The painting you create at The Art Of Connection will be both beautiful and versatile. We love it as a table runner, wall hanging, curtain, and meditation blanket.

Theresa Gray

Theresa lives in a handmade home near Taos, New Mexico with her husband. Living off-the-grid fastens her to the land and allows her to live life in the flow—a moving meditation. The dynamic high desert shapes her movement, expands her vision, and inspires her work. She has been studying her environs and creating art for more than 30 years. Her art is an internal conversation marked by curiosity. Her paintings travel with her when she bakes, when she dances, when she makes love. Present to all that’s around her, the paintings and drawings flow onto the canvas . . . sometimes with effort, other times with ease, always with truth.

Michelle Shaw

Michelle was born to teach. After teaching English and coaching diving, yoga feels like coming home to her highest best self. Sharing movement, breath, and meditation with others is her passion. Committed to her own yoga studies and practice, her teaching and training has taken her to India, Italy, the Himalayan Institute, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, and beyond. Currently, she is a full-time E-RYT 500+ yoga instructor in western Michigan

"The mat is where I shift my own energy. 

I release tension, fear, and holding from my mind and body. 

I relax back into my true self. 

I always feel better after being on the mat."

~ Michelle Shaw

"I am always Painting.

When I walk to gather wood, I am grounding, observing, inhaling my surroundings. Taking in shadow, light, and color.

Marveling at the beauty, even in the mundane.

Celebrating, mourning the intensity of life and death around me.

Being present is my work.

I cross a threshold when I create."

~Theresa Gray


Theresa About Michelle

What I have learned from being friends with Michelle:

Michelle has taught me to treat myself with greater respect. My physical body. My mental body. My energy body. Because of our friendship, I value myself more.

My ideal time spent with Michelle:

Sitting around with our feet up. Or, taking a road trip adventure. No matter what we are actually doing, I love sharing my surroundings, my life with her. We even shared the flu over Christmas one year, and somehow that was beautiful, too.

One quirky fact about Michelle:

She LOVES specialty drinks. It’s all about the beverages for that girl. Everything from a beet root latte with unsweetened oat milk, to a vintage glass of pink bubbles . . . every sip is a celebration.

Michelle About Theresa

What I have learned from being friends with Theresa: 

Theresa continuously reveals beauty to me. I love how she shows me the splendor that’s all around me. And, she has taught me how to receive. To receive gifts, to receive gratitude, and to receive love.

My ideal time spent with Theresa: 

Moving slowly. Whether it’s soaking together in the hot springs at Ojo Caliente, strolling along the Mesa, sitting curled up next to one another for a great film . . . every moment is a gift. She is truly my person.

One quirky fact about Theresa:

Theresa can be hilarious about time and space. While she may drive under the speed limit, or build something out of scale, her creative vision and her presence always lead the way.
