Kirsten Todd - Art at Vixen Lancashire, United Kingdom
  Back to profiles

Born in Lancashire, painting and drawing since a young child, I gained a degree in graphic design and pursued a career in design for over 25 years, whilst continuing to paint. Painting is my passion and my purpose. Now concentrating fully on painting professionally. Specialising in portraits and abstracts, working in acrylics capturing vibrancy, energy, strength, balance and beauty in my work.

The Entirety of my portrait work at the moment is centred around the Rise of the Divine Feminine. We all have masculine and feminine energy within us and for the last few thousand years it has been out of balance with the masculine energy, having a much stronger influence and in control of the way we feel and think. This imablance has caused the patriarchal society we live in, fuelling aggresssion, war, anger, greed, materialism, over consumption, selfishness and dominance over women. Now there is a rise of the divine feminine energy streaming into the planet and within us seeking to rebalance our bodies, our inner world and by extension our outer world and planet. This feminine energy brings compassion, strength within, heightened intuition, truth, wisdom and spirituality. My portraits highlight the rise of the Divine Feminine energy in this time of great change as we, our planet and our universe are on our journey of ascension to a new vibration. I feel I need to get this message out to as many people as possible in my own unique way. My paintings celebrate strong women, showing within them inner strength of a warrioress, seeing that vulnerability and pain of a hard life lived, showing endless determination and endurance. They highlight the struggle of women to be accepted as equals, giving women a voice, seeing beauty within and celebrating cultural diversity. If we listen to our intuition, we can tap into unlimited strength, compassion, wisdom and guidance. We can shine our inner light and show the world our true essence and true powerful nature, empowering ourselves and the world around us. I feel I need to spread this message far and wide as a wake up call to us all to rise up, raise our vibrations to bring balance to the world and aid our ascension path as great changes are occurring whether we as individuals recognise it and are on board with it or not. The planet and universe is ascending to a new level and those that embrace it will have a smooth transition, those that do not will have a more bumpy ride.
