Artists Resume

Mitra Cline is an interdisciplinary artist guided by observations of changing environments. Her imagery evolves organically from her practice of dream and creative journaling that you can see here at MyArtistDiary.com.

Mitra’s art is about the conscious and unconscious patterns in people and how image connects to behavior and all life energies. As a California with no dominant culture, she seeks to find clues in all world mythologies, mental health, healing art traditions, spiritual/religious disciplines for expanding consciousness, alchemy, tarot, and astrology.

Mitra’s intention when making art is to embark on an inner journey of imagination and self discovery that leads to expanding awareness of our interdependence on others and fulfilling life experiences seven generations into the future!
