Carly Mojica is a painter, writer, and teacher living in the foothills of the Front Range in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It wasn’t until the birth of her son in 2010 and subsequent exit from the corporate world that she picked up a paintbrush. Once she discovered the process of intuitive painting, it felt like coming home and she hasn’t looked back. When she’s not in the studio, you can find her digging in the dirt in her garden, baking something yummy, or hiking through the mountains with her husband and little boy.
“I create through a process of intuitively layering vivid splashes of color with abstract imagery from the natural world. Images such as animal spirits, mountains, the moon, and trees often find their way into my paintings. There is magic in stepping up to a blank canvas with no preconceived idea of what it will become, just trusting that the painting will unfold in its own time and way. To me, painting is a spiritual practice – part meditation, part prayer – a dance between my soul and the canvas.”
“I believe that gathering women to create heals our souls and heals our world. I create a space for women to do the work of self-discovery in a safe and supportive environment. By showing up and doing the work of learning about ourselves and our deepest desires, we are able to authentically communicate who we are to the world. In my intuitive painting circles and book clubs, we work together as a tribe to become more authentic versions of ourselves. We are the torchbearers of the sacred feminine – the work we do impacts our lives, the lives of our families, the broader community, and the world.”
