Inner Circle by Claudette Dean
By: Julie Hoyle, author of "An Awakened Life, A Journey of Transformation."

Whether we realize it or not, we are born seeking someone or something that can prove to us, we are not imagining it, there really is something greater than the small self we are led to believe ourselves to be. On first viewing Claudette Dean’s art, I could see that she had begun her own inner journey and that she was courageous enough to share what she had uncovered. Over time, as this journey has deepened, Claudette’s work has become more profound. Sometimes she takes the viewer by the hand, leading them gently to discover hidden secrets and wonders. At other times, the intensity and beauty of Claudette’s work is so powerful, it takes the breath away, opening a doorway to what an Enlightened Master meant when he once said:

The Heart is the hub of all sacred places. Go there and roam."

Shedding The Veil

Claudette is a true mystic and visionary. Her commitment to uncovering and expressing the Truth of Unity Consciousness or Oneness of Spirit is revealed in every nuance and detail of her work. The passion to share what she knows and lives is what makes her work so unique, pulsating with beauty, light, intensity and authenticity. Her art is like a mirror she lovingly holds up for us to see ourselves. In the union of her inner knowing and the expression of her abundant creative gifts, Claudette encourages us to celebrate what we have always known deep in our souls and have longed to come home to within ourselves:

We are Light. We are Truth. We are One.”

Welcome to My Journey


Embracing the unknown, I continue to explore and to express from my place of connection, and to follow the Golden Thread. Through the process, I find my gifts, and through the work, I share them. And the journey continues.

Remarks and Reactions


…Claudette Dean paints from the spirit, what she believes in that moment is true…what has become even more important to her, and artist like her, is that art can become a medium in and of itself. The process of art making can initiate a spiritual transformation on the part of the artist, and the potential also exists for this spirit to move in the viewers as they engage the work."

...Sometimes she takes the viewer by the hand, leading them to quietly discover hidden secrets and wonders. At other times, the intensity and beauty of Claudette's work is so powerful, it takes the breath away, opening a doorway to what an Enlightened Master meant when he said "The Heart is the hub of all sacred places. Go there and roam."

...Seeing Claudette's work, one can't help but conclude that she is spiritually connected to unwritten laws that foster harmonius coexistence free from the superficial veils of delusion that mask our true selves."

There are many functions to art, and telling stories of a different spiritual reality is the happy and intriguing by-product of Dean's need to create."
