Guiding Spirit Design - Shamanic Portraits by Mia Bosna


Shamanic Portraits:
Artwork inspired by Shamanic Journeys
for the individual

Inspirational stories are embedded into each original piece of art.

A Shamanic Portrait is a glimpse into our divine self, the self that understands our true purpose and our special talents. It is a personal portrait of your spirit guide's message to you. Within it you will find the inspiration to make the choices that lead to a healthier, harmonious life.

I invite you to learn more about how a Shamanic Portrait can provide you with a deeply personal and spiritual signpost for your life's journey.

The best place to start is by viewing Shamanic Portraits I have created for others in the Shamanic Portrait Gallery.

    Work Experience

    I started out working as a full time designer and art director for several advertising agencies. In 1985 I began freelancing as a designer and illustrator working for the advertising, and publishing industries while finishing up my undergraduates degree at night.

    In over fifteen years of freelancing as an illustrator, I've found it a necessity to change styles as the markets fluctuated in order to work as an artist. This has allowed me to explore several mediums and techniques and to work in several different markets. My commercial work has been used for printed materials such as: book jackets, magazine covers, feature and editorial work, packaging, CD and cassette covers, advertisements, promotional materials, Institutional and Corporate collateral materials.

    My fine art has been shown in galleries and is collected privately.

    A Totem is any natural object, being, or animal whose energy and archetypal powers we feel a strong connection to. Each animal totem symbolizes its unique abilities and qualities. This painting is the first of a new series of prints that focus on animal totems. Each painting will reveal the information received from each animal spirit by way of the shamanic journey.
