Anne Pryor is a Soul Painting Artist who channels the highest energy of the Universe into her artwork. She’s dubbed this profoundly intuitive process, Lovitude™, meaning Love and Gratitude Inspired by Spirit.
The Process painted for The Edge by Anne Pryor
Anne was inspired to start painting in 2017 after receiving messages from a former colleague and friend, Irene, who died within three weeks after being diagnosed with cancer.
When Irene became sick, Anne and another mutual friend, Risë Severson Kasmirski, spent as much time together as they could.
Anne and Risë remember visiting Irene in hospice…
“I asked Irene if she would please come back. I wanted to see the colors. I wanted to know what she was doing on the other side. I wanted to know everything that was happening over there,” Risë recalls.
After Irene passed, Risë volunteered to do the eulogy at her celebration of life. That was the first time Risë saw her deceased friend in her mind’s eye. Irene was there, looking over the entire event, smiling.
At the time, Risë could hardly believe what she was seeing, but she soon found out that wasn’t the last time her late friend would pay her a friendly visit.
Over the next few months, Risë saw Irene all the time… riding in the car with her, sitting on the couch in her house, standing in crowds of people, and eventually in her dreams.
Flash forwards a year later, Risë and Anne sought out spiritual guidance from an intuitive. They each booked separate individual sessions, but to their surprise, Irene came through with messages for both of them.
Risë was encouraged to journal and write a book describing her mystical experiences with the other side. Anne’s message from Irene was more cryptic:
“Drip ink on plastic and blow… but make em’ big.”
At first, the message didn’t make any sense, but Anne began to find clarity over time. Irene’s message was illuding to the thank you notes Anne used to make using little blobs of watercolor. Irene wanted Anne to paint.
The Invitation painted for The Edge by Anne Pryor
And just like that, Anne, a woman who was never an artist before, began channeling spirit through painting. Her unusual technique is created with ink, inspired by her breath (no paint brushes), and essential oils, including Frankincense, Myrrh. Each painting is infused with gold and painted on clear plastic and other media.
Her paintings have been said to elucidate, awaken, and activate souls. Her images have been featured worldwide: IANDS (International Association of Near-Death Society), the Memorial Service of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, the Minneapolis woman killed by a Minneapolis police officer, gifted to Matthew Desmond, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author of “Evicted,” at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, and enjoyed in collections globally.
