I want to thank you for taking the time to peruse and see what I’m all about.
I am Rowena Wallen, a seemingly ordinary woman attempting to document a life well lived. If I am to describe myself, I would tell you that I am a woman on a mission, mini but mighty, small in size, but large in spirit. Describing myself with labels, I’d tell you that I am a wife, mother of four extraordinary humans, a nurse, an athlete, a writer, an artist, and end-of-life planner, and too many other things to label.
Life – living it, and also caring for and saving the lives of others. Art – creating and making something that comes from only you. Transcendence – going above and beyond, including death.
Why “The Soulful Artist?” Why not? To me it represents something beautiful. The creating of something that only you envisioned, that only you could make manifest. We all have something to offer the world. Something within us waiting to be birthed through our hands, or our voices, ourselves. Something that no one else can bring forth except for us. For me, creating is truly soulful – full of emotions, full of love. I feel that I have so much to offer the world as I create. I only wish that I had discovered my inner artist years – YEARS – before as I have only been painting seriously since late 2016, early 2017. It’s amazing to see what comes from Spirit and emerges from my own hands, what evolves when I place paint on a blank canvas. I say soulful because I feel it from the depths of my soul.
So, life, art, and transcendence … this is the documentation of my living, creating, and going beyond.
