The Healing Seed

The Healing Seed is an amazing, totally unique shop on Etsy. The verses/words and painting behind them is wonderful! I don't think I could pick a favorite from this shop, there are so many sayings I would love to hang in my house. Here is what John says about himself and his art:
I am a Scot, although I have lived in the Canary Islands for 5 years. I love both my homelands and of course please use my first name, John. I don't believe in this Mr.. as it creates a barrier. Life is about getting barriers down between people not putting them up. I am currently working on my BLOG it should be ready by September.

When did you start painting?
Ever since I can remember I have desire to make people feel better about themselves. And through art I have been able to hopefully do that. My partner is an Artist and she encouraged me to share my words in art form which I started in April 2009.

Where do you paint? What does your space look like? What would you love to add to it?
I work from home, fortunately we have a large kitchen which is where I love to work, however inspiration can come at any time so it always pays to have either a very good memory or a pen and paper handy. There is nothing I would add, rather in the future sometime to have studio looking out over the mountains and sea. No spare room for that at the moment.

Are there other crafts you would like to try?
I also provide tarot readings which I am in the process of adding to my shop.

What or who inspires you?
Life inspires me, by life I mean I could be walking the dog and see nature at work, or simple people watching. Probably though most importantly it is life experience, a thought,a memory or a feeling.

Do you have a day job?
My day job is running my finance business with my sons who I can rely on completely, this allows me time for my own work.

What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
I have greatly enjoyed creating every item, words and color. Probably the one which is most important to me and reflects who I choose to be is 'The Healing Prayer'!
