Silverton born artist Niomi Starspires unveils her work at Nelson's OurGlass Gallery and Studio.

Niomi Starspires, was born just north of Nelson, in Silverton and grew up around artists and yogis.

She is now mainly a raw foodist for the last six years and teaches about the power of cleansing and change from the inside out. She is yoga teacher offering private classes, past time painter, lover of gardens, and is currently practicing bodywork in and around Nelson.

Starspires has been painting for 12 years, though the show at the OurGlass has been in the making for the last five.

Her art is the essence of inner experiences articulated through layers of colour. Much of her art is inspired by the passions she explores in life, such as yoga, breathwork, raw food and cleansing, meditation and spending time in nature.

She wishes to share a vision of the rainbow essence behind all things and how beautiful the world is when seen through this cosmic lens.

For those of you who choose to take home an original or high quality canvas print, she hopes this will support you and uplift you in your daily life. By remembering the essence and seeing the bigger picture, with one of these beautiful reminders, perhaps it will allow the mundane trials and tribulation in life, to take less of your focus.

If you would like to know more about Starspires or her multifaceted offerings, such as yoga or massage or the weekend retreats she will be co-facilitating this summer, email Starspires at: or find her on Facebook and mention your interest in her art.

Starspires work will be on display at OurGlass Gallery and Studio. There is an opening reception tonight starting at 7 p.m.
