Soul Revelation Portraits
Much in the same way that I had been painting my experiences with nature, revealing, embodying and purifying the souls of plants and places on the earth, I am able to tune into individuals and paint their soul essences. Each painting serves an energetic clearing and healing, as well as a meditation device, as I tune into your field and channel through the brush what I see and feel. The embodiment of the soul through paint is a grounding force and reveals what needs to be cleared and worked on. I download notes that reveal more of your essence that I send to you along with a photograph of the painting. These can be done remotely, no need to be in physical presence.

Ever since I was a child, painting and drawing has been a way for me to heal. It was through the creation of beauty around me and my connection with source that allowed me to survive years of trauma. I discovered early on that Spirit came through my art, and as soon as I put pen to paper, its presence flowed through me.
I dropped out of MIT and was offered to transfer into the painting department at Harvard University, where I literally painted my way through. It was through my initial interest in creating space that I found colors to be the portals to an expansive realm beyond our physical reality. Painting became a spiritual practice for me. I proceeded to have 3 more solo exhibitions in New York City before an awakening compelled me to listen to the calling to be with nature and connect with my higher self. I relocated to California in 2009. My journey connecting spirit with the earth led me to Iceland and the Chihuahuan Desert where I was an Artist in Resident at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, TX in 2013.
While living in a museum, I immersed herself in the desert landscape and painted my experiences in nature, leading to a body of work I then exhibited in San Francisco. Further exploration led to my first body of shamanic paintings, In Reality, in 2015 in Los Angeles, and the publishing of a catalogue of drawings, The Light Behind the Sun. Shortly after this I began to read Akashic Records for myself and others, leading me to Santa Fe, NM, and then to Mount Shasta, CA, where I discovered my first home.
I embarked on a journey by listening to a call in my heart to go to Peru, where a dream led me to Nosara, Costa Rica. I immediately experienced a strong connection with the place and began receiving messages in the form of paintings and words which led to The Golden Light Channel Medicine Cards. It was here that I discovered that I could not only paint the experiences I had in nature but also the experiences I have with people when I connect with the highest part of themselves and depict their soul essences. I also began to combine healing sessions with Reiki and Akashic Records, along with before and after drawings of the transformations that took place. Alongside these sessions, I also guided Dancing into Painting.
Yuh-Shioh currently resides on the Big Island, Hawaii.
