FEATURED ARTISAN: Spirit Pervades Matter
Amanda Vela, artist and creator of Spirit Pervades Matter, focuses on creating art that represents a higher power and the life-force energy below the surface of existence, in order to inspire her audience towards a meditative state of mind.
Through her work, she draws light to the fabric of nature that connects us, and hopes to guide us toward a "socio-cultural spiritualization," and make the world a better, more enlightened place, not only though this paradigm shift, but through philanthropic and eco-conscious practices.
Spirit Pervades Matter donates 10% of its profits to support non-profit charitable organizations and uses recycled and re-purposed materials whenever possible, including framing all Amanda's original artwork in hand-made, reclaimed wood frames, creating art out of upcycled and found-objects, and designing eco-friendly, wearable art or "Fine Art Apparel" using 100% organic cotton, or recycled fabrics, water-based inks, and embracing a made-to-order philosophy to diminish waste and eliminate overstock.
