About Me

Hi, I’m Susan Korsnick– the Art Priestess.  I integrate creativity, ritual, and spirituality to illuminate the little joys of everyday life, the importance of honoring the earth and all beings, and the sacredness that permeates all.  Familiar images from world religions and earth-centered traditions are woven together with my personal symbology to visually express what words cannot adequately say.

As a painter, illustrator, surface pattern designer, I use watercolors, ink, and colored pencils to express my artistic vision.  Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop are used to edit art and create surface designs for a wide range of products from home decor and outdoor living items to apparel and stationery. Versatility is one of my superpowers!

As a teacher, guide, and certified Creatively Fit Coach, I help others discover their self-worth, build confidence, and connect more deeply to their intuition and Higher Selves.     

Interests include being with those I love, laughter, relaxing at the beach, coffee, chocolate, concerts in the park, traveling, Saturday mornings at the bookstore, and celebrating the Wheel of the Year.  You can find me in my studio, leading art and soul retreats, teaching workshops, or out and about with my sketchbook.

Life is a journey of LOVE that begins with loving one’s Self then radiating love into the world to affect positive change.

By choosing to walk a path of LOVE, I …
release what no longer serves,
honor my inner wisdom, commit to bringing joy and beauty to the world,
and courageously make choices so I can live and share my best life.expre
