Spiritual Dimensions of Creativity

About

Marlana Stoddard-Hayes started drawing at the age of two, which quickly became a daily practice to include every wall in the house. Now she is a working artist with a 30-year international exhibition history. Represented in Portland by Butters Gallery, she has done residencies with the University of Michigan, Minnesota State University, Pacific University, the Neskowin Coast Foundation and the Kansas Arts Commission, all within the light of helping others to see. Recently, her work has been published in the journals Orion, Calyx, Fungi and Coastal Living. She remains very concerned about the arts education of the public and was an artist-in-residence with rural programming for many years, where she applied her knowledge of creativity to underserved populations. Noticing the absence of a spiritual component in much of contemporary art discourse, she took her dissatisfaction with that practice and developed pedagogy to transform it and apply it to her teaching methods with increasing depth of engagement from her students.
