Ishka Lha (pronounced ee-shka la) is an internationally celebrated visionary artist, musician, writer, ritualist, and mentor from northern California. She grew up on a ranch atop rolling golden hills in a very rural area, where the quiet natural beauty of her childhood surroundings inspired endless imaginative play and creativity. At university, she earned a Professional Bachelor’s degree in Architecture, with an emphasis on natural building and eco-village design; and shortly thereafter, she set sail for the exploration and creation of art as a healing modality. She has since integrated her dedication to spiritual growth, harmonious design, and community building into a variety of applied formats for over twenty years.
Ishka is part of a growing visionary art movement dedicated to the evolution of consciousness, and approaches her creative process as a spiritual practice. Her art explores and celebrates the natural radiance inherent in all dimensions of life through the use of neo-traditional iconography and mythology, and she is especially interested in what universal archetypes, symbols, and forms have most helpfully guided humankind’s passage through time into greater avenues of mutual respect, understanding, and heartfelt livelihood. Her work is primarily featured in private collections, galleries, healing centers, and transformational art and music festivals across the globe.
