Bio

Sioux is a dynamic being with a passion to bring communities together through the magic of creation and imagination. She turns rubbish into art, creating ferro cement garden sculptures with beautiful reflective coatings of glass and mirror mosaics. Also she paints and draws nature and nudes using ink, silver paint and gold leaf inspired by the ever-changing beauty and magic of nature. Sioux believes we are all artists. Imagination is the key to creating our magical realities bringing joy, love, peace and beauty to the world.

“I believe our imagination is the key to creation and manifesting our magical realities.
When I create, I am reminding us of the beauty and the journey in learning TRUTH
and LOVE to understand life. LIVE, LOVE and ENJOY! Activate your rainbow ray. Remember, beauty is everywhere!”
