The artist has a Home Art Studio in which she receives (only by appointment) artists, writers, art teachers, museums and private art collectors, serious art lovers, and peoples with a spiritual and scientific background (who want to acknowledge more about the Metaphysical Hermetism and Christogrammic Art as the guided scientific manifestation of Inner Being of Man with the further neuronal activation of the pineal gland and elevation of human consciousness by the continuous practice of scientific remote viewing). Throughout the years, the artist had numerous dialogues with peoples of the New Age movement that are spiritually guided to explore and experiment the Arcane Mysteries of the Astral-Etheric  Spheres of Life with their intricate Matrix of the Human Soul-Spirit living in the realms of Non-Physical Universe.

 

The Metaphysical Christogrammic Art is a spiritual-artistic manifestation having its foundation in the Twentieth Century's Scientific Remote Viewing that was experimented in many countries of Europe and the United States. This art is the outcome of the Scientific Remote Viewing and has the genuine purpose to liberate the Individuated Mind of the earthly Human Being from the chains of life-long suffering perpetuated by the erroneous materialistic rationalism,  egotism with the daily expansion of the megalomaniac impulse/behavior, and analytical thought-inducing delusional ideas and belief systems/philosophies postulating that the Being of Man is the unique physical and intelligent entity created in the Universe. 

The materialistic culture of the present era misteaches the worldwide humans that life is an existential phenomenon in the physical space-reality of the planet Earth, while the present-evolved Homo Sapiens is a singular creation of the merciful God of the Universe, the Divine Maker who conceived our world of bestial cruelty, famine, falsehood, bloodshed, poverty, and ageless evil. These philosophical dogmas have had the historical outcome of spiritual devolution, alienation, and degradation of the Individual Consciousness that resulted in the tragic ceasing of the inborn genetic-Gnostic Cognition.  Furthermore, the earthly Human Being has lost the sense of honor and wisdom, the dignity of living in truth and righteousness, and the precious virtue of unconditional love due to the non-knowledgeableness and transgression of the eternal Laws of Creation.

 

As much as the simple transliterated words of the Soul and Mind can say, the Hermetic-Christogrammic Art has the latent force of empowering our Consciousness to return to the ancient Alchemy of the Inner Soul and Cosmic Habitat of Nature, to return to the lost Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Mankind from the past Aeons of earthly-sacred Life lived in honor and dignity by our long-forgotten ancestors - the peoples of the Patriarch Henoch and the Immortals of the First Atlantis.
