Artist. Storyteller. Teacher. Curator.

Curating Consciousness Through Intentional Creativity®

Paintbrushes are Magic Wands....
Reveal Your Hidden Worlds Within!

Shiloh Sophia lives life as a great adventure! She is a curator of a community of creatives and a global musem called Musea. She is an artist who has been painting all of her life. She is a teacher who works with  beloveds around the world to bring Intentional Creativity into their lives. And she is a storyteller, dedicated to remothering mythology.

Shiloh Sophia’s work with image and language paired with the intelligence of the heart is taught in many fields, including Innovative Leadership, Corporate Teamwork, Group Process, Therapeutic Healing, Academia and in Ph.D. programs. As well as in hospitals, prisons, social work settings, and clinics. Shiloh and her team of over 450 Certified Teachers and Coaches around the world bring Intentional Creativity® as a tool for transformation in the healing arts. The impact of her work over time has created what she believes is one of the largest most well-established art movements in the world.

Most of all, Shiloh Sophia loves to have tea with her muse, which she does every day. She calls it, Red Thread Cafe and it gives rise to her Letter from the Red Thread Cafe found on this blog. As of 2021 she has written over 830 letters to her community and continues to produce poetry, paintings, and teachings relevant to our times. She hopes to provide encouragement for the journey.

According to Shiloh Sophia, curating how we think, feel, access and act creates the future we are co-creating. In response to the question, does someone have to be creative to experience benefits from Intentional Creativity, she replies: “Every bone in our body is a creative bone. Everything we do IS creative, we just aren’t thinking about it in that way. When we begin to approach all that we create with this level of mindfulness, our life begins to transform before our eyes.”

After working with tens of thousands of people for over 27 years in how creativity can catalyze our consciousness, her body of work lives at Musea, a Museum, and University. Her painting collection, a retrospective spanning over 20 years is housed at This page, features her writings and images.
