I don’t know if you remember me. I did a multimedia event and art booth at your amazing women’s conscious conference in Scottsdale in the ’90s. Then you used my visionary art in your conscious woman’s magazine.
[She’s referring to Crones Counsel III, held in Scottsdale, Arizona. And the magazine was Crone Chronicles (1989-2001). I just went through my stack of well-thumbed copies, and here’s Mary Saint Marie’s gorgeous cover art for Winter Solstice issue 1995. Fully 18 years ago.]
I have always been so touched with what you were creating and sharing. And recently I had the feeling to be in touch with you. I found Anne at Crone Magazine via googling.
[Crone Magazine is the successor to Crone Chronicles magazine. I agreed to serve as the founding editor for that magazine for the first three years, at publisher Anne Niven’s request, turning it over to her in 2012. Back issues of Crone Chronicles are archived and still for sale through Anne Niven at bbimedia.com.]
Thank you for sending me your websites. Again, I am touched with your next level of inspiring work with permaculture and the Green Acres, etc.
It seems we are both guided to work with The Mother Earth!
Here’s a youtube interview with her:
The write-up below the interview includes this biographical info, deeply interesting for one such as me!
Nature was the first potent childhood teacher of Mary. Here she learned she could experience a deep connectedness with nature. Her formal university education included a degree in Education-English, after which she spent eight years teaching high school and college English, Mythology and Communication. She was also a coordinator in public educational TV. Simultaneously Mary studied fine art at the University of Wisconsin. Soon after this Mary had a spontaneous soul merging which was followed by a head-on car collision that provided the opening to see her life via her soul…as pure joy. After this, Mary could see emanations of light around living things. The exalted experience of the collision initiated a new life. Mary was inspired to begin her life as an artist and to make a solo journey ‘overland’, with a kelty pack filled with one change of clothing and art supplies on her back, to Spain, Morocco, Italy, Greece, Crete, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Kashmir, where she felt the art, culture, heart and soul of those peoples and began to find the Silence within. Her first exhibit was created on that journey.
Mary’s visionary art is inspirational and mirrors our Oneness with Creator AS Creation. It is a reflection of the sacred marriage of earth and sky. It is a journey into the land of Archetypal realms of the wholeness that Already IS. The paintings are witness to the Law of Balance, that is the law of love. The paintings reveal the Dance of the One as the yin and yang of the Universe. The paintings are multi-dimensional, multi-technique and multi-media. They are a unique and inwardly guided expression.
“Sacred marriage of earth and sky” . . . notice the exopermaculture motto, “Bridging Above and Below.”
Mary and I have agreed to call ourselves soul sisters.
