Wewer Keohane received her Ph.D. from Union University in Creative Arts/Depth Psychology. She is an internationally represented and collected visual artist with pieces in permanent collections of several museums.
Wewer has been leading dream workshops for over twenty five years and has inspired dreamers, artists and writers to create from their dreams and to live authentic lives. Many of her students have gone on to great careers in the visual and literary arts. She has also lectured internationally, including being the featured speaker for the International Association for the Study of Dreams on the topic of art inspired from dreams and a presenter at the prestigious Aspen Writers’ Conference.
Wewer lives in the Roaring Fork Valley of Western Colorado with her husband, Steve, their wolf, Isabel, and as many cats as they can tolerate."My work is metaphor. Through the invisible quality of understanding the metaphor, I am intuitively guided to the visual interpretations. Through a contemplative process using found objects, recycled ephemera, words, color, metals, the metaphor awakens into a story. When I fully understand the metaphor I move to another, which most often presents itself to me through my dreams or meditation. This is a slow process as I am rarely ready to "art" the metaphors/dreams/visions without processing their meaning in my life, which can take days or decades. This process of art making is my individual and indisputable connection to the divine. To the outside world the work looks eclectic in nature. To me, it tells the story of my growth and the evolution of my authenticity....my quest to make the invisible visible. The continuing theme within all this work is balance. Balance with self, genders, relationships, life. All the metaphors seem to be exploring this deep desire to find a world without duplicity."
