Rowena is a talented artist with a brilliant mind. Her passion has been to live life “at one with the One,” using her gifts for humanity. Over the past fifty years, Rowena has created thousands of art works and has published a number of books and oracle systems. Rowena has always maintained her autonomy, supporting herself through her art, her workshops and sales of her materials. She was in a comfortable place for retirement until four years ago. Since 2008, she has experienced a number of shocking reversals. Two years ago, she lost her home. At 76, Rowena is physically depleted and has used up all her financial reserves. She is currently living in austere circumstances in Reno, Nevada.
Even during these times of duress, Rowena has continued to work. In 2011, she developed Soul Fire, a card deck with accompanying detailed. Soul Fire details the journey of the soul as it moves out from the Creator and then integrates its understanding and begins to move back to Oneness. In birthing this system, Rowena did original 18” X 24” paintings of each of the 82 cards that make up the story of the soul. For her wish, Rowena would like to have 34 of these 82 original paintings matted and framed. This would be a step toward preserving her work and getting it out to the world.
She wishes to see 34 of her original paintings matted and framed. This would bring her such joy and a feeling of pride to see them hanging on the wall. We need your help to raise $2,300 to cover the cost of framing these special pieces. Please consider donating to help make Rowena's wish come true.
