As a child, her young imagination spread out far beyond the high plains of West Texas. The bleak landscape provided an atmosphere for her to fully indulge in creative exploration such as music, dance, theatre and crafting.

Her passion ignited when she discovered healing arts, the power of healing, and the beauty in helping people improve their quality of life. She worked as a massage therapist for ten years, and began to seek ways to incorporate this love for healing into her artistic expressions.
The discoveries continued as her innate talent for creating gifts of nature transformed into the manifestation of ceremonial tools, costume, headdress and adornment. After picking up the brush and palette for the first time in 2002, Ka recognized her profound gift in the paint medium. Teaching herself how to paint, she began to delve deep into her heart, bringing forth powerful visions.

“I believe that what we create is what we experience in life. By using our creative gifts we can choose how to shape our reality, and deeply impact the lives of those around us. The aim of my art is to bring more beauty into this world. When I experience beauty, I feel my heart open. When I have an open heart, I experience more love, peace, joy and healing in my life. I hope to inspire an awareness of sovereign empowerment in our collective heart, to create the beauty we wish to see in the world.I hold great reverence for our collaborative potential to bridge Heaven and Earth through our love and imagination.” -Ka Amorastreya
