Esoteric Guidance: Art and Writing by Allison Rennie
Poet and artist Allison Rennie creates work in a range of media including text, visual art, and esoteric guidance. Allison’s writing, bookmaking and photography fit into her spiritual practice as tangible entryways into more meditative thinking.
I enjoy the way that Allison presents her poetry on her portfolio website. Each poem is accompanied by an image – sometimes directly related to the subject matter, and other times more tangential. The poems themselves are simple but effective, using everyday language and subject matter to provoke deeper thought.
Allison also offers services as an “animateur,” someone that in the artist’s words “help[s] to create space that allows people to flourish, to learn and to make changes.” Allison’s portfolio work showcases her skills at animating and inspiring her own practice, offering confidence that she can do the same in others.
