Lisa Iris

Lisa Iris The Mistress of Myth and Magic

If the paintings of Canadian artist, Lisa Iris, seem familiar to you, it's because her sensuous imagery has beckoned to you over the years from divination cards (Doreen Virtue's Oracle Cards, Hay House), CD covers (New World Music), and magazine and book covers.

Majoring in Art History at York University, Lisa spent countless hours at the Royal Ontario Museum, making connections between art, spirituality and contemporary culture.  Exploring diverse cultures, Lisa Iris paints myriad expressions of life affirming beauty and renewal.  A member of the Fort Erie Arts Council, her studio is located at MYTHOS Art and Counselling, Fort Erie, ON. She is available for commissions.



 

Dionysus - Freedom from the Binary

Dionysus - Freedom from the Binary

Dionysus – his name evokes the sound of wine splashing into sun filled glasses and voices raised in celebration.  As wine engenders freedom of expression, Dionysus was “The Liberator” from social constraints.

The Cards You Are Dealt

crystal wind oracle deck

As Alice exclaimed to the Queen of Hearts, “You’re nothing but a pack of cards!” How accurately that describes the last few years of my life! This “pack of cards”, this amor fou, was imagined, championed, designed and refined into The Crystal Wind Oracle by Antonio DeLiberato of Crystal Wind.ca (link to website) and Creative Inceptions. (link to website) My gratitude is boundless. Being part of this project, over the years, was like discovering a crystal fountain in a garden and drinking the waters there. This luminous cup of inspiration is passed on to you.

Seduced by Scrying - The Dance of Light on Water

scryiong la

Scrying, or specifically Hydromancy, is the discernment of prophetic imagery in water.  Practiced in Ancient Greece and by Nostradamus in his prophecies, hydromancy has endured through the centuries. To be fascinated by hypnotic patterns of ripples and waves, and glints of light, while plumbing the depths for meaning, seems to be part of human nature.

Maiden, Mother…Crone?

Rethinking The Triple Goddess
By Summerstorm (Lisa Iris)

Am I alone or are there pagans “of a certain age” who find the term Crone absurd and demeaning? Is a tripartite definition of the Eternal Feminine too simplistic? Is the transition from Mother to Crone too abrupt? Is there something (like life) in between?

Who’s making this stuff up?!

The Crone Conundrum

I respect the Crone as a symbol for wisdom and the fruition of life’s journey. The publications, ceremonies and websites that celebrate the Crone are inspiring, but call me a crone if you want a black eye! How can I identify with a negative stereotype that persists, regardless of our efforts to reclaim it?
