after years of study, I have over 15 years I practice as an Energy Healing Consultant for both people and animals. .
I can hone in on an issue and pinpoint the root before you even realise, and help you to see things differently, feel things differently resulting in supporting your health and well-being.
I help my clients understand how energy works in our lives, and how to manage energy so that it helps you to move out of pain, shame and anxiety.
Once you understand how it works you can get better at navigating relationships and making balanced conscious decisions that can help steer you wherever you want to go in life in a calm, balanced and content way.
I help you with energy clearing in times of difficulty during a session or when you feel you need it at other times - the added assistance of another’s energy to help shift something hefty is sometimes needed.
But I don’t do all the work for you, I encourage personal responsibility all the way otherwise you are wasting both your time and mine!
In short: It’s all about you feeling OK in your own skin no matter what.
The heart, being the centre of human power, has an intelligence and intuition that helps us to connect to the great spirit of all things. Igniting that connection within you I aim to inspire being, not doing. To inspire peace, kindness, indulgence in the most important things. Being lost in the moment. Being able to let go.
