The Alchemy of Possibility

Alchemy Oracle


ABOUT CAROLYN MARY KLEEFELD

SuggestionsA passion for creative expression and a lifelong fascination with spiritual transformation have ignited Carolyn to become an award-winning poet, writer, and artist. Born in Catford, England, Carolyn grew up in southern California, where she studied art and psychology at UCLA. In 1980 she moved to her cliff-side home high above the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur, California, where she studies, writes, and paints amidst the surrounding wilderness.

Carolyn is the author of nineteen books, a variety of which are used as inspirational texts in universities and healing centers, and are featured along with the writings of seven other acclaimed woman writers in a continuing course, The Other Half of the Sky: Eight Woman Writers, taught at Swansea University in Wales. Her books have been nominated for The Pushcart Prize, and her first book, Climates of the Mind, was translated into Braille by the Library of Congress. Her writings have been translated into Korean, Romanian, Arabic, and Bulgarian. Her poetry book, Vagabond Dawns, is published in both English/Korean and English/Romanian bilingual editions. Carolyn’s book of philosophical aphorisms, Soul Seeds: Revelations and Drawings, is published in bilingual English/Korean and English/Japanese editions and a trilingual English/Italian/Sicilian edition and will be published in bilingual Romanian, Chinese, Bulgarian, Spanish, and Bengali editions in 2015--2016.

Over the past two decades, Carolyn has created an extensive and diverse body of paintings and drawings, ranging in style from romantic figurative to abstract. The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University exhibited a retrospective of Carolyn’s paintings and drawings in 2008 and published an exhibition catalog, Carolyn Mary Kleefeld: Visions from Big Sur, with art from the exhibit and a commentary by museum curator and director, Michael Zakian, PhD. Carolyn’s art is featured internationally in galleries, museums, private collections, and multimedia presentations.
