About Oonagh Elisa

Life, this moment, a vibrant adventure. I am blessed to be awake to to the magnificence of what’s around me, to be in harmony with my soul’s calling. 

My art is a profound communion with the divine. I listen in silence and then co-create with the mystical energies of creation. The paintings I co-create are collected throughout the United States, as well as across the sea in Ireland. 

I moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico four years ago from Mount Desert Island in Maine, my home for many years. What a blessing to experience the vast southwest sky! I create ceremony each morning in reverence for the stunning Earth and all she shares with us, and bless the seen and unseen for their roles in guiding us with Love.

I completed my master’s training in Painting From the Source with Aviva Gold in Ojai, California, have a master’s degree in museum/art education from the University of Maine, was on the art faculty at Acadia Senior College, and taught SpiritSong Intuitive Painting on Mount Desert Island and in museums in Maine. For the past 4 years, I have shared private intuitive painting sessions with many New Mexico residents. 

I look forward to meeting you.
