Ona (born Anne Christina (Christie) Martin) is a spiritual artist who combines her intuitive and artistic talents to create and interpret beautiful spiritual art that transforms and heals at the level of the soul. She is especially known for her dynamic Spirit Animal art, and for her Soul Essence paintings that channel the healing energies of a person’s Divine inner light into visible form. Ona is also the creator of the Spirit Animal Awareness oracle card deck.
Ona was born with a crayon clenched in her fist. As soon as her mother found it, she snatched it away – and replaced it with charcoal pencils, kneaded erasers, artist’s quality paintbrushes and watercolors in tubes.
Ona spent the next 18 years playing with these wonderful tools. From the beginning, she used art to connect with the natural world – especially animals. Her mother had to put up first with cave paintings on the walls, and then with sketches of unicorns frolicking on the fridge. (Her mother was a good sport.)
When Ona was 11 years old, she began taking private art lessons with professional artist John W. Clark. John's traditional and rigorous academic approach and gentle direction gave her the best possible introduction to painting, developing in her at an early age a solid foundation for representational painting in an era when classical technique was often dismissed as ‘outdated.’
Later, Ona attended St. Olaf College, where she naturally majored in art. She remains very grateful for the excellent instruction she received there. After graduating. her paintings and sculptures earned recognition both regionally in the Upper Midwest and nationally.
While still in college, Ona began to realize that her paintings carried meaningful spiritual messages that helped her make sense of life. After completing training in Usui Reiki and becoming a certified Energy Scan Practitioner and energy healer, Ona emerged as a fully fledged spiritual artist, whose art is a uniquely beautiful form of energy healing.
Ona’s patrons treasure her art not just for its beauty but because it awakens something beautiful in the soul. To learn more about Ona or to commission a piece of spiritual art, contact her here.
