About

Kezia Carter

I am an expressionist painter who enjoys meditation, manifestation, and world travel. I spent my childhood alone in the corner in my own little “Kezialand” living in ignorant bliss. When I started college I quickly realized that I wanted to do more than be a slave to money and then die. In my mid twenties I had a major shift in my paradigm and realized I didn’t know myself and that there was more to life than working at a job and paying bills. I explored all kinds of personality tests, my birth chart, and tarot readings to get to know myself better. I replaced the religion of my youth with meditation based spirituality, and created my own business to live life on my own terms. What I realized I needed was a visual form of meditation to help me understand my feelings and that would inspire me to achieve my desires.

So, I developed the Affirmation Portrait. It’s a work of art that depicts inner aspirations. Affirmation Portraiture has two major steps.

First, I channel a feeling into three art principles: color, form, and texture. This helps translate the feeling from a vague idea to a physical form that can be seen and touched. Second, I paint with a specific technique that requires building and revealing several layers of that color, form, and texture. The entire process invokes a deep meditative state and the result is peace, deep self knowledge, and a meaningful work of art to complete my sacred space.

 


 

“… Expression. Each painting in my set has its own unique style and characteristics that express the narrative I wanted [Kezia] to help me tell. Validation. Having a physical representation of some of my often unspoken, inner experiences portrays the depth and validity of my perspective. Transformation. From the rigid binary to the cosmic chaos and finally transforming to a rich and complex renaissance of colors and form. Kezia did an outstanding job of capturing the feeling and emotion I was looking for.”

{When asked to describe how the portrait makes you feel} Sophisticated.”

“… [Kezia] was very quick in responding to any of my communications and tailored her drafts to fit my interests very well. She has been extremely professional but yet also personal.”
