Welcome! I’m grateful you found your way to Soul Kindling. My name is Ally. I’m on a quest to awaken people to their sacred, creative story with painting, drawing, writing and visioning as the tools. I offer soulful art workshops where life is explored as a sacred story. If you’re looking for a restorative, introspective way to tend to the tales you’ve lived, I’d love to work with you. Themes such as identity, belonging, transitions, rhythm of life, ordinary magic, the mother archetype, inner Wisdom and crafting personal vision are a sampling of where my passion lies. Working with story, poetry, myth, symbol and the in-between spaces of Scripture guide my work. You’ll find I have a deep love for the walk of Christ and a profound respect for the Sacred Feminine woven from the very beginning in the book of Genesis. I welcome all traditions to the table as I guide people toward healing and fresh vision for their lives. No painting experience is necessary to come! I offer workshops in my home studio space, by individual appointment and on location.

Another passion I have is facilitating Red Thread Circles. Red Thread Circles are a way to bring people together in community, to hear from all voices, to claim sacred responsibility and celebrate differences. The red thread is a symbol of hope, ancestry, prosperity, connection, love, peace and more! If you’re intrigued, more information is over here.

If you’re a dreamer or a poet — welcome. If you’re a seeker or a mystic — welcome. If you’re a wild rebel or a joy seeker — welcome. If you need a hug — welcome. Look around, see if what I offer resonates with your needs. Please reach out with any questions. It would be my pleasure to connect with you and dream alongside you for a future Soul Kindling workshop or Red Thread Circle.

Peace & Blessings,

Trained by the artist, Shiloh Sophia, I’m certified as an Intentional Creativity® teacher with the Intentional Creativity Foundation.
