Connie Karleta Sales

Connie Karleta Sales is a contemporary figurative artist and poet. A digital artist, her line quality is created out of experience, and composition emerges as the woven words of a heart’s beat. Drawing her words within observation she find’s truth, and in truth, Connie finds the transcendent stories of building beauty in her world.

Naturally drawn to contemplative life, Connie has studied and practiced various forms of contemplative prayer/meditation since 1998. Centering Prayer and Lectio/Visio Divina are at the heart of her current practice; layering in Insight/Vipassana Meditation and Dharma study through the traditions of Theravada Buddhism.

Fragile and strong, her art echoes the vulnerability and resilience of the human soul. It slips between the thin spaces in our lives and emerges as beauty out of ash. Today, beyond the ash of torn bits of papers past rises drawing as living beings; words breathing as phoenix in redemption song. 

I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being
