Reclaiming The Sacred Source by Lynn Creighton
“I create the female form from a sacred source of inspiration and commitment. This work has evolved from my deep inner conviction that female energy, fully aware of itself, will contribute essential wisdom to critical issues facing the planet.”
“Since earning a Master's Degree, I have for forty years created and exhibited bronze figures expressing the idea that women must reclaim their right and ability to celebrate themselves and life. These figures have been seen across the United States, several times in France, in Luxemburg, in South Africa, and in Japan. I have completed a book on the subject: Paradise Lost: The Mystery and Power of Women's Sexuality.
Currently, I am working on a series called "Love, What's it to Ya" about the positive and negative ways we approach love. My work is informed by a deep involvement in Native American transformational ceremonies which I have participated in and led for over 30 years. I have produced many events celebrating feminine energy and been interviewed for television.”
