Welcome to Sierra Dante Atelier
"Just one of God's pilgrims, painting flowers along the way, searching for Beauty, Goodness and Truth." ~ Sierra Dante
Sierra Dante is a pilgrim, painter and ceramic sculptrice. She is blessed to be guided by the Holy Spirit, who helps her unearth the treasures of the day. Each day she discerns her spiritual gifts as she continues her pilgrimage through prayer, study, creativity and charity.
Most days you will find her creating in her atelier; sketching, painting or sculpting. Other days, she will venture outdoors basking in the Light. She finds most of her inspirations beyond the walls; visiting the birds in the garden, hiking along the cactus or rambling along the country roads. But nothing compares to visiting an ancient cathedral and sitting in silence in God's Presence.
She is influenced by many of the great Saints, Theologians and Master Artists. However, she sees God's hand in everything beautiful, good and true. With His guidance, she tries to stay present, enjoying the freshness of the paint and trying to capture the light. She enjoys experimenting with allegorical themes, while including figurative, floral, animals and vibrant color in her paintings.
She lives in Scottsdale Arizona - The Valley of the Sun, where talented artists flock to this cool vibrant town. The Sonaran Dessert is unique in all the world with amazing light and landscape. She also enjoys creating from her old stoned atelier near Castelnaud-la-Chapelle France. The Dordogne Valley attracts artists, writers, history buffs, nature seekers, pilgrims and foodie travelers from all over the world to its fairy tale-like setting.
Sierra is pursuing a Master's degree in Sacred Art at Pontifex University, learning theology and history of sacred art through the traditions of Catholic Liturgy.
