Welcome to Ardith Artist

Soulstraction is an experience that flows from love and wonder, purposeful exploration against gravity and conventional explanations, toward a pure cultivation of curiosity, love and aliveness across psyche and matter.


Building on the tremendous success of the inaugural The de Young Open in 2020, the second triennial of this juried community art exhibition will feature submissions by artists from the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. Artworks will be hung “salon style,” installed nearly edge to edge and floor to ceiling, maximizing the number of works displayed.

Designed to celebrate and support our local arts communities, this new exhibition allows artists to offer their works for sale and retain the proceeds. As in 2020, we will also acquire a selection of exhibition artworks for our permanent collection.


I wield brushes loaded with oil, tempera, acrylic, Indian ink, found objects, and sometimes the dust on the studio or forest floor. I have welded, done mosaic, sculpted with wood and wire, designed jewelry, done interior design, makeup and style-coaching, life-coaching, landscape design, and more.


“Soulstraction” is my abstract painting method. I enter the studio to find flow in the swirl of eternal time. I am a psychonaut who has journeyed in ancestral and astral fields outside Gregorian time, experiencing my body and mind as “portal and conduit,” plugged into alive expressive breath.

I feel color and form as blessed, sensate expression, and dance with brushes, paints and inks in a grand exploration of the miracle that each of us is. I lean into grief and healing, hope and gratitude, and wonder and awe, exploring emotion and questions with inquiry and prayer. My abstract paintings are designed as touchstones and counterparts to all else in our midst that is functional and literal.
