History of the Art Space
Sienna was established at Bardia in 2015. It began with 2 classes, one for children and one for adults. After hiring space at Bardia, Sienna forced closure with little notice at financial year in 2018 and 10 popular independent classes, three terms into the School's new rebuild. Sienna relocated 6 months later, with a loss to business continuum, to the Human Highway Casula and virtually all new clientele. Erin transformed space at a commercially leased house with renovations and painting throughout the beginning of 2019, with new floors, ceiling lights, fresh painting, gate and the build of 7 classes. Unfortunately, that most recent Studio Location, The Sun House & Wave Studio has now force closed at 526 Hume Highway, Casula 2170 due to COVID-19 Impact post Term 1, 2020. Sapphire’s Light Healing that was established in 2019, is now being reshaped based on the Energy assessment of Field behaviours, during our Art School success in 2019. Erin currently is working on her design foundations in business, mostly administration with enthusiastic new-comers wishing to enroll when a new premises and Studio is located.
With academic & classical training, informed by personal art practice and ongoing professional development across areas, Erin aims for quality programming and personal development for her students across ages. She draws upon a strong technical foundation and conceptual flair, as well as experience in programming for a range of contexts and groups of people. Proudly, Sienna is built on 14 years of cross-terrain teaching, training and experiences collaborating in business-aware and community-close-to-heart consciousness.

Sienna Art Space Key Words -
Embedding Philosophy & Practice at the Heart
Appreciation for the Artistic realm & soul exploration
Art Practice - A constant evolution of understanding in artistic creation and the maker [in existence], acknowledging the material, conceptual and energetic patterning revealed and as a reciprocal mirroring of each series of entities, across time and space.
More simply, how we make and understand what we make, in art.
Note: An Explanation of what constitutes Practice depends on the Perspective of Individuals and the Group of Learners, with an appraisal of mindset, values, personal experience and soul level consciousness.
Technique – The method of creation, not restricted to a formalized set of rules and regulations– but in acknowledgement there are different approaches and sequences of understanding that we perform in creating art.
Ideas – The processing of thought through image creation and dialogue.
Experience – This is emotional, mental, multidimensional, energetic and physically armoured – it is both a personal and collective agreement of passage and understanding, with intermediary responses. Time plays a role in the sequence of understanding, knowledge acquisition, and evolution of the soul – as – a creative.
Holistic Arts & Healing Awareness
Therapeutic Soul Practices - With intuitive discovery and energetic awareness, concepts of 'self', 'other' and the 'universal' become part of artistic and expression practice. The nature of the soul practice is hybrid, individual and characterised by creative links 'in healing' but also by the increased wellbeing observed and given testimony to. Artistic terrain takes into account cross-discplinary attitudes to creative arts to include: artmaking, dance, movement, writing, musicality and percussion, spoken word discussion, as well as engagement with energy awareness as both informal and formal development looking at expressive release: breathwork, song, energy hygiene, connection through meditation and motivational experiences for greater confidence and greater good in group situations.
Soul-based Art Therapy © - Soul-based Exploration recognises the perimeters of the energetic framework of Soul to include energy health, related awareness for psychological principles, evidence-based healing intersections and contemporary thought aided by intuitive understanding of historical and ancient connections for wellbeing and spirit release. The therapeutic lies in cross-disciplinary approaches, serving need for self development, motivation and clear-confidence. Art is a means for intermediary knowledge to present itself, for the client to access self-identifiable personal energy and awareness, as well as the Energy therapist to engage in conversation using principles drawn from Holistic domainship, Psychology and Art Therapy while maintaining awareness for where they do not alleviate lowered self-esteem, strenghthenpersonal-well-being and contradict perimeters of healing.
Holistic – Looking at the connectivity of the landscape of a person’s self-discovery and well being, through the lens of mental and emotional balance, and seeing energy as not an aspect but a basis for existence. Soul Discovery acknowledges the quotient or series of understandings informing current experiences. Modalities exist as a range, with evolution into the future, to assist alleviation of types of challenges individuals experience and to enable personal growth and equilibrium where disease may be dissolved, or in more serious cases, self-managed with support.
Reiki Universal Healing - Developed by Mikao Usui, Reiki is a well-accepted, widely-used method, originating from Japan. Reiki works on the etheric and causal body of the aura and working to also ease emotion for relaxation.
'Rei' means spiritual and 'ki' means lifeforce energy. It is commonly known as 'hands-on healing' but is not restricted to the hands-on method. The Rainbow Reiki Method, developed by Kendall, The Heart Hive, also informs Erin's practice.
Crystal Healing - Crystals are vibrational energies that can be used as an aid and complimentary tool with vibrational healing, energy protection and spiritual clearing.
Chakras - Chakras are the energy centres of the body, human and animal, and include earth chakras and other lifeforms including plants. Vibrational Healing Sessions acknowledges the 10 major chakras and minor chakras of the human body, that hold information about soul awareness and personal functioning.
Balancing the chakras involves ongoing personal development, working through personal life challenges and meditation.
An Earth Shaman is initiated through a series of guided awarenesses in Land Concepts, Relational Healing Aspects with Soul Script analysis embedded in the discovery learning enquiry through Soul Guide. The Lineage is a diverse connection affording responses to Native American, Southern tribe heartscape, Maori connection and Paja Indian familiarity. As such Spirit describes it as a willing of deserved rights, with soul script perpetuating service to the land and people heritage. New guide familiarity has giving-honesty, a willing for relationships in home connections as shared terrain and instilling importance for the Indigenous tribal ancestors. In Australia, our ancestors like New Guinea are the voice, I am a listener. The notion of geomancy is not a focus, the conversation as a dialogue, looks at the relationship of Land healing responses, and impact on wildlife and people illness.
Metaphysics - The study of Spiritual Energy and the correlations between the Earth Plane, Physical Energies & the embodiment of energies as Beings of Light. It includes the study of the human form, the relationship between anatomy, mental situation, emotional causes and energetic centres, auric presences, spiritual planes, past lives, karma and soul level awareness.
