The Hermes and Me by Allison L. Williams Hill
Soul Portraits created for clients are featured on this page. They are the most in-depth of all of the art images because of vastness of a soul. A soul portrait is information that draws from everything the soul did in all of its lifetimes. The information that comes is what is relevant to the person in this time, at this time.
Art work will show graphically and energetically what you need to know at this time.
This art can be used for meditation as well. Below are soul portraits for individuals. including myself.
I met an African-American artist when he was teaching seniors at the James A. Bland Houses community center where we lived.
I would play with friends and other children and then go into the room and watched skilled elders use oils
to paint the still life of fruits and flowers or other arrangements. I looked at the arrangement. their faces, and the
path of the brush from the pallette to the canvas.
I observed for a couple of years before I got up the courage to bring in a portrait of a woman. This artist shared his wisdom
about color- how hair and skin have more than one color. The woman's face began to move out beyond the page with 3 dimensional
quality. I realized how flat it was before.
I don't remember the artist's name. I am still researching to find it.
In that time, I accepted art supplies from Mr. Alleyne, my 8th grade Spanish teacher who thought it would help me improve my grade
and a shop teacher who made a gift of a box of pastels and to whom I promised to write. I kept neither of those agreements.
I created art for the Spanish teacher but he never saw them. I thought they were not good enough and discarded them in the incinerator.
From lessons my mother purchased for me from the Famous Artists School,
traveling to Jamaica, New York for six Saturdays with my friend Karen Dixon who gave her time to be my traveling
companion and busied herself while I attended art classes for which I will always be grateful; attending the
High School of Art and Design; my major at Pratt Institute, and later, at Delphi University, taking Entura Art
with Patricia Hayes brought the love of art full circle, all contributed to what I do today
