Featured Artist - Dorothy Berry-Lound

Today's featured artist is Dorothy Berry-Lound, also known as ShannathShima, who promotes life, work and energy balance through her art, poetry and writing. 

She is a Tai Chi instructor and Reiki Master and a member of the Fellowship of Authors and Artists and the Arts and Healing Network. This is an important focus for her artwork and she has developed a range of healing art and colour harmony images. 
Tranquility Amongst Chaos
The images she creates always have a story, a message she is trying to get across or imagery to make you stop and think. She also produces art for interior decor that contributes to the balance and harmony of the home and office and would make good book covers or music artwork. 

An article written about her spiritual artwork appeared in The Healing Power of Art and Artists 
Lady in the Looking Glass
Dorothy specialises in photo painting - using her own photographs and using digital software and her imagination to develop the images further with colours and textures. The three example images posted here are examples of that technique. This technique has also led to the development of 'Barnie Paw Print Designs' which are a series of designs based around a set of her dog Barnie's paw prints found in what should have been pristine concrete!
