The Art Chariot
Art Chariot Mission:
Our purpose is to inspire and live inspired.
Born out of our dreams, guidance, hard-work and an outpouring of energy, love & support, the Art Chariot is a tiny-home and mobile gallery/artist studio with the driving purpose to share inspiration with the world. As a vessel for transformation, it stewards a simpler way of being & a sense of soul*full freedom we seek in our lives.
We believe that one of the greatest forms of freedom is connecting to our unique, creative essence. Through the power of creativity & collaboration, we can awaken to new possibilities for personal & planetary transformation.
We are currently on a country-wide art tour this summer to share our heARTs at destinations across the country and to kindle a spark of inspiration in the lives of everyone we meet.
It is time we unite our heARTs, minds & souls to coCreate a healthy & harmonious world. We are all geniuses & genies, painters & dreamers, mystics and magis of the grand
...Inspiration Ignites Action!...
The Art Chariot is a transformational lifestyle project.
In the early spring of 2016, my partner Timothy and I were inspired to build a tiny-home/ art studio on wheels. Faced with the necessity of having to move & frustrated by a shortage of affordable housing options, we discussed our desire for greater freedom to travel to share our artwork and to connect with our tribe around the country. We joked about the idea of building a trailer on the back of Tim's truck.
It seemed like a whimsical thought initially ~ but over the next several days, undeniable guidance from spirit was directing our movement forward.
We consulted with our dear friend Wonder Bob about the idea of building a "gypsy wagon" and he was enthusiastically onboard, generously offering his support as our visionary architect & builder. And thus, we decided to build a chariot together!
I must admit that while we knew it was going to be a huge energetic commitment to see it through, we could only speculate what this project would entail and how much it would impact us on every level of our beings. From life simplification, to sustainable living, to tangible building skills, creating the Chariot involved a dynamic process of evolutionary growth.
Over the course of over 4 months of intensive building, we documented our process of building the Art Chariot while living off the grid on Wonder Bob's property in Crestone, Colorado. Emerging from the canvas of life, the Art Chariot came to life like a painting is born from a blank canvas.
It carries a life & purpose of its own as if it is guided by life's unique evolutionary forces. Its creation was a process of true alchemy and the alchemy continues as we steward this vehicle in the world.
We will be expanding upon the dynamic process of building the Chariot as soon as possible as well as sharing our experience from the journey ahead.
