Hello and welcome to Julie Gibbons Creative




Here, the work is a process of

relocation + reconnection | relating + remembering

by means of understanding

connecting SOIL + SOUL

Julie Gibbons is a heart centred and generous art mentor. She offers support and a wealth of information and materials. Because of my participation in her mandala programs, I have grown spiritually and artistically, feeling more confident, competent and courageous as an artist and human being. I love and appreciate Julie as a friend, mentor and guide in my Universe. She always helps us to find a way, and explore possibilities.

In Mandala Magic : ALIGNMENT we will return to an old way of being, in new ways.
